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.

The first really white beer I’ve had and I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. Looks great. Smells like some kind of candy. Goes down as easily and sweetly as you’d expect it too. Small head.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 Murky yellow in colour, long lasting medium sized white coloured head, great lacing. The aroma is lightly spiced, lots of oranges and lemons, floral and wheaty. The flavour is again just lightly spiced, good amount of lemon citrus, creamy, some floral hops. Very smooth mouthfeel, medium/light body, mild carbonation. Finishes with some mild spice, lingering, creamy. At first this style of beer was a bit much but I think that I am starting to come around.

330ml Bottle.
Best before June 29, 2007.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JAN 21, 2007
Lucky to find this bottle at Clichy’s Tavern in the Montemarte neighborhood of Paris. Pours a cloudy yellow with hints of orange. Big head. Smells of banana and clove. Nothing unexpected here, just a straightforward heffe. Taste is sweet wheat and citrus held in check by the coriander and clove. Refreshing, especially with a large meal. Thank you Belgium.

ross (2088) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Bottle shared by Daniel with Tom. Pours out a light yellow color without much of a head. Smell is full of citrus and other sweetness. Taste is smooth and pretty refreshing. A pretty average witbier. Not that bad though, and certainly hard to get in the USA.

harrisoni (13773) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2006
33cl bottle at The Rake, Borough. Cloudy gold colour, thick white head. Slight Belgian yeast aroma, citrus fruit and wheat. Lovely lemony fruit in mouth, clove too. Bit of puke on aroma along with soapy hop. Wheat and citrus lemon is nice in mouth, spice is good too. Rounded coriander, orange peel finish. Aroma is poor, but the body is wheaty, full and the finish has spice and orange.

Bottel, 33 cl. Cloudy yellow coloured with a white head. Sweet aroma of malts, fruits, citrus and spices. Flavour of fruits, citrus and spices with notes of berries. Not bad whitebeer.

Svesse (6162) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2006
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 30 Sep) Pale yellow colour, slightly hazy. Frothy white, disappearing, head. Fruity and spicy nose with notes of lemon and pineapple. Fruity and spicy taste with citrus notes, a bit like lemon zested washing-up liquid. Refreshing and fairly ok, but a bit boring to be honest.
