In Wisconsin there are 72 people who care enough about the ladies to offer them a tasty fruit beer. I’m talking about the folks from Chippewa Falls who have created Leinie’s Berry Weiss, a smooth offering made with honey and blackberry juice (they claim this is a blend of blackberries, elderberries and loganberries, but the actual label says, “juice”). It’s now available year-round, should you need to drink away any winter blues with the taste of summer.

This dark pour provides a fresh taste, but it’s almost too sweet owing to the fact that it is made with juice and not real fruit. If you drink one, you’ll have enjoyed a refreshing beverage. If you drink more than one, the sweetness becomes cloying and you’ll start to burp. A lot. And that is decidedly unladylike.
