Friday Beer Blogging: Zon Edition

Visited Brewhouse again this past weekend. This time for my birthday. We sampled several of the brews on their Seasonals and New Arrivals list having pretty much exhausted the regular list over the years. One that all-knowing beer waitress Kate recommended was Boulevard Brewing Company's Zon Witbier.

Boulevard Brewing is out of Kansas City and they have a whole line of beers, including several seasonals. One of those seasonals is the Zon.
Boulevard's summer seasonal is our interpretation of a classic Belgian witbier. Zon (Flemish for "sun") combines the subtle flavors of coriander and and orange peel with other traditional ingredients to create a delightful, refreshing summertime brew.
And you know that there ain't no cure for the summertime brews!

I thought the Zon was quite good, perhaps the best of the night. It's no greatly outstanding from other wheat beers but pretty good coming from K.C. and not Europe.

Have a great weekend! And remember to soak up the Zon.

Kate IS great. She is so knowledgeable about the 100+ beers the BH serves. We love her. Anyone going into Brewhouse looking to sample the bestest beer better make sure they sit at one of Kate's tables. Oh, and tip her well.
