Hazy yellow pour, one finger foamy white head, lasts for a while.
Smell is rich in coriander and citrus peel, some soapy herbs too and light wheat.
Quite sour, with a lot of lemon and orange beside the usual peel. Soft white bread, no crust. Low coriander and a minty herbal feel throughout. Finshes crisp, dry, with a mild grassy bitterness.
Medium body, a bit too much carbonation.
Nice, crisp, dry, not sweet in the slightest, a nice wit, tho not the tastiest out there.

Served on-tap in a cervoise at Mekong (Richmond, VA).

A: Slightly hazy light golden with a spritzy-appearing 1/2-finger white head with good retention and a few streamers of lace here and there.

S: The aroma was a little light but was mainly spiced coriander and orange peel. There was also a nice herbal tone to the aroma. Pale malt and wheat slip through to give it a rounded if slightly subdued nose.

T: The flavor was also a bit muted with a touch of lemony-orange citrus tang, herbal hopping, and a light dash of coriander. There is a touch of Belgian yeastiness, much more than in the nose where it is barely noticeable. The pale malt and wheat provides only a little ethereal sweetness and not much else.

M: A very nice balance of above-average carbonation and light body without making it feel like you have a mouthful of Nerds -- just smooth and caressing.

O: A little more flavor and aroma would have bumped this guy up some. It could use to take a page from the St. Bernardus book and slap on some more Belgian wheat malt and pale malts to give more substance and a little more sweetness and then counter with more citrus and herbal hopping. Not a bad beer, and it went great with my Vietnamese pork dish -- but I think it could be a lot better.

A: Cloudy lemonade soda. Minimal head. Some rising micro bubbles
S: Sweet orange, cleaning fluid (but not in a horrible way).
T: Almost orangina like, but obviously not as sweet. Extremely easy to drink, it's quite soda like. A tinge bitter. Citrus. A tad tart.
M: Pleasant sodaish, microcarbonation sting, medium bodied.
D: Very easy going down. Pleasant. Flavors are mild.

Served in a pint glass at Paradiso.

I've always said I prefer my grisettes blanche. Yeah. It pours a very hazy pale straw topped by a finger of white micro-foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, coriander, cardamom, wheat, and grass. The taste is very similar, adding candi sugar, lemonade mix, and some light orange peel to the proceedings. The body is light, with an active carbonation and a crisp, refreshing finish. Overall, a pretty good wit, but nothing all that amazing. Good for a nice swig, though.

This is one of the best if not the best white I've had. It's a style I haven't gotten into much, some are good, some are bad, but I have yet to find many that are great. This one is great. Very citusy, almost juicy. PERFECT for a warm spring/summer day. I love the opaque cloudiness...yeast and banana flavors and scents, lemony flavors, a bit of tartness backed up with wheat. Very nice.

Sampled on draft tonight at The Belgian Cafe.

Pours a very hazy dark golden ripe banana yellow color that is pretty much comPletely opaque with a thin off white foam head that quickly fades leaving no lacing.

Bready yeast aroma with subtle zesty spice hints as well as some citrus fruit. There's a little bit of pepper and corriander along with subtle banana and orange peel. The nose is kind of bland really.

Medium bodied and a lot fuller than I expected which was peasant with some soft carbonation up front giving way to a bready/yeasty body with lots of zesty spice and sweet fruit. Lots of corriander and subtle spice that adds a bit of complexity that lasts throughout, lingering over hints of clove, banana and orange peel. After the appearance and aroma I wasn't expectng much but this beer tasted pretty good.

Reviewed on 06/22/2009. On tap at Sunset Grill. This beer pours a cloudy light yellow with a white head. Aroma of light yeast and bready malt and sweet fruit. Flavor of mint gumdrops, sweet bready yeast. Overall, I thought that this was a decent beer.

Sampled this offering on draft in Charleroi, Belgium on 23.05.2005. The appearence was quite good, lightly clouded resembling Hoegaarden but a bit more lemon in colour. Had a nice aroma as one would expect from a Belgian Blanche. Nice citrus refreshing smell. First taste quite good continuing the smell test, but started to deteriorate quite quickly. Average mouthfeel. Not bad as a middle-of-the-day thirst quencher, but two would be the max before looking for something else. Not a patch on Blanche de Namur.
