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.

I had a bottle of this in some place in Montreal where they took me to try poutine. Poutine is an excellent way for a french fry to go, by the way. It had the right sharp spicey nose. Light spicey corriander and lots of yeast. Lively on the tongue. Strong enough to accompany the poutine.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Draught pint at an unknown Café on Rue Ontario in Montréal
Hazy clouds with stark white cumulonimbus head, strikingly beautiful. The nose if rich in sugar, white grapes, rich decocted malts and a hallertaur crispy note. The flavor is plenty balanced with tangy yeast notes and their creamy rich partners in crime. Finishes earthy, a little starchy but I found this to be very tasty.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
Bottle. Golden color and no head. Wheat aroma. Taste of wheat and lightly spicy. Lively carbonation, noy a bad beer. Bière de couleur doré avec aucun collet. Odeur de blé. Au goût, elle est un peu épicé et goût de blé. Co2 élevé, pas une mauvaise bière, elle manque un peu d’originalité et de goût.

Medium gold in colour with a fair amount of carbonation. The aromas are fairly muted, but there are traces of yeast, citrus and wheat. The flavor component is way more substantial. There is a good balance between the wheat, yeast, citrus, bubblegum, and spice elements. I also noticed a touch of roasted sesame on the finish. A solid wit, and perhaps a bit under-rated.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2005
Cloudy pale yellow beer with a thin creamy white head. Citrusy, coriander aroma, a touch of bubble gum and spicy yeastiness. There is a bit of wheaty aroma as well. Nice creamy mouthfeel, citrus and coriander are prominent with a wheaty finish. Refreshing beer.

[on tap at Ouzeri] Dark yellow that’s hazy and not cloudy with a medium thick head that lasts for a very long time and forms lace on the sides of the glass. The aroma is not too strong but it’s lemony citrus with a little corriander and very faint clove and hop notes. Interestingly, the clove comes out right away in the flavour, followed by sourness from the wheat malt and then some banana and malt sweetness at the end. Also detected a corn flavour. This beer was kind of neat how the sweetness and flavours lingered a bit at the end. No bitterness. Moderate carbonation (not enough for this type of beer) and light body, but I would have liked it to be lighter.
