Sour Cucumber Broth, Dill, Brokaw Avocado
The Belgian-style blonde ale is typically easy-drinking, with a low but pleasing hop bitterness. This is a light- to medium-bodied ale, with a low malt aroma that has a spiced and sometimes fruity-ester character. The overall impression is balance between light sweetness, spice and low to medium fruity ester flavors.
Pistachio Stuffed Chicken Breast
Glazed Chanterelle Mushrooms Bacon Fricassee, Cauliflower Purée, Pickled Ramps, Fava Bean, Poultry Jus
Originally British in origin, this style is now popular worldwide and the use of local or imported ingredients produces variances in character from region to region. American versions tend to be cleaner and hoppier (with the piney, citrusy Cascade variety appearing frequently).
Korean Chicken Wings
Soy Lime Lacquer, Thai Chile, Roasted Peanut
The Bohemian Pilsener has a slightly sweet and evident malt character and a toasted, biscuit-like, bready malt character. Hop bitterness is perceived as medium with a low to medium-low level of noble-type hop aroma and flavor. This style originated in 1842, with “pilsener” originally indicating an appellation in the Czech Republic.
