Hey you!  See that glass to the right?  You do?  Good!  That is not a stinking pilsner glass!  Got it?  Good!

Sorry for being aggresive, but I can not tell you how often people mistake a Vase a.k.a Weissbier glass as an appropriate vessel for pilsners.  The wide mouth allows for plenty of foam and thus aroma to hit the nose enhancing flavor.  As you raise this glass to drink the surface area further increases allowing for even more aromas.  The style has been around for sometime, but the flowing curve more than likely did not originate until the 1900’s.

This glass is appropriate for wheat beers and wheat beers not pilsners.
