Blanche De Brooklyn, a traditional Belgian-style white beer, or biere blanche, is named after its striking pale color. Blanche de Brooklyn, formerly a seasonal product, is now available year-round. White beers are made with a traditional dose of coriander seed and Curacao orange peel added during the boil for extra snappy flavor. Brewmaster Garrett Oliver also adds his own secret selection of spices of Blanche de Brooklyn.

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Decent witbier. It’s very bright and fresh, although nothing about its character is particularly exciting.

This was a tough one for me. The aroma was very poeppery and spicy, even for this style. Maybe a lemon/citrus thing in the far background. The appearance was very pale yeallow, white head, typical for the style. The flavor is again very peppery, spicy, coriander, wheat, and a slight lemon flavor. The finish is again dominated by the pepper and accompanying spices, making for an uncomfortable feeling, especially on a hot day like yesterday. The mouthfeel is between thin and medium. Decently crafted, except the pepper dominated the beverage and made it less than enjoyable for me.
