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.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was sweet and citrusy. The flavor was sweetish, wheaty, citrusy and a little musty with a hint of spice. Rather full bodies for a wit.

aracauna (3576) - Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Labeled as Blanche de Bruxelles. Pours a cloudy gold with a moderate head. The aroma is big coriander, but not overwhelming. Sweet orange melds nicely into the wheat to make for a very refreshing beer.
