Brauerei Weihenstephan - 1809 - 500ml
Berliner Weissebier - 5%
My first Berliner. Hazy golden hue with a foamy head that subsides quickly. Has a tart aroma with some lemon zest and wheat. I knew I was going to like this one. Nice flavors of lemon, apple, and bread. Slight sourness. Light mouthfeel with a crisp, dry finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. Will be revisiting this one on a temperate San Diego afternoon.

Cascade - Kriek Ale - 750ml
Sour Ale - 6.60%
Oregon, U.S
Mahogany color topped with a nice tan head. Sweet, sour cheery notes off the nose. Getting some oak also. Nice flavor of tart cherries, yeast and oak on the finish. Not the best Kriek, but a good example for this side of the pond. I'm laying one down for future inspection.
Only three left as of 5/3/09. Hope to get another order this week.
