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.

Robe dorée très, très légèrement trouble. Mousse blanche. Pas d’amertume; touche de pain. Rien de très distinctif, mais parfaite pour se désaltérer par une chaude journée d’été.

kidmartinek (4570) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Copper with a lot of bubbles and a complete haze. Small fizzy white head self-generates. Aroma is fruit and caramel. Light palate and body. A lot of fizz. More caramel flavor than anything else.

larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2016
Medium white head. Clear yellow body with visible lumps of something, probably protein. Fruity spicy aroma with herbal earthy notes. Dryish earthy funky taste with mealy floral fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish fruity mineraly funky aftertaste with herbal spicy linoleum notes. Interesting and highly unusual. Not that great, though. (0.75l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Lele (382) - Padova, ITALY - APR 30, 2016
Ottima interpretazione di una Blanche. Dal colore e dal gusto più carico del normale. Sentori speziati al naso e in bocca. Al palato si percepisce anche una leggerissima acidità, tipica delle blanche, ma anche una dolcezza un po’ più accentuata rispetto alla normalità dello stile, ma che la rende unica. Consigliata!

Voici une jolie bière blanche, une vraie bière de soif, une bière de farniente. Le palais est sec avec des touches d’herbes et d’orange. Brassée par l’Abbaye des Rocs, elle garde une vraie personnalité et du caractère malgré son faible degré d’alcool.

alteregoo (797) - POLAND - APR 28, 2016
Piana początkowo obfita i sycząca, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa złoto pomarańczowa, mętna. W aromacie odrobina pomarańczy, ziół i starego chmielu. W smaku na szczęście dużo lepiej - kandyzowaną i morelową słodycz dopełnia niewielka cytrusowa kwaskowatość. Na finiszu ziołowa nuta i niewielka chmielowa goryczka. W afterteasie papaja i guma balonowa. Średnie nagazowanie, półpełne w odbiorze.
Całkiem fajny, mało pszeniczny, dość mocny a zarazem nieźle pijalny, wit. Minusem jest niewątpliwie nieprzyjemny zapach zwietrzałego chmielu.

Bouteille 33 cl - mousse blanche onctueuse, couleur or clair, goût floral, légérement épicé, finale légére et séche. Une bonne bière

0,33l bottle at home. BB 12/08/2016. dark yellow cloudy color, small white head. smells fruity, light grass, candy, banana, light honey, some belgian yeast, tobacco. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of spices, peppery, sweetness, candy, grassy, lemon grass, parfume, flowery. finishes light sweet with notes of parfume and spices. decent but also rather boring. overall ok, nice peppery notes, but rather on the sweet side, just OK.
