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.

Usual yeast Cheval Blanc flavor which is a good thing. A bit of lemon in this nice white colored brew. Very refreshing, not too bad for a style (Belgian White) that seems to go out of favour with brewer...

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2003
A touch citrusy and a bit dry and crisp. Very nice, although it was fizzier than I might have liked.

CapFlu (4358) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a thin, quick dissipating, white head and a cloudy lemon-meringue body. Yeast nose with slight lemon. Lemony flavour with a bitter finish. Nice.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2003
hazy yellow, foamy white head. aroma of lemon zest and yeast. ditto for the flavour with a mild bitter finish. not bad, but a straight forward wit.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 23, 2003
Cloudy amber, minimal head. Very nice, pleasant aroma, nice soft light Belgian wit. The flavour got some peanuts some fresh wheat. Nicely done, I like it.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2003
Cloudy light yellow below a white head. Nose is yeasty and citrusy. The body is orangey with light hops poking through. A touch of citrus carries through into the drying finish. Not one of the best of this style.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2003 Remind me a little of Unibroue BLanche de chambly, but not as good, not very flavored. The disgusting Cheval blanc yeast is ruining it all...

GregClow (2812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2002
My first taste of this beer was on tap on a mild summer night in Montreal, and it was lovely. Out of the bottles that I brought back from Quebec, it’s not quite as good, but still a pleasant summer brew with the classic carucao and coriander flavours.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2002
The ’dirty’ cheval blanc yeast distracts this otherwise fine beer. Orange carucao and coriander. Considering the Wit is my favorite style, this was a disapointing beer.
