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.

Can. Nice beer, and a slightly unique take on the wit style. Aroma is sweet, with notes of honey and apricot. The flavor is similar, though fades much more quickly than I would have liked. Not much of the citrus/spice I normally associate with the style, but I still a nice beer.

visionthing (5079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2017
33cl bottle from Solaris, Tallinn. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a fairly decent, white head. Fairly 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.

rodsquad (151) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours cloudy peachy yellow with a soft white head. Aromas of dry spice and herb. A syrupy sweetness there too. A little lime. Flavours are big with candy floss. Then a light, zesty lemon and lime effervescent bitterness. Body is light with a sharp, lively sparkle. It has a dry, peppery front with a bigger zesty, light finish. Nice and refreshing.

toscanoigor (204) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAR 3, 2017
Cerveja amarela turva, com espuma de baixa formao, finssima, mas durando at o fim, com boa cremosidade. Aroma bem leve de cravo, quase nada de banana, levemente ctrico. Sabor tambm leve, porm mais pronunciado que o aroma: cravo e casca de laranja predominantes, banana bem leve, com nada de amargor, final levemente picante. Boa acidez, corpo muito leve (um pouco aguada de mais pro meu gosto), muita carbonatao. um belo exemplar do estilo

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.
