3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at ’t Arendsnest. Hazy pale yellow with a small head. Fruity aroma with clove and coriander- quite typical of a wit. Good fruity flavours blending with well-balanced spiciness. Dry finish. Grainy texture, almost a bit chewy. A well-balanced and harmonious wit.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Misty pour of straw like colour led me to a pleasant aroma of tropical vines and a taste of pleasant lime and lemon like citrus flavour, a fair finish of good thirst quenching sweet bitter dryness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at beerbistro. Pours a hazy yellow with a large mostly-lasting fluffy white head. Somewhat mild aroma reminds me of a banana creamsickle along with yeast and citrus. Flavour’s pleasant and quite easy to drink -- wheat, yeast, banana and light spices. Average bodied. It could use a tad more flavour but it’s still a nice version of the style.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a big but fastfading head. Smell is typically white, citrus and yeast. Taste is also very standard for a white, citrus, lots of yeast, some cinnamon and some wheat. A standard white, nothing groundbreaking

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, Beer Bistro. Looks great - medium yellow, medium fluffy head. Mild yeast and lemon in pleasing if not muted aroma. Light body, light but flavourful taste of yeast and lemon. Not complex, just very fresh and very well done - a pleasure to try on tap, thanks Beer Bistro!m

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hmmmm, my label looks nothing like the one pictured here. Same beer though, I think. Murky pale yellow, big dense head, poor retention. Yeasty and vaguely spicey. Wheaty and yeasty, not much else, falls kind of flat all around. Maybe I have an old bottle with an old label? There is no BBD so I cannot be certain.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy light yellow, persistent head, light banana and citrus notes in the nose and flavour. Pretty solid, on the thin side with a little bit of spice and fructose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pale yellow straw color, good white foam, citrus clove nose taste is sharp, nice and crisp, some good wit spices, good example of the style and nice to try on tap.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at beerbistro - first keg ever sold on tap in Canada. Beautiful soft lemony note in aroma reflected in a mild citric acidity on the tongue. Fruity without being heavy. Definitely a delicate beer to be enjoyed as fresh as possible. More sassy than our own excellent Chambly. Somehow not wildly beyond the "ordinary" Wit yet a little bit itriguing. Stellar refresher. Thanks to Brian and Stephen for importing these Draught Trappist ales.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at beerbistro. As jerc already noted in his review, I found this to be a solid textbook example of the style: hazy yellow with a large, fluffy white head; mild aroma of yeast, wheat, lemon and a hint of clove; soft mouthfeel; spot-on wit flavour that follows exactly what the aroma suggests you’ll be getting. VERY glad I had the chance to try this on draught, as I can see this being a beer that would suffer from a trip across the Atlantic in bottles.
