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.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2008
11.2 oz. bottle labelled as Blanche de Bruxelles. Pours a cloudy straw gold with a moderately large white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of lemon and coriander with some yeast notes detected as well. The flavor is lightly sweet with lemon, coriander and wheat. Light on the palate (in a good way) and refreshing. An enjoyable wit.

Raided from my Dads fridge. Pours a cloudy yellow white. Looks like a nice witbier. Smells of wheat and yeast. Flavors of yeasty lemons, orange, and coriander. Slightly lemony sour finish. Good beer for this style.

On tap at Newport Pizza and Ale house. Pours with a pee-pee color with a yeasty haze. Nose is a little tart with grapefruit hints. Taste is light with a dry semi sweetness throughout but ends quickly and watery. Not at all bad just a mellow afternoon ses. beer~ cheers j.h.b. III
