COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blanche du Paradis is a Belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander seeds and Curaçao orange peels, the spices traditionnally found in this classic style. Unfiltered and containing almost as much raw wheat as malted barley, it presents a veil of yeast and proteins giving this style its "Blanche" name. Round and light at the same time, it exhales fresh baked bread aromas, and reveals spices and citrus flavours, accompanied by subtle notes of acidity coming from the wheat.

rosenbergh (7628) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2011
341 ml bottle. Montréal, QC.
Slightly hazy orange golden colour with small to average sized white head. Fresh citrus, coriander, yeast and wheat in aroma. Good Witbier could be expected. Wheat, yeast, citrus, coriander, spices and some bitterness (not necessarily from hops) in flavour. Very tasty, refreshing and enjoyable Witbier.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 06/24/2011. Colour: Very light yellow with white hints. Low head. Nose: Soap notes, zesty yeast, leafy greens, parsley. Taste: Medium-light sweet, light sour, medium-light bitter. Delicate spice wraps itself around a handful of flowers. Soft walnut and vanilla settle in through the finish - and its quite tasty.

pushkinwow (2164) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2011
341ml bottle. Pale yellow with a quickly receding white head. Lemon zest, yeast, bit of coriander, odd sweetness (citrus?). Low carbonation, mildly sweet, thin bodied, bit of alcohol, some spice (maybe a bit of clove and coriander) and wheat. Ok but not a favourite from DDC.

Fantastic wit from an always exciting brewer. Strong coriander aroma, a bit oily in the mouth.

BuckeyeBoy (2934) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 19, 2011
12oz Bottle I brought back from Canada. Pours out a cloudy straw topped with a white head. Aroma was lemon zest, spice, and light wheat. Taste was more of the lemon/citrus, sweet wheat, and some spice.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Pale yellow colour, cloudy with a very thick, white head. The aroma is great. Lots of lemony coriander (but not at all soapy) over a bright spicy yeast character. Clove along with a lemon/lime sort of citrus character. There is a nice balance of wheat spice along with some yeast contribution as well. Zippy with a nice yeasty perfuminess. It’s a lovely witbier.

douglas88 (6590) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A sweet lemon and peppery nose. The flavor is a warm sweet spicy brew; lemons and pepper, smooth but some heat. Nice.

341ml bottle
5.5% ABV (as written on the bottle)
I tried this beer on October 27, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy lemonade colour with a thin white bubbly head. The aroma was wheat, grain, citrus, yeast and some weak spices. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was wheat and spices with a acidic yeast finish.

Bottle LCBO (Dieu de Ciel promotion) Pours clear straw yellow with medium white head. Aroma of grains and citrus, quite pleasant. Fairly light bodied. Dry, spices more prominent than in aroma. Distinctive but I think I prefer a straight wit.
