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.

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2014
Igen halvány, fátyolos, enyhe citromsárga színű főzet, mely alulról fölfelé haladva sötétedő árnyalatú. Illata élénk, üde citrusosság, lágy fűszeresség és egy határozott, élesztős aroma árad belőle. Élvezeti értékét is nagyban meghatározza e frissítő, üde jelleg, fogyasztása során alapvetően ezen jellemzőit véljük meghatározónak. Egy rendkívül könnyed, élénkítő karakterű ital, melyben leginkább a citrusosan fűszeres, enyhén édes és kellemesen savanykás zamatok légiesen könnyű jelenléte uralkodik, így téve ezt a búzasört egy tökéletes nyári szomjoltóvá.

bonkiedeaap (242) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer has a light yellow color and nice large white head with a lot of bubbles. Very nice appearance. In the aroma tones of spices, orange peels, hops, yeast and malts. The taste is very fresh and a little sour and the tones from the aroma like the spices and orange peels are well noticable. The finish is refreshing and a little bitterness makes the beer a nice summer beer. Nice this beer, completely different from any other white beer, I can really appreciate it.

tmoreau (2310) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2014
On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL., and dispensed to a chalice/globe glass, with a cloudy, orangey color, fluffy, white head foam, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The nose was juicy & expressive lemon & orange, with light wheat, and coriander spicing. Light bodied, with lively carbonation that had a light seltzery edge to it, the taste enhanced the zesty fruit with a bit of tartness. Crisp, and very refreshing.

Nische (649) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014

Cloudy, pale golden. Aroma: refreshing and fruity. Taste wasn’t so good as smell - a bit too weak taste with accent of the hops. Nice, drinkable summer beer.
