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.

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.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
A light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with lots of lemon - too much for me. The flavor is sweet citrusy - very one-dimensional, and it is way too carbonated, the mouthfeel is like drinking a sodapop.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy, pale golden with a small, white head - a very classical witbier appearance. Typical aroma of coriander and citrus. Rather high carbonation. Light body with notes of wheat and citrus and a somewhat perfumy edge. A fresh and quenching Wit. 210506

Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow colour. Small white head. Weak, spicy wit aroma. Quite citric flavour, hint of spices in the aftertaste. Thin, but refreshing.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 16, 2007
750 ml. bottle. Aroma of wheat, light lemon citrus, coriander, and banana? Hazy lemon gold color with a white head that was substantial, and left light lacing. Thinnish body, and a moderate, very creamy, carbonation. The flavor is mild, non-acidic citrus, with wheat, light stone fruit, and overall quite a light anise tone. The finish is that very light anise, stone fruit and banana. It really is quite mild, refreshing, and unlike anything else I’ve ever tried. Unique. It is standard fare, but such fare as is rarely encountered. One heck of a nice ale.

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
