Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Interesting 'summer' brew that was in a sample pack from the jumbo liquor store. Since summer is still upon us in south Florida while others are at or on the fringe of winter's doorstep, we'll give it a go.

First off, this is not a beer in the usual tradition. That is to say in its taste.  Well, what I'm trying to say here is you have to try this for yourself.  It rolled onto the tongue tartly, leaving hints of peach sweetness at the edge of your sensory periphery.  I likened it to Asti Spumante at one point.  See if you don't think so too.

From reading up more about the Berliner Weisse style, I found that it is not produced much these days.  Give Dogfish Head kudos for experimenting with the style and bringing it to our palates.

I really must get around to trying one of their beer beers after sampling some of their more off-beat concoctions.
