Berlin's traditional wheat beer is drunk with a schuss, or shot, of either green waldmeister syrup (germandeli.com) or red-raspberry syrup in it. Most pleasant. Another popular variation is "The Radler" which is equal parts beer and sparkling lemonade, served with a lemon twist. Prosit! Recipe courtesy Esquire.
