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.

mansquito (3569) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Brought back from Canadia by my petit frere: Pours a hazy yellow, with a pretty nice white head. Aroma of lemon and spices. Taste has some hop bitterness in there. Lots of lemon. Plenty of spices. Very pleasant mouthfeel, almost creamy in there. Floral notes in there as well. Quite a good witbier methinks.

Strangebrewer (902) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2010
bottle. Poured hazy straw coloured with a white head. Citrus wheat aroma. Light mouthfeel, kinda flat. Notes of corriander and some yeast. A blander Belgian Wheat. Some alchol in the finish.

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2010
341ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with minimal white head that leaves almost no lace. Nose of fresh citrus fruit and spice. Much the same on the palate with the citrus being a little more subdued and I find myself wanting more of a crisp zing than I get.

DeanF (1729) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 12, 2010
Has a faint hops aroma, modest head, and an okay yellow-white body. Flavour is a nice lemon and wit blend. Mouthfeel is a bit weak. It’s a middle-of-the-pack blanche beer.

manuchampions (1238) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a hazy straw colour with decent white head. Amazing perfumy aroma of slightly tart wheat, some clove, coriander and pepper. Flavours are very clean, tangy wheat, clove banana and very subtle bubblegum. Smooth and well balanced

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy straw-yellow appearance. Lively aromas of cardamom, lemon peel, cinnamon, nutmeg and steel jump out of the glass. Spicy, refreshing palate. Slight lemony flavour is overshadowed by cardboard/wood/bark. Bitter wood finish thins out a little too quickly. Good but not great.

Le liquide dévoile une robe blanche passablement laiteuse. Le nez est complexe et intrigant avec des effluves de vanille, d’épices comme la coriandre, de blé comme le bon pain belge, d’aromates et de fruits comme les agrumes. Le goût est fidèle aux arômes avec un côté sucré et très légèrement aigrelet, agrémenté d’un mélange unique d’herbes et d’épices. En bouche, beaucoup de fraîcheur avec une texture veloutée et une effervescence qui me semble parfaite. La finale est goûteuse et singulière avec des notes de blé et de levure qui s’accrochent derrière la langue.

Pretty good beer. Less hazy than a lot of wheat beers, and not much going on in terms of appearance, but delicious flavour with orange and spices. Strongly recommend.

Keg. Strong tangy orange flavour, overpowering all other flavours for me. "Sour orange peel beer".

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2010
355ml bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon, banana, clove. Dry in style, with initial dough, followed by lemony citrus, floral notes, and bitter hops in the finish. Decent stuff, though I wish it had a little more body.
