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.

TET (1603) - FINLAND - MAY 8, 2013
A slightly cloudy, yellow beer with an almost medium and blond head. Aroma is fresh, lots of lemon, wheat, spices and coriander, some sweetness. Taste of strongly wheat, yeast, lemon, quite much of spices, coriander. Taste is richer than usually, also the aftertaste is quite long. Medium bodied, lots of carbonation, fresh to drink, as a witbier should be. Tastefull beer with richer flavours than normally, still refreshning and easy; lemon, wheat and spices.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - MAY 5, 2013
Cloudy yellow with medium sized white stable head. Lacing. Aroma.. first impression mint bubble gum, then comes wheat and some quite pushy spices, I guess coriander, butter. Quite synthetic thou not complete disaster. Mostly sweetish. Well.. its drinkable, but weird synthetic. I wont say - never again, cause theres something interesting about this.

sfuen03 (320) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a pale yellow hazy color, average gasification. Head is average sized, diminishes quickly and leaves a weak film. Aroma is overwheelming lemon, and maybe bread and wheat. Body is mild, carbonation is high, aftertaste is sweet and sour. Taste is fruity, yeasty, but maybe not very well balanced. Certainly, not the best from grimbergen.

RexTalionis (2403) - FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 08/2013. Pours hazy yellow in color with a small bubbly white head. Perfume, some coriander and orange peel in aroma. Quite soft and has a smooth mouthfeel. A bit of coriander in taste, some lemon and just a bit of butterscotch sweetness as well in flavor. No sharpness at all in this one, which is nice. A bit of peppery spicyness and ripe garden fruityness in finish.

330ml bottle. Malty, some spicy and sweet aromas. Pous very hazy light gold, with average creamy white head, vanishing, poor lacing. Light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is spicy, some sweet, malty. A Hoegaarden wannabe.
