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.

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 (2199) - 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 (8069) - 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.

IPALover (63) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Hope this is the same beer as the label is now very different. Its white and features a horses head and says "La Blanche Cheval Blanc". This is a nicely made belgian white style which is sweet and fruity. The tastes emphasizes the wheat but clearly has malted barley as well. Overall the taste is sweet (no real hop character) and is light and refreshing. Clarity is cloudy.

Fukito (921) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUN 10, 2006
Bottle - June 2006 Pours a turbid yellow color with a medium to small white head. Aroma is very citric, with some yeastyness. Taste is citric, acidic, somewhat watery and thin, almost unspiced, medium carbonatation and refreshing, but lacks something. Very light palate and no aftertaste. Bland, too neutral. Maybe it doesn´t travels well, maybe the couple of weeks I lef it in the fridge affected the taste.
