About the Beer
La Blanche is brewed using the finest glacier water from Mount Blanc and is the product of barley and wheat malts, hops, and spices that are dominated by coriander and Curaco orange peel for a bright and light flavor. Since this is a wheat beer, it is lighter than many and has a refreshing and crisp taste that is sure to excite your senses. The spices make for a very exciting and somewhat exotic blend that is at once spicy and balanced. The beer has been called flowery and light as well as delicate, lemony and impeccable to the finish.
The beer is unfiltered to protect the flavor and texture of the beer as well as the natural cloud to provide drinkers with the finest flavor and the purest flavor as well. This beer pairs well with raw vegetables, oysters, raw fish, and fresh cheeses and comes from the brewer in a wide range of sizes from your typical bottle to a 30L barrel. This wheat beer pairs well with a wide range of foods but does best with light flavors that need a delicate pairing.
La Blanche is ideal for those that want something that is light but still full of flavor and full bodied. Though it may seem like a light amber beer is not going to have a strong flavor, La Blanche certainly packs a punch. La Blanche has a 4.7% vol. alcohol content and is wonderful with just about anything you pair it with. You can find out more about this brew by visiting the brewer’s website.
