Bouteille de 341 ml. Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur paille trouble ainsi qu’un col de mousse modeste. Au nez on découvre des arômes de banane, de citron et de levure. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de fruits jaunes, de banane, de citron et de blé.
Hazy blond beer with a good head. Strong wheat aroma. Pretty simple beer but it does well in the wheat beer category. Daytona00 (160) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle 341 ml - Cloudy yellow color. Intriging aroma. Citrus note at the finish. I would probably not drink a couple of this beer in a row. One is enough. Not as good as the big canons a la Blanche de Chambly but not that bad. Different. Forcina (52) - Bellinzona, Rome, Brussels, SWITZERLAND - SEP 13, 2010
Golden apppearence, good and well balanced aroma. Citrus, banana and pomegranate. Too acid for me. sseb69 (1909) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2010
Bouteille 341 ml. 5%. Couleur jaune pâle. Arôme d’agrumes et bananes. En bouche, fraîche, notes de levures et agrumes. Correct DuffMan (10435) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a brief white head. Sweet grainy aroma with a faintly odd chemical accent. Same on the palate-- none of the expected citrus and spice that one looks for in a hefe. Poor.

341 ml bottle from Trappe a Fromage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2009
App.: Hazy deep golden with a smallish white froth.
Aroma: Some typical wheat beer notes of wheat/hay, a touch of esters, a touch of citrus, all intertwined with an unpleasant organic acid/infected character.
Palate: Medium-ish body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Similar to the nose, there are some nice wheat beer flavours marred by signs of infection; dry with an acrid bitterness and a touch of tang.
Has problems and promise. To be re-rated.
Beautifully cloudy. Light gold color with a orange tint. Surprisingly small head with a correspondingly light lace.
Strong wheat aroma. Lots of bread.
Wheaty without the citrus tendency. relatively thin body for the style. Rather direct, but short-lived, aftertaste. Overall, a predictable wheat beer. UM02 (366) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Wheat beer seems to be one of the German styles that is not often done well in North America. Sometimes the beers are decent in of themselves but don’t really taste like German wheat beers. The Blanche de Laval is a decent effort at a wheat beer. Certainly there are many superior Weizens in Germany (and a much smaller number of superior ones in North America) but this is not bad. Given that the German Weizens are only available at the SAQ at incredibly jacked up prices I might buy this occasionally. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2009
A hazy weizen with a thick white head. Rather sweet chemical aroma with light citrus. In mouhth, a North American wheat beer with light banana and lemon. Boring. Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2009
Bottle - 341ml. Nice cloudy golden body with average carbonation and a tin white bubbly head. Its malty/hoppy aroma carries citrusy and yeasty hints, but some chemical/soapy ones as well. Taste is misbalanced and leaves a harsh, dry, chemical aftertaste. This doesn’t pass the test.
