Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc - Euriska

Being sick sucks. Especially when you have got some exciting tastings and plans with friends lined up. Unfortunately for me, there wasn't a way around it. I had been sick for almost a week before the day we were supposed to go for the Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc tasting and I didn't want to take chances with my already runny nose by cracking open a cold one. But, since I consider myself to be a beer person I had to give in. And I lived to tell the tale.

Euriska, which is a greek themed restaurant located bang on the mundwa main road, was kind enough to host this beer tasting event. Euriska is also one of the very few places that sell Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc and is a great place to hang out and chill.

Coming back to the beer, Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc is the French take on wheat beer. Since I was kind of unwell, I let the chilled beer sit for a while before I could try it. I do agree that beer tastes the best when its chilled, but since that would not agree with my aggravated cold situation I was happy enough to taste the beer, cold or not.

The first word that came to my mind as soon as I had my first sip was "fruity". The beer has a mild taste of coriander and lemon as well. The fruitiness came across as a bit artificial but it could just be because I had the beer while it was at room temperature. On the other hand, I'll give full points to Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc for presentation. The blue bottles, which it comes in, are unique and pretty to look at.




Of course, no tasting is complete without food. Euriska has some amazing choices of bgrub and we were not disappointed. We were presented with Achari Marinated Chicken Skewers, Chatpata Corn Aranchini and the Smoky Chicken Pizza.

The Achari Marinated Chicken Skewers were skewered pieces of barbequed chicken with some crispy veggies. It had a tangy taste to it because of the achaari marinate and were a good addition to a drinking session.

The pizza was just the way we like it. It had the most important toppings that you could ask for which is loads of cheese and chicken. Of course, it made us proud and tasted phenomenal.

But The Chatpata Corn Aranchini clearly seemed to be the winner. These deep fried cheese and corn balls were served with a side of salsa and made sure we kept coming back for more.

Of course, the beer really helped too. The beer found takers with people who don't normally drink beer.
The presence of good friends and great conversation did help the matters a lot. Though it was a sweltering Saturday afternoon Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc kept us cool and going for the day.

  2. This place is so special! Speaking of special, this is how our evening went. I met my buddies in the downstairs part of Chicago venues, which is more than just an average kind of bar with a lot of woodwork.
