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.

Bouteille (Blanche de Bruxelles). Couleur paille, voilée, mousse abondante et compacte qui s’estompe , trace un peu le verre. Arôme de levures, de citron, de blé. Goût très agrumé, blé, légèrement épicé. Finale très sucré et légèrement en amertume. Mince et aqueuse, effervescence moyenne à faible. Bof.

Pour was a beautiful cloudy white/gold with a nice 2 finger white head with a little lacing. Aroma was wheat and yeast. Flavor was bubbly and light with coriander, spices and orange throughout. Those flavors go away quick and the carbonation kicks them out of the way after you swallow. Not too dry in the aftertaste and the bubbles burn the tonsils. I’ve had better, but not too bad.

Floreffe makes some pretty awesome beer, and this one is good too. Very sweet aroma, light wheat and some citrus. Flavor has light spice, lots of wheat sweetness, and butter. A very smooth beer with excellent balance, and it is good cold or at room temperature. One of the best wits I have had in some time.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Citrus with orange and lemon and some mild tart notes. The body is a hazy dull yellow with a diminishing white head. Fore is light tasting with faint citrus, grain, wheat notes and a very muted coriander asspect. Nothing pops about it, nothing really comes out as flawed or inappropriate save the flavor concentration seems very low. Okish.

AskForJenny (1029) - Ontario, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 0.33l Blanche de Bruxelles bottle - Hazy, plae pour with a shortlived head. Bright, crisp flavors of citrus, mostly lemon, on the front, and then a malty, hoppy finish. Expected the front half, but not the back half.

Braudog (5952) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2007
From a "Blanche de Bruxelles" label with a 2008/07/03 best by date. Poured with the classical witbier appeal ... hazy yellow with a giant head of small white bubbles. Lightly lemony aroma with a hint of yeast. Also drinks by the book ... smooth and sweet, the same light lemon, and a bit of grass. (#2944, 5/30/2007)
