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.

Along with blanche de Namur, this is the best wit I have tried yet. Ligh amber, honey coloured beer with a cream coloured heat, not big but resistant. Beautiful spicy, bready aroma with citrous notes. Complex flavour profile,, sweet orange peel, coriander and a symphony of other spices coming through in the background and finish. These blend wonderfully with a slight lactic character, bitter onrantd and a light hop bitterness. Some honey notes in there as well. Bery soft voloptous mouthfeel and finish.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2010 10 years ago whe taste this beer a first time @ the brewery self. Fieuw times re-tasted. Bottle, 33 cl. (@ home bought by Willems) And 75 cl. Vanden Bussche. For me possibly, the best wit I have tried yet. Light amber color, with a creamy white head. Aroma lovely spicy, with citrus, yeasty. Medium to full body. Taste is nice but complex light sweet, coriander and a pallet of other spices. Very good character, bitter and a light hop bitterness. This is heaven: what a great whitebeer !
