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.

[856-20071127] Tap @ Beer Bistro (Toronto, ON). Sweet banana wheat yeast aroma. Hazy, pale yellow white body with a big long-creamy white head. Sweet banana wheat continues in the flavour with a hint of lemon finish. Light body has nice finish. Very nicely balanced, repeatable and in excellent condition.

thebeertourist (4757) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2007
On tap at ’t Arendsnest. Hazy pale yellow with a small head. Fruity aroma with clove and coriander- quite typical of a wit. Good fruity flavours blending with well-balanced spiciness. Dry finish. Grainy texture, almost a bit chewy. A well-balanced and harmonious wit.

gam (3167) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2007
Misty pour of straw like colour led me to a pleasant aroma of tropical vines and a taste of pleasant lime and lemon like citrus flavour, a fair finish of good thirst quenching sweet bitter dryness.

blankboy (5950) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2007
Draught at beerbistro. Pours a hazy yellow with a large mostly-lasting fluffy white head. Somewhat mild aroma reminds me of a banana creamsickle along with yeast and citrus. Flavour’s pleasant and quite easy to drink -- wheat, yeast, banana and light spices. Average bodied. It could use a tad more flavour but it’s still a nice version of the style.
