COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The worldís 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 summerís day that also makes for a delicious drink at any other time of the year.

Golden amber with slight orange haze, bubbly white head. Orange citrus smell of sweet hops. Citrus plan beer flavor with average finish. Did have a light tingle ending.

Bottle. Hazy pale ywllow with thick white head. Aromas of berries, banana and lemons. Surprisingly sour, not sweet at all. The taste has tones of lemon and strawberries. Different from other Witís Iíve tasted. Not worse, just different.

Pale straw color - slightly hazy. Aroma is a bit fruity. Clean and quenching - flavors of lemons, what malts and slight hint of peppery spice. Very nice.

Hazy blond color with a very foamy head. Wheat and fruity, sweet aromas. Tart, with a good malt body, some acidity and a long vanilla finish. Light and clean.

Bottle. Small head with short duration. Pale yellow color. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is fruity and just the right amount of citrus.

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2006
Pretty much faultless Belgian white out of the Netherlands. A surfeit of poor Australian whites has turned me off the style, but this is the real deal. Poured a translucent pale gold with a tall, enduring head. The aroma is so bright and fresh that it reached me long before I sniffed - very appetising. Very much to style - bananas, cloves, yeast - yum yum. Thin in the body, as you would expect. Soft carbonation. Very smooth flavour profile - banana, dusty hops and a squeeze of lemon in a mild sourish finish. Pulls up a bit short but itís quenching. (30cl bottle, IBS Perth, bb Nov 2006)

balesjas (41) - Huntington Woods, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Pours a darker gold than most trippels. Has a sharper taste than most, but it has the usual sweetness at the attack. The finish is long and dry, and the beer is very aromatic. You can smell this one across the room.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2006
Gold blond colour, large white head. Very herby aroma, sharp. Taste is also sharp, finishing in with some bitter touches and a dru malty ending. Not bad.

ALLOVATE (2383) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2006
From a style I donít quite favour comes a version that agrees with me through its subtlety, how odd!! Tasted from the bottle and poured into a stumpy tulip glass, chilled from the fridge. Pale, pastel wheat yellow, cloudy, with an immense head forming off the pour- rocky, dense and white as snow- and persistent until the end to lace thin streams down the glass. Generous, spicy and zesty, lemon and orange peel nose with lighter, softer notes of banana and pears. Tart, fresh and very clean in feel and taste in the mouth. Rather sour with a predominant wheat flavour overlaying notes of lemons, banana and sherbet to slip passed the tonsils with frightening ease. Light spicy, clove-like note comes in late into drinking. Light bodied and rather soft in carbonation with a finish that becomes dry and shows little length, but remains fresh and clean without becoming gammy. This was a pleasant summer quencher that besides showing similar traits to all other Witís, just had that extra something to push it over the edge. Not bad at all!!! (30cL, BBE 11/06, Intíl Beer Shop, W. Leederville)
