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.

Draft. An unclear yellow beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt, lots of wheat, and coriander as well as light notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of wheat and lemon as well some coriander, leading to a dry wheaty, lemony, and spicy finish.

omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2008
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Cloudy pale straw colour, creamy head. Concentrated coriander and lemon juice aroma. Medium sweet with rounded mouthfeel and meium body. Orangey and heavily spicy. Really fruity with lots of coriander. Usually I am not a fan of strong witbiers, but I must admit to fancy this one.

Muddy pale blond color. Strange aroma, light wheat and chewing-gum. Sweeter than a typical Belgian Wit, with a light sweet oranges fruitness, correct bitterness. Drinkable.
