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.

Bottle from Masuyo’s Liquor. Poured into a tulip pint. Hazy straw color with a nice white head with small champagne like bubbles. Orange, pepper and apple on the nose with some nice floral notes, especially jasmine. Average carbonation with a light body. Sweet and fruity on the palate with a lightly dry finish. A hint of pepper on the finish and a touch of saison-like yeast.

thellgren (534) - 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. That’s maybe the coriander? Overall, quite refreshing but don’t expect a memorable taste or palate.

jjsint (1663) - 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.
