DAY 11
Paulaner Hefe-Weizen : Paulaner Brauerei, Germany : 5.5% ABV
Didn’t get around to drinking this one over the weekend.  Yet another solid German hefe-weizen.  It’s getting to the point that I almost want to taste a bad one.

DAY EIGHT
Schneider Weisse : G. Schneider & Son, Germany : 5.4% ABV
This is actually my least favorite of the german hefeweizens I’ve been trying lately, but it’s by no means bad.

DAY SEVEN
Ayinger Bräuweisse : Braueri Aying, Germany : 5.1% ABV
Full disclosure: I just got in from snowblowing our alley for the second time, so a warm High Life Lite would taste good right now.
But wow, I have seriously overlooked German hefeweizens.  I’ll be dedicating most of this month to remedying that.

DAY FIVE
Kelpie Seaweed Ale : Williams Brothers Brewing, Scotland : 4.4% ABV
Color me a bit surprised.  I was expecting some bizarre or at least pronounced flavors here, but what I got was a pretty inoffensive light stout with a tiny hint of saltiness, some vague chocolate maltiness and some bubbly carbonation.  Not great, but not bad.  Just kind of there.
Text on the bottle: 

Prior to the 1850s many Scottish coastal alehouses brewed their own ales using local malted barley grown on fields fertilised with seaweed.  We have recreated the unique flavor of this traditional ale with the inclusion of fresh seaweed, Bladder Rack, which is taken fresh from the water of the Argyll coast and mashed it in with teh malted and roasted barley

Day Four
Rogue Juniper Pale Ale : Rogue Brewery, Oregon : 5.3% ABV
This actually serves two purposes-
Gives me my Oregon fix
Gives me something to shoot for when I try a juniper IPA next round of brewing.
This stuff is gold.

Day Three
Rince Cochon : Brouwerij Roman, Belgium : Blonde ale, 8.5% ABV
Extremely drinkable for a strong ale.  Maybe dangerously so.

DAY TWO
Avec Les Bons Voeux : Brasserie Dupont, Belgium : Saison, 9.5% ABV
Holy hell, this beer.  My love for Belgian saisons knows no bounds, and this is going in the regular rotation along with Ommegang’s Hennepin, Saison Dupont (also from this brewery), and Brasserie St. Feuillian Saison.
