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.

Light yeasty aroma, cloudy light gold pour. Light spicy notes, very noticable coriander and orange notes. Clean finish. Really outstanding for such a light beer.

From tap. Hazy dirty straw-yellow with a white head. Rather faint aroma - slightly yeasty some citric notes. Medium soft body with a medium sweetness. The flavor is fruity, hints of banana, lemon and sugar. Reminds a little bit of lemonade. A little to sweet with a light hoppy bitterness in the finish.
