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 L’Alsacienne Blanche de l’Eté.
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 3°C and 6°C.

interesting beer, I like strykzone’s rating where he said it is chemical laced... very accurate. Strong on flavor but something just doesn’t seem right.

Strykzone (7362) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2008
A huge soapy white head interrupted the pour. Cloudy yellow gold is light in color. Aroma is full of yeast with clove and lemon. Flavor is chemical laced but offers coriander, yeast, spices, fruit, and a good amount of wheat. It is crisp and tart and lightly sweet. It feels smoother than most in the mouth but very little carbonation. An enjoyable summertime wit.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2008
(Served as Blanche de Bruxelles from tap at Opal Divine’s on July 7, 2008) Yellowish-green color, almost like a freaky lemonade in appearance. Cloudy like one, too. Little head, not much lacing… bad pour, perhaps. Unique look and aroma. Smells uncommonly of spice and citrus…. so much that it’s fairly sour. Taste is extremely sour, and has properties similar to lemon/honey cold medicine. The kind that coats the throat. Light body, but vibrant palate!

IrishBoy (4200) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Draft at Seattle International Beer Fest as Blanche de Bruxelles; Very light spices and wheaty yeastiness; hazy gold with a small white head; flavor is yeast, very light tartness, very light spiciness, and light hop bitterness.

thill25 (232) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2008
11.2 oz bottle labeled Blanche de Bruxelles...Pale, hazy yellow with a lasting, pillowy, white head with some soapy lacing. The nose was coriander, spice, and citrus. The flavor was lemon, wheat, spice, and some doughy yeast. Palate was thin, watery, sweet, and had a lasting sweet finish. Almost like a wit light...very bland. Not a bad beer, but wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase. Might be a good introductory beer for macro drinkers...
