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.

Złote, mętne piwo z puszystą ale niezbyt obfitą pianą i świeżym, pszenicznym, lekko przyprawowym aromatem. W smaku gęste i kremowe, orzeźwiające, lekko pszeniczne, biszkoptowe, trochę cytrusowe z kolędrowym posmakiem.

Lots of green banana, spices, coriander, fresh. Hazy yellow, thin and short head. Light body and feel. Fruity fresh with bit pepper and coriander. Easy to drink, fruity fresh. Liked this one. Good white.

Tap at L’ Agape Cafe, Serris, France.
Pours a whispy, cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is lime, citrusy coriander, and orange yeast. Flavor is melon yeast, springy fruit, and peach. Tingly mouthfeel. Refreshing.

Bottle at the hotel restaurant with my dinner of duck confit in Paris. Sounds more exotic than it really was. Pours a medium to light gold, nice head. Aroma is wheat and an almost lime note. Flavor is a close match - a good bit of coriander, and instead of the typical orange peel notes, something that comes off more like lime or bergamot. Refreshing, and surprisingly enjoyable. Liked this one.

Buena impresión a primera vista con su turbio color amarillo y su escasa pero bonita espuma que se desvanece rápido. Aroma afrutado dulce Sabor tambián afrutado con variantes de especias y un regusto final muy agradable.

On keg at 442 Bar Milano - hazy light straw colour with a thin white head. Citrus nose with notes of wheat, coriander, and clove. Body is somewhat thin with lively carbonation. Flavour is citrusy wheat with spicy coriander notes. Finishes mildly bitter. Very refreshing, great summer beer, ideal for a night outside in the heat.

I drank a bottle of this while watching the sunset behind the Eiffel Tower... good times. Hazy pale yellow beer with a thick white head. Very bright coriander aroma, bitter orange and lemony citrus. Also a nice spicy yeastiness behind the citrusy top notes. Flavour is lovely and sweet. Soft wheatiness with a more substantial breadiness than I would have expected. A lightly honeyed lingering sweetness backing up the spiciness. A bit of a surprise really.

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy yellow colour with a big white head. Has a good spicy aroma with plenty of citrus flavours. The taste is all coriander and citrus with a slight hint of orange. II really did like this.
