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.

armando629 (2405) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 6, 2008
The only one trappist white has a nice appearance: cloudy pale yellow liquid under a little stable head. Fine nose with yeast and fenolic aromas. The taste is complex with fruits, some grape and yeast. Good body

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2008
Draught at Old Bricks Inn, Jyväskylä. Hazy golden color with fluffy white head. Wheaty and grainy aroma with notes of coriander. Very wheaty dryish flavor with strong coriander note, hint of orange and herbs. Some woodiness and astringency in the mouthfeel. Too much coriander. Very basic drinkable wit.

asheft (2484) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2008
[bottle] Citrus, oak, banana, sour, sugar, base malt aroma. Almost clear dark yellow, very effervescent, maintaining a foamy, white top. Nice flavour that is very similar to a young Orval: woody and sweet, with plenty of floral and citrusy notes plus some white grape. Very subtle bitterness combines nicely with a large dose of carbonation. Dry, with a light to medium body. Very nice.

Defreni (2509) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
Flaske. Kæmpe skum på en klassisk witte. Desværre er den ikke meget bevendt klassiske dyder men i mindre mål, derfor meget skuffende.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2008
Bottle at Chaucer’s pub in London, ON- Pours the typical cloudy yellow with a good froth of white foam. Nice lacing with good retention. The aroma set me aback, as it surprisingly full of fresh aromatic hops and other leafy greens. Also present are good doses of pine and yeasty nuances with a follow up of orange peel and vanilla, maybe a touch of spice. The flavour profile is quite hoppy and citric, lots of bitterness, bubblegum, lots of fruit, very tasty. FInish is fruity citric bitterness, with lots of candy. Unexpected and pleasant!

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2008
Pale hazy yellow with a big white head. Wheat, clove, orange and apricot in a somewhat German aroma. Sweet and spicy flavour with fruity notes of a blonde or triple. Quite interesting and untraditional overall. Tasty enough, but give me a Hoegaarden instead please.

Bottle 33 cl. Pale, lightly cloudy and with a big nice white foam. Initial sweet and with a bitter, lightly sour finish. Aroma of citrus, wheat and orange. Light body and thin feel.
