The German Weissbier is very famous also outside of Germany. Weiss is German for white but the name could also refer to wheat which is Weizen in German. On the label of Paulaner Weißbier you actually see this special German letter: ß
This actually means double-s but the letter ß only exists in German as far as I know. On the label you can also read Hefe which is yeast and Naturtrüb which means unfiltered/naturally cloudy.
So we know this beers contains wheat and is moreover not filtered. Despite the fact Weissbier is really refreshing and suits well to a lot of delicious foods it might not be the best idea to consume it if you are Coeliac. I am sorry for all who can not enjoy this beer, it tastes excellent and has a good score on ratebeer.com

I tested with a threshold of 20 ppm. The limit of detection depends on the number of drops taken from the extraction solution, please find some more information here.
Test result: A clearly visible red line appears on the right of the test stick ( T ). The red line indicates the presence of gluten equal to or above 20 ppm. As the line is dark red I assume this beer contains a lot of gluten. The blue line on the left test area ( C ) is a control line and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Even though this test is positive please note it is not a medical advice – see my facts page.
