COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloÔdal by cold). The cloudy appearance is created at low temperature but disappears when the beer gets warmer or when it is kept too long in the cold. Fine fruity with a scent of the used spice, coriander and bitter orange. Smooth beer, thirst-quenching but mild, slightly acidulous, powdery consistency on the tongue, not bitter

Pours a hazy pale yellow, with a one finger head that fades very quickly to a thin spotty cap, leaving behind a minimal amount of lace. Smell; very much on the mild side. Thereís a little orange peel, and coriander, with a light wheat presence. I donít smell any of the licorice that the label claims is in this. Taste; the flavor is actually even more thin than the aroma was, and Iím having a hard time picking out any favors other than the orange and coriander. If I concentrate hard enough, I can almost trick myself into tasting the licorice. Mouthfeel is light bodied, with only a little bit of carbonation.

Thick white head. Very pale, almost white. Wheaty aroma, with orange and lemon being the strongest smells. Very light and refreshing and fruity.

Appena si apre la bottiglia si sprigiona un aroma molto intenso, fruttato e speziato (agrumi, coriandolo, camomilla e frumento). Il gusto Ť leggermente acido, speziato, con evidenti note di camomilla e agrumi. Il retrogusto Ť speziato.

Happy Thankgiving! I enjoyed a bottle of Blanche de Namur with my Thanksgiving meal today. The initial pour was aa very pale straw color (almost white) that was slightly hazy. After intentionally disturbing the yeast at the bottle of the bottle later on, the appearance was more like that of cloudy pear or pineapple juice. This beer was generously carbonated and had a big foamy white head. The aroma was mostly orange zest and a hint of corriander. The flavor was also mostly light orange/lemon and wheat malt. It was slightly tart and had a balanced bitterness to it. There really wasnít any detectable corriander or liquorice in the flavor. It is light bodied and tickled the palate, but didnít really seem over carbonated - just right for the style. Overall I thought this beer was well balanced and complemented my turkey and meal nicely, but felt that the aroma and flavor werenít pronounced enough. I would have also liked to taste a bit more of the corriander spice and liquorice flavor. However, the zesty orange flavor and light sweetness were very nice without being overdone. 750 mL bottle (19/12/08), $5.99+tax from Riverís Bend.
