Slight clove and banana in the nose, yeasty, dry finish. Not my favorite style or Unibroue product for that matter.

a bit disappointing. It's a good beer but hardly worthy of Unibroue. It doesn't have the coriander and orange peel distinctiveness I like in a witbier. It's drinkable but doesn't set itself apart.

Signiture Unibroue spicy and yeasty aroma. Pours a pale yellow, cloudy, half-decent head. Surprising bland. More similar to a white wine than a beer. Carbonated palate and a dry finish. After trying the modern masterpieces such as Maudite from Unibroue, I have to say this is quite disappointing.

A nice Wit beer. The lemon, floral aroma enhances the flavor of this pale hazy beer.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2003
I have fcome to accept the bleach blonde appearance typical of this style and appreciate it, to some degree. The abundant head is of a shaving cream consistency and forms mountains and recesses. Divinely refreshint twinkling of pine in the nose. Ahhh! Simple pleasures. The flavor; however, is quotidian. Light pinyness with a carbonated water "Talking Rain" mouthfeel. The fizzyness abates quickly leaving a rather insipid brew. Too bad.

This was a little disappointing. The beer pours a hazy amber. There is lots of carbonation and a light yellowish tan head forms. The beer certainly has a spritzy and citrusy taste to it. It reminded me of a less powerful La Fin Du Monde. Finishes somewhat dry. Worth trying but nothing I go to any lengths to find.

Crit (3306) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
I first had this at a festival, after an overly sweet brown ale so it was quite puckery. Light citrus nose.Tart citrus and light malt flavor.

While it’s not QUITE as good as Celis White, Blanche de Chambly is still a world-class example of its style. It has a fresh, citrusy/spicey aroma, pours a hazy lemon-yelow colour with a nice head, and has a perfect balance of fruit, spice and mild hops in the flavour.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2002
This one I could smell from across the room after popping open the cap. The aroma oozed of something crisp, floral, lemony and fresh. The head was fairly thick as most Unibroue brews are taking up a nice chunk of my glass and leaving a very small amount of lacing on my glass. The Blanche de Chambly poured a cloudy lemony yellow color which gave way to a murky yellowish gold filled with thousands of carbonated bubbles when put up to the light. The taste is very non-specific upon first sip...a lot of carbonation, some spiceyness in the aftertaste...then BAM...dryness...a long spicey dryness...and only then can you really taste the hops hidden in this one..i smelled em in the aroma, but damned if i didnt find em til they went down. A pleasant offering for a holiday, but fairly average i would say.

Has a lite yellow cloudy color and a lemon smell. Taste is light, malty, lemony and finishes crisp with little bitterness. Overall not bad, but not the best. I like other offerings from this brewery.
