Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a very nice white head, some lacing. Very spicy, fruity aroma with lemon peel, orange and banana. Flavour is lightly dry, acidic and very spicy with lemon peel, orange and hint of banana. Light bodied, but with a nice refreshing carbonation. Would be perfect in the summer!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden color with a huge head. Good lacing. Sediment everywhere. Smell and taste are bananas, yeast, lemon, and the tang of pineapple. A little high on carbonation but not annoying. This is my first witbier so I can’t wait to compare this to others.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, unclear white/yellow colour with quit stable white head. Smell: very nice fruity! Taste: typical for a witbier and not so special. Notes from coriander, sweet, grainy, lemon. Overall not bad but a bit too watery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy appearance of the liquid, aroma of spices and citrus. The taste reminded very much of a Belgian witbier, dry with hints of caramel and some citrus and yeast. Not so much spices as in a Belgian witbier. Light body and slightly thin feeling. Still a nice thirst quencher but are not directly complex

The "trappist" is like mix of trappist and a wit!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle (exp 4/10) labelled "La Trappe Witte Trappist" from First Choice Liquor Stores. Pours clear effervescent pale yellow with an ample bubbly loose white head that lasts. Aromas of lemon citrus and bready wheat malts. Tastes similar with a hint of bananas in the finish. Lively spritzy mouthfeel. A simpler wit than Hoegaarden (no curacao or coriander spices) but decent nonetheless and usually cheaper to buy in Australia.
