A regional specialty of Berlin; referred to by Napoleon's troops in 1809 as "the Champagne of the North" due to its lively and elegant character. Only two traditional breweries still produce the product.

In Germany, it is classified as a Schankbier denoting a small beer of starting gravity in the range 7-8°P. Often served with the addition of a shot of sugar syrups ("mit schuss") flavored with raspberry ("himbeer") or woodruff ("waldmeister") or even mixed with Pils to counter the substantial sourness. Has been described by some as the most purely refreshing beer in the world.
