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.

draft @ Falling Rock. Wheaty with hints of spices and citrus. Pours very cloudy yellow with a good white head. Light wheat flavor, only hints of spices like corriander, lemon citrus, reminds me of Vuuve a lot.

PorterPounder (6395) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 11.2 fl oz bottle - labeled as Blanche de Bruxelles. Light golden, hazy, with a soft white head. Aroma of lemon joy and hard candy. Lemony flavor with a bit of sourness thrown in the back end. Some tonic water notes and a bit of citrus and coriander. Quite refreshing after working in the yard all afternoon. Fizzy, lively spritzy mouthfeel - just the right amount of carbonation.

RSRIZZO (1902) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had this beer on 8/25/1998. Color is a light hazy pale gold. Carbonation is low as well as the head. Aroma is a sour cider scent. Taste is light and sweet. Starts with a light body that goes down with a fizzy feel. Finish is a light sour cider taste that is a lot like the aroma.

17thfloor (2439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 Looks like a belgian white, big frothy white head with light straw color and some bubbles. Aroma of cottencandy. Very light flavors, citrus, some coriander. The body is thin with lots of tiny bubbles. Dry finish, very drinkable. Not an allstar but I would take it at a bar over macro anytime.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle. Hazy and hay colored with a strong coriander and yeasty aroma. Light wheat flavor with that undeniable spicy notes. Very drinkable but somehow missing something essential. I’ve had better.

BelgianBeerGal (3457) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Bottle under the Blanche de Bruxelles label. Very simple, watery witbier. Even mass produced Hoegaarden beats this. Just average. *However, if you try this directly at the Abbey as Floreffe Blanche, it is pretty tasty.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Draft. Under the name Blanche de Bruxelles. Aroma mostly wheat and touch of lemon. Hazy bright yellow with white cap. Flavor was wheaty banana and citric. Palate was medium thickness. Overall, not too bad.

The Dan Journal #109. Tasted 9/25/07. 330ml bottle. Typical straw hue. Fingerwidth of white head. Floral wheaty nose. Lively yet easy. Moderate effervescence. Good citrus note with a touch sweet vanilla. Passion fruit undertones. Citrus and slightly chalky. Banana and spices. Super easy. Moderate.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Pours a clouded straw gold with a white head. Nose is like immature grass that has been cut. Not green grass, like a yellow grass that is still maturing. Flavor is mild with character. Subdued wheat flavors with a mild yeast. Feel is thick on the mouth as there seems to be a residue almost that clings to your mouth. A decent one, but nothing to run to the store to get. Nice to drink, but no Oscar winner.

malrubius (2183) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 23, 2007
11.2 ounce in pint glass. Pale cloudy yellow-orange with dense white head and lace. Mild coriander orange aroma. Very orangy fruity flavor, slightly overripe, with mild spice finish. Medium light body, medium carbonation. Slightly watery, but not overly. Very refreshing. Overall, enjoyable. Wouldn’t mind having again.
