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.

pours a clean yellowish white color. Lots of flavor for how light and crisp this beer is. Fruity and citrusy but not overbearing. Very sessionable, and good for any time of the year. Most definitely my favorite tradition belgian whit style beer.

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Poured from a 500 ML can into pint glass. This beer has a very faint aroma of citrus and it pours a clear very slight golden color. It has moderate carbonation and has a semi dry finish. I found the flavor to be "empty" and not very impressive. Overall, a slightly better than average beer.

Cor palha, turva. Espuma boa e persistente. Aroma de casca de laranja. No paladar lúpulo, frutas cítricas e semente de coentro. Corpo leve. Retrogosto de suave amargor. Refrescante e boa drinkability.

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 (53) - 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.
