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.

Hana arvioitu. Kaatuu lasiin samean keltaisena, vaahdon ollessa isohko ja höttöisen kermainen. Pitsiä jää reunalle runsaasti juodessa. Hajussa on sitrusta, mausteista yrttiä, marjaisuutta, marjapensaisuutta ja taustalla hieman belgihiivaa. Mieto maku on appelsiininkuorinen, yrttinen, mausteinen, korianterinen ja marjapensainen. Suutuntuma on mieto ja raikas. Kokonaisuutena mieto ja helposti juotava wit, todellinen kesäjuoma. Hieman lisää tuntumaa olisi kaivannut.

Lots of green banana, spices, coriander, fresh. Hazy yellow, thin and short head. Light body and feel. Fruity fresh with bit pepper and coriander. Easy to drink, fruity fresh. Liked this one. Good white.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle at the hotel restaurant with my dinner of duck confit in Paris. Sounds more exotic than it really was. Pours a medium to light gold, nice head. Aroma is wheat and an almost lime note. Flavor is a close match - a good bit of coriander, and instead of the typical orange peel notes, something that comes off more like lime or bergamot. Refreshing, and surprisingly enjoyable. Liked this one.

Blonde beer as expected, lemon slice seems to improve the drink over time. Not outstanding but pleasant enough. Gentle character. Soothing

Marstonlad (332) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2012
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Pours cloudy yellow with a tiny white head that disappears quickly - a bit weird, usually the head has been much bigger when I have had this beer. Aroma is very fruity; also some citrus and spiciness are in the mix. Taste is crisp and both yeasty and malty; mouthfeel is really soft. Citrus fruitiness combines well with light hayish maltiness. Medium bodied and smooth - very satisfying palate. Very drinkable, soft and tasty witbier, especially during summer. A bit stronger than most wits.

stefannilssons (1309) - SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2012
Jag hade ganska höga förväntningar här eftersom jag dagen innan druckit en annan Grimbergen-öl som jag var väldigt imponerad av. Men den här levererade inte alls. Kroppen var något tam och smaken hade kraftiga insklag av både jäst och citrus men helt utan finess.

CanCrusher (511) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with white head. Intensive aroma of tropical fruits - lemon, grapefruit, orange, banana and some spices. Moderate bitter taste and aftertaste, very refreshing and drinkable. 6% of alc. is not noticable.
