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 (86) - - 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.

ska (212) - ITALY - JUL 14, 2015
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 (53) - 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.

Teran (168) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 4, 2015
Typical Witbier from Belgium. Good on nose. little bit stronger in alcohol from the competition. Sweet in aftertaste. Light and spicy at the same time. Very refreshing and flavourful. Very good beer.

blankboy (6583) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
[Draught at La Favorite, Paris, May 23] 35th rating of my Paris/Amsterdam trip. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, herbs, wheat, a bit of sugary sweetness and a hint of bubblegum or banana. Refreshing flavour of yeast, wheat and citrus along with light herbal notes and a touch of sugar. Some other fruit as well. Average bodied. Refreshing on this warm day, nothing wrong with this Wit.

jamaty (1241) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Pajiza amarillenta. Poca espuma para el estilo. Cítrica y especiada. Muy refrescante nada cansina. Predominio citrico. Final seco y bastante especiado, algo de pimienta y el típico clavo. Buena wit.
