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.

<b>Rated: 14.11.2008</b>
<b>Bottle brown, 750 ml</b>
<b>Appearance: </b>Pours bright, sunny, lemony, juicy, slightly honey like body colour. Body is hazy to murky in texture, carbonation is very lively and natural effervescence is very strong. Head is snowy white, very gentle, soft and pillowy, frothy deep in structure, there is also quite nice lacing. Head is medium in size but quite firm.
<b>Aroma: </b>Very nice complex spicy - fruity - wheaty composition. At front there is a kind of winy but soft, highly aromatic, inviting, warm and gentle aroma of bananas, lemon, lime, yeasts, butterscotch, milk, wildberries. Than comes some malty and wheaty background, essential and refreshing lime like hops, very flowery hoppyness. Really assertive and easily to catch aroma, on a one hand strong but not heavy on the other, some notes of wine grapes, whipped cream, vanilla, clove, cinamon and many other spices being nicely joined. Very refreshing and deep.
<b>Flavour: </b>Well balanced and mild in texture. Very mild and natural effervescence is dingling your palate, at front there are creamy - vanilla flavours with clove and mainly coriander, orange and lime peal, leavly not cheaply accidic, not too sweet, very ballanced in term of flavours, very distinctive, very soft on a one hand but very nicely accented and pronounced flavour on the other. Daugh, flowery - spicy hoppyness. Finish duration is long. The best Witbier (Belgian White) I’ve had so far. At finish also some fruits show off like lime, banana and orange.
<b>Palate: </b>Body is light, texture is quite smooth, carbonation on palate is lively, finish feel is mineral, soft, clean, highly aromatic in nose and bready, malty, wheaty with yeasts notes on palate.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 27, 2008
Tasted 22/11/2008. 330ml bottle from beerstore.co.nz. Hazy gold with a thin white head. Looks tired. Smells and tastes it too but has a nice fruitiness and peppery coriander spice that makes me think it would be a delicious alternative to ’the big un’ if you could get it fresh.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours surprisingly clear golden beer with a tall white head. The nose is of cork, melon, glue, oranges, coriander and banana - rather strong. Faintly watery body. Quite a lot of cork again in the taste which has notes of banana, orange, lemon, cloves and coriander. Sweet. Some melon sneaking in. This beer gets slightly cloying after a few sips. Acidic. Some lacework. Residual sugars accompanied by cork and coriander in the finish. Pleasant, complex but with a mediocre palate.

note666 (1157) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2008
bottle 300 ml. pale yellow, bit hazy colour. big white head. I can relate to the banana taste that yngwie calls it. dry aftertaste.

yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle. A semi-clear, golden, well-carbonated beer producing a dense, white head of moderate size. Banana dominates the aroma, but there’s also wheat, and a touch of spices. Some orange and lemon too. Somehow, it reminds me more of a german hefeweizen than of a witbier, and that impression continues in the flavor. It’s banana-dominated, with some spices and citrus, and also a wheatyness. Medium to full body, with a good effervescence. The finish continues in the same way as the initial flavor, and has a little bitterness added. Refreshing and easy to drink, though it might be a bit gassy in the long run. Not an outstanding beer, but good. (081019)
