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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Draft. Body-straight up lemonade with a medium ring of bubbles. Nose-lotion and mild triple notes; hard to discern because of all the fing wind on this patio. Taste-You know those awful day-glow orange Circus Peanuts? It tastes like that. And marshmallows, cheap Halloween candy, very soft mouthfeel in a good way, has a fake, cheap taste but it isnt too awful, big fruity medicine like esters, cottony, very dry, light dry citric finish. Overall odd but not terrible. Very vinous dry, and citric, apple.

shrubber85 (11011) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle (Blance de Bruxelles). Musty sour milk aroma. Cloudy pale yellow color with large head. Slightly sweet orange-lemon wheat malt flavor - light musty flavor with moderate acidity. Excellent witbier.

MTP (13) - Waco, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2007
I had this as "Blanche de Bruxelles". It was a very enjoyable white beer that was also somewhat cloudy. Very light, and refreshing.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2007
draft @ Falling Rock. Wheaty with hints of spices and citrus. Pours very cloudy yellow with a good white head. Light wheat flavor, only hints of spices like corriander, lemon citrus, reminds me of Vuuve a lot.

PorterPounder (7676) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 11.2 fl oz bottle - labeled as Blanche de Bruxelles. Light golden, hazy, with a soft white head. Aroma of lemon joy and hard candy. Lemony flavor with a bit of sourness thrown in the back end. Some tonic water notes and a bit of citrus and coriander. Quite refreshing after working in the yard all afternoon. Fizzy, lively spritzy mouthfeel - just the right amount of carbonation.

RSRIZZO (1973) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had this beer on 8/25/1998. Color is a light hazy pale gold. Carbonation is low as well as the head. Aroma is a sour cider scent. Taste is light and sweet. Starts with a light body that goes down with a fizzy feel. Finish is a light sour cider taste that is a lot like the aroma.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 Looks like a belgian white, big frothy white head with light straw color and some bubbles. Aroma of cottencandy. Very light flavors, citrus, some coriander. The body is thin with lots of tiny bubbles. Dry finish, very drinkable. Not an allstar but I would take it at a bar over macro anytime.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle. Hazy and hay colored with a strong coriander and yeasty aroma. Light wheat flavor with that undeniable spicy notes. Very drinkable but somehow missing something essential. Ive had better.

BelgianBeerGal (3950) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Bottle under the Blanche de Bruxelles label. Very simple, watery witbier. Even mass produced Hoegaarden beats this. Just average. *However, if you try this directly at the Abbey as Floreffe Blanche, it is pretty tasty.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Draft. Under the name Blanche de Bruxelles. Aroma mostly wheat and touch of lemon. Hazy bright yellow with white cap. Flavor was wheaty banana and citric. Palate was medium thickness. Overall, not too bad.
