Now, I like me a good Hefe Weizen. I've been drinking them since 1975 (my 1st tour in Germany).
In '99 I went to Berlin (after a tour in Kosovo) and ordered a few of them. I went to Alexander Platz and spoke a bit of Albanian with one of the locals, but that's another story.
Berliner Weiss' actually come in red, with a raspberry syrup, and a green, which I didn't ask about because I was not impressed with either.
I promptly ordered a HW.
I believe I'll stick with my HW.
I'll be back in Germany for a couple of weeks in July.
I have to go to: Frankfurt, Mainheim, Kaiserslautern, Ramstein, Baumholder, Friedberg, Budingen, Schweinfurt, Kitzingen and Vilseck. I've been to 8 of those cities already. Lots of beer sampling to be done. I wonder what kind of beer I'll bring back...
It's a tough job but someone's got to do it!
