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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2008 Cloudy golden body with a medium off-white head. Overpowering spicy character with cloves, coriander, white pepper and various powder spices flavour. Very malty body full of cereals with a biscuit/flour taste and texture. Fruity flavour is mainly orange peels and maybe some peach. Typical belgian lively carbonation. Short and crisp finish with limited bitterness and no tartness. Far from a light lemony witbier, I find it to be saison-ish. An unusual and surprising beer that breaks the witbier mold like I break most of my promises.

Tap. A very easy drinkable belgian beer! Nice citrus/hoppy finish. Nice medium thick head. Yet another hit by ADR.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Thanks to my Florida Secret Santa for this one! Deep gold with a hint of copper, nice head fades slowly. Aroma of orange, coriander, dry pepper. Flavor starts of with sweet orange marmalade, then goes abruptly dry with coriander and a good dose of a peppery finish. Perhaps a hop bitterness in the finish as well. Not bad, definitely not a traditional wit.

Eructoblaster (4206) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle. Nice cloudy blond/orange body with low carbonation and a decent white foamy head. Relatively complex malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty, citrusy, and spicy notes. Well balanced malty taste that carries yeasty, coriander, and hoppy hints. Ends with a long bittersweet finish. Very good!

bottle-thanks to vyvvy for sharing this fine and unique brew. cloudy orange with a small spritzy white head. funky nose-smells like lots of brettanomices yeast(funk, foot odor). some light citrus in there under all the funk. nice funky flavors which say more saison than Wit. Doesnt have the tartness of a saison so thats the main difference. pretty complex, but definately not a wit i could drink all the time. this thing has a very round body which was fuller than most of the style. cool!

750. You can’t really ask for a nicer-looking beer. Pours deep hazy copper with a towering platinum blonde head of suds and mousse that falls to whipped-egg-white stalgmites but it takes a while. Rich funky green apples and cherries on the nose. No visible carb. Subdued attack; low-medium body, light carb, subtle flavors. Green apples and pears are there, and they carry through the mid-palate, along with some honey and a little bit of grass. This is a soft, lovely, refreshing wit. Great stuff. Starting to wonder whether I have a crush on Rocs or something.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Bottle. Good crisp aroma and decent appearance with a head that thined a little. Flavor is good. Well balanced and nice belgian yeast flavored. Decently smooth.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2006
(07.13.06) One pint 9.4 oz green bottle from Liquorama. 6.8% ABV. Best by 05.08.08. Spicy clove aroma. Poured cloudy dark orange with large white head. No discernable carbonation. Medium-bodied ale that starts dry with light malt/spicy (clove) fruity flavors. Some tartness noted. Finished dry and clean with slight bitterness. Excellent wheat beer with delicate flavor.

3.7
jazz88 (2680) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Bottle. An orange yellow color with a white head. The aroma is filled with orange peel, clove, and lemon zest. A nice dry citrus flavor. Rating from December 2005 notes.

3.6
Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Clear golden color with off white head. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast, spice and some wheat. Flavor is on the sweet side initially with wheat and honey. About midway some coriander and cinnamon enter. Near the finish a sour note arises before the flavor fades into the aftertaste where all flavors re-appear and converge and slowly fade away.
