Poured into a tulip.

A: The Blanche De Chambly has a clean and crisp look to it. Robust and yellow in its body, foamy and white in its head, it's simple. Any monotony is broken, however, by the fogginess of the body and the vibrancy of the carbonation.

S: If the coriander rises far above the other scents, it at least gives the beer a pleasant air. Notable also is wheat and orange. Refreshing if a bit unbalanced.

T: A better balancing of the aroma. Wheat, coriander and orange share equal footing and a nice earthy aftertaste punctuates this simple experience.

M: A zealous amount of carbonation provides this beer with a vivacious feel that gives some robustness to the thin body.

O: Refreshing is the key word here. A simple and well-balanced Witbier.

I drink this brew whenever I can, and I am fortunate enough to have a store that caries it only thirty (30) miles away, meaning that I can get it quite often.

I actually wrote this review in detailed parts at first, but I find that I kept saying, "This beer is amazing!" so I decided to cancel it out and write the simpler version. I am a Unibroue devotee, first, and I admit this with utmost pride. While there are a couple of breweries that I have wanted to try and have not yet had the opportunity, Unibroue is definitely my brewery of choice thus far, and Blanche de Chambly is no exception. In fact, I can think of no brew more satisfying on a warm day.

I will concede, though, that those who desire heavier brews will probably opt to shy away from this one, though such folk would understandably shy away from the style as a whole. It is very sweet and light.

To this point in my experience, Blanche de Chambly is a champion among witbiers from a champion among breweries.

From notes:

P: Cloudy with streaming bubbles and a thin layer of milky head that disappears quickly. Golden apricot orange body.

S: Decadent yeast esters, musky leather, sweet candy malts, ground spices, coriander and Clive. Apricots, persimmons and a timid citrus aroma.

T/M: Great medium body with perfect tingling carbonation. Taste follows the nose with a bigger alcohol concentration. Fruity and medicinal, moldy wood, grass, and b-vitamins. Tingling finish of bandaids and a bitter woodiness.

O: Delicious and refreshing a definate favorite for the summer. Complex and well balanced. I highly recommend.
