COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously brewed at DuBocq (Nov 2013)

Blanche Des Moines is brewed on 60% pilsener malt and 40% unmalted wheat. In spite of a close affinity to the Flemish witbiers this is somewhat different. It is brewed with a higher proportion of unmalted wheat which adds even more of the special, wheaty notes that are so characteristic for the style. Naturally the beer has been added coriander and dried orange peel. Furthermore an extract of licorice root has been added. Primary fermentation is with a classical Witbier yeast and the beer is bottle fermented.

Pours bright yellow into a tumbler. Bright white micro head quickly recedes to skim surface. Coriander and citrus peel aromas. Crisp and slightly salty with a dry lemon yeast finish.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 75cl bottle. Pale gold with an impressive white head. Fresh aroma of citrus, yeast and coriander. Taste is similar and quite sweet. Mediocre, end of.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Københavnske Øldage 07. Light straw wit notes of coriander, spice and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is sweetish and spicy with notes of coriander, wheat, fruit and citrus. It’s quite harmonic, but not outstanding. 2086

marcus (6022) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 6, 2007
This witbier poured with a thick white head, eliciting a spicy aroma. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and the flavor is fruity and spicy with a malty tinge.

Bottle: Pale straw, cloudy, lively carbonation, moderate to large fluffy white head, sticky lacing.   Spicy nose, seems tart, orange peel and coriander.   Well balanced spices and sweetness on the tongue.   Spritzy, full bodied, long lasting flavor.   Finishes a bit bready, especially if you get the bottom of the bottle.   Solid example of the style.   Clean.   This one worked for me.   Thanks for sharing mattbob.

Maverick34 (2061) - New York, USA - MAR 20, 2007
.75L bottle. Pours a hazy gold w/some lace. Lots and lots of bubbles, wow. Aroma is coriander & citrussy, as is the taste. Not to shabby.

yespr (29691) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2007
75 cL bottle. Pours pale yellow with huge creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and coriander. Heavily carbonated. Taste is wheat, yeast and most of all coriander. Has a distinct citric note that gives the beer an overall freshness together with the coriander aroma and carbonation. Average to good, but not the best wit beer.

deprogram (114) - Renton, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Light, thin, pale. Not a whole lot of head, but a nice change of pace from the sweet thing I was just drinking. Kind of boring to look at, very sweet, delicate aroma. Definitely a white beer, and not bad at that.

Cloudy pale yellow colour with an off white head. Light sweet and citric aroma with fruity and yeasty notes. Bland fruity sweet flavor with a light dry and citric finish.

Bottle. Pale yellow beer with a white head. Low wheat, citrus, spice aroma. Orange citrus flavor with wheat, spice, and yeast. LIngering citrus. Wheat a bit much (but I don’t like a big wheat bite - then again, it IS a wheat beer...).
