White (Wit) Beer Tasting at Full Throttle Bottles!

Georgetown, WA – 6/29/10 – We had to make a last minute re-schedule this week. We took a poll at the cider tasting, and everyone voted for White or Wit beers. So we’ll try a variety of beers to show you how Belgians are different from Canadians from US.These are all the perfect, classic summer wit beer. And because it’s after Memorial Day, I think we’re OK…just don’t wear these, drink them and drink them year round, they are good ANYTIME of year! We may add one or subtract one..we’ll see how it goes!

Victory Whirlwind Witbier – Pennsylvania, USA: A swirling dynamo of flavor, with a steady calm of satisfaction at its heart, that’s Whirlwind Witbier. Offering a tamed tempest of flavors both spicy and sublime, this softly fermented ale greets the nose and tingles the tongue. Imported Belgian yeast charges Whirlwind with an energy all its own. It is a refreshing interpretation of the classic, Belgian ‘white beer’ style.
Avery White Rascal – Colorado, USA: A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or “white” ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, that’s yeast on the bottom) and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly fruity thirst quencher.
Pike Dry Wit – Washington, USA: Turbid (cloudy) spun-gold brew with excellent head retention. Dry and crisp with a honey-like aroma, fruity taste and clean aftertaste. A superb summer beer garnished with a slice of fruit, like an orange or peach.

Unibroue Blanche De Chambly – Quebec, Canada: A nice summer session beer, this has light spices, lemon and wheat emerging from this hazy golden brew. Very crisp and refreshing lemon and grapefruit and somewhat surprisingly sweet mouthful. Pleasant mild tart finish.

Hoegaarden Wit Bier – Belgium: An unfiltered Belgian White, this is flavored with coriander and orange peel, creating a sweet & sour taste. Great for drinking on a hot afternoon.

Wittekerke Wit Bier – Belgium: Pouring a cloudy light gold with a foamy white head, the aroma is refreshing with lemons, flowers, corriander and a hint of banana. The taste has ripe peaches with a hint orange rinds.

We will be tasting these tomorrow, Wednesday, June 30, from 5pm-7pm. Only $4 for all of them! Our usual “be green” offer applies: Bring your own tasting glass and save a dollar!!
