Summertime is a great time to sip some white wine at the end of the day. But there are times when a crisp savignon blanc or an unoaked chardonnay just won’t do – when you need a little carbonation to cut through the heat for a refreshing treat. Today was one of those days.
After an afternoon of errands and work around the house, I opened the fridge. Propel? Nope – too much like water and I’ve had enough already. Soda? Nah – just doesn’t sound refreshing enough. Wine? Well, if we had some cold white wine maybe. Ah but beer – we still have some left over from Ava’s birthday barbeque – perfect!
We had picked up a sampler pack of Sam Adams from our local Costco. I’ve had a few of them already (Sam Adam’s Light is decent, the Summer Ale is pretty darn good), but I had not yet tried the Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier. I love hefeweizens (unfiltered wheat beers), especially in the summer. So naturally I thought the Blackberry Witbier would be perfect. And to cool off on this hot summer day, it absolutely was – a good wheat beer with a hint of blackberry.
Thankfully this is mostly a female audience – otherwise I might have to turn in my “man card” for admitting to liking a fruit flavored beer…
