“Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” If you do, you might still be able to find a couple of bottles of this tasty little sucker. Nothing goes down smoother on a warm autumn evening that this offering from Lighthouse.
Snap open a bottle and you’ll get a whiff of apples, Mother Earth, cloves and nutmeg. Trickling it down your throat you’ll note that it’s slick and easy. Then it hits you. This Belgian White has just thrown you a 7.5% alcohol punch.
Belgian White is an Imperial Witbier that’s concocted with wheat, oats and malted barley. Galaxy and Citra hops lend subtle citrus flavors that are finished with a smattering of ground coriander seed.
And check out the flippin’ graphic on the bottle. It was created by the well-known fantasy artist Michelle Landry. She lives in the same town as the brewer, Victoria, Canada,
The glass is wrapped in a shiny gray paper with a pirate skull.
Returning to the lips, you’ll experience what best could be described as a hint of bubblegum. Then, creeping up behind that sweet tongue comes the coriander with a pleasant bite and velvet dryness.
What a smooth, satisfying beer. It will not only go well with most light-papered stogies but also alongside a tear of sourdough bread and a side of grapes, apples, cheese or a big ol’ fat, greasy burger with bacon.
In other words, there’s no going wrong with Lighthouse’s Belgian White.Shaken, Not Stirred: Belgian White from Lighthouse Brewing by David Sabot
