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.

Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, - SEP 28, 2010
A beautiful wheat beer...citrus off the top with a bit of citrus too. Medium body with some light bubblegum in the finish...smooth with tiny bubbles of light carbonation.

VincentDamon (442) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Bière de couleur jaune paille avec une belle mousse. Nez puissant de levures belges, de bananes, et également d’épices. En bouche, les notes de pain sont agréables, il y a une certaine sécheresse due aux épices et une amertume qui la rendent sans doute moins rafraichissante peut-être que certaines blanches. Bon petit produit!

migwell (271) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2016
A pretty mild wheat beer. Bottle into tulip, some head, a little of which lasts. Aroma of yeast and spice. Light body and mouthfeel. Taste is fairly ordinary for the style, yeast, wheat, bread, mild banana and a bit of citrus, spice and a dash of hops. Nothing wrong with this, just nothing special about it. Understated.

JStax (4538) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2016
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a moderately hazed gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has mild floral aspects, some lavender, and some orange peel. The taste leans more toward the bitter side. Light and airy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Bulk_Carrier (3351) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JAN 29, 2016
This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a mild hazy burnt orange color with a thin white little head that quickly dissipated. Lacing just slid right on into the beer. The smell had some sweet lemon, subtle sweet wheat, mild coriander, sweet lemongrass. The flavor takes in the previously mentioned flavor and beefs up the wheat portion to more of a mildly sweet breadiness to it. Lingering sweet citrus rounds out into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a wonderful sessionable feel. Spices don’t detract on the harshness. Carbonation felt good as well. Overall, as a witbier it works, definitely, but why am I drinking it this time of the year, yeah well, I’ll drink again preferably in the Summer.

rondphoto (3558) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 22, 2016
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Dated 6 0, which I suspect means June 2010. Cloudy medium amber color, thin ivory rim head, no lace. Taste is mild malt with body that moves through a mildly fizzed swallow to a finish with just a hint of hops. The end sees a return of sweet. Probably way too old, but I can drink it. However, it could be a lot better.
