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.

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 (977) - 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.

Papillon (380) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3072) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2009
341 ml bottle from Trappe a Fromage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Bright, clear golden with a rim of white. Aroma: Light earthy coriander and lemony citrus, some nice hay/wheat, yeast, a pungent note..., sweet floral honey, floral perfume, a little biscuit, old apple juice. Palate: Medium body, fairly lively effervescence, a touch astringent. Flav.: Cardboard, lemons, coriander, light wet hay, a touch of tropical fruit esters; dry with basically no bitterness and a light banana bread finish.

Enjoyable other than the cardboard.

Pours hazy gold into a tumbler. Bright white head slowly recedes to skim surface leaving slight spottting. Wheat and lemon aromas. Dry and wheaty from front to back. Tart lemon and orange citrus finish.

RichardGretton (4296) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2009
Tap@Resto-Bistro Saint-James, Quebec City. Golden beer with an orange peel and dry aroma. The flavour is quite bitter fruity and off biitter. Overall a very average witbier.

A very nice wheat beer. Citrus nose. Taste is highly carbonated with orange, lemon. Taste is weaker than some wheat beers and that’s where this falls short.
