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.

brekeriet (139) - - JAN 9, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 33cl bottle bought at brewery. Aroma: clove, tobacco, sour, fruit acid, lemon ice cream. Hazy appearance. Good balance in taste. Fizzy carbonation and a bit sour. Nice and interesting wit bier.

Bottle. Hazy yellow. Huge white head. Aroma: wheat, spices, citrus, some banana. Light body. Velvety texture. Sweetish taste with notes mentioned above. Low bitterness. Quite tasty yet too light for 6% ABV.

0.33l bottle. Malty aroma, light yeasty and spicy notes. Hazy yellow color, foamy white head. Malty taste, spicy notes, light sweet, extra light sour and bitter. Full body, slick to oily texture, soft carbonation and malty light sweet finish with spicy notes. Good.

DraftDodger (1895) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2018
Copenhagen 23/2 29018. 33 cl bottle from Ølhandleren in Hørning. Some Belgian mini River on the label with some Heraldic Stuff - Shield with stars and stuff. Pours hay golden yellow with dense bubbly white head. Settles as frothy and creamy 0,5 cm thick layer of foam occluding the surface of the beer. No lacing to speak of. Aroma is sweetish with a tart twist. Tart citrus, touch of sweet lemonade, orange and a little acidic. Medium - yet prickly carbonation and watery texture. Flavor is medium sweet followed by medium sour bitterness. Aftertaste is bit weaker and sourish. Touch of alcohol. Decent Witbier with a little punch and not too lemonadeish.

hohops (1200) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2018
Appearance- golden, clear, then a bit of sediment comes out and it goes murky, plenty of bubbles, a small white head. Aroma- banana, wheaty malt, cereal, spicy hints, orange peel, fruity notes. Taste- wheaty malt, peppery spiciness, hint of banana, creamy full mouthfeel, slightly chewy finish. Very good.
