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.

The Dan Journal #109. Tasted 9/25/07. 330ml bottle. Typical straw hue. Fingerwidth of white head. Floral wheaty nose. Lively yet easy. Moderate effervescence. Good citrus note with a touch sweet vanilla. Passion fruit undertones. Citrus and slightly chalky. Banana and spices. Super easy. Moderate.

Pours a clouded straw gold with a white head. Nose is like immature grass that has been cut. Not green grass, like a yellow grass that is still maturing. Flavor is mild with character. Subdued wheat flavors with a mild yeast. Feel is thick on the mouth as there seems to be a residue almost that clings to your mouth. A decent one, but nothing to run to the store to get. Nice to drink, but no Oscar winner.

11.2 ounce in pint glass. Pale cloudy yellow-orange with dense white head and lace. Mild coriander orange aroma. Very orangy fruity flavor, slightly overripe, with mild spice finish. Medium light body, medium carbonation. Slightly watery, but not overly. Very refreshing. Overall, enjoyable. Wouldn’t mind having again.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Very pale, hazy straw color with a white head. Aroma of lemon and wheat, with quite a hit of bubblegum. Flavor of lemon and coriander, dry finish. Flavor thins out significantly in the dry finish. For some reason, I couldn’t get the thought of dirty dishwater out of my head as I was drinking this. Drinkable, but nowhere near my top choice in Witbiers. 11.2 ounce bottle ’Blanche De Bruxelles’.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Blanche De Bruxelles. Pours very light hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is wheat with a hint of citrus. Flavor is tart with slight citrus corriander and yeast. Lighter flavors than most witbier, but man does it go down easy. I enjoyed this very much and it is a great beer. Proof that beer does not have to be 9%+ alcohol or insanely hopped to be good.

Has some certain potential, but overall it just doesn’t pack the punch that a good Wit beer should have. A bit hazy, the coriander feels a bit tacked on. malts is decent. worthy of a try

Blanche De Bruxelles: The aroma hints at coriander and orange but they are light. There is wheat and yeast however. The appearance is slightly hazy gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with more citrus and coriander. The palate is thin. Overall it’s very drinkable but nothing out of the ordinary.

Once again I’m not understanding low ratings for this style. Pours cloudy yellow with a good thick white head. The aroma is sweeter than normal for th style with lots of smooth orange, sweet wheat malt and a faint hint of coriander. Medium body that is very soft on the palate with light frothy carbonation. The taste is like the aroma, still much sweeter than normal for the style with some orange juice characteristics. the finish has a bit of coriander, pepper, some honeydew and light sourness. A quality wit beer.
