White Ales

Heres my favorite white ale.

South Hampton Double White from Long Island.

Great beer, very clean feeling, taste great.

If you like UFO, Blue Moon, etc, try this one.

My favorite white ale also. I always try to stop by the brew pub where it originated every time I fish Montauk or Shinnecock Inlet. Great way to cap off a day of fishing .

Oh, BTW, the Double White has a little kick to it. I believe it's about 8% ABV (they use to be stronger). 3 or 4 of them can put you down quick, as you don't really taste the alcohol.

Never been big on wheat beers. Funny part is while I don't like say 7 lb pale to 3.5 lb wheat , I almost always add one pound of wheat when mashing say 18 to 20 lb pale malt.

For whites , I love the smell of crushed coriander seeds. Not so easy to find. Whole Foods carries them , you do the brushing yourself.

Bitter and sweet orange peels are a pain in the butt. They grow mold on the skins when stored and few places have them so when you mail order you sometimes get old ones , etc.

The beer has a clean taste but I doubt I have ever had more than two at any given time. Blue Moon was very popular at one time.

I remember being in a bar in Luxembourg one late night with this incredibly hot bartender who didn't speak a word of English teaching me how to say Hoegarden properly. For some reason I just couldn't seem to get it right

The best domestic white I remember is Celis, a Texas brewery run by a Belgian ex-pat. Haven't seen it in years though.

Generally speaking, I think most US micro wheat beers are terrible.

Recently I've seen a German wheat at the local shops by the name of Kuputzinger or something like that. Green label and comes in a flip top or even better a mini keg for only about 20 bucks. Really excellent and the mini keg is a steal, I've seen them at Allen's, Moriartys and I think Stone Bridge.

How many beers did you have up to that point ? Seriously, have you tried the Double White? Excellent beer.

I'd be willing to wager I was not sober

But I do remember she was pretty nice even adjusting for beer goggs. I'll have to try the Double White as no, I have not tried it.
