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.

Pours a hazy yellowwith a medium white head. A very fresh lemony fruity aroma. The flavour is roun, fruity and viniuos, and it has a very full mouth feel . A really refreshing and good beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a small milky-creamy head. Aroma has loads of fruits, grapefruit, oranges, banana, lemons and a load of wheat as well. Very full mouthfeel with a champagne feel to it. Flavour is extremely nice. Oranges abound again, some coriander and a general dryness pervading through. Really a good example of the style!

Brasserie de Rocs Blanche Double

4/27/2007: Pours a golden color. It is pretty clear (not hazy, cloudy, or murky), but there are some floating chunks in it. It has a huge rocky white head. The aroma is wheat malt and has some subtle sweetness to it. The flavor is light citrus, delicately spicy, and has a hint of alcohol. The body is medium-light. The beer is light and slightly efferevescent on the palate. This is a pretty good Witbier overall, but nothing out of the ordinary...

750 mL bottle; $4.99+tax (on sale) from Noonan’s in Hamilton, Ohio. 6% Alc/Vol. Best before end 2007 (4B12).

3.8
omhper (25351) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2007
Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. With it’s cloudy golden colour and, small airy head it doesn’t look very appetizing, but looks can deceive. There’s a powerful orange peel aroma. It’s sweet with solid, rounded mouthfeel and evident notes of coriander and seville orange. It’s full flavoured, and though rather sweet it steers well clear of becoming sticky, offering a combination of the drinkability and refreshment of a witbier and the complexity and flavour depth of a strong Belgian golden ale. Finsishes soothing almost completely without biterness.
