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.

Draft at Fred’s Rivertown Alehouse. Pours cloudy bright yellow with dense, fizzy white head. Big tart lemon and orange nose. A little bit of sweat there, too. Body’s on the high side of medium with very forward fizz. Lots of sharply defined flavors: lemon, orange, grass, wheat. Vanishing finish.

Draft. Very tart/sour. Not hyper-carbonated for a witte. Not that memorable either.

Plain white with subtle sour taste. Sits flat in glass. Not my favorite white, but, then again, I’m not as big on the white as I am on other light styles.

Blanche De Bruxelles 330ml Bottle. wow, this looks like a cloudy lager, it looks so wattered down........decent citrus aroma, not much yeast though. Flavour is again citrus, but very wattered down. I can see this being a good beer for a beginner, its pretty wattery though for a wit.

(Blanche de Bruxelles draught) Cloudy yellow, citrus wheat aroma, flavor is similar, though weak and watery. Basically a hoegarden.

Skyview (5295) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle shared by brefiend, pours a hazy pale golden yellow brew with a diminishing white head. Aroma of orange and lemon peel with some mild tart character. Taste is light citrus, multi-grain, and some coriander. Finish is dry with a lemon aftertaste.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2007
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.
