2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big fan of this Belgian white. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color that is about the color of Hoegaarden. Nose is fruity, wheat like, and of yeast. Taste is fruity clean, and sweet. There is definitly cluster hops used in this beer which I love. It gives that subtle fruity pebbles taste which reminds me of sunset wheat or other such beers that use cluster hops. Really great BW.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 On draft at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours cloudy light gold, with tons of very fluffy white head and prominent lacing. Aroma of banana, spicy wheat, lemon, wet cider, a bit of chalk. Flavor is lemon, clove, cider, wet wheat, slight bubble gum. Very thin bodied, watery finish. Quite drinkable.

33 cl bottle, has the "mannekin pis" label which makes you think this is for tourists for sure, very cloudy, slight wheat beer with nice fluffy head, some lemony flavor not much else

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Henry St. A.H. served in the cloudy Blanche de Bruxelles glass. Yellow color with a frothy white head. Grassy and citrus aromas. Clean wheaty body with a light citrus, almost lemonadey flavor, with a slight dusting of coriander. Medium body with lively carbonation. If anything it could be a very refreshing summery slammer. Don’t look for too many nuances, however.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells like peed in cherrios with sugar. Pours medium cloudy yellow with a fuss of white foam. Has a good wheat with built in orange peel flavor. Only turn-off is the peeing kid on the bottle in the american version. Too bad.
