Berliner Weiße

Berlin Style Beer Cocktail

Berliner Weisse is a lightly-sour, low-alcohol beer. The Berliner Weisse beer developed into the favorite drink of the Berliners around 1700 and is still an all-time favorite in Germany.

The Berliner Weisse is a bright, top-fermented draft beer. The alcohol content is about 3% and makes the Berlin beer an especially popular drink, which is drunk with or without a shot of woodruff or raspberry syrup from a bowl-shaped glass with a stem.
