Mrs Stoat doesn't like normal barley-based beers, but positively loves to chug a blikkie or two of weissbier of an evening. She describes weissbier, particularly the dark kind, as "alcoholic bread in a bottle", and she's probably right. Not that I would say so if she wasn't.
Some varieties, such as the top end of the AugustinerbrÃ¤u range, are proper falling-over water, coming in 500ml bottles at 7.5% abv.
Since weissbier is essentially bottled bread, drinking too much of it on a regular basis will lead to a Bayerisches Bauch, or 'Bavarian Gut', which is like a beer belly, but far more Teutonically refined.
Belgium produces a substance called witbier, which is somewhat like weissbeer's Beneluxlaan cousin with leukaemia, being somewhat weak of flavour and slightly anaemic.
