Today is National Beer Day but I’m not a beer drinker or at least not a regular beer drinker- and maybe that’s why Leinenkugel’s Berry Weiss has become my summer drink on the deck with dinner. I wanted something light, with a fruity-ish flavor and some alcoholic fizz and I want it when I walk in the door. Yeah!
Okay, maybe it’s not light in calories, but it is light in taste and not really sweet. I’m a wine drinker, but my tastes are evolving. In college we could only afford 3.2 beer, so that’s what I drank though I didn’t enjoy it much. When I could afford wine, inexpensive but sweet wine was my choice. Slowly I’ve been tasting and exploring adding new things here and there. I’ve moved from sweet, to more complex in my wine drinking and today Berry Weiss my drink of choice on national beer day.
Leinenkugel also has Summer Shandy and a Lemon Berry, but the Berry Weiss is my favorite. The berry flavor isn’t the artifical syrup taste you get in the iced teas, but more of a real berry flavor. It has a nice foam on top when it’s poured out. It still has a beer taste, but definitely a fruity beer. If you are a beer lover, this may not be your thing, but if you are a wine drinker looking for a fruity beer, this one is pretty good – especially for a summer drink. Only a few more weeks of sitting on the deck sipping something cool before the time change and we’re in the dark at dinnertime, so enjoy!
