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.

0,25L bottle. Calm wheat aroma. Quite fruity taste and appropriately mild. I dont like wheat beers and this one is normal. Apparently it is due to a watery beer.

rotaman14 (359) - Germany, lives in Vilnius, LT, - AUG 27, 2015
Aroma is mostly yeast and banana, some hops. Taste is medium bitter, yeasty aftertaste. Palate is creamy. More similar to a Hefeweizen than to a Witbier, but whatever.

Beaucoup trop de citron dans la pinte pression que j’ai bu au Trocadéro. Sinon ça doit être frais pour être bu.

Birra blanche non particolarmente sorprendente, non molto fruttata, è comunque una birra beverina

sonotono (131) - torino, ITALY - AUG 9, 2015
Colore biondo chiaro opalescente. Schiuma non troppo persistente. Carbonazione bassa. Odore speziato, coriandolo, dolce e leggermente citrico. Sapore di grano, speziato, dolce e asprigno. Una buona birra di grano speziata, bilaciata, godibile e dissetante.

33cl bottle, foggy pale yellow color, medium white head, wheat aroma with orange peel, coriander, yeast and hops notes, light sweet flavor, medium body, weak finish with some citrus aftertaste, not so well balanced (ha un qualcosa di cremoso/dolcioso sia nell’aroma che nel corpo che non mi convince, nemmeno so spiegarlo in italiano figurati nel mio inglese stentato)

Wanderings878 (60) - ITALY - JUL 11, 2015
Spina. Colore giallo pallido e torbido, schiuma bianca, breve durata. Aroma che varia dal frumento al lievito belga, leggera nota floreale e citrica. Gusto ben bilanciato, non troppo dolce, dove tutto il potere rinfrescante di questa birra si sprigiona. Corpo medio e carbonatazione bassa. Molto godibile, profumata e dissetante.
