Shock Top’s Belgian White

Posted: February 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

Lately I have been posting about beer that a lot of people won’t be able to find near them. So I decided that tonight I would blog about one that you can find in just about every store in the United States .

The one that I’m going to talk about tonight a beer by Shock Top. It is probably one of there most famous beers, The Belgian White. Some of you may ask what does it mean to be a Belgian White. Well what that means is that this type of beer is usually brewed with un malted wheat and the malted barley. To add extra flavors these orange and other citrus peels may be added along with the coriander spice.

Shock Top’s Belgian White is brewed using the un malted wheat along with the malted barley and coriander. Instead of just orange peels, like a lot of Belgian Whites have, they have also used lemon and lime peels to give it an extra citrus flavor. When you pour this beer you will notice that it is a cloudy orangish color. It is cloudy because this beer is unfiltered. When drinking this beer you will notice the citrus tones because of the citrus peels. There is very little bitterness to this beer which makes it go down extremely smooth. Due to the citrus in the  beer, this beer is very refreshing. If you want to bring out the citrus tones more, you can garnish this beer with any type of citrus. This beer will pair very well with fish, such a glazed salmon and also goes well with other meats. On the day that I had this beer I chose to pair it with spicy orange chicken wings. They complimented each other  very well.
