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.

Dorwart (2585) - 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 can’t help but notice. Ends rather dry. Nice.ok nothing geat

KnutAlbert (6754) - 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.

Brix (660) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
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.

Tasted the tap-version. Distiquished sharpish taste, best served cold. A lady’s beer.

Bottle, labeled Blanche de Bruxelle’s, Keg’s & Barrels, McKInney, TX. Poured a nice hazy yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma was a clean citis aroma of lemon, corriander, slight hints of bannana. Flavor was nice and crisp....light malt, notes of coriander. Palat was light and high carbonation. Very refreshing beer.

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2008
11.2 oz. bottle labelled as Blanche de Bruxelle’s. 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.
