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.

zenkis (614) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUL 26, 2013
Pours misty yellow with orange tones, interesting visual performance - like not clear but at the same time a bit clear also. Average top, sustains O.K. and lasing is medium, huge spots. Aroma - interesting, starts with sweet honey like, then becomes more flowery, more to spicy, but some specific spices which I can’t describe. But overall I would say on nose it coms hops flowery, spicy and sugary sweet. Taste - dominant medium plus sweet with light touch of bitter. Medium bodied, quite thick mouthfeel, soft carbonated, light floury, bitter finish, mild herbal hoppy bitter aftertaste. O.A. - from cheap ones this surprises me with something new and not bad flavor at all. Like that flowery-spicy bouquet.
