This drink is remarkable! I used to order it at my favorite bar in Gelnhausen, Germany! If you don't like the taste of beer alone, you will love this drink!

I did try this recipie when I was also in Germany and it does remove the normal taste of the beer reguardless of who made the beer. In Germany the beer is stronger and the taste is stronger and this removes the taste Read More

I am from Germany and did not care that much for this one! Back home we use not just any beer to make this kind of drink. We use Hefeweizen! Can also be made with banana juice or Coke!!! 'Banane Weizen or Cola Weizen' Coke and Sprite (lemon soda) are the only things we would add to a normal beer like pilsner or export. Coke makes it a "Dirty Beer-Dreckiges" and mixed with Sprite it is called "Radler" In Germany Beer is SERIOUS BUSINESS:o) Read More

I guess I just love my beer naked because this didn't really do anything for me. A couple of my guest thought it was pretty good but too sweet. Read More

I drink this often - but when I can't find cherry juice - I have found that diet cherry pepsi and beer are FANTASTIC together. Read More

I JUST tried this with a bottle of Miller Lite and 1/2 cup of cherry juice from some homemade canned cherries (dark rich juice). It really does cut down the beer flavor/ kick part. I think a 1/4 cup more of cherry juice could give it a more sweeter cherry flavor but then again I like sweet! Thank you for sharing this recipe!! Read More

oops i misread this recipe (not unusual for me!) and put in half a 12oz bottle of beer with 1/2 c of cherry juice. i'm not a beer lover and i'm desperately searching for recipes with beer bc we have 3 cases or some other crazy number of cases in the house--and we're not beer drinkers! i don't know how to get rid of all the beer we have so i thought i'd give this a shot. it does remove some of the taste of the beer but i can still taste a small bit of it so 1/2 c of cherry juice to one bottle of beer wouldn't do it for me but this is fine. kind of tastes like seltzer water with a hint of cherry. thanks for the recipe!

As a serious German beer drinker this should only be done with a Heffeweitzen. Then it is delicious on the patio on a warm summer day. Read More

Another thing we had when we were in Germany - Kinderbeer. Wonderful. You can use a good shot of Roses Lime Juice or any Lemon Lime Soda Read More
