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.

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2006
(30 cl bottel, gift from a friend from the Netherlands) Shady light yellow color, white head. Sour and wheat scent. Sweet but a bit thin taste. It lacks something. Low bitterness. Almost a minty aftertaste in the very back.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2006
Bottle: Wibier is a style I greaty wish to explore deeply. Subtle yet complex, light yet richly pleasing - at least when done well. Sadly, my experience of them so far has been largely dissapointing with only Hoegaarden providing a solid view of the possibilities. This one was another to add to the list of let downs.
Slightly hazy light gold with the obligatory bright white head. My suspicions were immediately aroused by the aroma - slightly fishy (sardines) cloves and banana over a weak wheat base. In the mouth this translates to a slight clove spice, warming alcohol presence, and a slightly thin, powdery sweetness. Compounding this was a cola-like large bubbled carbonation that detracted from any flavour possibilities and resulted in an annoyingly prickly mouthfeel. In reality there wasn’t much to say for this.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2006
Very light yellow with a big foamy head. Moderate corriander aroma. Big, strong lemon flavour without too much spice which is how I like it. Doesn’t have much of a finish and is a bit watery bit it tastes great.
