I can see the pairing of foie with the White. But would balsamic sauce covered the fresh aroma of the White???

Sounds like from his description that it did not. He did say it was a light sauce.

Life is short; eat the cheese course first.

I went to a beer/food pairing tasting last night.  The beers featured were all from R&B Brewing, a local micro here in Vancouver.  Alison the brewer is just about the nicest person I have ever met, and the most attractive brewer to boot!  All the food was delicious and paired very well.

A good time was had by all.  Big thanks to nwyles for putting it on, and to Alison and Barry from R&B.

Yes, the sauce was somewhere between light and almost non-existant, and combined with the Allagash White it was etheral. Coincidentally, I mentioned it to one of my beer-iest friends yesterday, and his take on the Allagash White was that it was more a Belgian style than a hefeweizen. And I note from Allagash's web site that they pride themselves on their Belgian-style beers. Still, the beer had enough of a banana-clove thing going on that I'm sticking with the hefeweizen comparison.

      It seems that the legendary traditional appearance and accoutrements of witches may have actually risen because they were conjuring up beer rather than malign entities from beyond.

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.
       

       
       
       
      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
       
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
       
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
