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.

341 bottle. Cloudy color. Medium head that last for a while. Pleasant aroma and very good taste. Not complicated beer, very simple. I found no major default in this beer. Very good white.

(bottle) clear pale yellow with small white head; aroma bread and spices; balanced but simple flavour, not bad but not exceptional either

DeanF (1628) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 18, 2010
Bright foggy yellow body with some head on top. Faint aroma of wheat detergent and horse hair. Taste is faint watery wit-bier stuff. Not bad, not interesting either. Hard to find anything that stands out about this brew.

guil0000 (228) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
Poors a hazy beautiful golden color. with a white head. Aroma of orange peel with some wheat and hay. Some lemon and a dry finish. No noticable bitterness. Pretty good

SlovakSniper (2810) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
La robe est trouble et jaunâtre. La mousse se retire rapidement. Les arômes sont délicats et révèlent du blé, des épices mélangées et une pointe citrique. En bouche, la texture est douce et légère au travers d’une effervescence appropriée. La finale est fraîche et se fait sur des notes légèrement acidulées. En résumé, correct.

Atheist_Peace (884) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2010
660ml bottle. Pours bright clear yellow with a white pillowy head that leaves a slight lace. Yeast and banana on the nose. Uncomplicated. Marginally better in the mouth with a nice crisp citrus finish.

Spab (2126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2010
341 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy straw tellow with smallish white head. Decent banana and coriander aroma, with a bit of citrus. Banana, clove and coriander and a slight citrus in the flavour. Slight bitterness in finish. Decent wit.

Papillon (363) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2009
341 mL Bottle sampled Dec 24, 2009. Murky pale straw body with a soapy-bubbly white head. Aroma of yeast, ginger, orange peel, and innuendos of earth and cloves. Fruity-wheat flavor with a strong expression of cloves in the aftertaste. There is a subtle expression of bubblegum in the finish. Nice light bubbly feel in the mouth. Yeah, I’ll ride this horse again on a breezy sunny summer afternoon.
