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.

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2008
On draft at the Saucer. Has a light hazy, golden body with ample white head. Aroma is of coriander and citrus. Grainy taste with some spicy and fruity notes admixed. Has a great mouthfeel. Better than the regular Hoegaarden in my opinion.

moldovan9807 (145) - Oradea, ROMANIA - APR 22, 2017
yeasty and somewhat wheaty and doughy aroma with notes of green bananas and hints of citrus and coriander. Moderate sweet with some acidity and rather mild fruity and yeasty flavours. Drinkable and somewhat refreshing.

Cristobal37 (989) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2017
Aroma is blank. Super pale slight haze, head dissipates. Sweet bread, tangy pineapple. Tame wit beer low on flavor. Lacks the spicy fruity aroma, but still satisfies your thirst. Disappointing in the end.

50 cl can. Hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Sweet aroma with wheat malts, citrus fruits, spices and yeasts. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with sweet fruits, banana, citrus and an earthy touch. Okay, refreshing drink.

rjplumer (1046) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2017
Bready lemon aroma. Bright yellow body that has a mild haziness. Pillowy white head is about an inch thick lingers quite a bit. The bready lemon quality comes through in the taste too. Light bodied and refreshing.

Hazy pale golden beer with little white head. Aroma is wheat and herbs, dry bitter. Taste is citrus, banana, little sour and malty sweetness. Also a bit bitter aftertaste. Easy drinkable, refreshing solid beer.
