About Floreffe Blanche by Licorne Brewing Co.

Lightly brewed to a traditional recipe containing 40% soft wheat, this authentic monastery beer reveals under its pure foam and natural aromas that suggest coriander and Curaçao, a refreshing harmony half-way between bitterness and mildness.

The wheat or "white" beer par excellence for the most demanding beer-lovers!

Containing 40% soft wheat, the Blanche de Floreffe wheat beer features a naturally opalescent robe, topped by a very white, dense foam.

Smell :

Coriander and bitter orange peel added to the boiling wort give it a slightly spicy, but unostentatious note.

Taste :

In spite of a smoothness and mellowness in the mouth characteristic of the use of soft wheat, this light, balanced wheat beer offers a great deal of freshness.

Overall impression :

Its aromatic complexity and moderate alcohol content mean that the Blanche de Floreffe is a beer unlike any other.


The Licorne brewery is situated in Saverne, Alsace, a region known for its long-standing connections with beer and brewing. Proud of its home town, the brewery has chosen a unicorn ("licorne") as the emblem to represent the company. Synonymous with purity, strength and independence, the unicorn became the emblem of the town of Saverne in the 16th century. Legend has it that the unicorn dipped its horn in Saverne water and that since then it has been clear and pure, ideal for making beer.
