Buried in another thread is a discussion about adding lemon to Hefeweizen which some people seem to think ditract from the beer and probably is a US thing.
Often a lime is served with Mexican beers. My opinion is that like bad tequilla, it takes the edge off of mediocre Mexican beers.
I had a Belgium Beer called Berliner Weisse which is traditionally served with a shot of raspberry or green woodruff syrup. In the link below, the beer fan says to drink it straight. Tried that. I say, add the sugar. The straight version is horrible sour in a bad way to me.
Looking around I found a wheat beer which was served with with a spicing of coriander and salt which was said to bring out a tang in the beer. The same beer was sometimes laced with sherry or the raspberry / woodruff syrups.
So, are there any other compatablie additions to beers? Or is it a beer sin to add ingrediants?
