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.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a huge foamy pure white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat is dominating with some very subtle coriander. Taste is also dominated by wheat with some limited spices and yeast characteristic being noticeable. Body is quite light and even if label mention that this beer is not filtrated I am guessing that it is somewhat filtrated. Interesting an refreshing but really lacking something to make this a great beer.

Marsiblursi (3005) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 (Bottle) Pours light yellow/golden. Big white head. Strong sweet banana and citric aroma with some spices, cloves and allspice. Bubbelgum-ish and a thouch of candy. Some green herbs and maybe a tiny hint of violet. Sweet flavour with banana skids and a light spicy backbone. A small touch of dry bitterness in the finish with a sting of citric sourness. A bit salty. Small body.

(Bottle, BB 10-2007) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of musty basement, wheat grain dust, and lemon. Flavor of lemon, malt, and wheat.

Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Straw, cloudy, nice, white head. Flavour, well I admit that La Trappe has a very, special place in my heart, I simply like their beers!! This one is Ok, but not among the best, though. It has sweetness, is refreshing and light with notes of coriander and citrus. It’s not very wheaty, but easy to drink.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2007
0.33l bottle at home. Hazy yellow with white head that vanished quickly. Very light aroma and I couldn’t define anything. Maybe some lemon. Taste is refreshing, lemony with some spice.

Muggus69 (1199) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2006
Found a 330ml bottle of this, serving it slightly chilled. Aroma reminds me of lemon rind, a bit grassy too with a hint of banana and spice. Looks nice enough with a reasonably clean pale straw body and fluffy white head. Flavour is quite light and delicate, to say the least. Can taste some banana, and clove like spicyness, with some sour citrus towards the finish. Mouthfeel is quite lively. Seems refreshing, maybe not as flavoursome as i’d hoped.

Dredd (689) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2006
Quite a pleasant and acceptable wheat beer. The aroma is a bit weak and the head retention a bit poor for this style, but the flavours of banana, citrus and cloves. Perhaps not as good as the legendary Hoegaarden, but still good for this style.

Bottle at home. I don’t understand all of those average ratings. I think it’s a very nice and special beer. A bit sour, full body. Amazing taste in the mouth, nice flavor. I’m convinced, will drink this a lot more in the future!

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 Bottle, from Bilka Supermarket, Copenhagen. Lousy witbier. The aroma is faint sour with only a little wheat. The flavor is also faint sour with a little wheat, but now with yeast, too. The palate is dissapointing, and feels like foumy air in the mouth. It is very watery, too. The worst beer brewed with wheat, I have ever had. Seems like all of you others have had better experiences with this beer, so maybe something was wrong with my specimen.
