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.

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.

A cloudy dark golden color with an eggshell colored head. Strong yeasty scents with corriander,citrus and honeydew. Very tasty but a touch too much on the yeasty flavors.

0.33 l bottle at Gollem Amstelstraat, bottled in august 2014. Hazy, golden amber with a medium large, creamy, tan head. Sweetish, fruity-spicy aroma of banana, vanilla, honey, vanilla and lemon. Sweetish, fruity-spicy taste of citrus, vanilla, banana and honey, followed by a short, slightly bitter and yeasty finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 25, 2009
Bottle at Take One, Maastricht. Orangey hazy with a thick off-white head. Nose is lemony, yeasty. Some hints of coriander and black pepper. Mouth is quite sweet and cloying at points, but with a robust swallow of citrusy sweetness, which lasts well. Finishes smooth. Good.

vadie (1183) - 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.
