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.

Full disclosure, I’m drinking this on a Friday after a very hard week at work, so rubbing alcohol would rate pretty high right now. With that said, this is a really, really good beer, with a spicy, fruity, caramel/toffee flavor and a nice, dry finish. This is halfway between a white beer and a standard Belgian strong ale, and that’s a good thing.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 14, 2008
Tasted 14/03/2008. 330ml bottle from Rumble’s Wellington. Goddamn awful condition. The big airy disappearing bubbles looked sorry from the start. Cloudy chunky hazy gold. Off white head vanishes. Fruity sweet sweaty smelling wine and paper on the nose. Alcohol has nothing to hide behind and is very prominent. Tart fruity sweet winy beer with sodden paper in the mouth. Fizzy. Awful - tastes worse than the awful commercial description reads. I’m scoring generously because I’m sure it must be better fresh... surely?

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2003
This Belgian white ale pours a pale, cloudy orange color with a medium sized, creamy white head that lingers. It has a wonderful aroma of orange peel, spices, wheat, and yeast that really tempts the nose and makes the mouth water. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is peppery and spicy up front, with lots of wheat and orange flavors. The finish is long and sweet with lots more orange and coriander. A great white ale, one of the better I have had.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2006
(07.13.06) One pint 9.4 oz green bottle from Liquorama. 6.8% ABV. Best by 05.08.08. Spicy clove aroma. Poured cloudy dark orange with large white head. No discernable carbonation. Medium-bodied ale that starts dry with light malt/spicy (clove) fruity flavors. Some tartness noted. Finished dry and clean with slight bitterness. Excellent wheat beer with delicate flavor.

MPA (778) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle (cellphone rating). Hazy golden with a light white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, banana and straw. Flavour is sweet again with the oddly placed hints of banana along with grain and some spicyness. Good dry bitter finish.

Blanche buonina, niente di trascendentale, bevuta all’O Connor pub di Genova.

EddyBeer1 (760) - 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!

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2005
Yellow-golden color with light orange shine and with airy light colored froth. Mild and refreshing aorma’s of citrus, oranges honey and wheat. Smooth taste with a refined refreshing accent of citrus fruit, coriander, and other asian spices. Lively beer with a smooth and clear afthertaste.
