COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in Strasbourg for Alken-Maes, distribution unclear. Spiced.

Grimbergen Blanche is a true wheat beer in the most traditional sense. The pale yellow Blanche is cloudy, just as you would expect from a wheat beer. Notes of citrus and light carbonation add character to the creamy palate and make Blanche an excellent thirst quencher.

Bottle from Casino supermarket in France. Cloudy slightly toasty looking amber beer with a white foam head. Nose is sweet malt, wheat cereal malt, lemon citrous, creamy. Cereal grainy, and sweet. Taste is lemon, creamy wheat malt, lemon, touch of orange, little sugary sweetness. It’s a little too malt sweet for me.

Bottle 33cl Pours hazy pale Gould with a big white head. Aroma is spicy and citrusy with notes of paprica and clove. Taste is sweet and slightly citrusy and sour, all seems too much subtle, almost anonymous. Lemony aftertaste. light body and too low carbonation.

Refreshing on a hot day. Not as typical as hoegarden, a bit more on the yeast/sweet side, and with less citrus.

thellgren (406) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 4, 2015
0.33 l bottle from Alko. Looks like decent Belgian White Beer. This is, however, an Abbey Blance, so the taste has also some yeast and sweetness. There is also some citrus but not so much as in the other beer of the same style. Still, quite refreshing.

Draught in a bar on the slopes above Samoens. Pours clody yellow with a good white frothy head. The taste os lemon citrus, hay and spice. Pleasant and refreshing, especially at the end of a hard days skiing.
