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.

Imponerande skumkrona i klass med Duvel. Riktigt behaglig, svalkande, silkesspinnande. Perfekt som törstsläckare, utan att vara smak- eller menlös. Kvalitativ veteöl, även om den med fördel hade kunnat lösgöra ett tyngre artilleri av smaker, uttryckt nyanserna med större emfas.

MikeKeller (913) - Kemi, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget labeled as La Trappe Wit. Pale yellow beer with white head. Very faint aroma. Flavor has yeast and some banana. Very one-dimensional. Light palate. Although I didn’t expect much from this I got even less.

pilsnerrogge (2655) - Finspång, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2009
Pale , hazy yellow colour. Big, creamy head. Yeasty and spicy citrus aroma. Thin mouth feel, sharp carbonation. Spicy flavour, lots of lemon zest. Probably a great summer drink, but now it’s November........

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2009
Flaske 0,33l kjøpt på Systembolaget i Kiruna og delt med Rune på Elsas Skibotn 31 Okt 09. Lys beige på farge. Høyt kremaktig skum som la seg etter noen minutter. Uklar. Syrlig citrus aroma med innslag av krydder. Smaken likeså. Litt mye kullsyre. Lang fruktig ettersmak av citrus. Tørr bitter avslutning. Forfriskende – og overhode ikke søt.

jaghana (4821) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 5, 2009
Bottle 33. Classic Witt beer with a hazy blanc colour and a big white head. Smell of citrus and soe astreingence can be detected, quite dry, aorma of agrumes. Less intresting than the other ales of La trappe.

17thfloor (2439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Really happy to find this on draft at Binny’s Southloop. Pours a very hazy but see-thru light straw yellow with a medium thin white sudsy fluff. Smells like a nice witte, fair amount of lemon, crisp, yeasty. Flavor is quite nice and true to a wit, some chalky bitterness, sharp lemon cookie, a bit watery though, yeasty aftertaste. Neat to see the Koningshoeven yeast character shine through in a wit, has the same type of sweetness also. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2009
Pale golden color with a big white head that stays around for a while and leaves nice lacings. Primarily wheat and white bread in the nose with notes of sweet fruits (mostly oranges) and mild hints of spices. Hints of medicinal phenols as well. The flavor is rather sweet, even for a witbier, with predominant notes of wheat, crackers, malts and sweet orange-like fruit notes. Restrained spicy aromas. The finish is also fairly sweet with a mild bitterness and clean fruit esters and medicinal phenols. The body is light and the beer is very easy to drink. All in all, not bad, but nothing spectacular either. Lacks some balance considering the sweetness. Bottle

33cl bottle poured into a tumbler. Cloudy yellow with a ton of creamy white head. Aroma is candy sugar, spice, citrus, yeast. Flavor is the same. Medium carbonation, light body. Finish is spice. A decent wit.

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!
