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.

16 oz can

Pours a lemonade color, could say it’s white. Cloudy, bubbly, lots of sediment. About two fingers soapy white head. Okay lacing, okay retention.

Aroma is a little bready, a little lemon peel, some coriander. Also, a little white grape juice. Very light, very fresh smelling. Nothing heavy.

Taste very fresh. Not real heavy on flavor, very light, but very tasty. Tastes wheaty, and little citrus comes through. It’s more sweet than biiter, and barely bitter if at all.. I still taste the white grape. There’s not a lot to describe, but it’s delicious.

Mouthfeel is super light. Almost champagne like. Super sessionable. Oh man, talk about a great summer mertime refreshment.

Overall, I’m surprised by this. It’s very good. Not much more to say. It’s not super flavorful, but it’s smooth and easy drinking. Everything comes together for a good brew

Overally good witbier. I am a fan of wheat beers, so I tend to overscore them a bit but I enjoyed that one.

Aroma of cereal, citrus, coriander, small white head quite persistant, light coudy yellow, medium body, medium carbonation, taste (not very clean) of herbs, lemon and spices....good wit that doesn’t excel.

J’y avais déjà goûté et n’avais même pas pris le temps de la noter ici. Mais voici : c’est au bout de compte assez désagréable. Ça goûte le savon à l’arôme chimique de fleurs. C’est relativement vivant comme liquide mais c’est pas mal la seule qualité que j’arrive à lui trouver. Probablement ma dernière bouteille à vie.

cervmagpt (622) - PORTUGAL - FEB 18, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 24A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L18042017. AROMA: citric aroma predominant with a moderate sweetness. notes resemble a mix of orange, slight lemon and some coriander, but with more orange in the balance. Low but present wheat aroma. APPEARANCE: pale yellow and hazy. large creamy white head with good retention. TASTE: citric flavor of moderate intensity, with predominant orange but also some lemony (coriander). Low background wheat with low bitterness. The finish is semi-sweet with a wheat presence. PALATE: medium-light body with a slight fluffy texture. medium-high to high carbonation and slightly fizzy. no orange pith astringency. OVERALL: a witbier with aroma and flavor within the style but with the balance towards orange.
