Aquafinapure (16) - Acton Vale, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2012
Bière blanche d’inspiration Allemande mais qui s’approche plus d’une Belge. Blonde et trouble, peu pétillante. Léger col qui s’efface rapidement. Odeur d’épice, de citron et de clou de girofle. En bouche, le blé prend peu de place. Dominance du citron et de la banane. L’arrière-goût est pas ou presque pas présent. Moyenne en bouche, bière d’été!

GregClow (2882) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
(Originally written for the Fall 2011 issue of TAPS Magazine.) Given that they’re close stylistic cousins, a hybrid of a German-style Hefeweizen and a Belgian-style Witbier, as this beer is claimed to be, makes a lot of sense. But despite the “German Inspired” slogan on the label, BdM Blanche doesn’t offer any Hefe-like hallmarks – no banana, no clove, no bubblegum – and instead strikes the palate as a fairly average Wit. Medicinal lemon predominates, with soapy coriander and mild ginger supporting, and a finish that is both grainy and slightly astringent.

Cunningham (4439) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2012
Hazy yellow colour with a big white head. Citric, spicy and sweet wheat aroma. Maybee a bit too much lemon in the flavour. And a bit to sweet. Otherwish fresh and ncie.
[On tap at Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri in Oslo, Norway]

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
So, only in their description do they say this is a hefeweizen, but written in big "Blanche" which is usually a witbier (but no mention of coriander, nor orange peel). Pours a cloudy blonde with a frothy white head that goes down averagely and leaves foam. Lemony wheat aromas, but mild. Slight sourness at the beginning of the taste, but falls flat. Maybe a bit of yeast. Not much here. Kind of different because of the confusion with the name, but a bland weird hefeweizen.

sseb69 (1487) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2012
Bouteille 341 ml. 4.5%. Couleur jaune pâle, mousse blanche. Arôme de blé et agrumes. En bouche, levure mais pas trop, zeste et céréale. Correct.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle. Scary pile of sediment in a loudly yellow. Thin lasting whie head. Weird Absorbine Jr and bana scent. Thin watery and Absorbine Jr taste.

krinkle (16) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2011
Lots of citrus to the nose, as well as spices (pepper, clove). Medium carbonation, medium body. Wheat adds a bit of robustness to this thin beer, but the aroma makes you forget that with spices and lime. Good, but it doesn’t feel complete and balanced as a real wit.

Pas un fan de blanche , mais cette blanche d’inspiration allemande fait le travail dans une longue journée d’été !

VincentL (274) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
Odeur floral, un peu citron, faible mais plaisante Apparence : mousse généreuse mais evanescente, robe jaune brumeuse typique du style. Co2 : moyen Goût un peu acide, on sent des touches d’agrumes, définitivement comme la Hooegaarden mais un peu moins prononcé. Je discerne mal la coriandre qui est supposé s’y trouvé. Rafraichissant mais pas aussi satisfaisant que les meilleures blanches. Arrière goût est le point faible. Un peu quelconque. Le goût est mât, reste longtemps sans être particulièrement remarquable. Supposément une blanche d’inspiration allemande mais ça ressemble plus à une blanche belge de deuxième ordre.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle (341ml) courtesy of GregClow. Pours a hazy yellow/pale gold with a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of grain, chili pepper (oddly enough), pepper, wheat, citrus fruit and floral and herbal notes -- it’s somewhat odd and not great. Flavour of citrus first followed by wheat, herbs & spices. A bit watery. Average bodied. Odd aroma, slightly dull flavour and not on style -- just O.K. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
