So I’m sure drinking is probably not at the top of your list of things to do post memorial day, but if you’re looking for a perfect brew for the looming warm summer days ahead then look no further than Shock Top’s Belgian White. Belgian White is a spiced Belgian-styled wheat ale brewed with real orange, lemon and lime peels giving this concoction a bright, clean and crisp flavor that’s just perfect for cooling down on a hot day by the grill. What really separates this beer from many other ales is that it is unfiltered resulting in a cloudy appearance in contrast to its golden color. If you haven’t heard of them yet, you will. This is one company that takes its time to create and develop their vision of what a refreshing ale should be. In 2006 the Belgian White took home the gold medal at the North American Beer Awards and nearly had a repeat performance when it took the bronze in 2007. Currently this antidote for the mid-day summer heat is available in almost all liquor retailers with regular new batch releases in both November and July. So if you’re ready to get back out there and beat the heat make Shock Top you’re new best friend.
