COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The worldís 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 summerís day that also makes for a delicious drink at any other time of the year.

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2008
a nice wit with a fizzy body and a rocky head. aroma is spicy with coriander and orange dominating. the spices plays a huge part in the flavour along with the sweet wheat and yeast. quite good

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2008 ...bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with a decent white head that fades to a ring. Some citrus and corriander on the nose, with wheat malt. Flavors of wheat, yeast, citrus, with some slight corriander and clove notes in the background. Clean, medium bodied with a pure taste.Finishes slightly bitter and spicy with a tiny hint of alcohol when it warms. Overall, a nice well balanced trappist wit.

Marko (4030) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle shared with and courtesy of heavy (thanks!)
A lightly gilded hazy yellow body with a big thick head that collapsed at a medium pace. A distinct aroma of lemon and yeah, sea water. Eh. The taste isnít exactly brilliant either. Lemon pith, cork (what the...), some weak wheat malt and sweetness. Drinkable but utterly unimpressive. Didnít find it as disgusting as heavy did but itís definitely not one of the better Wits Iíve had.

heavy (2151) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 26, 2008
0.33 l bottle from belgianshop.com. Poured pale yellow body with medium head. Aroma of sea water! So repulsive, well, there are other things here like faint yeasty banana, but that salt overwhelms all. Flavor is watery, some yeasty notes, definitely not repulsive as aroma as salt is not felt at all, but boring. Finish is therefore very short. Hm...my first salty beer and I didnít like it :) will rerate a fresh one when it comes in my hands once, but I doubt itís a good wit anyway.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle. Hazy yellow gold with a large foam. Aromas are cream and vanilla with banana. Quite sweet with soft spices. Flavours are creamy with some caramel. Banana and yeast follow with slightly tart citrus. Wheat on the finish and quite dry. Quite a lot of alcohol on the aftertaste.

Watery and slightly sour, it didnít go down well with me. Perhaps I was also in a bad mood wilst drinking it. Probably wouldnít ever drink it again.

Grossa delusione per questa blanche di Koningshoeven; in effetti il mio giudizio su questo produttore non migliora man mano che vado avanti ad assaggiare le sue proposte. Líaroma Ť spento, il sapore ha un tono leggero di coriandolo ma poi mostra un sapore metallico/alcolico tipicamente LaTrappe che si addice cosž male ad una wit, ma cosž male, che fa venir voglia di svuotare il bicchiere altrove che nel proprio gargaroz.
