Author Notes: In honor of St. Patrick's Day I combined my German Waldmeister with a Harp premium lager. This added a distinct sweet herbal flavor to the beer; it's not just your green food coloring. This is an Irish riff on the Berliner Weisse. I suggest adding fresh ginger to the Waldmeister for a some added zing. Sagegreen

Serves 1, easily doubled for a friend

  • 2 tablespoons Waldmeister (woodruff syrup)
  • 4 one inch long, thin slices of fresh ginger, optional
  • 12 ounces Harp premium lager
  1. For a variation, first add the ginger to the Waldmeister and let it rest for half an hour or up to a few hours.
  2. Pour the Waldmeister (without the ginger slices) into the lager. Cheers, Prost, Sláinte!

Thanks, Joan. I just added the ginger, which makes this even better, IMO!

Mmm...mmm! Wish I had one right now! Does the Waldmeister have a flavor?

Oh yes, the woodruff has a distinct herbal kind of flavor in a sweet syrup. I like this better than the Berliner prototype.

Have you ever made maywine? I have some sweet woodruff (just starting to spring out of the ground) and made maywine last year. I like the flavor of it.

I love Maywine, but have not made it myself. Great idea. Bet that would be nice with your brie and grape tart.

Great photo! Love me some green beer.

It's a German syrup; since they have such purity laws about their beers, they have lots of over the counter add-ins.
