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.

From 33cl bottle. Cloudy gold color... looks nice. Rather strong citrus notes and taste also strong compare to other white beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reeds eens geproefd op 24-11-2013. Nog eens geproefd op 10-9-2016. Blanche de Bruxelles is een bleek-geel en wazig biertje dat bij het uitschenken een normale hoeveelheid wit schuim geeft en een gelijkmatige laag op het bier vormt. Het schuim heeft een normale stabiliteit en is normaal wandklevend. Veel pareling te zien met grote belletjes. Blanche de Bruxelles heeft een zoetig citrus aroma en ook ietwat amandel en vanille. Deze twee laatste komen maar opzetten als het biertje al wat opgewarmd is. De smaak is eerst en vooral zoetig met een klein zuurtje erbij, ook wat citrus en wat van de tarwemout kan je smaken. In de mond geeft Blanche de Bruxelles toch maar een medium volmondigheid en is hij normaal prikkelend. De textuur is ook wel volmondig, een harmonieus biertje toch. De nasmaak vloeit een weinig uit en is vooral zoetig en fris. Heb al betere wittekes geproefd maar Blanche de Bruxelles is toch ook niet slecht.

minutemat (6133) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2017
330ml bottle @ Merckx, Bridgnorth. Pours misty yellow, small white head. Aroma is floral, some lemon citrus. Taste presents a clean, smooth, floral with with some noticeable tangerine and lemon notes. Light bodied and a little easy-going. Not the most flavoursome wit, but it's refreshing enough.

Piwo koloru słomkowego, z białą pianą. Aromat i smak owocowy lekkokwaskowaty. Niezły typowy witbier

Hazy straw color with frothy white head. Aroma sweet orange, grains, lemon hard candy and light spices. Taste is slightly sweet at first with wheat and orange notes, faint spices, mostly coriander, light hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body with soft mouthfeel and carbonation. Overall it's a decent, easy drinking wit.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Одно из знаменитейших бланшев в мире. На вкус очень чувствуются цитрусы . Пиво легко, очень питкое. Одно из самых красивых по цвету пиво. Пить лучше всего в разливе.

The guy who sold us this beer explained that this was the first beer to use orange peels and compared it to blue moon, which is why Ibought it. The aroma was good but the taste was kind of bland. I was expecting a bit darker taste because of the oranges and the comparison to blue moon but after a couple gulps the beer became even clearer. Overall, the beer was good to taste, I wouldn't recommend it though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nathanvc (766) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle from a Carrefour in Bruges. Pours hazy pale yellow with a lasting, foamy, white head. The aroma contains wheat (especially in the smell), malt, citrus, coriander and some banana. It tastes medium sweet, light sour and light to medium bitter (with spice and wheat in the finish). Medium/light body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation - the texture borders on soapy.
