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.

Pours a nice hazy white/straw with a good, fluffy head. Smells yeasty with coriander and spice. There are nice notes of citrus, yeast, wheat, and coriander. It tastes like a better version of Hoegaarden. Not bad. Not my thing, but not bad.

MarkoNm (1743) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2015
Pours a hazy pale golden color, topped with a nice frothy white head. Mild yeasty aroma with decent presence of citruses and some spices as well. Starts sweet and fruity, citruses and slight soury feel in the body, some spices. Mild bittery feel in the finish and a bit yeasty. Pretty decent though nothing spectacular.

ChuckTR (41) - HUNGARY - AUG 12, 2015
40% búza felhasználásával készült sör! Koriander és curacao is került bele, természetesen messze elmarad másik belga társától! Nagy nyári melegben gyorsan lecsúszhat, kicsit üres az ízvilága!

Lilja (2185) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, vete, citrus, citron, grön banan med toner av koriander. Lätt kropp, lagom sötma, fin beska.

Decent Witbier flavor, and really good spice of coriander and orange peel. I say try it.

Qu3st33 (4) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2015 does not count
On tap at New World Tevern Plymouth, Ma. A somewhat generic white wheat, not bad not special. Somewhat lemony in after taste. Not worth buying, but drinkable if other better options are missing.
