COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in Strasbourg for Alken-Maes, distribution unclear. Spiced.

Grimbergen Blanche is a true wheat beer in the most traditional sense. The pale yellow Blanche is cloudy, just as you would expect from a wheat beer. Notes of citrus and light carbonation add character to the creamy palate and make Blanche an excellent thirst quencher.

Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes slightly dry and fruity with yeasts and slightly spiced notes. Nothing special but a fine thirst quencher in the summer heat.

0.5 tap.
A hazy, yellow color with a small, white head. Aroma is citric, banana and bubblegum feature prominently too - quite standard for the style but nonetheless pleasant. Taste is sweet: bananas, vanilla, and spices form the backbone. A medium body, a creamy/slick texture, and a below-average carbonation. Finish is rather sweet but not particularly long. Overall the beer is fine, it represents the good side of the commercial brewing industry.
