3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle (exp 4/10) labelled "La Trappe Witte Trappist" from First Choice Liquor Stores. Pours clear effervescent pale yellow with an ample bubbly loose white head that lasts. Aromas of lemon citrus and bready wheat malts. Tastes similar with a hint of bananas in the finish. Lively spritzy mouthfeel. A simpler wit than Hoegaarden (no curacao or coriander spices) but decent nonetheless and usually cheaper to buy in Australia.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Cheeky Monk in Denver. Wow, underrated beer! Great hazy orangish-blond appearance with a huge, lasting creamy white head and great lacing. Aroma is wheat, yeast, citrus, banana, and coriander. Flavor is pale malt and wheat, yeast, coriander and other spices, orange peel, banana, and clove. A bit sweet, but not too much. Palate is smooth and fairly light with soft carbonation. High drinkability. A great witbier!

I’m really more of a bavarian weat beer kind of guy, minus the lederhosen. There have to be something extra in a wit to make me smile. Unfortinately this one don’t have that extra to it. While being very refreshing, it’s not much more than that.

330ml bottle. Mountain of deep snow white foam atop a pale opaque light honey coloured base. Aromas of citrus and cloves. Sweet yeasty notes come through with a lively mouthfeel and a sweet zestiness. A little light but substantial enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2009 It poured a hazy golden liquid with a huge white foam that left allot of lacing. I like the look of these kinds of beer, maybe it could have been a bit more hazy but that’s getting a bit picky.
It had a strong and fresh smell of yeast, coriander and foam banana. It was quite fresh and nice, nothing really to complain about.
The initial mouthfeel was a bit stingy with lots of carbonation. After swirling it around a bit it got better and the flavours started to come out. The first I noticed was the yeast, it was present on the first sip but after a while the coriander and foam banana started to come out. There was also some sweetness. The body was medium thick and I would have actually prefered it a bit thicker as it became a bit watery after a while.
Overall a nice beer and I think it would be better during a hot summer day.
