The brewery describes this beer as being characteristic for old farm-based breweries. Wheat (40%), coriander and dried orange peel are added, and the infusion method of slowly adding hot water makes for the historical analogy.
The beer is cloudy and unfiltered, with a crisp white head. There is an inviting aroma of orange citrus and the soft coriander. All with a hint of Belgian yeast in the background.
The taste is a pleasant balance of flavours that compliment each other, without any one feature standing out too obviously. A grainy wheat crispness, citrus which comes through with a slight hint of sweetness from the orange, gentle spicing from the coriander with a hint of clove, and a semi-dry finish with a slight peppery tingle.Perfect for a warm afternoon session-starter. Softens as the beer stands, with flavours coming out a little more, but serve cold from the fridge to enjoy the crisp mouthfeel.
Beer Fact : this beer is (or has been) sold under several different names, into different markets. Ever had a Manneken Pils, Meditteranea, Blanche de Francorchamps, Floreffe Wit or L'Alsacienne Blanche de l'Ete? They are all the same beer!
