Thanks Mathieu87. Sampled draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy amber, creamy white head. Huge citrus USA hops nose, creamy malts, fruity,… Taste is creamy malts, faint bread, sweetish fruity citrus hops, blueberry, lemon drops, creamy body. Bitter hop finish, delicious. I wouldn’t call this a Blanche, the hops rule here. Doesn’t really mater, this beer rules.

erickok (3549) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 30, 2012
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Yellow bodied, smell white lace. Very fresh hop profile from the soraci ace, white bread. Good light bitterness, active body, great! (On tap at Borefts 2012) Re-rate. Like it even better this time. Fresh hop profile of some sweeter fruits but mostly floral,, crisp citrucy aromas. Bit of bready malts to support, but keeping it clean and refreshing. Such a great summer taste, quite strong bitter feel due to the light body. Moderate alcohol is appreciated and its very drinkable. I will certianly buy more of these when the summer (BBQ!) arrives. Yes! (33cl bottle from Au Nom De La Bière)

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - OCT 11, 2012
Tasted on tap @Borefts fest 2012. Aroma is incredible, very hoppy, grassy, citrusy and slightly piny, super refreshing. Taste follows aroma, adding some wheat notes. Great refreshing beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, merci Pierre. BB 05/2016. Dorée sur léger trouble, col blanc. Arôme est agréablement fruité offrant de belles effluves citronnées voire tropicales rappelant le Citra-Sorachi. Palais est léger et fort agréable surtout par grande chaleur. Un profil fruité l’emporte sur toute la ligne avec un citronné frais et agréable. Le tout est moyennement sec sur une petite note de levure. Epice en retrait avec une petite épaisseur du malt de blé. Plus une bière type session IPA qu’une blanche.

Bov (9509) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 22, 2014
from Erzbierschof - pours a cloudy orange beer with a little foam left; light yeasty and witha solid perfumy fruity aroma of grapefruit and citrus; medium-bodied and low carbonation; gently citric, acidic and decently bitter, very long aromatic fruity hoppy finish with more grapefruity reminiscence

Leighton (11034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Draft at Borefts 2012 - Bodegraven. Pours cloudy yellow with a fine, white cream head. Tangy wheat in the aroma with notes of straw and mild spices. Medium sweet flavor with pronounced wheat, salt, spices, some tropical fruits, especially mango. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Crisp finish with light dry dough, lemon essence, some mellow straw bitterness. Solid witbier.

Quack-Duck (7920) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2014
bouteille, achetée à la Bièrerie à Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Hazy golden yellow with a small, fluffy white head. Never before have I come across a bière blanche with such a beautuful hoppy aroma. Almost IPA-like fruity nose, tropical, slightly citrusy, extremely promising. Very light-bodied, shy malty background suporting the intensive hoppy flavours very well. Again, tropcial fruit, kiwi, gooseberry and a touch of lemon with a very timid fruity background. This is superb stuff!

tom10101 (2828) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Sampled at La Cave à Bulles during Mont Salève tasting (Paris Beer Week). Hazy yellow/golden white-ish with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy for a Witbier with some spices, citrus and floral notes. Taste is more floral than aroma along some spices, breadied malt, citrus and very light bitterness. Light/medium body. Moderate carbonation. Clean. Super drinkable and refreshing/quenching. I would drink this often if it was available in my area during summer. Good hybrid between an IPA and a Witbier.
