It’s Spring in Downingtown and that means it’s the time of year again when we get to make our favorite take on a Belgian White Beer: Whirlwind Witbier. Ahhhhh, you can almost smell the BBQ’s around the corner . . .
. . . here’s more on Whirlwind Witbier:
A swirling dynamo of flavor, with a steady calm of satisfaction at its heart, that’s Whirlwind Witbier. Offering a tamed tempest of flavors both spicy and sublime, this softly fermented ale greets the nose and tingles the tongue. Imported Belgian yeast charges Whirlwind with an energy all its own. It is a refreshing interpretation of the classic, Belgian ‘white beer’ style.
Be sure to ask your local Beer Distributor if they’re carrying Whirlwind!
