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.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2007
Bière de couleur jaune banane, voilée, presque sans mousse, sinon un léger cerne blanc collé aux rebords. Très peu pétillante. Une bière de piètre apparence. Beaucoup de levures et de céréales en nez. Après avoir reposée, présente des notes résineuses, d’encens, d’agrumes et d’herbes. La bouche est légère, peu pétillante. Le goût est dominé par les levures, plutôt unidimensionnelle. La saveur ne justifie pas de passez par-dessus une apparence inintéressante…

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2007
Pale golden in colour, white coloured head that was fairly quickly to dissipate, average lacing. The aroma is of bananas, lemons and some light spice. The flavour is of yeast, citrus, wheat, bananas and spice, some lemons. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes mid length, crisp, lightly spicy. An average non-overpowering Belgian White beer.

341ml bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/quebec/g target=blank>La Trappe a Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec for $1.99.
Purchased on July 6, 2007 and opened on August 9, 2007.

philippem (105) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 EN BOUTEILLE: Y’a un peu d’gomme balloune en arrière bouche, sans oublier la traditionnelle présence de coriandre et de citron (néanmoins, je dois préciser que ce citron est rachitique). Au visu, la couleur rappelle celle d’un Tang beaucoup trop dilué à l’eau ou encore d’un quelconque Kristalweizen (alors que cette bière est censément inspiré des classiques belges). Rien de mauvais, seulement, j’apprécie mes blanches dans l’extravagance.

EN FÛT: Cela dit, je dois avouer qu’en fût (disponible dans la plupart des bars et restaurants « de grande consommation »), cette bière affiche davantage de tonus, une saveur de meringue et de citron un peu plus explosive et surtout, il me semble, un caractère houblonné légérement plus affiché.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2007
Drank in a pint glass. Hazy bright golden poor with a thin white head. Aromas of bananas, lemon tarts and lightly spiced. Flavors are predominant of tropical fruits almost... Light bodied yet still somewhat creamy palate. Perfect bitterness for this type of beer and lightly sweetened.

TheJester (1874) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 341 mL bottle. Semi-transparent gold in colour with very little head. Smells of grass and spices; the usual wheat beer aroma with perhaps more grain than usual. The usual taste as well, although perhaps a little sweet. Mouthfeel is a little thin and grainy. Not bad, for a North American brewery.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle sample- Hazy yellow pour, thick foamy white cap. Cirtus and yeasty aroma, lemon zest, wheat and some honey. Tastes semi-sweet, lemony, citric acid, fresh leafy greens. A little too much carbonation to make it overly drinkable.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Cloudy dirty yellow with a rapidly receding head. Brisk carbonation. Wheaty with a touch of sweet spices, but a bit faint in the flavour department and thin in the body. Average for the style.

Light creamy yellow-white colour. Light white head. Very faint aroma. Watery wheaty favour. Very mellow. Light carbonation in the mouth.
