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.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 ~ Bottle courtesy of Eric at Big Z Beverage in Huntington, NY. Pours a hazy yellow color with a big white foamy head. A dominant wheat aroma is followed by hints of orange, lemon, and pepper. Taste matches its smell. This Belgian White was refreshing and a pleasure to drink. ~

Blanche du Paradis: 341ml bottle, bought for 2,19$ (BDF, of course), but I saw it at 2,99$ per bottle at some places in the Montreal region: beware. This white beer is very fruity (orange) and quite cerealish, with rather discreet notes of coriander, some sourness, a delicate hopping and a pretty dry lasting finish. Enjoyable and very easily drinkable, a good White Beer indeed, but I like this one a lot less than DDC occasionnal tap Cascade Blanche, which is far more intense in its hop bitterness.

one of the more pleasing beers I have tried. the grains of paridise at a certain zest to a pleasant style. every time I visit Quebec I try to stock up on this beer so that I can slowly enjoy such a fantastic beer.

Bottle. Hazy yellow with a thick foamy white head. Very good retention and good lacing. Aroma is coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise, dough and lemon. Flavor is spices (coriander, grains of paradise), fruits (orange peel, lemon) dough and yeast. Medium body and fizzy carbonation.
