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.

heavy (2739) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 24, 2016
A 0.33 l bottle that poured a hazy yellow body with medium to small head. Aroma of elderflower, yeast, lemon, light sugar, a bit fake like a radler. Flavor was lightly sweet, wheat, banana, candies, sugar and yeast. Medium body with long, but a bit cloying sugary candy finish. Not that bad as it may sound, but far from anything special. Whole fake feeling bothered me the most.

Bière blonde avec gros col de mousse à très grosses bulles à tenue moyenne. Arôme très floral, très frais, agréable. Une bonne surprise pour cette bière industrielle, blanche qui plus est.
