Bottles and cans are great, but we'll be drinking our beers from a glass. The right glass ensures a beer smells and tastes how the brewer intended. The Weizen Glass (or weissbier vase) resembles something you'd find at an old soda fountain. It's tall and slender frame curves inward from the base, flares out to a bulb near the top, and then tapers in again. The narrow shape traps in a fluffy head and allows lush, fruity and spicy aromas to be directed to the nose.
