COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What nobler distinction could there be for this tasty wheat beer with its pleasant fruity flavour and rich foam than to bear the name of one our most illustrious forebears ? Blanche de Brabant, who lived in the 12th century, belonged to the French royal dynasty. Left to govern the country during the Seventh Crusade, and concerned both about the fate of the men who had gone to fight the infidel in the Holy Land and about the well-being of those who had stayed at home, among other measures she issued numerous edicts to encourage the cultivation of wheat. So it was that Blanche de Brabant was created, the Belgian wheat beer with added coriander seed and orange zest.

Bottled 330ml. -at Harat’s Zagreb. Lemony yellow coloured, medium sized airy white head, mild coriander in the nose. Milky, coriander, slightly lemony and touch of wheat with notes of over-ripe fruits in the finish. Boring.

gustavofnd (217) - SAO PAULO, BRAZIL - MAY 16, 2015
Boa cerveja witbier, mas não chega a ser sensacional. A hoergaarden e a vedett ainda são melhores. Vale tomar novamente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SkillsFactory (593) - ITALY - MAY 15, 2015
Dorata pallida, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di banana (lievito) e coriandolo. Stesse note palatali, corpo leggero, acquosa, mediamente carbonata. Retrolfatto di coriandolo e leggero lievito. Niente di speciale, impallidisce davanti ad una Blanche De Namur.

Tognetta (777) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 24, 2015
Espuma branca que se desfaz muito rápido. Visual amarelo claro levemente turvo. Aroma de palha seca, um pouco de coentro. Carbonação média, corpo bastante leve. Paladar sem destaque, aguado. Esperava muito mais, não tem nem o frescor tradicional das wits. Ainda tem 8 meses até a validade, mas talvez tenha sido transportada de maneira errada.

Classica blanche dal corpo medio ma non esaltante e dai profumi non troppo accentuati forse troppo minimal in tutto. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

kraddel (6687) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle . Pours fuzzy blonde . Good white head fades instantly . Smell is sharp, some lemon . Taste is sharp, simple, bit bitter, coriander, some orange peel ( in a full way ) . Sweet ( not too sweet ) .A bit out of balance, giving it a very straight , simple taste . On top of that , as to be expected, overcarbonated .
