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.

330ml bottle from mix pack. Faint orange aroma, off-yellow, hazy urine colour. Subdued taste, with tangy carbonation, like a pop. Dry , tart aftertaste. I think I got a lemon. Or what was supposed to be a lemon.

Citrus and coriander without sweetness. Light and fruity, slightly tart and fairly refreshing. I got one bottle on close-out and had to go back to buy the rest.

From tap. Hazy dirty straw-yellow with a white head. Rather faint aroma - slightly yeasty some citric notes. Medium soft body with a medium sweetness. The flavor is fruity, hints of banana, lemon and sugar. Reminds a little bit of lemonade. A little to sweet with a light hoppy bitterness in the finish.

daje (4209) - NORWAY - NOV 29, 2016
On tap at BrewDog Gteborg, august 3rd 2016. Cloudy yellow body with a big white head. Aroma is sweet, candy, with wheat and mild spicy yeast. Floral taste, quite sweet, with coriander and tea leaves. Not bad but maybe a bit monotone.
