COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blanche du Paradis is a Belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander seeds and Curaao orange peels, the spices traditionnally found in this classic style. Unfiltered and containing almost as much raw wheat as malted barley, it presents a veil of yeast and proteins giving this style its "Blanche" name. Round and light at the same time, it exhales fresh baked bread aromas, and reveals spices and citrus flavours, accompanied by subtle notes of acidity coming from the wheat.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Wonderful aromas and flavors redolent of florals, spices, yeast and citrus. Super complex and interesting... Great mouthfeel.. Fine, bottle conditioned carbonation.. Feeling light, while still being broad and full in the mouth. Penetrating flavors and a long finish.. Highly recommended if you feel like a spice wheat beer!! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
Murky, dirty, hazy, foggy yellow body with a fragrant white cap floating on top. Wow, wow, wow what is this heavenly sent. Sweet wheat, coriander, mandarin orange, clove and tons of yeast. Been smelling now for twenty minute and I just cant stop.......oh so good. Taste is light and crisp. So much lemon, orange peel, spice is nice and the wheat is great. Nice wheaty backbone and a great floral finish. Brew has a zing to it I cant explain.....possibly the lemon. Fantastic wit!!!!

drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle, pours clear straw yellow gold with white head. Aroma as a nice bouquet of orange peel, floral and lemony spice, flavors are crisp and refreshing, great orange peel notes that blend perfectly with the spices used. Fresh, lemony, floral and citrus profile. Theres just enough bread dough and bitterness in the backend. Finishes very clean, couldnt be more refreshing. Ive had a great ton of bad wits, a few excellent ones, but this is probably my favorite. I see no fault in this beer.

Scopey (14229) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Tap at Beer Revolution, Calgary. It pours hazy straw yellow, with a medium white head. The nose is wheat, hotdog, smokiness, and some undelryign sweetness...odd! The taste is wheat, spice, light tartness, chlorine, green banana, leaf, coraiander, lemon sherbet and grapefruit, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nose not so great, but taste more than makes up for it.
