Alengrin (4329) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
Van Honsebrouck has always faithfully followed the marketing trends, and this misty yellow blonde witbier with creamy, lacing snow-white head is no deviation from that policy. Wheaty sourishness, the all-present coriander, dried citrus peel and underlying bready maltiness make this another Hoegaarden clone, but the spiciness and yeastiness do reveal something more artisanal. Still: uninspired, as usually with this brewery, and too stereotypical to compete with the ’real thing’ - no matter how industrial the latter may be.

Bozo_skeleton (956) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 9, 2013
Blanche a la carbo tres active, cela donne lieu a un tres beau collet qui persiste. Arôme citronné, coriandre. Saveurs font ressortir les epices et une legere amertume au finish. Blanche classique

ruigo (2102) - PORTUGAL - SEP 2, 2013
Shared a 75cl bottle sold as Vieux Bruges Blanche, from the Bio section of Auchan (Luxembourg). Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Citric, coriander and yeast in the aroma. Medium carbonation and medium body. Flavour start bitter but quickly ends quite dry and astringent. Nothing special.

erickok (5169) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle sold as Vieux Bruges Blanche. Light yellow, almost green bodywith small wwhite lace. Citric, aspartame, pilsner yeast and quite a lot of it. Quite active carbonation, dull light bitterness in taste. Dry and short ending. A generic white beer really. Not a big fan of the style and this isn’t even a niceone . (75cl bottle from Carrefour in Tours)

Bottle at Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium august 2011. Bottle from 2002, last brewed 2002. Pale, hazy and a lot of yeast. Fruity aroma, a bit vinegar and malty. Malty bad taste.

rlgk (17292) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle at Kulminator, Antwerp. This bottle might have been from 2002, but I am not sure. Hazy yellow beer with a small head. Malty aroma, toffee and yeast. Malty bready flavor, a boit thin, guess most of the hops and spices have been lost over the years. Still a decent beer, but more interesting to try, than actually good.

jaghana (5371) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 12, 2011
Bottle 75cl @auchan. A claudy yellow beer with medium head. Nose is very lemony. Aroma is low malty, spicy, bit sweet, very agrume like (natural ?). Not really a greate wheat beer, no real wheat malt presence, boring.
