COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blanche des Honnelles (1991) was originally very localised, and has since expanded beyond the boundries of the greater and lesser Honnelle rivers, from which it takes it's name. The Blanche des Honnelles leaves the beaten path somewhat. It has an amber colour which is after all the traditional appearance of the Blanches. It is also stronger (6%) than the Blanches that we know. Its taste is surprising and is not comparable to the brews with the same name that are now on the market. If the bouquet is subdued its first flavour is a stark dry sharpness against a pepper background. There is no acidity in this Blanche that is made with three cereals (barley, wheat, oats). It has a stimulating taste, leaving a subdued but refreshing final impression. Lots of character and curious.

Piana początkowo obfita i sycząca, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa złoto pomarańczowa, mętna. W aromacie odrobina pomarańczy, ziół i starego chmielu. W smaku na szczęście dużo lepiej - kandyzowaną i morelową słodycz dopełnia niewielka cytrusowa kwaskowatość. Na finiszu ziołowa nuta i niewielka chmielowa goryczka. W afterteasie papaja i guma balonowa. Średnie nagazowanie, półpełne w odbiorze.
Całkiem fajny, mało pszeniczny, dość mocny a zarazem nieźle pijalny, wit. Minusem jest niewątpliwie nieprzyjemny zapach zwietrzałego chmielu.

fantti (879) - FINLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella kuohkealla vaahdolla. Tuoksu on hyvin mausteinen ja viljainen, taustalla on sitruksisuutta ja hiivaisuutta. Maku on vhvan sitruksinen ja mausteinen, alla on viljaa ja hiven happamuutta. Suutuntuma on tyylille yllättävänkin kuiva, raikas ja happaman puoleinen. Laadukas, raikas ja hyvin tunnistettava sekä yllättävän kuiva witbier, joka erottuu edukseen.

Bottle. Hazy yellow with a medium sized with head with good retention and lace. Mild nose with flowers, dough, light perfume, candied lemon. Flavour has mould, wood, earth, chalk, herbs. Medium body, some sweetness, low bitterness, fine soft carbonation, mild acidity. Fairly sweet and earthy, strange wit.

McDef85 (34) - ITALY - JAN 11, 2016
Blanche più corposa del solito. Aroma erbaceo, speziato, retrogusto lievemente amaro (liquirizia). Meno acquosa delle altre blanche, complesse sensazioni boccali.

Een enorm lekker en fruitige geur. En een mooie schruimkraag. De smaak is lekker fris met een toets van sinaas. Witbier is normaal niet men favoriet, maar dit is een goeike
