Fell out of the cute tree and hit every branch on the way down

by C. Fernsebner, concerning the matter of Tasty Things

Hanami_ale

For Adorablog readers of legal drinking age only: Esteemed New Hampshire microbrewery Smuttynose has just put out a refreshing, tart spring beer, Hanami Ale. It's brewed with cherry juice but, unlike a kriek lambic, it looks like an amber with a slight blush, and it's more malty than sweet.

The packaging features Pucca (the sweetly belligerent Korean anti-Hello Kitty) and, in lieu of the usual prose, describes the beverage with several haiku:

Delicate flowers
Like cherry blossom petals
A new beer is made

Pucca picnics with sushi and a maneki neko under a blooming cherry tree. (Garu, her taciturn ninja boyfriend with "silent jumping power," is nowhere to be seen.)
