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.

Thirstyboris (7) - Camperdown, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2015 does not count
Lite aroma. Appearance slightly cloudy. Weakish taste lifted by a slice of orange. Good drinking beer.

slowrunner77 (6600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 21, 2015
pretty thin standard wit. nothing wrong with it save for a weak feel, but does nothing to stand out either. refreshing on a warm day, simple...coriander, orange and light yeast.

BOSSbrewer (2318) - Arkansas, USA - APR 13, 2015
On tap at 28 Springs. Pours a very light, pale yellowish with one finger of foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty and bready. Some grassiness. Flavor follows but is very mild. Somewhat watery and mild. Not much going on. Decent drinkable lawnmower beer, but not much more.

VincentKabel (262) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
It’s a Belgian White but a very plain one. Not very much flavour nor aroma. No aftertaste and overall pretty boring. It’s not filthy, but not nice as well, it’s nothing.

Mars276 (36) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 2, 2015
Kolor: Słomkowy, piwo jest opalizujące i unosi się w nim drobniusieńka zawiesina (podejrzewam, że to kolendra, bo na drożdże mi nie wygląda, ale jeśli to kolendra, to dziwne, że nie czuć jej potem ani w aromacie ani w smaku). Piana: Obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, średnio trwała, pozostawia niezły lacing. Aromat: Głównie cytrusowy, kolendry jest tu niewiele. Smak: Cytrusowy, kolendry brak. Piwo jest wytrawne, ale nie wodniste. Goryczki brak. Wysycenie: Niskie do średniego. Jak na witbiera pewnie mogłoby być wyższe, ale ja akurat takie wolę. Opakowanie: Siermiężna etykieta. Brak informacji o zasypie, chmieleniu (chmielenie akurat w tym stylu, to może nie jest najważniejsze :-) i drożdżach. Słabo. Fajne, orzeźwiające piwo, ale kompletny brak kolendry utrudnia zaklasyfikowanie go do stylu witbier.

YantarCoast (376) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAR 20, 2015
500ml can. Pours opaque yellow with a medium pillowy white head. Aroma is orange peel, lots of lemon and there's spice here too. Light bodied. Refreshing, but different to a typical witbier.

Syfher (183) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle of 33cl, in a witbier glass; from the fridge. Nice witbier, with a little spiced taste. Not the very best one... Too light palate and aroma.

Summery citrus, candy, fruits, honey, flowers. Summery feeling. Not bad. Can drink again.

Moebbels (419) - FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow body with a fluffy, white head. Nose has aromas of yeast, black pepper and citrus fruits. Taste is quite mild and neutral with a soft, dry finish. Lively and creamy carbonation and medium body. Nice, simple witbier.
