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.

Small bottle: poured cloudy lemon milky white gold with white bubbles, sweet fragrance with orange, faint vanilla, wheat aroma with sour and spice fragrances, some pear apple fruit aromas, citrus tart flavor on the tongue with a belgian wheat ale flavor, low to medium carbonation, I think this beer could have used more to liven it up, the mouth feel was watery, dry on the palate.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 Coloração amarela turva. Notas cítricas, possivelmente laranja. Refrescante. Poderia ter um sabor um pouco mais forte, já que é suave demais.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2007
Very pretty hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma has some honey, coriander, and lemon zest. Citrusy flavor with a sweet finish. Very light but good for the style and a fine lawnmower beer.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2007 Decent-looking beer. Both nose and tongue are dominated by coriander and spicebox. This brew stood out to me for its long finish, which let the fruit of the beer show through the heavy spicing. Certainly a unique and well-crafted beer.

Pailhead (5193) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2007
Bottle: The aroma has lots of lemon with light yeast and corriander and hints of orange. It pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small white head that quickly fades to a ring. The flavor starts with a mixture of moderate tart lemon with some light lemon candy. In the middle there’s a funky yeastiness and seems a little off. The flavors really thin out quickly in the finish and become watery with hints of corriander. The mouthfeel is a little thin with lively carbonation.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2007
Drinking from a bottle of Blanche de Bruxelles. Excellent pour, a cloudy pale straw body with a huge rocky white head that caves in ever so slowly. Nice lemony, spicy aroma with bread dough and a bit of soapy yeast. With that beginning, I was surprized that the ale is somewhat watery, thusly muting its flavors. It has soft wheat, light lemon juice, a trace of coriander, and a mild citric tartness. The finish is quietly spicy and leaves a bit of a powdery feeling in the mouth.

Bottled. Beer is cloudy, light lemony yellow with a small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head.<P> The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted bread, toasted wheat; Hoppy with light notes of herb, lemon zest; Moderate note of yeasty dough; Trace of orange flower water.<P> The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic with an average-length, lightly sweet, trace acidic finish. Some huskiness in the retros and a bit of an unclean after taste.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P> A bit overly bready/doughy, but not bad.
