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.

Jerre (2613) - Waregem, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2006
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 (6065) - 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.

[Bottled] Yellow, unclear colour. Large, dense head. Spicy citrus and banana aroma. Flavour is more citrus and banana with some yeast added. A bit thin and fizzy.

thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2006
Pours very pale muddy yellow. Aroma of sweet banana, with a clear feel of apple juice. High carbonation. Fresh, but slightly anonumous in the taste.

Delicious if not a little dear. Surprised to see it on tap. Lovely tasting wheat beer as they usually are. a little sweeter than expected.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2006
Aroma has spice, wheat, citrus and yeast, hazy golden, pours a tiny white head. A mild taste of lemon, lightly spicey. Light bodied, easily quaffable. Thanks Jon Graham.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle courtesy of HogtownHarry! Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thin, frothy white ring that leaves some lace. Aromas are mainly cirtus with some yeasty bread, lemon cake, soapy, perfume. Taste is subtlelemon and banana, lots of yeast with no real clove to speak of. Waxy and chalky, semi-dry citric rind finish. I’ve wanted this for some time now, thanks Harry for the opportunity. Cheers.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2006
Cloudy yellow with small white head. Smells fruity with very little spices. Taste is very fruity (citrus, watermelon, apple, banana) and salty. Very little tartness. Thin and oily body. Weird mix of hop bitterness and yeast fruitiness in the finish. Below average witbier. Plus it’s not even brewed in Bruxelles, false advertising, I want my money back.

On tap. Hazy yellow in colour with a small head. Fruity and sweet. Feels kinda artificial. Hints of citrus and spices.
