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.

bartlebier (1760) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle@Poechenellekelder Bxl 09/2014. Pours a hazy dishwater-tepid yellow perturbed by a greenish mist. Heavily spiced & sweetish aroma of coriander, banana bubble gum, kitschy and sweetly perfumed. Taste is wheat-fruity with unfocused notes of peach, sweet lemon and a brackish undercurrent of white cabbage. Dull cardboard finish. A macro Wit, just a small step up from Huyghe.

Very pleasing to the senses - smells fruity with a fresh, spring-like aroma. Taste has hints of citrus and spice. Excellent during late Spring and Summer. Very refreshing and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
