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.

Вполне неплохой Бланш. Отчасти не понимаю такого низкого рейтинга. Аромат приятный, травы и кориандр. Вкус слегка терпкий, сильно чувствуются цитрусы и кориандр. В послевкусие ощущается легкая фруктовая горчинка на языке, иногда она не совсем приятна. В целом ничего невероятного, но низкой оценки данное пиво точно не заслужило.

On tap at pizzeria icio&paola. Pale yellow color light haze short stable white head, no lacing.Aroma of citrus, wheat, grass, some coriander maybe. Reminds me of the earlier blanches I’ve had, 10+ years ago. Light body, average carbonation, smooth finish light tart taste. Unexpectedly herbal, but served too warm, this one should be iced. Not bad after all.

ogivlado (8108) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 12, 2016
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.

Marko (6088) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2016
On tap at Harat’s Zagreb. Misty yellow body with a lasting white head. Sweet aroma, coriander, underlying wheat malt, banana, lactic, dusty. Soft, nice sweetish taste, coriander, orange, light banana, ok, perfumey, adequate carbonation. Not bad, not great, all coriandered up.

Trolleo (1742) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 26, 2016

andrepintado (3663) - Porto, PORTUGAL - JAN 16, 2016
33cl bottle at emporio da cerveja, lisboa, portugal. Hazy white color. Medium to thin white head. Light sweetness and bitterness. Interesting tartness. Aroma is citric, coriander.

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 (738) - 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.
