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.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 26, 2008
0.33 l bottle from belgianshop.com. Poured pale yellow body with medium head. Aroma of sea water! So repulsive, well, there are other things here like faint yeasty banana, but that salt overwhelms all. Flavor is watery, some yeasty notes, definitely not repulsive as aroma as salt is not felt at all, but boring. Finish is therefore very short. Hm...my first salty beer and I didn’t like it :) will rerate a fresh one when it comes in my hands once, but I doubt it’s a good wit anyway.

leaparsons (8701) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle. Hazy yellow gold with a large foam. Aromas are cream and vanilla with banana. Quite sweet with soft spices. Flavours are creamy with some caramel. Banana and yeast follow with slightly tart citrus. Wheat on the finish and quite dry. Quite a lot of alcohol on the aftertaste.

Watery and slightly sour, it didn’t go down well with me. Perhaps I was also in a bad mood wilst drinking it. Probably wouldn’t ever drink it again.

Grossa delusione per questa blanche di Koningshoeven; in effetti il mio giudizio su questo produttore non migliora man mano che vado avanti ad assaggiare le sue proposte. L’aroma è spento, il sapore ha un tono leggero di coriandolo ma poi mostra un sapore metallico/alcolico tipicamente LaTrappe che si addice così male ad una wit, ma così male, che fa venir voglia di svuotare il bicchiere altrove che nel proprio gargaroz.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2008
A very hazy and a very yellow colored beer, with a very white foamy head. The aroma is at firt sour as a geuze, but it’s also some sweet with coriander. The taste is light sour with some spicey notes. It has a little watery flavour. But at all not a bad white beer. I am not a white beer lover.

Plovmand (6841) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big longlasting white head. Aroma of coriander, orange, banana og ctric fruit but I also catch some metallic thing. A little overcarbonated to my taste. Flavour is citric and somehow vinous and the alcohol is more up front than in other belgian whites I have had. Still a good brew though.

iosonomarco (41) - Milano, ITALY - APR 16, 2008
Aroma tenue, maltato, con note di agrumi. Gusto tipico delle wit, citrico con note di coriandolo. Leggermente astringente. Schiuma abbondante, candida.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2008
Aroma is spicy(clove) wheat, yeast and banana? Opaque yellow, small short lived white head, pretty lace. Taste is soft wheat, lemon, spice is subdued. Light bodied, balanced, dry and refreshing. Good, somehow I expected a lot more/

Eructoblaster (3288) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with good carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with citrusy hints. Taste is well balanced but it lacks complexity. It ends with a decent yeasty/citrusy finish. Average Witte.

IBottled. thought this was an excellent witte. Murky pour with a smallish head at best, lots of lemon obviously and acidity. Pretty good I thought.
