Advantages: Easy to drink and my local Tesco stock it.
Disadvantages: Boyfriend keeps drinking my bottles!
I first discovered this drink on a night out when it had just come on to the market. Someone I know decided to order a pint, had one sip and gave it to me as he didn't like it. Well I loved it. It was refreshing, fruity and, best of all, different.
It's one drink I always make sure I have a few bottle of in the fridge. But now my boyfriend has tried it and fallen in love with it too, so I think that I'll have to start hiding it!
Anyway Kronenbourg Blanc is a refreshing, fruity, white beer imported from France.
This 5% ABV premium draught and bottled white beer has been created by those master brewers at Brasseries Kronenbourg, inspired by the 13th century Cevoise brewing style. Also in the Kronenbourg family you will find Kronenbourg 1664, Premier Kru and there own 'widget in a can' with Dynamo Systeme.
It is served cloudy, which is the continental style. It has underlying tones of corriander and cloves which is balanced with subtle citrus and soft fruit flavours. Now I know that when reading corriander and cloves it doesn't sound nice, but put that thought right out of your mind. It has a gentle, fruity taste which is not overpowering, but welcomingly different. It is best served chilled.
Although it is described as a white beer, is is essentially a wheat beer, as it is in the ingrediants. The name describes the appearance of the beer. It is a pale yellow colour and cloudy and therefore gives the appearance that it is white.
To me it is a summer drink, which I believe in France they serve with a slice of lemon, and it certainly does conjure up images of warm summer evening sat in the garden eating BBQ food. Saying that though, I love the drink that much I have been known to drink it during deepest, dark winter.
It's very easy to drink and sits well we both males and females. Men don't let the talk of a fruity beer put you off, as you would certainly be missing out on what for me has been a great discovery.
Summary: If you fancy a change you won't go wrong
