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. Cloudy pale yellow with a small dense, good lacing, white head. Aroma is coriander, citrus, yeast, dusty cardboard. Quite sweet, almost no bitterness. Short spicy finish. Refreshing, but nothing special.

visionthing (2578) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2013
25cl bottle from Stockmann, Tallinn. Pours hazy pale golden with a white head. Lightly wheaty aroma with coriander, fruits and hints of citrus and soap. Medium sweet and fruity with lots of coriander and a light bitterness in the finish. Quite drinkable and refreshing, but a bit to much coriander for my taste.

Andy_ (630) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Hazy yellow beer with thin but long-lasting and lace-making head. Aroma has typical Belgian yeastiness and citrus fruits. The taste adds a lot of sugary sweetness and some pineapple and spicyness as well. Pretty lively carbonation and long finish.

On keg at 442 Bar Milano - hazy light straw colour with a thin white head. Citrus nose with notes of wheat, coriander, and clove. Body is somewhat thin with lively carbonation. Flavour is citrusy wheat with spicy coriander notes. Finishes mildly bitter. Very refreshing, great summer beer, ideal for a night outside in the heat.

mile (2854) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty – some wheat sweetish aroma, light caramel and some fruitiness, light citrus. Body is light to medium, malty – some wheat and sweetish flavor, light caramel and some fruitiness with light citrus. Finish is average, malty – some wheat and sweetish, light fruitiness, light citrus and faint spiciness (coriander). Sweetish wit from Carlsberg - nothing special. Multinational brewing company made wit for the masses - and those with sweet tooth.

GoufCustom (748) - HONG KONG - JUN 2, 2013


250ml bottle bought at Marketplace by Jason’s in iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Cloudy, pale straw golden with traces of dusty yeast sediments; Very thin head and white foam which last for 40 seconds; Minimal lacing and notable carbonation; Fragrant aroma of malt, light perfume, floral, honey, orange, light coriander, light cloves and spices; Mid to light sweet and tart taste of light malt, with orange, coriander, yeast, cloves, spices and light citrus; Mid to light body, thin and crisp palate; Good sweetness and tartness balance, plus yeasty and light malt mouth feel. Orange and cloves elements are well presented; Hoppiness is in citrusy smell and taste, only faint note of bitterness; Slightly dry aftertaste, very easy crispy to mouth.

Comments: This one has really nice sweet aroma, with taste and mouthfeel are pretty good if somewhat less colourful then Mont-Blanc La Blanche or Hitachino Nest White Ale. Still a very good one for thirst quenching. A bigger bottle then 250ml will be better! Recommended.
