Ahi Tuna + Craft Beer

In SoCal, Ahi tuna reigns supreme. From poke to wraps to sushi, California residents swoon for this sea creature. One of my favorite examples of a successful Ahi dish is at Pacifica Del Mar, overlooking the gorgeous Pacific in Del Mar, California. Sitting out on the deck eating delicious food with sunshine and an ocean breeze is an experience I highly suggest. 

What will Dr. Bill pair with my amazing Pacifica lunch? Here's the details of the dish: Seared Ahi with Udon noodles, sweet peppers, carrots, pea shoots & ginger-scallion vinaigrette.

Bill's response: 

This dish is calling for an amazing Belgian Saison and I’m pairing it with Dupont Avec les Bon Voeux! At 9.5%, it can hold up to the spiciness yet the fruit esters from the Belgian yeast strain, coriander, and citrus (primarily lemon) will accommodate the Asian influence in the dish.
