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.

New label design. White beer with a pleasant banana clove aroma. Very light taste of bananas and malts....lemon cut in through the end. Pleasant and refreshing, which is what a blanche should be..

12oz bottle acquired in trade with beanmedic (thanks!). Poured a lighter and hazy yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of corriander, lemons and yeast. Tastes of lemons, lighter spices, bananas, and wheat. Thinner but somewhat lively body that leaves on a crisp note.

Sammy (9563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2004
probably better on tap, however a fresh bottle is reviewed here. Much in carbonation and while not watery, was thin and little creamy. Tasted the lime citrus and some spice

Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Keg at The Henry House, Halifax. It pours lightly hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is soft, toasty grain, wheat, coriander, white bread, cereal and straw. The taste is crisp, bitter, grassy, herbal, straw, minerals, wheat, minerals, earth and light lactic notes with a lingering dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Well-rounded. Not a whole lot to it really, but drinkable enough.

Cloudy pale yellow beer with a thin creamy white head. Citrusy, coriander aroma, a touch of bubble gum and spicy yeastiness. There is a bit of wheaty aroma as well. Nice creamy mouthfeel, citrus and coriander are prominent with a wheaty finish. Refreshing beer.
