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.

Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella kuohkealla vaahdolla. Tuoksu on hyvin mausteinen ja viljainen, taustalla on sitruksisuutta ja hiivaisuutta. Maku on vhvan sitruksinen ja mausteinen, alla on viljaa ja hiven happamuutta. Suutuntuma on tyylille yllättävänkin kuiva, raikas ja happaman puoleinen. Laadukas, raikas ja hyvin tunnistettava sekä yllättävän kuiva witbier, joka erottuu edukseen.

SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a medium sized with head with good retention and lace. Mild nose with flowers, dough, light perfume, candied lemon. Flavour has mould, wood, earth, chalk, herbs. Medium body, some sweetness, low bitterness, fine soft carbonation, mild acidity. Fairly sweet and earthy, strange wit.

cagou007 (1169) - FRANCE - JAN 16, 2016
Pours hazy pale amber with medium white head. Aromas of wheat malt, spices (clove, pepper) and citrus. Average carbonation, medium body. Long citrusy and spucy aftertaste. Quite nice wheat beer!

McDef85 (42) - ITALY - JAN 11, 2016
Blanche più corposa del solito. Aroma erbaceo, speziato, retrogusto lievemente amaro (liquirizia). Meno acquosa delle altre blanche, complesse sensazioni boccali.

zooka (3) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 11, 2016 does not count
Une blanche avec une structure plus prononcée qu’une blanche basique , couleur ambrée. Très bonne!

mikske79 (1668) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2015
Een enorm lekker en fruitige geur. En een mooie schruimkraag. De smaak is lekker fris met een toets van sinaas. Witbier is normaal niet men favoriet, maar dit is een goeike

Erzengel (8763) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2015
*Old rating. Best before 30/10/2012. Great intense sourish beer. Great floral, yeast, spices. Round and fresh. Great stuff.

beeebon (450) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Pours a pale copper colour with big white head which soon goes. Aroma of peanuts, yeast, spice. Taste is quite subdued, medium sweet and light but lightly bitter. Taste doesn’t linger. Might be more enjoyable on a warm summer’s day but not bad!
