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.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2005
well i expected a witbier but this aint one. whatever it is it’s nice. hazy orange with lots and lots of broken teeth and a head that sticks all the way. in the smelll i got orange, banana, baked apple, peach, bubblegum and im sure more imaginative noses would come up with a lot more. suffice it to say it is a veritable fruit salad on the nose. taste is round, fruity and sweet, fluffy, but then quenchingly acidic. some interesting heavy trappisty fruit - fat plums, pears, baked apple, chewy and tasty.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2006
From bottle, poured at the 2006 Pizza Port 12 Hour Belgian Beer Party courtesy of a generous ratebeerian. Creamy, bizarre greenish-gold colored pour with a full, white head. Very yeasty aromas of lemon spiced tea, cream, dried oregano, and a slightly sour sugar encrusted bread. Almost creamy mouthfeel, with an acceptable level of complexity on the tongue. The light lemony citrus flavors shine through with a bit of yeasty banana cream pie. A touch watery and light on the palate, but the balance between fruits and yeasty spice is elegant.

Pours hazy orange yellow with tons of bubbly offwhite head. Aroma very light dough and lemon. Flavor extremely doughy with slight citric undertone. Too yeasty for my liking.
