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.

Pours a nice hazy white/straw with a good, fluffy head. Smells yeasty with coriander and spice. There are nice notes of citrus, yeast, wheat, and coriander. It tastes like a better version of Hoegaarden. Not bad. Not my thing, but not bad.

33cl Bouteille Mousse : Blanche, dense de fines bulles Couleur : Jaune citron brumeuse Nez : Houblon levuré style Belge, coriandre, agrume / malt Bouche : Houblon levuré, citron, coridandre, orange et malt. Final finement amer et houblonné sur une saveur orangée. Avis : Blanche Belge trés classique, de qualité, sans défauts mais sans grande personnalité.

0.5l can from Belga Sörmester. Big white head, pale yellow body, hazy. Citrus aroma,bit of orange, bit of lemon, some spices also present. Taste is well balanced, sweet, yeasty, and a bit sour. Some complexity and spices also detectable. Moderate-strong carbonation, yet nice soft palate. Yeasty, sweetish aftertaste. Refreshing summer beer.

330ml bottle part of a tasting pack. Pours a hazy deep straw colour with one finger of white head. Aromas of yeast, coriander, and some oranges. Taste matches the aroma. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color amarillo pálido, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente chispeante. Cilantro y grano en nariz. Mucho limón y lima. No me tira tanto a peladura de naranja. Sabor a limón, lima, naranja, cilantro y grano. Final de ligero amargor. Suave, simple y fresca.

Cloudy off yellow appearance. Nice citrus yeasty aroma. Clean taste - nice and refreshing with a good balance (bordering more on the sweet side). Soft medium bodied - nice on the tongue. A pleasant beer but not got a huge wow.

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.

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.

Daboch (246) - Gdansk, POLAND - NOV 25, 2017
Piwo koloru słomkowego, z białą pianą. Aromat i smak owocowy lekkokwaskowaty. Niezły typowy witbier

crazykiller (108) - Iasi, ROMANIA - NOV 5, 2017
33 cl bottle bought from supermarket. Pours hazy pale yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is floral, bananas, coriander, oranges, wheat. Taste of yeast, coriander, some oranges, light bananas. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, nice yeasty finish. Overall a good witbier.
