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.

grikmok (132) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Poured to a hazy light yellow beer. Aromas of wheat and floral. Initial taste of vanilla, and floral notes, ended with a short barley taste. Not very memorable.

11.2 oz bottle. Jujube in Chapel Hill. Labeled Blanche De Bruxelles. Guy pissing on the label. Pours a cloudy typical blonde pisslike yellow. Aroma is vanilla, coriander, didnt get the banana, but definitely a bit of sweet citrus. Clean balanced flavor. The creamy white head provides for a very smooth mouthfeel. Very short aftertaste citrusy with a little spice and possibly a subtle hop bite. An excellent example of the style. On the second sip, vanilla is a little more forward on the nose and mouth. Interesting blonde, not my favorite style but Id drink it again.

Dorwart (2578) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Wow, this is truely a "white" beer. The color of this brew is just about as white as you can get. Kind of a milky gold. Quite hazy. Bright white head of fine bubbles. Reduces to a thin foam. Light lemon and cookie dough in the aroma along with some sugary sweetness. More lemon and sugar cookies in the flavor. Light and crisp. Finishes chalky and pasty with some light lemon again. An ok witbier.

Draft. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is lemon, vanilla and spice, maybe a light note of banana. Crisp body. Sweet flavor of lemon and wheat, and again, a very light hint of banana that I cant help but notice. Ends rather dry. Nice.ok nothing geat

KnutAlbert (6750) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle in Dublin as Blanche de Bruxelles. Banana, cloves, nice citrus finish. A very decent wit - a fine Summer beer from Belgium. Nothing groundbreaking, but perfectly all right.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Sampled on tap at Monks Cafe. Nothing really jumped out at me from this guy, except the little boy pissing.. epic. Tasted good - yeast, vanilla, and maybe banana, smelled good - wheaty, and looked decent. Mouthfeel was a little thin. Session beer, probably best as cold as possible.

texasbartender (160) - Sugarland, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2008
The beer pours a cloudy yellow white. You can clearly taste the citrus, yeast, cloves, wheat and banana. The beer is very drinkable but nothing I would write home about.

Tasted 2008-05-19. Pours cloudy, pale yellow with white head. Got cloves, banana, wheat and yeast. A little boring, but tasty none the less.
