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.

AlainG (1740) - 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)

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 (5132) - 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.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 21, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a cloudy lemon sunshine yellow with moderate white head. Aroma is mild with notes of coriander and yeast. Taste is banana, yeast, coriander and a mild bitterness. Palate is reasonable light and dry. Overall, a good example of the style, better balanced than most.

reebtogi (5185) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a big white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is coriander and orange zest with some flowery hops and yeast. Taste is light fruity and malt sweetness with a spicy citrus hop bitterness and a little yeast in the finish. Light to medium body and active carbonation pleases the palate. A very nice Belgian witbier which is quite tasty and recommended.

glennmastrange (2526) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Light to moderate straw for the malt, moderate perfume and lemon peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of white wine, coriander and fresh orange. Head is small, fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy yet sparkling with tiny bubbles, pale yellow. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, a little slick with a lively carbonation and a lightly drying finish. Very citrus-y and sprite-ly. This Witbier is one that I could easily go back to.

Arome d’épices surtout la coriande. Belle robe blonde pâle. Goût d’agrumes et de coriande. Bonne blanche!
