They still use old (ex-DDR?) symbols on the traffic lights here in Leipzig. I tried to get pictures, but had no luck with my point-and-shoot camera, but there had a nice legend posted on some of posts:
After getting turned around a couple of times, we arrived at Sinfonie just after they opened.
I decided to take one for the team and order a Köstritzer, since it is a (relatively) local beer here. It did taste better than the last one I had in the US -- a bit more malt and roastiness in the finish but still that inky flavor I think comes from color beer. The Döllnitzer Gose was clearer here -- still unfiltered but almost bright. The ones at Ohne Bedenken were almost milky. Don't know if this means the kegs had settled more or what. In any case it was good.
They had another beer on the menu, Wernersgrünner Pils. So we had a small one for the table. It was very clean and soft with a nice hop bite (to our hop-deprived senses).
It was time for my Gose and we ordered a bottle of Berliner Weisse to go with it. I haven't tasted the Kindl in a while and it was not as sour and nasty (in a good way) that I remember from before. But then again, I've come to enjoy Oude Lambic so my tastes haven't been static.
A shot of the bar. This looks like a great place and I would highly recommend it to anybody visiting Leipzig.
