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.

Vinx (64) - - NOV 8, 2013
Very little white head for its style and not persistent at all. Fruity aroma with hints of citrus and pineapple. Very bad on the palate, it sets your teeth on edge like a lemonade. In one word: pretentious.

djoeye (1530) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2014
Just off white short lived layer. Hazy yellow golden grey body. Aroma; sweet malts, berries, lemon, citric hops, lemongrass, bouquet of spices. Taste; wheat malts, sweet citric hops, coriander, clove, ginger, cinnamon, coffee, chocolate, Normal on palate, lively carbonated. Finishes fruity, still fresh. Overall likeable brew which makes a kind of standard for witbiers. [33cl br bottle 6%abv BB11.14]

bartholos (17) - GERMANY - SEP 18, 2014
On tap in Paris. Light golden colored, hazy with a minimal fast vanishing head. The aroma is dominated by citrus with some wheat. The taste is sour with citrus and slightly fruity wheat flavors in the finish. The light body with soft carbonation and the thin texture makes it a good thirst quencher. Overall, however, just an average wit.

Bière blanche pour le grand public. A boire si on a vraiment très soif. Aucun intérêt.

wimpyjoe (3976) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Keg @ L’Oxford, Nice. Hazy straw colour with a thin bubbly head. Has a good wit character with a lemon aroma. Has a drier taste of the fruit.

Erasmus_ro (1376) - Alabama, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle, BBE 01/15. Pours a slightly hazy, hale yellow with a rather small blanket of white foam. Well, not even a blanket really. Aroma is rather sweet with lemon, coriander and peach. Taste is lightly sour, fairly sweet, lemon and coriander, some bubblegum, light wheat. Rather fruity, a bit watery. Rather thin with medium carbonation. Surprisingly thin for something this strong. I guess it’s due to the syrup and sugar.

Beese (1822) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Draught at Le Glacier, Limoges on 24 August. Poured a cloudy ochre colour, with a large, dense white head. Aroma of bread, cloves and peaches. Rich fruit flavours, with some candy sugar and wheat. Finish was yeast, banana and soft fruit.

Joakgust (894) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow gold beer with a large disappearing white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, coriander, spices, wheat and grass. Flavor is spicy with notes of citrus, wheat, coriander and spices. Balanced, perhaps a bit sweet but refreshing.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Draught La Rotonde Paris 06/08/14. A hazy orangey yellow coloured beer with a white head. A nice if friendly witbier. Good orangey citrus notes and some decent spice. a nice body. Not bad at all. Score 3.4
Subsequent rating also scored 3.4

McWorta (596) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 22, 2014
Soft white fast fading head and a nearlz fully opaque sun yellow colour. On the nose aromas of wheat, light citrus/lemon, hints of wet green leaves and notches of vanilla and coriander arise. Light lively texture, light body with a light bitter sweet taste. The finish is soft and somewhat short-medium. Balanced beer but also rather one dimensional in taste compared to the aroma.
