COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Also sold as Blanche de Quenast in Dia/Ed supermarkets, as Floreffe Wit for Floreffe Abbey, as Mediterranea for the Italian market, as Blanche de Francorchamps, as t Geheim van de Smit, as Manneken Pis, and as LAlsacienne Blanche de lEt.
Ingredients: Malted barley; wheat (40%); coriander; bitter orange peel; sugar; hops; yeast.
Blanche de Bruxelles owes its natural cloudiness to the large percentage (40 %) of wheat that goes into its composition. The natural spice aromas of coriander and bitter orange peels are added during the brewing process. The brewing method, which includes infusion, is very slow. The beer, which is not filtered, is bottled and refermented with yeast and brewing sugar. You need only take a sip of this delicious drink to appreciate the fresh and mellow flavour with its hint of orange. It is really not like any other beer. Always served chiled, between 3C and 6C.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May. 16. A 0.33 l bottle. It poured a hazy pale yellow body with a big head atop. Lemon, coriander and bubblegum aroma. Flavor was a bit sweet, sugary, with bubblegum, fruity (peach), chalk and coriander notes. Medium bodied with moderately long finish. Okay, a wit on the sweeter side but therefore also full for the style.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle - Cloudy pale straw colour, large, dense white foamy head, fair retention. Spicy and wheaty nose with some dough, coriander, orange peel, crushed wheat. Taste is a bit sourish, some bread, orange, lemon, coriander, some honey tones. Light body, lively carbonation, slick mouthfeel, refreshingly dry finish. Nice wit, but not the best at all.

bichichi (4) - Bortigali, ITALY - MAY 13, 2016 does not count
Una birra che si beve con estrema felicit in quanto risulta fresca e dissetante.Giallo paglierino.Schiuma poco persistente.Media effervescenza con bollicine poche e fini.Laroma di leggera intensit , si ha un primo sentore di agrumi per poi sfumare in aromi piu dolci di lieviti e cereali.Corpo leggero, gusto dolce e fresco coon sfumature di agrumi e coriandolo. Non entusiasmante ma neppure sgradevole.
