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.

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 (1827) - 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 (4180) - 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.

2.9
Yves (3134) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2008
Hazy blond coloured beer with small white head and some nice carbonation. Little perfumed aroma (granny). Full little creamy palate. Fruity herby finish.

2.2
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.

3.4
FlipperSipper (14) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2008
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, didn’t 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.

2.7
Dorwart (2609) - 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.
