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.

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2006
Draught in Nice, France, as "Bière Blanche de Floreffe". Served with a quarter slice of lemon, which I instantly pulled out of the glass. Hazy pale colour. Pleasant lemony aroma, some spice too. Moderate citrussy flavour, faint notes of coriander. Drinkable and refreshing, but not a "big" beer.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2006
A hazy straw colored beer with a small white head. Tangerine and corriander with a touch of bubblegum. Crisp and refreshing, citrusy with noticeable wheat flavors. Sweet middle yet a tart finish and follow. Quite tasty! I’d like to have this again in the middle of Summer!

iosonomarco (41) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 31, 2006
Aroma di frumento con spiccate note di coriandolo e di agrumi e lievi sentori di camomilla. Il gusto è molto ricco e complesso con sentori di agrumi e un ben equilibrato alternarsi del dolce con l’amaro/acidulo. Leggermente astringente. Frizzantezza leggermente troppo elevata per i miei gusti.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle. Very cloudy pale yellow. Small white head. Typical witbier aroma. Fairly dry, yeasty. Hint of drainpipiness. Flavor mainly of dry yeast. Absolutely no aftertaste or finish whatsoever. The lamest witbier I’ve had so far.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2006
A Mes rate: Tap at Lowlander. Another freebie after a lock in and its a good job. Not really worth paying money for.

mabjork (667) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2006

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2005
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour with white creamy head. Sweet toffeeish aroma. Flavour is bananaish citrus with some yeasty, soapish notes. Aftertaste and palate is dry. Flavour is cut pretty bad in this one, it lacks both a proper finish and aftertaste.

Finn (4001) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2005
Big head that soon settles. Cloudy apperance. A typical wheat beer - but a bit light bodied.
