Blanche de Chambly has a flowery smell. The smell is intriguing. It doesn't quite smell like banana. I suppose it smells more like wheat. Regardless, it's pleasant smell. Finally tasting the beer, I find it has a nice, light taste. Actually, it's very light, but not in a bad way (like a Bud Light). 8:25PM PT

I like the light, refreshing taste. This beer is light with a hint of citrus flavor. It reminds me of a wheat beer and/or Blue Moon (Belgian-style witbier). Looking around the bottle, I find it classifies itself as a Belgian white ale (witbier).

On my third or fourth sip, I sense a copious amount of carbonation. Its possibly I only noticed this because J.D. mentioned being distracted by the carbonation with the other Unibroue beers he's had over the past few days.
