NEW - Barley Friska

Barley Briska Biere Blanche...$18.99 / 750ml
Notes from Lorenzo Dabove: "What's a "biere blanche"? It's a traditional Flemish specialty brewed using malt, unmalted wheat spiced with coriander and orange peels Cloudy light yellow "Friska" is an original interpretaion of the style by young Sardinian brewer Nicola Perra who wished to personalize his beer (unmalted barley and malted wheat are used as well) giving it more body than usual.

The result is a wisely balanced beer, fresh in the nose with spicy and citrus fruit notes, rich of sensual scent of tropical fruit but at the same time full and important in the palate with appropriate acidulated and citric notes making it a highly refreshing and thirst-quenching beer.

Perfect as aperitif, it can match very well with a gingered "risotto", it can harmoniously marry with boiled fish and mayonnaise, it can be intrigant with a seafood salad, elegant with battered vegetables and nally gorgeous with fresh soft cheeses spiced with "fines herbes"
