Jan De Lichte is an outstanding wheat beer which blends a high alcohol percentage with atypical hop bitterness. The cocktail was developed, based on the Bapas ABC beerpairing method: matching and contrasting ingredients were obtained from the beerpairing wheel. Cointreau, lemon and grapefruit elegantly complement the aromatic character of the beer. The spicy Angostura and the flavor of the flowers counter the Jan De Lichte wheat beer, while the creamy texture of the egg white brings everything together. Bartender Mike carefully balanced the ingredients to obtain this surprisingly refreshing cocktail "B-White. Cheers!
