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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 28, 2012
341mL thanks to JulienHuxley. Glowing, full haze straw to near green. Medium, fluffy,white head. Excellent lace. Nose is quite excellent for style: fresh pineapple, vanilla, blood orange, pina colata, fresh peaches. Impressive. Taste is simpler- bitter citrus peel, dough, cracker, grass. Palate is buttercream frosting, crystal sugar, thick dough, grassy German hops. Great stuff. Yum yum yum.

very ordinary wit;i could just as well walk into any grocery store in antwerp -blindfolded-and pick out a wit that i like as much. spices slightly overpower the taste buds and the lemony zest slightly overpowers the aroma. i would pass on this one next time...even for free!

hawthorne00 (3420) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle, 5.5% ABV. Cloudy orange with a modest white head. Bright and cheerful aroma of oranges, lemon, vanilla, white pepper, coriander. Refreshing before you even taste it. Light bodied, but enough bread that it’s not watery. Sweet and tangy mixed citrus with some spices. Good.

Minderbinder (3232) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
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.

tom10101 (5054) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
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 (591) - 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 (3138) - 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 (1877) - 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)
