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.

Large white head. Floral doughy nose. Honey hazey color. Complex taste comes in cheesey then caramel sprinkled here and there. There is some effervescence that tickles your tongue.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle: Nice hazy copper color, light creamy white head, light lacing. Nose of bubblegum and bright yeasty citrus. The flavor has a nice body, mild sweetness and a nice citrusy note. The finish is tangy, beautiful witbier.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Absolutely cracking for a Wit. Dark yellow, almost browny orange. Aroma does contain spice - coriander, curacao, bit of pepper, also some alcohol and uncharacteristic hop. Richer mouthfeel than most of the style, and considerably stronger flavour. Not overly carbonated. Finishes with a little hop kick. Splendid.

Bottled, sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Cloudy dark golden. Rich choriander nose. Smooth palate feel, with fruity notes plus choriander. Pretty average Witbier.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Found this one randomly at Main St Gourmet in Oxford. First time Ive seen it anywhere, but that closet had it. Nice hazy orange with a nice white head. Real soft yeasty malt and coriander aroma. Flavor is a crisp grassy one. Its got a good blend of orange peel and sugary sweetness. This is a bit strong of a wit, but a damn tastey one.

Very particular beer; elevating has an alcoholic tenor much that unfortunately it covers excessive fruit notes. Good. Birra particolarissima; ha un tenore alcolico molto elevato che purtroppo copre eccessivamente le note fruttate. Buona.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2007 In the world of wheat ales, my preference is a hefeweizen... but I’ll be jiggered if this doesn’t hit the spot. Cloudy amber color with a lofty, thick & creamy white head, this is one of the spiciest wits that I’ve ever stuck my snout in! Bran flakes with lemon, pepper, cloves, and coriander... a real nostril hair tickler. Medium-bodied with a spritzy carbonation, it’s a tonsil tickler, too. The flavor is a light caramel, a hit of yeast, and a heap of the spices noted above. The finish is dry and slightly heated with the higher alcohol content. Very satisfying.
