The Blanche de Cambrai beer comes from a rigorous selection of special malts and aromatic spices. This delicious bottle pours a very hazy, lemon yellow to light brown colour, with on top a thin fizzy, white-collar full of carbon. Aromas of pale, bready malts with lightly tangy citrus. Tastes of wheat & malt as well as citrus and mild spices. Moderate sweet and light acetic flavour. Medium palate. Nice fluffy white head bubbles up as it’s poured but disappears quickly leaving no lacing.
Blanche de Cambrai comes from the village of Hordain about fifteen kilometres south of Valenciennes, La Choulette is one of the oldest craft breweries in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, in fact, the borough of Valenciennes had, in 1910, more than 243 breweries. Heir to this rich brewing past, the Brasserie La Choulette has retained the authenticity of true artisanal production.
