2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light straw color with a nice white quick falling head.
Aroma is traditional wheat, with citrus, spices (mostly coriander).
The beer is lively on the palate, a bit thin and watery. Finishes off with some spices and then some low bitterness.
An ok, beer, but my least favorite of the LaTrappe beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle@home: hazy yellow with white bubbly head that doesn’t last long, typical but weak witbeer flavours, heavy on wheat, some yeast, spices (coriander?) & citrus, kind of thin & watery, dry end, plety carbonation, I am not impressed by this one & frankly I would pick Hoegaarden over this one, only witbier trappist but if this is any indication, don’t know if we need more, nowhere near the level of the other trappists that I have tried so far, sold as La Trappe Witbeer in Belgium

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[3/7/11] Draught at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Hazy pale golden. Aroma of wheat, pleasant fruit esters and some yeast. Sweetish fruity flavor with a bit of spiciness, especially towards the drier finish. A good thirst-quenching Witbier. A bit like a German Hefeweizen.
