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.

EddyBeer1 (902) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2014
Dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen persistant. Malgré sa composition céréalière, ça ressemble à beaucoup de choses sauf à une Blanche, ce qui ne l’empêche pas d’être plus que plaisante, avec des notes épicées, une bonne petite amertume et une certaine rondeur en bouche!

JulienHuxley (3267) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold pour, med white head and lots of floaties. Muted aroma of orange peel, citrus, very light spiciness, and bready notes. Taste is sweet and citrusy, nice orange flavor, light spice, peppery, fruity. Palate is well carbed with medium body. More punch than a typical wit, but not overpowering. This beer delivers what is promised.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
33 cL bottle from the LCBO, served in a flute. Pours hazy golden with a tall, frothy off-white head that remains and laces well. On the nose, there are big notes of orange and citrus, along with grass, flowers, coriander and lightly toasted malts. The flavour is mildly sweet with malty notes, wheat and a touch of honey. The spice comes through in the middle and it becomes a bit drier towards the end, picking up hop notes and a bite from the ginger. The finish is long, malty and spicy with a decent grassy hop accent. On the palate it is medium in body with a milky texture and intense carbonation. Overall, a nice strong Belgian wheat ale with a distinct spiciness and nice hopping. 2013-06-19

Bendrixian (1132) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Fairly carbonated with a hazy and honey yellow colour. Yeasty and floral aromatic aroma with slightly pungent hoppy aroma. On the palate it is smooth with a lightly sweet note, lack acidity, and sports a ever so light peppery finish. Boozier than I expected but a good memorable brew considering the style.

Bottle - Orange, wheat and sweet yeast. Clear gold with a beige head. Wheat, coriander and a bit of booze. Rich mouthfeel but average flavour.
