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.

This is not the Manniken Pis that we used to get. That stuff was IT! This isn’t too bad a substitute, but still it ain’t it. Pale hazy yellow in color, white head and decent lace. Slightly sweet and tart. Not too thin. Drinkable. Some citrus but little spicyness. Having this draft at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin.

...a nice, refreshing wit that lacks just a little body, but good nonetheless. Nice curaco and spice characteristics, but a little lacking on head retention. Overall, a great Wit.

From a bottle purchased at By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a soapy yellow-white-silver body. Medium to large white head. Lots of spiciness and cloviness in the nose. Crisp and highly sessionable. This beer hit the spot and I could slam it all day!
