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.

341ml bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Taste and aroma are citrus, yeast and wheat. I really liked it.

Well, this says it isn’t available in a bottle, but this is what my bottle said, and the link above sure ain’t right. In any case, aroma is coriander, slight citrus and grain, some sweetness. Looks like a Hoegaarden, very pale yellow. Flavor is a match to the aroma. Had this back to back with the Unibroue Blanche de Chambly, and this just doesn’t compare well. Not bad. Touch prickly in the mouth. Probably better because drinking this in Montreal while watching Canadiens hockey.

Bière trouble couleur de paille, sur lie et coiffée d’un fin col blanc. Des arômes floraux de corriandre, de girofle et d’agrumes. Légèrement sucrée avec une pointe d’acidité. Bière mince et légère avec une fin moyennement arômatique.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2011
341 ml bottle, graciously gifted by my friend Tom - pours a cloudy light pale straw colour with a thin bleached-white head. Aroma has lemon and a bit of coriander, also some sulphur, which is acceptable in this style. Flavour is fairly straightforward, verging on bland. Blink-and-you’ll-miss-it finish. Body is fairly thin. Ok, but not an exceptional example of the style.

Daytona00 (132) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2011
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 (1716) - 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.
