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.

Bottle. Cloudy dark golden with white head. Sweet fruits with apricot and peach, lemon, herbs, fresh bread. Sweet at first with a very light sourness and light bitter finish. Nice velvety feel. Pleasantly surprised!

Robe dorée, très belle mousse. Nez élégant sur des notes épicées (coriandre), levure sur un fond de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque ample, un bulle crémeuse, une rétro de houblon et une longue finale amère et équilibrée. De nouveau une très belle blanche, tout en puissance, à l’inverse de la précédente.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

DerWeg (1533) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
Pretty good stuff with soft spice and citrus and rounded sweet fruit (baked apple, pear.) I kept the bottle in the cellar so it’s clear and dark amber with minimal head. Has developed some interesting wax candy flavors.

andrew_drinks (169) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle from Humulus et Fermentum, Heisdorf, Lux. Pours bright amber with a big white head - as one would expect from the description. Medium high carb, Lots of wit character and fruit to the aroma, herbs and cream soda. Medium mouthfeel, lots of fizz. Herbal coriander flavour, with some orange, lemon, and classic wit yeast character. Very drinkable for all that too.

Erg lekker witbier. Heeft een volle romige schuimkraag. Ruikt licht naar sinasappels en bitter. Volle smaak. Jammer dat het zo moeilijk te krijgen is !
