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.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2006
Medium-sized white frothy head. Dense with nice laces. Pale yellowish-golden body, slightly hazy. Aroma is citrus, banana and spices. Also notes of vanilla and sweet bubblegum. Spicy flavor with a candysugar kind of sweetness. A nice bitter finish makes this a well balanced witbier.

Dedollewaitor (13913) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
Unclear yellow/goldenwith quick disappearing white head. Aroma of yeast (wheat especielly) & fruit. Taste of spices. Medium filling to watery texture. Medium carbonation. (normally a "wit" has a more lively carbonation.) This is more like a Belgian blonde. Little sourness. Pleasant dry finish. Could use a hoppy bite though.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2006
300 ml bottle. Light white golden with a slight haze. Tall creamy white head that sticks to the glass. Cloves, citrus, noteably lemon, and wheat yeast notes. Aroma is more like a Bavarian weissbier than a witbier. Banana, coriander and crisp wheaty and yeasty flavours. Delicious.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2006
Medium white head over light hazy yellow body. Citrusy banana aroma with a touch of yeast, flour, and coriander. Taste is coriander, lemon, and some banana. Very refreshing, but not terribly interesting. (0.3l bottle.)

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 What a Wit! Hazy yellow with fizzy, popping white head. Spicy lemon and banana hit the nose straight away, though gently. Yeasty flavour with a sour kick and a bitter finish. Heavy citrus, banana, nut and spice make it a party. No longer a true trappist, but the quality is preserved. A regular in my fridge and a favourite indeed. Much enjoyed from draught while in The Dam.
