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.

Le liquide a une couleur jaune paille. Un léger voile est observable. Une grosse tête mousseuse se retire rapidement sans laisser de traces. Le nez et la bouche perçoivent des effluves de levure et de coriandre avec des notes de pain. Mince en bouche, légèrement crémeuse avec une effervescence propre à une witbier. La finale est fade, pratiquement sans goût. Bière commerciale ou authentique bière trappiste?

33cl bottle from the brewery. Hazy light blond with a very good white head. The aroma has a touch of sharp rotting fruit and some citrus and spicy notes. Something seems a little off about it. The flavor is a pretty standard mix of corriander that almost gives a celery note, and some citrusy sweetness. Finishes a little vegetal. Light bodied and smooth and creamy. Just smells and tastes a little off, though it’s innocuous enough to still finish. Definitely not a great wit.

Maistu (4) - USA - NOV 11, 2010 does not count
Ottimi odori di mais, scarso carattere nel palato e poco retrogusto. Deludente, amiotrofica parere.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Poured a barely hazy straw with a healthy, white head that leaves nice layered lace. Aroma is lemon, grain, overripe banana. Taste is creamy, lots of grain, little to no spicing whatsoever with very little yeast character. Almost out of category for Belgian witbier and more just run of the mill blonde.

TET (2540) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2010
Cloudy, golden beer with medium and white head. Aroma is pleasant, fruits, coriander, perries, yeast and some lemon. Flavour is fruity, slightly aromatic and medium spicyness; quite nice flavour, moderate flavour and not like attacking witbier. Nice to drink with balanced carbonation. Pleasant, smooth witbier, fruityness with balanced spicyness.

sinte (499) - Udine, ITALY - SEP 30, 2010
Bottle 0.33 L. Very pale yellow, hazy body, with an large, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with a good lacing. Moderate-to-heavy hoppy (citrus) and malty (cereals) aroma; notes of spices (maybe coriander). Moderate-to-heavy sweet malty flavour with a strong sour (yeasty) note. Light-to-medium body with a oily texture; lively carbonation; astringency in the finish. Not bad, even if with a strong acidic note.

Abio (1845) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours out very light coloured yellow, a bit cloudy. Nice big white head, but colapses a bit to quick. Sticks good to the glass. Smell is wheat, citrus and koriander/spices. Not bad. Watery taste, citrus, lots of wheat, yeast and some spices. Not really good, but drinkeable on a hot summerday for sure.
