COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Tessic (917) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
This wheat poured a cloudy light yellow colour with a fast dissipating head. Scents include orange citrus, eggs, yeast and light hop. First swig was quite watery with flavours of orange citrus and light hope. Quite refreshing.

hellonearth (64) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Arômes de blé et de banane. D’un jaune bien voilé avec un petit col mousseux. Un goût frais, franc et acide teinté de cannelle, d’agrumes. Un classique québécois toujours agréable.
