A finely-bubbled beer made from wheat and barley. Like the traditional Belgian "White" it is refreshing, light and slightly fruity. Bottle refermentation imparts a yeast enriched flavor.

Not to be confused with the separate Blanche made by the brewpub Cheval Blanc.

New bottles do not feature "de blé" anymore, but simply La Blanche and Cheval Blanc.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Veiled straw color a good dose of activity. White 1.5 finger head, lasting for around 7 minutes, with average legs. Zesty and floral aromas. Flavors of coriander, lemon, slight corn, sweet smoky grains, floral and herbal spices. Some syrupy sweetness and faint sharpness. Straw and woodsy feel. Slick light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Faint and short finish, ending with a basic floral and coriander feel. Overall an average craft having weak flavors and moderate freshness that is slightly flat. Feels a little adjunct and missing some personality.

Franckg (912) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
Robe dorée avec un mince col de mousse blanc moyennement dense. Arômes de levures, pain, clou de girofle, citron , bananes. Léger sucre résiduel. En bouche, beaucoup de levures, pain blanc, fines herbes, clou de girofle. Légèrement fruitée, orange, banane, citron. Trés légère en bouche malgré une texture tout de même soyeuse. Une bonne blanche désaltérante.

Scopey (11518) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Keg at The Henry House, Halifax. It pours lightly hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is soft, toasty grain, wheat, coriander, white bread, cereal and straw. The taste is crisp, bitter, grassy, herbal, straw, minerals, wheat, minerals, earth and light lactic notes with a lingering dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Well-rounded. Not a whole lot to it really, but drinkable enough.

Una Blanche di buon livello. Colore giallo paglierino con sottile schiuma. Bene l’aroma speziato. Molto interessante la bevuta, con note di banana, spezie, coriandolo. Molto beverina.

RickTheRick (875) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Visuellement, la bière est blanchâtre, très trouble et surmontée d’une mousse blanche consistante. La levure racée dégage des phénols épicés, surtout poivrés. Le blé et l’écorce d’orange sont des éléments bien en évidence également. En bouche, je dirais tout simplement "what you smell is what you taste". La carbonatation vigoureuse en fait une bière très rafraîchissante, mais sans artifices.

Bottle version. Pretty classic wheat character, mostly lemony banana bread, a bit simple and on the light side if anything.

tom10101 (4898) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
On tap (4 oz) @ L’Hermite.

Appearance: Clear pale yellow/golden with a small white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Light cloves/spiciness, hints of citrus, banana notes and mild hay.

Taste: Mild clove/coriander with a decent malt backbone, light acidity and hints of orange.

Palate: Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Mild cloves finish.

Overall: Average Wit. The spices aren’t cloying, which is good, but the beer is rather bland even for a Wit.

gramity (1586) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Pale golden in colour, white coloured head that was fairly quickly to dissipate, average lacing. The aroma is of bananas, lemons and some light spice. The flavour is of yeast, citrus, wheat, bananas and spice, some lemons. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes mid length, crisp, lightly spicy.
