3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity, a bit soapy and yeasty aroma. Citrus-grapefruit flavor with yeast. Oily, light-bodied and refreshing palate. A quite nice Hoegaarden-like summer witbier.

Floreffe Wit. Cloudy yellow coloured, thin lacing. Fresh weizen aroma. Disappointing flavour, like a Fanta light. Sticky finish. Gets better when you pour the yeast thouigh. The only Floreffe i don't really like.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy straw yellow with minimal head. Initial taste was brandy-like loaded with yeast. Light lemon aroma. Highly carbonated mouthfeel. I think this is a little stronger than the 4.5% but then again the beer I'm rating is Blanche Foudroyante. Any questions, ask SDBruBoy.

Cloudy, whitish-yellow with a thin white head. Light fruity aroma, apple and citrus, lots of yeast. Fruity, citrus and wheaty flavor, sourdough bread with a slight tart finish. Full body and creamy carbonation. Nice treat and thanks to Eyedrinkale for sharing this goodie!

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Blanche de Bruxelles:
Orange and grapesaroma. A bit sweet and sour, but only just. Lemon and grapefruit in the flavor, just a bit of chalk and a hint of coreander. Good quality witbier.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Classic very light very cloudy, small white head. Aroma dominated by yeasty acidy notes with hints of fruits (citrus mainly). Flavor is dominated by a flat (but pleasant) acidy taste. Later comes citrus, wheat and a light watery bitterness. Not the best belgian white i have tasted, but definetly worth another try :-)

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 On tap at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Classic wit beer, which works well on draught, presented in a nice frosted glass. Perfectly balanced flavour, combining, chalky, milky, lemony notes, with added fizz and tanginess. This is particularly creamy on the front of the tongue, then the lemon kicks in big style. I'll say it again, classic opaque white beer - delicious.

I was in Brussels on a Saturday morning so I stopped in the first pub that had some decent food and a wit beer. Why a wit beer, well it is nice and light, with a fruitiness and pleasant spiciness from the wheat and added spices, and more importantly it was morning and it seemed an appropriate breakfast beer. This Wit was a nice cloudy whitish color and had a hint of refreshing acidity. It had a bit more body than I typically associate with a wit, but it did have a nice mild spicing to it. I must admit it was not incredible, but it was definitely satisfying.
