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.

Ibrew2or3 (7930) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Clear golden color with off white head. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast, spice and some wheat. Flavor is on the sweet side initially with wheat and honey. About midway some coriander and cinnamon enter. Near the finish a sour note arises before the flavor fades into the aftertaste where all flavors re-appear and converge and slowly fade away.

Hazy honey gold hue, with a rocky white head, with a yeasty, spicy, fruity of ripe apples and pears, with some zesty citrusy notes of grapefruit, lemon, and a subtle sweet orange peels note, with a pinch of coriander in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with yeasty zesty citrusy character, a smooth wheaty mouthfeeling, nice coriander and nutmeg spiciness accents, with a honeyish candied orange peels note, leading towards a sweet wheaty, fruity spicy finish.

Bottle. Hazzy golden orange color with bubbles and sediment with a nice white head. Spices and yeast aroma. Taste of spice, yeast, ginger and citrus. A very nice Witbeer. Bière de couleur trouble d’une couleur doré orange avec des bulles et des sédiments dans sa robe et un bon collet blanc. Odeur de levure et d’épices. Au goût, elle est épicé, avec un goût de levure, gingembre et d’agrumes. Elle est rafraichissante et très bien réussis.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - OCT 12, 2006
The 25 ounce bottle poured a hazy light apricot colored beverage with globs of viscous material in suspension. The head was medium sized, white and mostly diminishing but left decent lacing on the glass. The aroma was primarily of soured fruit with an earthy undertone and notes of pepper and other spices. The body was medium-full with lively carbonation and a crisp, dry texture. The flavor starts out a bit on the sour side but quite fruity and spicy. The finish lasts a fairly long time and has a dry character to it with an alcohol warmth.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle best before 2008. Light lemon aroma stonger spice and some sourness. Hazed dark golden body with good white head. Flavor was strongly spice and sour for the most part. Citrus lemon and banana flavors in background. Malty banaana aftertaste, decent but little to much sour bitterness for me to have another.

MiP (14738) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
