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.

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 wasn’t 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. It’s pretty soury, but it fades very rapidly.

A very clear white beer, not that much happening, think it’s 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 that’s about it. Was something wrong with this bottle?

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.
