Georgetown, WA – 1/12/10 – So you tried some Belgian beers last week. And maybe you thought, wow, those were great beers. But I can’t drink that EVERY day…so for round two, we present: The Daily Drinker. Those Belgian beers you can drink every day. Ones that are lighter, less potent, but still retain that certain, “Belgianness” that make them unique. We’ll try a few styles, and include those beers you can find everywhere in Belgium, even the airport! And lest you think we’re taking the easy road, be prepared, the Trappist’s are coming…
Bavik Premium Pilsner: A light flavored beer, smooth and malty. Clean finish, with a light malt aftertaste.
Leffe Blond: Uses Vieux Temps yeast which gives the clove-like flavour.
“Leffe Blond is a pale abbey beer, with a full, sunny, golden colour. It has a smooth and full bodied taste and a rich creamy head. Like all the Leffe beers, it is a ‘connoisseur’ beer that is easy to drink.”
: Unfiltered Belgian White, flavored with coriander and orange peel, creating a sweet & sour taste.
Wittekerke Rose: A blend of regular Wittekerke, the best Belgian wheat beer, known for its fruity aroma and taste, together with 10% of the purest Raspberry fruit, and a dash of the Petrus Aged Pale ale, the original mother beer that is aged in oak for up to 3 years. This combination is made in heaven, beer-heaven at the Bavik brewery in Belgium.
Petrus Aged Pale: A sour beer, Petrus Aged Pale is an undiluted old beer, only to be exported to the US.
We will be tasting these tomorrow, Wednesday, January 13, from 5pm-7pm. There is a slight possibility we will be missing the Leffe, but I’ve got my finger’s crossed more will show up!
Only $4 for all of them! And we’re going GREEN!
(No, not green beer, silly!). Bring your own tasting glass and save a dollar!!
Thanks, Erika & Crew
