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 (105) - - 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.

brnandersen (3181) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2016
25 cl from tap at Café Bruxelles, Lausanne. Hazy, golden colour with a creamy, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus fruits, yeasts, coriander, orange zest, light banana and wheat malts. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes slightly dry and fruity with yeasts and slightly spiced notes. Nothing special but a fine thirst quencher in the summer heat.

0.5 tap.
A hazy, yellow color with a small, white head. Aroma is citric, banana and bubblegum feature prominently too - quite standard for the style but nonetheless pleasant. Taste is sweet: bananas, vanilla, and spices form the backbone. A medium body, a creamy/slick texture, and a below-average carbonation. Finish is rather sweet but not particularly long. Overall the beer is fine, it represents the good side of the commercial brewing industry.

Cerveza blanca. Sabor bastante bueno típico a trigo, aunque lleva malta de cebada. Deja un sabor dulce, quizas por el caramelo o azúcar que lleva.

midovark (343) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUN 9, 2016
0.33 l, üveges. Ízében és illatában is inkább hajaz egy weizenre mint witbier-re. Az hogy glükózszirupot és egyéb nyalánkságokat is tartalmaz, nem kifejezetten teszi szinpatikussá, habár az íze ettől függetlenül kellemes.

Búzasörre jellemző, kellemes,komlós íz. Habja tömör,hamar elillan. Minimális utóízként a komlós íz megmarad. Illata átlagos. Alkoholtartalma miatt kicsit erősebb az átlagosnál.
