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.

pityu (500) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle - Cloudy pale straw colour, large, dense white foamy head, fair retention. Spicy and wheaty nose with some dough, coriander, orange peel, crushed wheat. Taste is a bit sourish, some bread, orange, lemon, coriander, some honey tones. Light body, lively carbonation, slick mouthfeel, refreshingly dry finish. Nice wit, but not the best at all.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2016 Can poured hazy whitish yellow with dense white head. Light musty spice aroma. Light lemony flavor, musty/earthy essence as well. Very refreshing and a beer I really enjoyed.

Una birra che si beve con estrema felicitŕ in quanto risulta fresca e dissetante.Giallo paglierino.Schiuma poco persistente.Media effervescenza con bollicine poche e fini.L’aroma č di leggera intensitŕ , si ha un primo sentore di agrumi per poi sfumare in aromi piu dolci di lieviti e cereali.Corpo leggero, gusto dolce e fresco coon sfumature di agrumi e coriandolo. Non entusiasmante ma neppure sgradevole.

Fules (489) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 10, 2016
Kiöntéskor nagy, struktúrált hab, ami gyorsan magába roskad, és összetömörödik. Másfél centin megáll, innentől már lassan apad. Színe homályos, világos sárga. Illata gyakorlatilag nincs, alig érezhető, és meghatározhatatlan. Íze igen semleges, kortyoláskor némi citrusosság, és gyenge komlós keserűsség jellemzi. Lecsengéskor némi édeskés jegyek is felbukkannak. Igazán könnyed, gyorsan lecsúszó sör, igazi frissítő, bár az íze nem vág mellbe.

Maersk (111) - MOLDOVA - APR 24, 2016
Straw color, medium but thick and creamy head. Some carb. Glass and beer are overchilled :( But smells malt and wheat. Medium body with more malts and wheat in the taste. Some witbier sout spike tickling the throat. Good, but a bit empty.

Bottle 0,33l from Beer Club shop in Rijeka, Cro. Hazy pale yellow liquid with average white head. Taste is sweet, coriander, a hint of wine and something artificial in it. Parfumed smell.

veceo (1152) - CROATIA - APR 23, 2016
Hazy pale yellow color, thin white head. Wheat aroma, weak citrus, yeast, spices. Taste of banana, wheat, citrus, spices, candy. Light to medium body, average to high carbonation. Yeah, it was maybe little bit too warm but still... Not for me.
