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.

On tap, Beer Bistro. Looks great - medium yellow, medium fluffy head. Mild yeast and lemon in pleasing if not muted aroma. Light body, light but flavourful taste of yeast and lemon. Not complex, just very fresh and very well done - a pleasure to try on tap, thanks Beer Bistro!m

Hmmmm, my label looks nothing like the one pictured here. Same beer though, I think. Murky pale yellow, big dense head, poor retention. Yeasty and vaguely spicey. Wheaty and yeasty, not much else, falls kind of flat all around. Maybe I have an old bottle with an old label? There is no BBD so I cannot be certain.

Hazy light yellow, persistent head, light banana and citrus notes in the nose and flavour. Pretty solid, on the thin side with a little bit of spice and fructose.

pale yellow straw color, good white foam, citrus clove nose taste is sharp, nice and crisp, some good wit spices, good example of the style and nice to try on tap.

DerWeg (1482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
Draught at beerbistro - first keg ever sold on tap in Canada. Beautiful soft lemony note in aroma reflected in a mild citric acidity on the tongue. Fruity without being heavy. Definitely a delicate beer to be enjoyed as fresh as possible. More sassy than our own excellent Chambly. Somehow not wildly beyond the "ordinary" Wit yet a little bit itriguing. Stellar refresher. Thanks to Brian and Stephen for importing these Draught Trappist ales.

Draught at beerbistro. As jerc already noted in his review, I found this to be a solid textbook example of the style: hazy yellow with a large, fluffy white head; mild aroma of yeast, wheat, lemon and a hint of clove; soft mouthfeel; spot-on wit flavour that follows exactly what the aroma suggests you’ll be getting. VERY glad I had the chance to try this on draught, as I can see this being a beer that would suffer from a trip across the Atlantic in bottles.

Draft @ Beer Bistro in Toronto. Served up in its proper glass, its a hazy pastel yellow with a beautiful large foamy head. Moderate aroma of the standard wit beer components - lemon, and yeast are rather well balanced. Flavour is a similarly well implemented standard wit profile, I believe GregClow’s word is best: Textbook. Modest citrusy lemon and a pleasant wit yeastiness throughout it was exceptionally fresh, quaffable, and refreshing. Rather nice. Kudos to Beer Bistro for being the first to have this on tap in Canada.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 draft sold as La Trappe Witte - Pours cloudy yellow with a big, enduring head. It smells of yeast and citrus and has a similar taste along with a touch of spice. It’s light as a witbier should be without being watery and is simply a well done witte.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a large white head. Wheaty and yeast spiced aroma. Flavour semi dry wheat with a slight spice note towards the finish. There is a slight orange fruity note breaking a very wheaty flavour. So wheat dominant that it reminds me more of a German hefe-weizen than a Belgian wit bier. By far not the best within the style.

Brussels-07. I was not overly impressed by this wit. Pours a nice cloudy pale yellow with foamy head. Has nice spicy, yeasty aroma, but the found the beer overly sour to be great.
