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.

Rating from 2006. From a bottle. The body was light cloudy yellow with a white head. The aorma had lemons and flowers with a hint of clove. The taste was orange peels with a little clove. There was also some red licorice and was a little bland over all.

SFLpunk (134) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 14, 2009
341mL brown glass twist-top bottle. No date. From Super Marché Rahman in Montreal. Appearance: Cloudy yellow brown, like lemonade with a splash of iced tea. Almost no head, but constant tiny white bubbles. Nose: Simple and focused orange peel and light spice notes (yeast). Palate: Medium bodied and sharp with some acid (citric). Flavors or lemon, sour orange and dried yeast. Moderately long and surprisingly nice finish. Notes: A very focused attempt. Simple and solid. Would be killer with some spicy Thai or Vietnamese food.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle 05.30.09. Pours cloudy yellow gold, white head. Aroma is spicy, funky, and musty. Flavor is coriander, citrus, sausage. I’m usually not a big fan of witbiers, but this one I like.

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2009
Acheté au métro en format de 341ml et dégusté dans un verre de blanche de chambly. Apparence blonde ambré au reflet de caramel doré pâle légèrement trouble avec une mousse moyenne. Arômes de blé, citron, coriande et une touche de clou de giroffe. Goût d’agrumes poivré, de citron, de blé, orge et levure. Une bonne densité et rondeur en bouche. Une boisson rafraîchissante et moyennement complexe pour ce style de bière.

341mL from a mixed sixer I got at a little Dep in Hull while in Ottawa for the OUA champ swim meet. Pours your standard hazy goldish white with a small white head. Aroma is just great, I love the unique yeast character of this brewery. Flavour is a really nice blend of barley and wheat malts with a watery feel to it that actually works as it helps lay out the dry yeasty awesomeness. For a style I’m not in love with this beer really impressed me and was so damn refreshing after walking through to Quebec and back.

(341 ml. bottle with white horse’s head on the label) hazy light gold with small white head. Citrus/yeast aroma. Flavor is wheat, yeast, hint of citrus.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
Bouteille de 341 ml. La bière se présente avec une robe paille-voilée et une mousse fugace. Au nez on découvre des arômes de blé, de coriandre, de citron, de levure, de clou de girofle et d’épices. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen et la texture est crèmeuse. Les flaveurs sont la levure, la coriandre, le blé et le clou de girofle. La finale est subtilement épicée et douce

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2008
Pours a slightly cloudy dull wheat colour with a short-lived head and a slight witbier aroma highlighted by cloves. Tastes like a typical wit, good spicing, lightly warming finish. Really chewy body and good carbonation, shame about the head. A good effort, definitely sessionable.

robinvboyer (2994) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2008
good hazy golden color. pretty small white head. Aroma is a touch yeasty, with some subtle citrus notes, and a little spice. Flavour has a nice citrus note off the bat, and finiishes with a nice hop note. Mouthfeel is nice and balanced and full. This is a great summer beer, crisp, and quenching, not HUGE on any particular flavour just a solid wit.

Bière blanche à la robe paille possédant une densité moyenne. Très douce, elle présente un goût d’orge, de blé, de bananes et d’agrumes. Pas mauvaise du tout. Elle fait partie de mes préférées en matière de bières dans la tradition des blanches belges.
