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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2003
Faint hazy honey blonde with medium size medium lasting white head. Attractive sweet malty fruit nectar and mild citric and sourdough aroma. Medium light body consistent with the style. Classic light citric sour, light yeast and mild bitter and nectar sweet flavours. Clean light dry grainy finish. Very easy drinking. Could easily become one of my favourite wits.

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
C’est une grande wit! L’arôme a plein du blé et du coriandre avec un peu de poivre et levure belge. En bouche c’est plein du corps (particulièrement pout le style). Il y a du blé, un peu du malt, et un peu d’épices. Bien équilibré avec d’houblon dans la finale, et un peu sec.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
33 cL bottle from the LCBO, served in a flute. Pours hazy golden with a tall, frothy off-white head that remains and laces well. On the nose, there are big notes of orange and citrus, along with grass, flowers, coriander and lightly toasted malts. The flavour is mildly sweet with malty notes, wheat and a touch of honey. The spice comes through in the middle and it becomes a bit drier towards the end, picking up hop notes and a bite from the ginger. The finish is long, malty and spicy with a decent grassy hop accent. On the palate it is medium in body with a milky texture and intense carbonation. Overall, a nice strong Belgian wheat ale with a distinct spiciness and nice hopping. 2013-06-19

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
This beer pours a cloudy medium-dark yellow with lively carbonation and a thick head. Aromas include: spicy lemon/citrus, chamomile and straw. The flavor is well-balanced, bright and engaging with an average finish. The palate is moderately viscous and luxurious.

VDuquerroux (1222) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle, 25cL. Home. A hazy brown orange beer with a large thin white head. Persistant white crown. Sediment of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is spicy, fruity, caramel, alcohol. Dry bitterness refreshing followed by medium spicy sweetness. Medium body and texture. Bittersweet refreshing finish. Overall, a very good white beer. Refreshing. I can almost hear the sound of the river from here.
