The Beer Fox says,“Herb-dressed salmon, flavored with a masterful glaze of citrus and Canadian Belgian-style witbier!”
Recommended Brew: La Blanche de Chambly, Unibroue, Inc., Chambly, Quebec Canada
Style: Witbier – Natural Champagne color, shaded with White – Complex Belgian style white beer that lights up with hints of black pepper, coriander and cloves and a clean citrus-breeze of lemon, orange and lime. Active effervescence dances on the tongue, but becomes tempered and gentle as it slides down the throat. Highly seductive!
