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.

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.

YantarCoast (324) - 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 (177) - 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.

Moebbels (413) - 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.

lello4ever (112) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2015
Blanche di livello buono, colore giallo paglierino con schiuma frizzantina, aroma discreto, buona al palato, limitati i sentori di agrumi, piuttosto carbonata e leggera da bere.

La millor cervesa de blat que he tastat fins el moment. Ell coridandre hi és present de manera obscena, i m’encanta. Gran birrot!

Arek (427) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland. Słomkowe piwo o grubej, puszystej, sztywnej i trwałej pianie oraz słodkim, cytrusowym zapachu. W smaku wodniste, zdecydowanie cytrusowe z minimalnymi akcentami kolendrowymi i kwaskowym finiszem.

Ysok02 (179) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2015
Robe paille, très belle mousse. Un beau nez citronné et levuré, très frais. Bouche à l’attaque élégante, belle bulle onctueuse, un coté citronné et une belle finale élégante. Un blanche pleine d’élégance, très agréable à boire.
