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.

The pour is a slightly cloudy golden body with a thin off white head. The nose has a nice wheat malt and a big spiced yeast. A light grassy hop and a prominent lemon zest note. The taste is wheaty with a nice refreshing citrus and wheat taste. Some nice witbier spice with coriander a standout. Yeast aftertaste with a light tart citrus and spice. The body in medium to full. Overall, a nice witbier.

Davros (2323) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2011
Pours pale amber with a small head. Nose shows wheat, citrus peel, hefty coriander, and mint leaves. Flavours are pretty similar, more doughy wheat, citrus and coriander. Perfectly balanced, no one character really sticks out. Incredibly drinkable. Could use more carbonation. Shows that a beer doesn’t have to be extremely bitter or malty or alcoholic to stand out.

341ml brown bottle. I poured out half the beer into my glass and to my surprise this beer poured out very clear golden. Upon inspection of the bottle the yeast was compacted at the bottom of the bottle. A quick shake up loosened the yeast and the beer poured out cloudy as intended. Small creamy white cap with light lacing. Typical witbier aromas, lemon stands out a lot. The taste is of wheat, good coriander notes, soft orange notes, a little grassy hoppiness. Yeasty aftertaste with some lingering hop and spice. Fuller in body than other wits I’ve had, creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Well done. DDC are proving to me that they can also excel in lighter styled beers.

Maris (1153) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2011
From a 341ml bottle on 10/1/0/2011. Pours a cloudy, almost murky yellow colour with a small head. The aroma is primarily spicy and yeasty with the typical banana notes. Flavour wise, there’s oodles of lemon, some orange and banana, and an intense spiciness, which has both sour and peppery elements. An excellent, complex and challenging wit.

mcberko (9349) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
341mL bottle, pours a cloudy yellow with a tiny white head. Aroma of citrus, banana, clove and wheat. Flavour is quite citrusy, wheaty and florally, with coriander and dandelion notes. Light body, with a heavy floral and citrus finish. Quite nice for the style.

darrennelson12 (455) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
Draft at brewhouse; color was hazy golden with aroma of citrus and spice. I am not usually a Belgium wit fan though I found this quite good. Less coriander and orange peel than some of the Belgium beers (Triple Karmliet). Overall, not a bad beer at all

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
My Review: hazy yelllow with a white head. Excellent lacing. aroma of citrus, yeast and coriander. flavour is moderately bitter and somewhat sweet. moderate carbonation. minimal to no sediment. Finishes with a taste of indistinguishable spices. Not as Good as Hoegaarden... Perhaps it was the spices? Was good but it costs about $1 per bottle more in Ontario but simply is not as enjoyable. I’d recommend trying this one if you like Hoegaarden but would not add it to my regular rotation

Refrigerated bottle compliments of pushkinwow, poured into a weizen glass.. Pours hazy golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Little lacing, medium/thin body, and coriander aroma. Taste is acidic zesty citrus, some bready wheat, and a hint of coriander.

Tricker (332) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
Bière blanche de 5.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un goût d’agrumes, d’orange plus précisément. Elle possède une acidité en finale. Moyen col au versement, elle possède un odorat de fruits/agrumes. Un peu d’épice ! La description parle de coriandre, je goûte plutôt le thym.
