It must be something wrong when talk about wite ale in German and paticully in Bavaria its the "Weißbier" wery popular but that is not bai pijiu in chinese I have evern in Beijing at Lufthasa shopping mall at Paulaner Brauhaus dricked "Weißbier" In Chinese it is 小麦啤酒 xiao mai pi jiu the Weißbeer is made from Wheat. So Weibier doesnt refer to its colour. Even the staff in this Beijing Paulaner Brauhaus call it 小麦啤酒 .小麦 refers to wats it contain.
So it would be more correct to use the term xiaomaipijiu 小麦啤酒. this type of beer also call Weizen Bier.
