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.

Very enjoyable white. Had this one to drink at Wilhelminadok in Amsterdam Noord. Hints of ctirus. A bit more complex than Hoegaarden or Wieckse Witte.

RCx240 (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015
Hazy, pale gold. Frothy white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of oranges, yeast, dough, clove, coriander, and a touch of ginger. Taste is tart, orange and coriander. Finishes with a lingering lemon quality. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Refreshing, citrus qualities are not overwhelming. Pretty good.

Draught @ ProRock Pub, Kiev. Hazy pale yellow with small frothy white head, sweet citrus arima, low carbonation, faintly sweet citrus taste, abrupt finish with citrus peel aftertaste. Very nice witbier!

panzerwolf (225) - FINLAND - OCT 31, 2015
A sweet herbal taste that is balanced by a tinge of crispness of fruit that gives it a slight bite. Citrus, hay, overall a very refreshing beer.

Franckg (654) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2015
Bouteille expirant le 13/07/2016, bue 9 mois avant cette date. Robe jaune pâle plutôt limpide surmonté d’un col de mousse blanc assez ordinaire. Arômes de banane et orange, malt de blé légèrement sucré et eau citronnée. Un peu de levures en arrière-plan. En bouche, citron à l’avant-plan, levures, malt, coriandre par la suite. Un peu d’orange dans les effluves finales. Banane plus en retrait mais tout de même perceptible. Texture légère et aqueuse. Blanche dans sa plus grande simplicité.

Coloração claro pálida, turva, dentro do esperado para uma witbier. Espuma de formação boa mas não tão forte, retenção longa de forma uniforme e branca. Suja bastante a parede. Aroma de banana e malte leves. Na nova notas cítricas e coentro, alta carbonatação, bom corpo, adstringência baixa e final demorado. Muito refrescante. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bierdimpfe (51) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2015
Veiled pure golden color with tons of activity. Extra foamy 3 finger white head lasting around 3 minutes with some good legs. Fresh sweet aromas and flavors of lemon, fruits, wheat, floral spices. Very well balanced salivating sweet fruity taste with a pleasant sharp citrus feel. Light slick body with a fresh crisp zesty feel. Perfect short and faint sweet and floral spicy finish. Overall : Delicious craft , one of my favorite witbier, super fresh and perfect while eating.

jamaty (1546) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 7, 2015
Aspecto típico, pajiza blanquecina, turbia consistente y de espuma blanca notable (menos que en otras). Aroma cítrico con levadura presente, así como especias. Pimienta. En boca cuerpo moderado y gas punzante sin molestar. El sabor se sale algo del arquetipo de witbier, Mas especiada y donde se perciben los añadidos en la receta (Curacao). Carácter seco y cítrico. Curiosa y agradable.

anstei (531) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Very much to the style and rather ordinary, but not in a bad way. Some citrus, very smooth, and quite refreshing.

SkillsFactory (279) - ITALY - SEP 26, 2015
Color limone, schiuma bianca non molto densa ma di buona persistenza. Aroma di scorza di limone, coriandolo, frumento e leggero pepe. Al palato stesse caratteristiche con nota pepata finale. Corpo leggero, ben carbonata, leggermente acquosa.
