COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BillHick420 (419) - North Dakota, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Pours clear with a straw hint. Frothy white head. Faint nose of fruit and yeast. Weak aroma, slight sweetness, some esters and fruit. There’s a reason why this is the "only Trappist white ale"?

Marcius (197) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Appearance with pale golden color, cloudy liquid and nice foaming. Fruity and floral aroma. On the palate, the acidity and freshness are the strengths. It is a good Witbier.

Review acoording to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 16A). Bottle 33cl - Batch K10A14. AROMA: sweet and subtle cereal background. moderate coriander with moderate citrusy notes. hop aromas very subtle to none. APPEARANCE: very pale straw/hay color. very clear. dense white head with good retention. TASTE: predominant herbal hop flavour balanced with citrusy character. and a mild wheat background. low hop bitterness that doesnt linger. PALATE: medium-light to light body, a bit on the watery/thin side. finishes not very dry and without tartness. Very effervescent and highly carbonated. no astringency. OVERALL: altough refreshing and very drinkable, an average wit.

Den är ljus och lätt. Klassisk veteölssmak. Något fylligare än andra alternativ i klassen. Faktiskt rätt god under rätt förutsättningar.
