Vichtenaar

Flemish Beer

It’s a traditional Flemish red ale with an almost impossible name to pronounce: vich-ten-AAR? VICH-ten aar? vich-TEN-aar? (From a brewery with a more impossible name to pronounce- Brouwerij Verhaeghe). Chilled, this refreshing sipperĀ smacks you in the face with notes of sour fruit, vanilla, and port. No artificial flavors added (this ain’t DeKuyper’s sour apple puckers schnapps), Vichtenaar is matured in oak casks for a minimum of 8 months. Perfect for shaking up your beer routine and duping all your wine friends who, “don’t drink beer.”

Vichtenaar is sold by the bottle, $2.99 at Whole Foods locations around Seattle
