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.

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.

coldbrewky (1418) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2014
16oz. Can. Bright white expanding head that settles to moderate foam. Steady carb thru all the floaties. Muted corriander and associated spices. Body is soft and full. A slight twang of citrus upfront. Sweet malts and light spices and funk till end. A nice beer to yell at the cable company with. I enjoyed both the beer and the yelling. Stupid cable people.

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Hazy pale golden body with a dense white head.
Aroma: The aroma smells exactly like milk with Fruit Loops. Exactly.
Taste: Creamy semi-sweet body, straw and milky Fruit Loops. Very interesting. Refreshing and creamy, enjoyable.
Palate: Creamy bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I’ve never tasted a beer that tasted exactly like Fruit Loops in milk. Definitely interesting and enjoyable. I like this a lot.

Icedwarf (251) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Licht geel bier met schuim. Smaak is fris zuur en fruitig, citrus en banaan. Blijft redelijk lang hangen. Goed bier voor warme dagen.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy, yellow-ish golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Slightly muggy apple aroma, a touch of lemon, cautious yeasty overtones. Taste is dry, minimally tart, wheaty, a touch of lemon, some coriander, subtle sugary sweetness; nice carbo. Not too sweet, quite refreshing, OK.

Parnsi (11) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours hazy and unfiltered. Mild head. Aroma of spices and citrus. Taste a bit sweet but mostly bland. An easy drinking mild wit without much special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Timvim (43) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140619. Beige, almost white and cloudy with a nice fluffy head. Aroma of a lot of citrus fruits and coriander. Taste citrus, wheat, soap and perfume. Starts very refreshing, but the citrus-soapy-perfuminess (almost like urinal tablets) is a bit disturbing.
