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.

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

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.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Sampled at the 6/2005 ‘Nooga gathering. Poured a white onion peal with hazy orangish hints. Suspended particles in there. The aroma was very light but noted wheatish like grain and citrus. The flavor was very nice and refreshing. Light fruit (peach, pear, lemons) and wheat and yeast. The body was light and frothy…creamy. Very good.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUL 26, 2010
i am slowly becoming aware that there is a large difference between a blanche or belgian wheat ale, and whites or witbiers. this one was a clear amber color and smelled more like a belgian pale than anything. taste is flowery and dry and was lovely until the last few sips where you could feel the sediment on your tonuge that was pretty off-putting. a nice overall beer, but there should be two categories, one for belgian wheat ales, and one for whites, they really are two different types of beers.

vadie (1203) - 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.
