A strong and malty German wheat beer combining the best wheat and yeast flavors of a Weissbier with the rich maltiness, strength, and body of a Bock. The style range includes Bock and Doppelbock strength, with variations for pale and dark color.
Munich version is stronger, and contains Munich malt in bulk, almost in the same amount as Pilsner malt.
