Sounds like Berliner Wasser, a clear, tasteless, low alcohol beer used to mix with syrups to make drinks in Germany.
 
2012-07-24 12:28:59 AM
is it even possible to make alcohol tasteless?
 
2012-07-24 12:37:07 AM
So, it's a really weak vodka & soda?

Why would you drink that?
 
2012-07-24 01:29:27 AM
That sounds like a fail. Have you never tried Moscato? Why would I drink anything else?

The kids will love it.

Goddammit, now I have that horrible 70's song in my head.

Like oxygen.. blah blah.. too much it gets you high

This will make it much easier to get drunk. Unfortunately, you will still barf, but it won't be bad coming back up

... how the hell can you get sick-drunk from something that's 4% abv?

I mean ... if you need a loaner, I can let you borrow a magnifying glass. You know, so you can locate your balls.

Drink enough alchohol of something and yo will get drunk. It's farking laws of physics, dude

I gotta go with no on that one. A big enough person, and a small enough alcohol content and it's a push at best.

Say.........Kevin James.....with Coors Light. NEVER GONNA GET DRUNK.

Or... that fat comedian that calls himself fluffy, not fat. You give him a case of Corona, and you'll have a pissing monster and an empty case, but no drunk anywhere.

Hmm, add a dash of grapefruit juice and it might even make for a reasonable similarity to Chu-hai. Loved that stuff when I was in Japan, have had no luck finding it in the states.
 
2012-07-24 10:20:49 AM
As mentioned before, I will stick with vodka soda thank you very much. A heck of a lot stronger and the same amount of calories, not that obsessive about that sort of stuff. Ack I had FOUR glasses of wine last night. Oh the bloatation!

Popular with the ladies I bet. Any guy seen drinking this will be have to turn in his man card.

Ever been to your local gas station/fast food joint and have the fountain drink machine run out while getting something clear such as Sprite? Ever tasted it? WTF would want to willingly drink something like that? My first reaction is to find somewhere to spit it - quickly.

If memory serves in was actually Berliner Weisse mit Schuss (wheat beer with syrup) which was a drink generally served to older women.

Hell I'm nowhere near the size of those guys and I can tell you that drinking a case of corona would make me piss a lot and feel just about as fat as those guys and not at all drunk. I don't even drink that much either. I guess I just have a high tolerance for the booze.
 
2012-07-24 12:13:00 PM
So it's basically a weak vodka soda that isn't because it started as a brewed beverage.

The only reason this product exists is because of crazy laws that treat premixed cocktails made with distilled spirits differently than 'malt beverages'. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just have sane alcohol laws rather than this farce of a product?

Indeed, and it's not tasteless.

What you do not smell is called Air. It is odorless, tasteless, dissolves instantly in liquid, and is among the more deadlier poisons known to man. All right: where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right and who is dead.

Dear lord, my brain is weird. When I read the headline, my brain went to an odd variation of a classic scene.

"Smell, but do not taste."
"I smell nothing."
"What you do not smell is Air. It is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, and has 4% alcohol by volume."
*The man in black fiddles with two massive pitchers behind his back*
"All right. Where is the alcohol? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right, and who is drunk."

Sounds sucky. I drink beer for taste as well as the drunk-making.

Back when Colorado washed a conservitard red state you could only buy 3.2 beer on Sundays. I can attest it is very possible, even for fatties, to get drunk on low alcohol beer. Though it really helps if you have a beer bong.

I'm sure this product will not be used at all by college aged males to get females in an easy state.

Yeah, they're a bit sour, if I remember right.

Only reason I know anything about them is a couple years ago I picked up some DFH Festina Peche which is similar to a berliner wiessebier. Festina Peche is a great summer beer, also.

But just try to find a good one in Berlin. All they had were the pre-mixed Bartles and James tasting crap. I'm there's some place that still serves it right, but it wasn't easy to find. You'd think differently, being named after the damn city and all...

I've had several versions of guaro, and that shiat tastes like paint thinner. Maybe the kind you have is different...

Bruxellensis, sounds like you've been there. Do you remember that at all the concerts, sporting events, volksfests, the drink vendor that inadvertently wound up with the contract was either Schultheiss (shiathouse) or Berliner Weisse? These were not the great beers of Germany more like their version of American Budweiser. They were cheap and they had alcohol in them and a passing resemblance to beer.

I drank them when they were all that was available but not my first choice.

/would kill for a real bratwurst from the Imbiss stand by the Argentinishe Alle U-Bahn stop

Just got back from Costa Rica. I can attest to this man's statement.

$6.99 for a 4 pack?

If what you want is a weak drink that doesn't taste like booze much, it'd be a lot cheaper to start with a cheap bottle of vodka and dilute it yourself.

Yeah, I've been there, but never ordered one, or found a place that serves a real Berliner Weisse. I've brewed them myself, using a traditional recipe and process. It's actually a bit sour, with some noticeable tartness. Very refreshing, but they only weight in at about 3-4% ABV max. I would take one of those over a Budweiser any day.
 
2012-07-24 12:42:47 PM
"tasteless" like vodka? uh... right

This would be interesting from the perspective that it should keep you hydrated while drinking (equals less hangover) but carbonated drinks like this tend to be unpleasant. This drink seems exactly like Zima but I don't know if Zima was malted. Reminds me of wine coolers, blech.

Carbonated alcoholic drinks always fark up my throat something terrible. Even just one drink will leave me with a sore throat for days afterwards.

gopher321: Popular with the ladies I bet. Any guy seen drinking this will be have to turn in his man card.


Yeah, because it's more important to pound whiskey and crush beer cans on your head to impress your fellow 'men' than just to actualy drink something you like.
Beer sucks. It doesn't taste good. Maybe after drinking it enough you can aquire the taste, but the same could be said for eating poop. Tastes shouldn't have to be aquired, and you shouldn't have to do things you don't like just to seem 'normal'. You like to drink gin because of the complexities of the juniper berry? Fine. You don't like the bitterness and would rather drink butterscotch schnappes? Also fine.

Exactly. If I'm going to drink vodka and soda (I prefer ginger ale over soda)... it better be close to a 50/50 mix. 4% isn't going to do shiat for me.
