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.

On tap at a random pavement cafe in Calais. Pale cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Light wheat chaff and lemon taste with a chalky mouthfeel and a mildly sour, dry finish. Thin and not a lot to it, but drinkable enough.

janubio (409) - SPAIN - AUG 4, 2014
330 ml. bottle. HYazy pale colour, with a big head that lingers on for a while and leaves a good lace. Smell of citrus and flowers, maybe some coriander, all very faint. Correct palate, refreshing, carbonation good enough and not too much. Taste of citrus, coriander, melon, some spices. Not near at all of my favourites blanche beers. Bland, but very refreshing.

Bottle 33 cl.
Fruity, light wheat, some spices. Easily accessible, refreshing in the heat and drinkable by the bottle.

Really light yellow white color with carbonizing head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is fresh, citric with some fermentation and alcohol hints. The taste is in line with this, quite fresh an really good for summertime. (Would have rated better if I liked Blanche beer).

Dimmig, citron gul med ett lätt färgat skum. Doft: Örter, kryddor, belgo, malt, citrus. Sitter med vitlöksbröd bredvid mig... Smak: Örter, belgo, jäst, malt, gräs.

Bamsen78 (3141) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
Draught @ L’Imaige de Nostre Dame, Brussels. Pours cloudy light amber with small white head. clear aroma of malt, citrus and yeast, with notes of fruit. Sweetish, malty and fruity flavour, with grainy and estery touches and citric notes. Lingering grainy and citric aftertaste. A nice one but more of a Belgian Ale than a Witbier.

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 17, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 25cl. Blanche fade sans intérêt. Comment dire... C'est juste meilleur que l'Edelweiss. Mais bon, est-ce un signe de qualité ?
