Southampton Double White Ale
I fired up the grill tonight with the Mrs. and Cousin Rogg. The ribs are Koreans style and so are the kebobs. Marinated with Korean red chili paste, cracked black peppers, light soy, sugar, marin and some hondashi. And on a breezy July summer night, I paired the carnivore feast (By the way, the Mrs. prepared a great serving of watercress salad with mixed greens.) with no other than the Southampton Double White Ale. It was so awesome that I doubled the bottles and Rogg claimed it's the best beer he ever consumed. I had this particular brew at last year's Beer on the Pier. The event was horrible but Southampton left an incredible remark with this tasty Belgian style ale. Here's the my tasting note...
Publick House Beer
Appearance: A nice pale yellow brew producing only a decent thin 1/8 inch thick head of rapidly dissipating bubbles and left the glass with a film of froth.
Smell: Ultimately fresh and accompanied with the aroma of spicy coriander and Curacao orange.
Taste: Taste is exactly the way Witbier should taste like. It has an aftertaste of Saison. It is really a great beer for the summer. Simply superb.
Mouthfeel: Easy drinking with a medium-light body. Quite refreshing and great to drink it along or with friends.
Drinkability: Are you kidding me??? I am totally speechless with this outstanding brew from Southampton. This is one true gem that puts NY in the map for beer.
