Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc

The Blanc (or White) was launched last week at View Bar, Rooftop G Hotel, KL. Quite a party!

Nice fridge

At the mo, we have the 1664 lager in Malaysia, launched last year. Now there’s this ale too, the Blanc (330ml, abv 5%), which is a wheatbeer.

Party on

It comes in an attractive blue bottle. The beer pours a murky yellow, and i got aromas of frangipani. A lil like the Starker aromatic.

The View also launched it’s i-Bar, an interactive, touch-screen bar top. Pretty neat

Taste is very light, not as fruity as it smells, with a short finish, with no bitterness at all. I think i had 10.

This French beer is distributed by Carlsberg Malaysia.

For now the ale is available at The Library (Puchong, Mid Valley, The Curve, Avenue K), La Bodega Pavilion, Ecoba, Bakita, and The Hill. It will be introduced nationwide from next month on.

On tap too (apologies, camera phone for now!)

Bartenders joining d fun

I reckon it will also appeal to those who dislike lager, or want something light, probably easy to pair with any meal without overpowering it in any way.

Sunday high

Thirsty Sunday II (I’ll call it Gettin Thirstier) was a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Round 2

It was the sequel to last year’s event, organized by bakita & Beerbeer. This time, there was no beer-tastings. But there were beers at reasonable prices. I pounded shitloads of Erdinger Dunkel, one of my favourite ales, which went for ten bucks per 300ml cup.

Afternoon drunks

There was a bbq, tho food could have been better. I guess they didnt expect a bigger crowd this time.

It was basically a chilled-out Sunday, with food, friends and beers. Other drinks on tap included Franziskaner and Erdinger white.

Semi-outdoor setup. I like

The crowd had a good time, so there’re plans to do this event more often. I say go for it!
