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.

On draft at the Saucer. Has a light hazy, golden body with ample white head. Aroma is of coriander and citrus. Grainy taste with some spicy and fruity notes admixed. Has a great mouthfeel. Better than the regular Hoegaarden in my opinion.

Mutno žute boje. Kiselkasti miris i jako slabo popunjeno tijelo. Bez nekih zanimljivih okusa. Mogu reći da me malo razočaralo...

Loin d’être la meilleure bière blanche que j’ai pu essayer. Elle rafraîchit mais ne correspond pas à mes goûts.
