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.

Looks like lemonade with fine white (and disappearing) head. Aroma is lemons, yeast and coriander. Typical wit taste of orange and coriander but it doesn’t set itself apart from may favorite wit, St. Bernardus. It is pretty thin, but drinkable. Pretty clean taste overall.

nathanvc (537) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle from a Carrefour in Bruges. Pours hazy pale yellow with a lasting, foamy, white head. The aroma contains wheat (especially in the smell), malt, citrus, coriander and some banana. It tastes medium sweet, light sour and light to medium bitter (with spice and wheat in the finish). Medium/light body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation - the texture borders on soapy.

VamboladeTolly (2114) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2017

beer-yum (1756) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 21, 2017
Restrained floral aroma in a straw gold pour. Complex mix of spice, fruit, bread, and more done with the subtlety only the Belgian masters can achieve.

Very refreshing and light beer. As for specifics, nice golden color,but couldn’t see through it. Small head, fruity aroma. As noted before, very light, moderately carbonated actually on the lower side. Great.
