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.

Can. Nice beer, and a slightly unique take on the wit style. Aroma is sweet, with notes of honey and apricot. The flavor is similar, though fades much more quickly than I would have liked. Not much of the citrus/spice I normally associate with the style, but I still a nice beer.

Very cloudy appearance with a good frothy head. Has an initial sweet taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A very pleasant refreshing beer on a hot summer day.

Wanderings878 (36) - ITALY - JUN 30, 2015
Bottiglia. Aspetto piacevole, giallo pallido con moderata schiuma bianca, durata breve. Aroma delicato, limone, citrico, floreale e debolmente lieviti. Gusto fresco e gradevole, amarezza quasi inesistente. Corpo leggero, retrogusto debole, carbonatazione medio/alta. Birra piacevole, anche se non certamente indimenticabile.

Bottle from Masuyo’s Liquor. Poured into a tulip pint. Hazy straw color with a nice white head with small champagne like bubbles. Orange, pepper and apple on the nose with some nice floral notes, especially jasmine. Average carbonation with a light body. Sweet and fruity on the palate with a lightly dry finish. A hint of pepper on the finish and a touch of saison-like yeast.

thellgren (430) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2015
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Nice head, cloudy grapefruit colour. Taste is mainly citrus in a sour way and something else. That’s maybe the coriander? Overall, quite refreshing but don’t expect a memorable taste or palate.
