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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Immense lasting froth above an unclean, orange body. Citrusy, fruity aroma suprises me seeing that this is unspiced, because to me, it stinks of orange peel. Perfectly carbonated body, which elevates flavors. Orange peel spice, with juicy tangerine and tang flavors, citrus fruits, tart wheat and an authentic Belgian feel.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Nice large creamy head, sits on a murky orange body. Nice subtle dry orange peel aroma, some light spiciness as well. Good light and frothy mouthfeel. Very rich citrus taste complimented by some tangy maltiness. Slight sweetness and acidity balances this beer out quite well. Finish has some subdued minerals and earthiness that appear very late. Overall, a very balanced and well made wit that is saison-esqe, quite impressive.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Pours a pale yellow with a large snow white head and quite a few floaties. Produces nice lacing. Aroma is of yeast and spice. Yease giving a bananna and faint clove aroma. Fairly standard aroma. A fruity grape wine character. Active on the palte, tangy, with some malts but an overall feel of tangy fruityness. Nice dry finish. Nice beer, decent complexity. Nice ballance, great finish.

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.

Cloudy orange color with a thick head. Citrusy odor with a lot of spice. Lemon and orange flavor with some coriander and pepper. Good strong witbier.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Bottle. Bright-orange yellow. Floral, cirtic lemon/orange qualities in aroma and appearance. Hoppy and crisp, effrvescent, lasting mouthfeel. Nicely balanced.

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.
