COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blanche des Honnelles (1991) was originally very localised, and has since expanded beyond the boundries of the greater and lesser Honnelle rivers, from which it takes it's name. The Blanche des Honnelles leaves the beaten path somewhat. It has an amber colour which is after all the traditional appearance of the Blanches. It is also stronger (6%) than the Blanches that we know. Its taste is surprising and is not comparable to the brews with the same name that are now on the market. If the bouquet is subdued its first flavour is a stark dry sharpness against a pepper background. There is no acidity in this Blanche that is made with three cereals (barley, wheat, oats). It has a stimulating taste, leaving a subdued but refreshing final impression. Lots of character and curious.

SylvainCFC (195) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2017
Robe ambrée, limpide avant versement de la fin de bouteille (devient orange sombre et opaque). Mousse blanche bien calibrée très crémeuse, tenue moyenne. Nez légèrement sûr (froment), sur le grain, très doux (caramel léger). Bouche épaisse, soyeuse, moelleuse. Douceur de miel, légère sucrosité, touche d’acidité propre au style, légère note poivrée. Finale plus houblonnée (léger), herbeuse, longueur moyenne. Corpulence moyenne à épaisse, carbonatation faible à moyenne. Blanche très complexe, sans excès épicé, gourmande, mais identifiable au style.

Myonlyvice (282) - DENMARK - MAR 26, 2017
Sample. Hazy light golden with a soapy head. Aroma of caramel, pine and citrus. Taste is sweet and slightly sour and somewhat spicy. Medium mouthfeel. By some distance the best wheatbeer i have tasted so far.

A bottle at the Cafe Bastille near Taipower Building. Aroma: sour citrus. Appearance: hazy, golden amber with 1-2mm. white lacing. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, medium carbonation, long, sweet and fruity finish. Taste: predominantly sweet, but well-balanced with a sour citrus element. Tasty.

kaserov (605) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2017
Color amarillo pálido, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de cuatro dedos de grosor (textura jabonosa, buena retención). Carbonatación a tope. Textura ligeramente efervescente en boca. Aroma típico de Witbier: muy frutal (no plátano, en este caso, más bien naranja), con presencia de la levadura y especias (cilantro). En boca muy sutil y sabrosa: naranja, un toque a pan, levadura, especias... Ni dulce, ni ácida, ni amarga. Final muy ligeramente seco y de mucho frescor. Poco regusto y postgusto. Rica.

JuanCC (95) - Valencia, SPAIN - MAR 13, 2017
Vierte en amarillo pálido ligeramente turbio con abundante espuma. Notable carbonatación, con multitud de pequeños hilos de burbujas incluso bastante tiempo después de servirla, lo que le da un aspecto achampañado. Intensidad media-alta en nariz con agradables notas a manzana amarilla un poco verde, que evolucionan a notas de sidra. El dulzor ya se adivina en nariz. En Boca manda el dulce y la manzana. No es para nada maltosa (ni en boca ni en nariz). De cuerpo medio-ligero emboca, es de textura frizante y de vino espumoso, lo que resulta consistente con el aspecto achampañado que comentaba antes. La persistencia es notable con un final dulce que, aunque es suave, llega a acumularse algo más de lo deseable, pudiendo resultar algo empalagosa para algunos paladares (especialmente los acostumbrados a cervezas lupuladas y amargas). Una cerveza sabrosa y deliciosa, aunque menos refrescante de lo que esperaba en una wit.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Surprisingly, clear (well settled = no wheat/yeast floaties). Malty; bready malts. Spicy (coriander) and yeasty. Fruity (citrus orange). Sweet malty fruity throughout. Liked this. Nice Witbier. (2008)

Bottle from Brugge. Pours golden with a small cream head. Nose is quite wheaty and citrus. Taste is very creamy in the mouth, wheaty but also quite fruity.

Mortlach (2330) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle @Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome). Dorata scarica, leggermente torbida, schiuma bianca media. Al naso malto, cereali, scorza di limone, frutta candita. In bocca è mediamente dolce, con note di malto e sentori di limone, fresca, con finale amaro acidulo. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-leggera. Interessante.
