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.

Aroma tenue, maltato, con note di agrumi. Gusto tipico delle wit, citrico con note di coriandolo. Leggermente astringente. Schiuma abbondante, candida.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2008
Aroma is spicy(clove) wheat, yeast and banana? Opaque yellow, small short lived white head, pretty lace. Taste is soft wheat, lemon, spice is subdued. Light bodied, balanced, dry and refreshing. Good, somehow I expected a lot more/

Eructoblaster (3015) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with good carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with citrusy hints. Taste is well balanced but it lacks complexity. It ends with a decent yeasty/citrusy finish. Average Witte.

Maverick34 (2248) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2008
IBottled. thought this was an excellent witte. Murky pour with a smallish head at best, lots of lemon obviously and acidity. Pretty good I thought.

ekstedt (5435) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle (33 cl) at Delirium Café, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy golden, medium white head. Fruity, bisquity, slightly spicy, light notes of oranges and clove. Ok balance. Feels like a mixture between a belgian blond and a wit.

Fukito (738) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 20, 2008
Bottle, february 08. Slightly hazy shinny golden color with an effervescent carbonatation and a beige, bubbly white head. Spicy, yeasty aroma with some phenollic notes. Pleasant. Some pears notes too. Fruity, yeasty, spicy flavor. A cross between a golden ale and a phenollic heffe. Nice. Medium to light mouthfeel. Mild refreshing and tasty. Overall, a tasty, refrreshing spicy wit.

espenra (873) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2008
33cl bottle from a retailer in Belgium. Pours a hazy yellow head with foam that disappears fast. Tastes like a regular lager (pilsner). All in all, a decent witbier but nothing special.

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2008
Draught (Arendsnest, Amsterdam)
Pale yellow, thin head. Wheaty but also hoppy aroma. Soft mellow unmalted grain base. One of those ’blah’ wits, alas; I expected better from Trappe.

I must have gotten a bad bottle as this was little better than a drain pour. Lots of sediment, medicinal tasting. UGH
