Light yellow. Lemons and oranges in the nose. Spices and pine on the tongue. Refreshing drink, and I'll call it crisp even though it's cliche.

This one looked fancy with the foil on the top, so i was like, "gee it has to be good." i'm such a dumb-ass sometimes. anyways... just like with the Don De Dieu, it totally looks like Miller, or some American Crappi Beer like that. It tasted watery with some fruity tinge (pear?) to it. if i wanted that, i'd drink the juice out of a can of Del Monte Fruit Cup...that'd be tastier. The picture on the label shows this castle of some sort with tiny people walking around outside it. my guess is that Blance de Chambly is the only beer served inside and those people have left the castle in search of something better.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Color is a golden pale yellow, slightly hazy, with a tight bubbly head of frothy foam thats bumpy and about three fingers high. Smell is lemony/orange with a bit of spicyness to it, its quite the sniffer, very strong. Taste is more of the same, lemony/orange sweet with a slight spicyness with a hint of yeast and wheat grain. Its got a light spritzer wine feel and hold thats very citrusy and slightly drying with a dry spiceness. Its a good belgian style wheat that resembles some triples, it's mostly smooth and slightly sweet and tart with a good citrusy kick.

A bit watery on finish. Nice aroma but an ordinary taste. Nothing realy exceptional but quite pleasant.

PorterPounder (6299) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Very light golden appearance with a fizzy quickly dissipating thin white head. The aroma is very faint - detect some banana notes but barely. Clean crisp flavor, but does not compare to true Belgian Wits. Slight banana flavor. Very smooth mouthfeel - goes down well - just nothing really in here to get excited about.

Very light appearance with a white head, that quickly diminished. Orange aroma with some citrus notes. Very refreshing and crisp.

deprogram (115) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2003
0.75 l bottle Foams whitely from the bottle, settles down to an utterly entrancing pale, wheat colored liquid with a lacing of tiny bubbles. Delicate on the tongue, lightly scented, floral and refined. Not bad, I say :]

It's a nice smooth Belgian white that's never overpowering. Another winner from Unibroue.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Hazy light gold with a large poofy foamy white head. Lots and lots of bubbles make their way to the top to keep a nice head. Dominant wheat malt and spice aroma at first, followed by an orangy citrus. I'm not all that familiar with spices use in Belgian styles but I'm just guessing it's coriander. It's very pleasant and attractive. Dry wheat and light, very light, clove spice flavors with a dry finish and fairly clean aftertaste. Not quite as complex as I'd hoped. Very highly carbonated and light bodied as a wit should be, as well as having a dry but non astringent m/f. Not quite as spicey or complex as some Belgian style Wits, but very well made and drinkable summer session beer nonetheless.

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2003
This particular brew poured a large white foamy head with fine-large bubbles that quickly dissolved. There was very little lacing observed on the sides of my glass. There was a slight spicy aroma to this brew. The body was pale yellow. The taste was smooth, thin and watery. In my opinion this Belgian White lacked character as there was nothing special about it.
