The world’s first and only Trappist white ale that continues to ferment slightly after bottling. Brewed using only water, wheat, and hops. No herbs are added. Saphir hops give the ale its citrusy aroma. A real thirst-quencher on a hot summer’s day that also makes for a delicious drink at any other time of the year.

Hazy lemon yellow. Large white head. Intense aromas of lemon curd, pie and sesame. Fresh and fizzy. Medium to full body. Long finish with hints of banana sweets. Best witbier so far.

33cl bottle@home in tall glass@approx 7 degrees C. Pours unclear light yellow with massive white head with great retention. Fruity, citrussy aroma with touches of yeast and bread. Semi-sweet taste not unlike pilsener but with a clear wit taste. Pleasant though a bit watery palate with a clear malty, yeasty, bitter aftertaste which is distinctive in a positive way. Will try again on a hot summers day....may that be soon!

Didn’t take proper tasting notes. Citrus, floral, dry. Very nice witbier really.

On tap at In de Wildeman, Amsterdam on 20th March 2015. Crisp light gold with thin off-white head. Fine lemon citrus in aroma, liquid and finish. A zingy mouthfeel and a light body.

degbert (1346) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy, pale yellow-green with a high, pillowy, white head. Nose is lime, fresh bread, coriander, and a slight metallic aroma. A little citrusy sweetness up front, then a bready mild note in the middle. More citrus on the close. Almost no bitterness. Very, very mild. A little sourness on the finish. Really understated -- almost too understated. There are better witbier options.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2015
Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. Dosen’t very smell much but yeast and a bit if wheat. Taste is sweet and fruity, some bitter orange and apricots. Palate is oily and thick. Overall a decent wit, though not very tasteful, but fresh and nice.

Mooi witbier van de trappisten in Berkel-Enschot. Vooralsnog het enige Trappisten-witbier ter wereld. Zonder sinaasappelschillen en koriander. Gewoon veel goede hop!

TedE (453) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Highly carbonated out of the bottle. Sour wheat aroma. Murky amber beer with thin sudsy head, many bubbles rising. Watery and tangy. Finish is light citrus followed by metallic tang. Surprisingly light and easy to drink for 5.5%. You could down a lot of these on a hot day.
