Default Got a Beer Brewing date (!), need a belgian recipe!

This upcoming weekend I'm meeting a girl and the plan is to brew a beer... we've both done it before. I'm usually an IPA guy but she's not a hophead, so I'm going to branch out and need a good recipe for Belgian ale, white ale, or something similar.

Seems kinda long for a first date but will certainly share how it goes. Your help is appreciated! :beer:

People seem to like my Belgian Blonde. It's in my recipe pull down.

Good luck with your date. I hope I speak for all of HBT... we're rooting for you!

(is there nothing that beer can't do?)

It can't clean a kitchen floor, ceiling or cupboards.

But if it gets all over them, it can provoke you to have to clean them.

Might as well get a ring too, you know, just in case she's a good brewer.

What if it doesn't work out? Who gets the fermentor?

Maybe get her to sign a pre-brew agreement granting you full discretion of custody arrangements for the fermenter in the event of a decision on either party's part not to pursue a second date?

"I really can't wait to brew with you, but I'm gonna have to ask you to sign this first. Just a formality, really..."
