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.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
Ahhh blanches. I like em so much but sometime it feels like they are all the same... that one reminded me a lot of Hoegaarden too. Big white head and strong citrus aroma. Taste of agrumes and wheat. Watery.

kepano (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 15, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2006 Crisp and refreshing, very similar to Hoegaarden but without much of an orangy aftertaste.

Paskal (146) - La Prairie, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2005
Bouteille-De couleur jaune pale, opaque, colet abondant ainsi que la présence de petits grains noirs dans le fond de la bouteille. Elle présente une odeur amalgamé de citron et de plastique, goûte le citron (mais celui dont on se sert pour récurer les toilettes!) et le houblon.--Bottle-A pale yellow opaque liquid with a generous white head and the presence of small dark grains in the bottom of the bottle. She has a mixed smell of citrus with the smell of plastic bag, tastes citrus (the one we use to clean up the toilet!) and houblon.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Pale yellow, bordering grey due to the loads of unclean impurities. Nice fluffy head. Some citrusy freshness with a dash of coriander I reckon, although it’s not overly spiced. Fresh alright but far from the most distinctive witbier. 020498

rederic (3063) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2005
Hazy yellow palecolor, with shy foamy head, spicy coriander, orange peels, citrus fruits aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate, with a juicy-citrusy fruits flavor, hint of lactic acidity, tartness accent in a lemony dry and crisp finish, in a very refreshing way.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2005
On draught at Mondial, 6/4/2005. Hazy white-gold body with a foamy, light lemon-yellow-flecked white head that recedes to cover and then clumps around the edges. Light lacing as well. Smells bubble-gummy and lemony. Pleasantly tart and crisp wheat and spice notes as well. Flavor begins with lemon and coriander and yeast. Quite acidic and tart, like the l’amere a boire blanche. Medium body with no thinning. Some dry grains and honey. Medium body, lightly soapy texture with moderate carbonation. Some chewy yeast on the end.

Dorqui (2112) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 9, 2005
Yellow pale color, nearly luminescent, torbid and clearly. Light scent of wine cellar. Delicate notes of lemon and orange, little prickly and homogenous. Medium end, lacking in bitter.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2005
A decent witbier. Nothing spectacular. Clear and crisp. Slight tartness. Some yeasty flavors too. Poured a big beautiful white head.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2005
Coudy yellow beer with good white head. Nice touch of wheat in the nose, touches of lactic sourness and hints of witbeer spices. Taste is smooth, light citrussy and has complex accents of spices and coriander. Body is on the watery side and the taste is a little out of balance.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2005
Pale hazy lemonade color, smallish white head, a few particles. Fairly average flavor and aroma for the style, dominant yeast aspect.
