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.

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours copper-amber, single finger white head. Aroma of banana, vanilla, toffee, caramel. Taste is much the same just with lemon and orange to add, a sharp, bitter, dry finish, overall very sweet, but easily drinkable.

Zlotta (2154) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2015
0.33 l bottle at Gollem Amstelstraat, bottled in august 2014. Hazy, golden amber with a medium large, creamy, tan head. Sweetish, fruity-spicy aroma of banana, vanilla, honey, vanilla and lemon. Sweetish, fruity-spicy taste of citrus, vanilla, banana and honey, followed by a short, slightly bitter and yeasty finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 18, 2015
[9/18/15] Bottle at Bier Circus in Brussels. Cloudy orange. Spicy aroma. Sweetish flavor, spicy, with yeast and a bit of cardboard. Medium-bodied. Disappointing.

guzgorog (705) - FRANCE - OCT 13, 2015
Robe qui ne ressemble pas du tout à une blanche : blondée dorée voir orangée, fine mousse blanche. Nez de levures, agrumes (orange), malts. Bouche étrange : malts et blé, levure (banane), peu d’amertume, légèrement sèche, légèrement acre. Texture légèrement rapeuse, qui accroche, bizarre aussi. Une blanche qui n’est pas vraiment une blanche, interessante mais pas vraiment mon style ...

Gurthnar (4986) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle from Drinkshop. Hazy orange colour. Moderate retention. Aroma assertively yeasty, light spices. Taste is full bodied, moderate yeast presence, fruity, flowery, perfumey. Solid honeyish malty base.

Hanoi (833) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle. Nose is very wheat. Banana, straw, a little fruity. Taste is banana, very sweet candy sugar, strawberry, cream, almost vanilla, wheat. Mouthfeel is oddly watery. Strange cloying wit.

altonbrownd (5629) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2015
4/1/2009 1:36:17 PM Bottle from Bierkoning. Murky orange body with milky head. Nose of chocolate and fruits. Quite a punch for a witbier with serious chocolate notes. Also citrus and pineapple in the mix. Refreshing and creamy. Gets a bit yeasty and spicier towards the end. Nice, as always, from this brewer.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2015
Hazy amber, no head. Sour apples, old cured cheese, straw. Quitecsour and dry. Average to low carbonation, medium body, watery to oily. Very unlike a wit, peculiar.

Donkerblond, ongefilterd bier. Ruikt naar koriander, zeepig. Smaak heerlijk zacht, licht zoetig, nasmaak licht moutig.
