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.

Labeled as Blanche de Bruxelles. Pours a hazy straw color with creamy white head. Light fruit, coriander, orange peel, lemon zest, and bready wheat. A great tasting refreshingly easy to drink wit.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Cloudy white body with a small creamy white head. Aroma of light spice and bready crackers with some light tartness. Sweet fruity orange flavor with light honey and a touch of spice. Medium body with moderately high carbonation and a very smooth drinkable finish.

Draft. Pale yellw/straw color with a white head. Light fruit, light spice, light wheat/malt aroma. Light spice, slight banan, wheat, malt flavor with more wheat coming on as you drink more. Good balance. Medium-light body. Malt lingers with some spice, wheat, lemon/orange, summe fruit. Great wit. Tasty.

Cloudy yellow coloured, medium to big white head, fresh wheaty and coriander nose. The taste is also fresh wheaty and yeasty with notes of fruits and coriander. Citrusy finish. Nice and refreshing wit.

Pale yellow, tiny head. Freshly baked white bread aroma. Not much taste, no bitterness, no guts. Light bready finish. So boring, someone had to wake me up while I was drinking it.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2008
This is the Americanized version I guess, Blanche de Bruxelles. Very nice nose. Pungent, dry, coriander, orange peel. Nice clean white head. Nice and smooth, sweet, dry finish, a little bit flavorless after a couple of sips. Really dissapointing the more that I drink it. It doesn’t stand out at all. Low alcohol, it’s like a better tasting light beer. Not memorable. Boring actually.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Citrus aroma of lemon and orange. Very drinkable beer that is a bit too watered down. Citrus flavor of lemon and orange peel. Crisp but bland.

johndavidj99 (125) - Dallas, Maine, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Looks like lemonade with fine white (and disappearing) head. Aroma is lemons, yeast and coriander. Typical wit taste of orange and coriander but it doesn’t set itself apart from may favorite wit, St. Bernardus. It is pretty thin, but drinkable. Pretty clean taste overall.

MiP (15034) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle, 4.5%. Perfumy, sweet, spicy aroma. Milky hazy yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour has everything a wit should have, plenty of lemony citrus, spicy coriander. But could do with more wheat mouthfeel. Refreshing and thirst-quenching.
