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.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Frothy white head that persists. Very light straw color color. Aromas of lemmon and orange zest. Lightly sweet unmalted wheat graineyness with orange and lemmon and some spicey yeast phenolics. Very low hop flavor and bitterness. Very refreshing.

pineypower (3090) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Pours out a very light cloudy yellow with a moderate, well carbonated white head. Light aroma, some citrus and spice. Taste is very light and refreshing, citrus with some coriander in there too. Don’t usually this style, but this one wasn’t bad.

Raided from my Dad’s fridge. Pours a cloudy yellow white. Looks like a nice witbier. Smells of wheat and yeast. Flavors of yeasty lemons, orange, and coriander. Slightly lemony sour finish. Good beer for this style.

On tap at Newport Pizza and Ale house. Pours with a pee-pee color with a yeasty haze. Nose is a little tart with grapefruit hints. Taste is light with a dry semi sweetness throughout but ends quickly and watery. Not at all bad just a mellow afternoon ses. beer~ cheers j.h.b. III

bottle. pours a white / cloudy yellow with a 1/4" white head which lasts throughout... slight aromas of citrus... there is a mixture of caramel and oranges on the palate. Some spice on the tip of the palate as well. Very refreshing summer / spring beer.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle. 11.2 fl. oz. An opaque, yellow straw color with big, foamy, white head. Aromas of orange, spice and wheat. Medium bodied with a soft texture and a fizzy, dry finish. Flavor is fairly sweet to start then rounded out nicely by refreshing sourness. Normally not a huge fan of the style but I liked this one.
