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.

Knowing that I’m a Witbier love, I was a little bit disapointed (not much, but a little bit). The aroma and appearance are great, but the flavor is a little bit flat with touch of spice and citrus.

Bottle. I like Witbier, but I didn’t like this one. As others have observed, I found it over-spiced with Coriander.

saxo (14044) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle. Medium head with good duration. Typical witbier style. This one is too spiced up tho with orange and coriander.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2006
Jaune blanche, petit collet, arome légé d’agrume et son goût est trop légé pour ça sorte. Un peu d,agrume, mais pas plus.

Sigmund (5117) - 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.
