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.

Nice clear/tan appearance. Got a buttery, watery taste from this one. A bit too mellow for my liking.

Cimbasso (868) - - FEB 15, 2017
330ml bottle with usual crown top (not a cork as in the photo) from Marks & Spencer. Pours a hazy pale golden colour. Aromas of lemon and wheat, and a taste of citrus, banana and esters. Some hints of coriander and other spices. Not much bitterness. A little sweet and one dimensional, but an OK witbier.

Draft at Burp Castle. Decent wit but nothing special. A little light sourness and malty sweetness. Spice is muted.

ebone1988 (1671) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Aroma is citrus, coriander, wheat, slight dankness, good. Appearance is pale gold, white head, hazy, absolutely beautiful for a wit. Taste is wheat, coriander, slight citrus, not especially interesting but good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, wheat and coriander aftertaste. Overall, a little boring but solid.

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.

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.

Smell is almost non existent...Light and smooth sweet taste, quite good, some complexity but not a lot...just meh...at flying saucer with John Duke and Lopez
