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.

11.2oz bottle Blanche de Bruxelles. Cloudy pale yellow appearance, The nose brings lots of corriander and lemon. Any head that formed left quickly. Flavor is orange peel, corriander and sour yeast.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle labeled "Blanche de Bruxelles." Bright very pale golden pour with medium white head that quickly diminishes to a millimeter layer. Fresh lemons and orange zest as well as wheat and yeast on the nose as well as coriander. Not a super complex aroma. On the tongue, it’s more of the same, but quite thin both in taste and palate. Ends watery and a little sweet rather than slightly sour and crisp. Not bad, but nothing much to this one.

gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2008
Tap at ’da boom’ Alkmaar (under alias Blaunche de Bruxelles). Pours a hazy gold with a large white head, sour citrus aroma. Taste of sour citrus and light wheat, finish very soft citrus. Doesn’t seem to be balanced right- sour is too dominant, not refreshing like other whites ( ie Hoegaarden).

aconley (14) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2008
The balance on this beer is a bit off and comes across rather sweet. The flavor is overall is rather soft and delicate. I have a feeling this beer would taste better as fresh as possible from the brewery.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2008
33cl bottle from Total Wine (Tampa, FL). Pours a cloudy golden color with a one finger white head that settles slowly and laces the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet and spicy with notes of over-ripe fruit, wheat, bread and yeast. Flavor is sweet and tangy with hints of apple, pear, citrus and a slightly watery, bitter finish. Not my favorite witbier as there are so many excellent examples of this style out there.

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2008
On draft at the Saucer. Has a light hazy, golden body with ample white head. Aroma is of coriander and citrus. Grainy taste with some spicy and fruity notes admixed. Has a great mouthfeel. Better than the regular Hoegaarden in my opinion.

3.3
Ron (3963) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Pours slight hazy yellow with a dense white head. Citrus fruity and coriander spiced aroma. Flavor is light wheaty, citrus/lemon fruity and coriander spiced. Ends with a lingering citrus note.

3.1
Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy yellow orange color with a full, fluffy head of foam. Subtle nose, mainly dominated by citrus. Butter toffee, orange and lemon hints in the mouth. Pretty nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. A fairly decent white ale, not one I’d buy again but it’s well crafted.
