WILK Friday BeerBuzz–10 Aug 2012–Ladies Night w/Blanche de Bruxelles

WILKFridayBerbuzz15It’s not often that I feature a sessionable beach beer on the Friday BeerBuzz.  It’s less often that I feature that sort of beer three weeks in a row….but what perhaps happens least often is that I am involved in a microphone beer-radio-show takeover by a team of semi-hostile thirsty lady craft beer emissaries….so much to my surprise, guess what happened today?

From the launch of the hostile takeover of todays Friday BeerBuzz show to the blaring of Kool & The Gang’s famous hit “Ladies Night” I knew Webster & I were in trouble.  I should have known if two guys tried to answer the beer question, “What beer do women like?” the outcome would not be good.  Mrs. BeerBuzz often tells me there is no difference in the craft beer world for men & women and today she and her pal Kellie came on with Nancy to prove that point.
Today the ladies chose the classic Brasserie Lefebvre beer called Blanche de Bruxelles.  Mrs. BeerBuzz will recall sampling this rare beer at Monk’s Café in Philadelphia many moons ago and wishing it was more available…well now it is.  On draft and in bottles Blanche de Bruxelles is widely available in Northeastern PA and a great beer for summer.

Blanche de Bruxelles uses a 40% Wheat malt and unfiltered which accounts for it’s cloudiness…and the tastes of coriander and dried orange peel are prominent.  This beer is a traditional Belgian-style Wit or White and it doesn’t stray from that recipe very much.

This beer was originally named Mannekin Pis to commemorate the 1619 statue of the same name in Brussels.  After several US States banned the beer in the 1990’s, it was ultimately renamed Blanche de Bruxelles.  Regardless of your gender, check this one out for yourself…and despite what Webster and I may say, we had a lot of fun with today’s Ninja-Ladies-Night show takeover and we look forward to more Ninja-Craft-Beer-Ladies shows in the future.  So I leave you with one last thing to ponder ...to orange or not to orange? That is the question.

Thank you to Mrs. BeerBuzz, Kellie

, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
