Brewed only once a year to keep you warm during the cold winter months, the Blanche Neige (« Snow white ») isn’t your typical wheat beer. Firstly, the level of alochol is surprising and is perceived rapidly both in the bouquet and in the mouth. The spices come through immediately, giving very little room for the usual wheat beer aromas (coriander and curaçao). Cinnamon and clove dominate and the flavours are generously well-rounded thanks no doubt to residual sugars. It is therefore a very sweet beer that is best appreciated slowly.

GarnotingPete's rating

Bière dorée, turbulente de par de fines particules de levures et coiffée d’un fin col blanc laissant au verre une délicate dentelle. Des arômes affirmés mais délicats de girofle et de cannelle. Ces arômes me font penser aux vins épicés et même au caribou québécois! Elle est peu amère et légèrement sucrée. Elle est soyeuse, fortement effervescente et se termine sur de chaleureux arômes sucrés.

Pours a small layer of white foamy head and has a yellow coppery appearance. Pretty good lacing. Aromas are very yeasty, malty has notes of bananas and floral scents. Mouthfeel is somewhat sweet. Medium carbonation. Flavours are also quite yeasty with floral hops and grainy malts. sort of wheaty with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Some mild spices as well. Pretty sweet tasting. Good for as a taster but not a continuous chugger.

Had a bottle on 3.29.14. This is pretty solid. Smell is spices and cinnamon and vanilla. Flavor is all of those spices plus some sweetness and coriander. Not bad!

’’Blanche’’ atypique, robe orangée, nez fruité. Beaucoup de parfums, à la fois fruité et épicé. Original et savoureux.

swannycellars (43) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2015
Aromas of Banana Bread, orange blossom, clove and cinnamon. Tastes of Clove, citrus, slight wheaty banana, cinnamon and sweet candy which is cut by a short zap of bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Good Beer.

Davros (2875) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows cinnamon, cloves, candied orange, soft wheat. Very strong spices. Loads more spices as flavours, close to overpowering. Some soft malt in there.

Gift from Lisa and Craig. Lovely aromas of bananas, cinnamon, and clove. Brownish yellow colour, opaque. Off-white small head. Banana and wheat flavours, with prominent cinnamon and clove. Lingering cinnamon aftertaste. Quite nice.

Franckg (1328) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Arômes de levures épicées, muscade, clous de girofle et cannelle. En bouche, les clous de girofle prennent beaucoup de place et se mélange à merveille avec la cannelle qui elle apporte un coût plus sucré. Je ne savais pas trop quoi m’attendre avec cette bière mais je dois avouer que je suis impressionné.

Cloudy golden colour with small soapy off-white head. Sweet and spicy aromas, with banana bread, strong cinnamon, cloves, a little grassy hops and some booze. Very strong cinnamon and clove straight up in the taste, then the sweet banana bread enters too, before a little grass kicks in before finishing back where we started with the cinnamon and cloves again. Medium bodied. Really enjoyable.
