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.

Thanks to Keith for the bottle! Poured slightly hazy straw golden with a tall, fizzy cap of white head. The aroma picked up soft toasted bananas, tangy wheat, and lemon zest.. bready sweetness supported, and gave it a soft overall impression despite the tangy character. The flavor found a pinch of honey along with the bready notes at the core, with tart lemon, wheat, and earthy character around.. finished sour with a bit of tacky malt. Light-medium bodied with rolling carbonation on the palate.. balance wasnít quite there, although it was refreshing in the end.

Clear yellow beer with a small head. Served in a "regular" trappist-glass, so that might be the reason for the bad score on appearance. Itís pretty soury, but it fades very rapidly.

Draught at TJís: Aroma of lemon, wheat, spices, and yeast. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of yeast, wheat, slight pepper, and slight Robitussin. Light to medium body. Lightly tingly, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, wheat, and spice finish.

A very clear white beer, not that much happening, think itís a little too watery. Still drinkable in many ways

This bottle did not pour any head at all. Little carbonation. There was no cloudiness at all. Aroma was terrible, the taste was only a little bit like what a Belgian White should taste like. It was drinkable, but thatís about it. Was something wrong with this bottle?

On tap A bit light for a witte, but clean and tasty. Basically reminiscient of Hoegaarden minus the amount of spices.

very clean, lack of spice. esters finally emerge as the brew warms to lend some redeeming value. quite bland otherwise.

Bottle. Tried as La Trappe witte.Cloudy with a big head. Some traces of citrus. Not my favourite style but found this quite pleasant and easy to drink.

On tap at The Raleigh Times. Poured a creamy yellow haze with a firm but sturdy head. Mildly sweet taste with hintws of honey, wheat bread, lemon zest. Soothing mouthfeel and finish.
