Blanche de Bruxelles from Brasserie Lefebvre in Belgium
This Belgian brewery crafts some of my favourite dubbel and tripel beers under the Floreffe name, but this witbier just wasn’t of the same caliber.
It pours extremely light in colour, with a very cloudy, almost milky look.
Dense, this beer stays an opaque light yellow colour and the small creamy white head vanishes in less than a minute.
Smells like a fresh wheat field and drinks easy. Misses the mark on big flavour though, it’s simple and enjoyable but not even spiced as much as the commonly available Hoegaarden, for example.
The ingredients list includes coriander and curaçao, but it takes a good effort to find that coriander flavour. You’re not missing a lot if you can’t find this wheat beer, which is only mildly wicked.
The Wicked Wheat Beer Series is a collection of great wheat beers ranging from Belgian Witbier to Dunkelweiss to Hefeweizen and everything in between. If you’re a glutton for gluten, or wild for wheat beers, these are the refreshing beers for you.
