I have developed quite a love for Berliner Weiss’. I love the tartness on a hot day, and like not getting blasted with a too high ABV. I remember reading about the use of syrups in the BJCP guides – locals would dose their Berliner Weiss with a shot of either raspberry or woodruff syrup. The raspberry was easy to replicate but had no idea what woodruff even was beyond the fact it was an herb.
And then I saw this in Starsky’s in Hamilton:
It tastes good in soda, but in a beer like Sawdust City’s Coriolis Effect, it’s sublime.
