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.

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.

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.

labeerinthum (100) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 24, 2015
On tap @ Milano Beer Week. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è pregevole. Il gusto al naso rimanda al frumento e poi al coriandolo. Il cappello di schiuma è persistente con merletti. Il colore è giallo spento e torbido. Il corpo è pieno. A prevalere è pesantemente il dolce. L’amaro è leggero e percettibile, e non mancano l’acido medio, ma anche il metallico e persino il salato. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali la segnano con precisione come beverina. Il finale è felpato e pulito.

MarkoNm (1804) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2015
Pours a hazy pale golden color, topped with a nice frothy white head. Mild yeasty aroma with decent presence of citruses and some spices as well. Starts sweet and fruity, citruses and slight soury feel in the body, some spices. Mild bittery feel in the finish and a bit yeasty. Pretty decent though nothing spectacular.

ChuckTR (41) - HUNGARY - AUG 12, 2015
40% búza felhasználásával készült sör! Koriander és curacao is került bele, természetesen messze elmarad másik belga társától! Nagy nyári melegben gyorsan lecsúszhat, kicsit üres az ízvilága!

Lilja (2242) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, vete, citrus, citron, grön banan med toner av koriander. Lätt kropp, lagom sötma, fin beska.
