COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Also sold as Blanche de Quenast in Dia/Ed supermarkets, as Floreffe Wit for Floreffe Abbey, as Mediterranea for the Italian market, as Blanche de Francorchamps, as t Geheim van de Smit, as Manneken Pis, and as LíAlsacienne Blanche de líEtť.
Ingredients: Malted barley; wheat (40%); coriander; bitter orange peel; sugar; hops; yeast.
Blanche de Bruxelles owes its natural cloudiness to the large percentage (40 %) of wheat that goes into its composition. The natural spice aromas of coriander and bitter orange peels are added during the brewing process. The brewing method, which includes infusion, is very slow. The beer, which is not filtered, is bottled and refermented with yeast and brewing sugar. You need only take a sip of this delicious drink to appreciate the fresh and mellow flavour with its hint of orange. It is really not like any other beer. Always served chiled, between 3įC and 6įC.

Bottle from Savori shared with multiple people. App: hazy straw, small white head. Taste and palate: lots of cereals in mouth, light body, light sweetness, light dry acidity finish. Overall: refreshing, not bad but not exceptional.

thellgren (406) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2015
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Nice head, cloudy grapefruit colour. Taste is mainly citrus in a sour way and something else. Thatís maybe the coriander? Overall, quite refreshing but donít expect a memorable taste or palate.

@special event. Nice to have cold, but I donít really appreciate that much this. Ham aroma into perfectly plain.

Pours pale yellowish white. White head. Aroma is lemon, coriander, jasmine, orange blossom, bread. Watery, flat, non-lingering.

jjsint (1256) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
On keg tap at the Swan & Rushes, Leicester. Straw, cloudy with a big white head. Light but enticing scent of wheat and unidentifiable citrus. Sweet and somewhat herbal taste with a sourness rounding it off. Very little discernible flavour really. Nice body with good carbonation, but the finish is extremely short. Very disappointing.

Thirstyboris (19) - Camperdown, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2015
Lite aroma. Appearance slightly cloudy. Weakish taste lifted by a slice of orange. Good drinking beer.

slowrunner77 (6738) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 21, 2015
pretty thin standard wit. nothing wrong with it save for a weak feel, but does nothing to stand out either. refreshing on a warm day, simple...coriander, orange and light yeast.

BOSSbrewer (2521) - Arkansas, USA - APR 13, 2015
On tap at 28 Springs. Pours a very light, pale yellowish with one finger of foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty and bready. Some grassiness. Flavor follows but is very mild. Somewhat watery and mild. Not much going on. Decent drinkable lawnmower beer, but not much more.

VincentKabel (262) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Itís a Belgian White but a very plain one. Not very much flavour nor aroma. No aftertaste and overall pretty boring. Itís not filthy, but not nice as well, itís nothing.

Mars276 (44) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 2, 2015
Kolor: Słomkowy, piwo jest opalizujące i unosi się w nim drobniusieńka zawiesina (podejrzewam, że to kolendra, bo na drożdże mi nie wygląda, ale jeśli to kolendra, to dziwne, że nie czuć jej potem ani w aromacie ani w smaku). Piana: Obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, średnio trwała, pozostawia niezły lacing. Aromat: Głůwnie cytrusowy, kolendry jest tu niewiele. Smak: Cytrusowy, kolendry brak. Piwo jest wytrawne, ale nie wodniste. Goryczki brak. Wysycenie: Niskie do średniego. Jak na witbiera pewnie mogłoby być wyższe, ale ja akurat takie wolę. Opakowanie: Siermiężna etykieta. Brak informacji o zasypie, chmieleniu (chmielenie akurat w tym stylu, to może nie jest najważniejsze :-) i drożdżach. Słabo. Fajne, orzeźwiające piwo, ale kompletny brak kolendry utrudnia zaklasyfikowanie go do stylu witbier.
