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.

Bottle 341ml. Pours surprisingly clear blond for a witbier, with good white head. Some lacing [Second half of bottle was hazier, maybe i should have shake it]. Aroma is of coriander, spices, sligth citrus (orange peel), flowers?. Taste is of spices, sligth citrus, some bitterness. Overall: interesting spices, nice balance. A tad thin.

Bottle 341 ml. Clear yellow with a large creamy white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus and yeast. Taste of spices and citrus with an interesting malty presence for this kind of beer. Body is light but the beer is still tasty and not watery at all. Very good refreshing beer!

Niksko (568) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2012
341ml bottoe. Cloudy light golden pour. Very little bright white head that fades quickly. Nose is awesome. Mix of peach, orange, lemon and subtle herbaceousness. Flavours are lovely and quite delicate. The citrus is back, but it’s incredibly fragrant. There’s also a hint of peach on the finish, along with that super aromatic citrus. More bitter herbs on the finish, along with some balancing hops and a light yeast note. There’s also a wonderful acid kick on the finish, which is short but delightful. Carbonation is not over the top. Light bodied and very refreshing, with not much weight to it. Although it’s winter and I’m loving this beer, It would be absolutely perfect on a boiling summer’s day. I just couldn’t get over how fragrant those citrus notes were on the mid palate. Just wonderful. I loved this. Really great.

Damico (3108) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
What an absolutely fantastic beer for this style, which brings me the super high rating. This brewery rarely disappoints, and this beer shines for their attempt at the Belgian Witbier style. The ale pours hazy golden with a light orange hue and off white head. The aroma is divine - bringing fresh notes of the sweet orange peel, but not specifically citrus, more like sweet floral notes with a hint light herbal notes from the coriander. The flavor brings this same notes, but with the orange peels so soft and pleasant on the tongue and settling nicely on the palate. The body is just right, regardless of the fact that we lost a bit of carbonation possibly being about a year and a half old.

AlainG (1804) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Bière blonde d’apparence trouble, digne du style, alors que la mousse n’est pas au rendez-vous. Au nez, des odeurs d’épices; de coriandre, de blé et d’écorces d’oranges en émanent. Le goût est semblable aux senteurs avec de légères différences. La menthe poivrée et le zeste de lime font partie des variantes, ainsi que des pointes de cardamome. Bonne et belle bière de journée ensoleillée. (233-140512)

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2012
A - Pours a very hazy golden-yellow color with a finger of thick frothy white head. The head fades down at a fairly slow pace leaving behind some nice lace. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet wheat with some light spice, coriander, orange peel, and citrus. There is a touch of citrus hop and yeast character. T - Start off with some sweet wheat with some strong orange peel and some citrus notes with a bit of light yeast. Through the middle some light hop comes through with some more yeast flavors and citrus. The finish is a mix of citrus, orange peel, light grain, and some sweet wheat. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a lightly dry and very crisp finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced witbier with some good citrus notes that really round out the flavor nicely.

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, sediment-filled straw with a short-lasting white head. Smells of oranges. Taste is very subtle, coriander and a touch of orange. Acidity is obvious on the finish, along with a bit of citrus bitterness. Body is light to medium. Definitely not one of the best whites I’ve had, I feel this one is slightly overrated. For cheaper, I feel like I could get a better witbier, going for a Blanche de Chambly or even, maybe, a Rick’s White. Maybe my expectations were too high, though. That brewer really does make some unbelievable beers...

teorn88 (5581) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2012
34cl bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with almost no head. Aroma is wheat, grass, cardamom, coriander and fruits. Tons of peachy notes. Taste is similar: little bitterness, a tad of acidity coming from the wheat, and a decise but well balanced spiciness. Yellow fruits and peaches again. Light in body and carbonation. Tasty and refreshing. Amongst the best blanches to me.
