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.

High fluffy head that quickly dissapears. Very yellow color but a litle opaque. Faint aroma of bananas. Smooth wheat maltyness and some bananas.

eaglefan538 (2926) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle enjoyed at the NSSRQSOSLT, 1/10! No idea who brought this, but thanks! Pour was pale yellow-white, ok head. The aroma was funky wheat, bready yeast, phenolic spicey elements, some citrus. The flavor followed and wasn’t big enough to wow, too much watered down action. Herbal and spicey and weak citrus was the summary. Mouthfeel was light.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours an almost clear, pale yellow beer with a big white head. The aroma is fruit and yeast. The flavor is fruit and wheat. The palate is weak with notes of esters. Overall a good beer.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2010
Draft at Rembrant pub in Amsterdam. The aroma has a tun of cloves and coriander with a nice twang from the wheat. It tastes light and simple, yet refreshing. The cloves are present, yet not overpowering. Not bad at all.

jesperhammer (3407) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2010
15-JAN-2010, bottle @home, from Systembolaget i Bästad. Very very light in color with some haziness and high white head. Nice yeasty nose with the usual orange, banana stuff. Very fine and refreshing, but overall to thin in body.

Sdaniel90 (491) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle, 330ml. My first Witbier. Pours a rich golden colour, not unlike a German Kristallweizen, with a nice Belgian Head. Aroma is beautiful, earthy spices, herbs and a touch of lemon are present. Tastes like a Hefeweizen crossed with a Belgian Strong Ale, great combination. Will definitely buy again.

KyotoLefty (7369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2009
Bottle. Golden sparkling blonde color with a tall white head. Wheat percentage seems much less than an average wit. Like a well-balanced mix between a wit and a blonde. Fruity but quite dry. Tasty.
