Return to List

Named for Princess Blanche of Namur, born in the area in 1320 and later married King Magnus IV of Norway, this is a traditional wit that offers upfront aromas and flavors of orange peel, lemony hop, underripe stone fruit and yeasty spice. It's faint golden-yellow in color, with a cloud-like white head that shows good retention. The palate is smooth and approachable, with a medium-minus body and brisk, lifting carbonation that keeps it clean and refreshing. Subtle hints of coriander, clove and earthy, softly mentholated herbs tease on the finish. Merchant du Vin. Lauren Buzzeo
