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 L’Alsacienne Blanche de l’Eté.
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 3°C and 6°C.

Loin d’être la meilleure bière blanche que j’ai pu essayer. Elle rafraîchit mais ne correspond pas à mes goûts.

heavy (2665) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle. It poured a hazy pale yellow body with a big head atop. Lemon, coriander and bubblegum aroma. Flavor was a bit sweet, sugary, with bubblegum, fruity (peach), chalk and coriander notes. Medium bodied with moderately long finish. Okay, a wit on the sweeter side but therefore also full for the style.

Hazy to cloudy yellow color, medium sized white head. Artificial aroma, sour and spices. Banana taste, also sour. Lively carbonation, medium body. Drinkable, very mild and not exciting at all. //bottle at Vrutak

pityu (560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle - Cloudy pale straw colour, large, dense white foamy head, fair retention. Spicy and wheaty nose with some dough, coriander, orange peel, crushed wheat. Taste is a bit sourish, some bread, orange, lemon, coriander, some honey tones. Light body, lively carbonation, slick mouthfeel, refreshingly dry finish. Nice wit, but not the best at all.
