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.

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.

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 (1002) - 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 (3620) - 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.

onomatopee (34) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2008
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.

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 (2544) - 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.
No best before date.
