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.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 27, 2008
Tasted 22/11/2008. 330ml bottle from beerstore.co.nz. Hazy gold with a thin white head. Looks tired. Smells and tastes it too but has a nice fruitiness and peppery coriander spice that makes me think it would be a delicious alternative to ’the big un’ if you could get it fresh.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours surprisingly clear golden beer with a tall white head. The nose is of cork, melon, glue, oranges, coriander and banana - rather strong. Faintly watery body. Quite a lot of cork again in the taste which has notes of banana, orange, lemon, cloves and coriander. Sweet. Some melon sneaking in. This beer gets slightly cloying after a few sips. Acidic. Some lacework. Residual sugars accompanied by cork and coriander in the finish. Pleasant, complex but with a mediocre palate.

yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle. A semi-clear, golden, well-carbonated beer producing a dense, white head of moderate size. Banana dominates the aroma, but there’s also wheat, and a touch of spices. Some orange and lemon too. Somehow, it reminds me more of a german hefeweizen than of a witbier, and that impression continues in the flavor. It’s banana-dominated, with some spices and citrus, and also a wheatyness. Medium to full body, with a good effervescence. The finish continues in the same way as the initial flavor, and has a little bitterness added. Refreshing and easy to drink, though it might be a bit gassy in the long run. Not an outstanding beer, but good. (081019)

Cerveja degustada em setembro/08, Aroma apenas regular, presenças de banana, damascos, mel. Na taça, pouca presença de espuma, um dourado claro, não parece tão turva, pouco ou quase nenhuma presença e persistência da espuma. Sabor com toques de aveia, banana, um toque frutado de laranja, damascos, até pessego, pão. CERVEJA QUE NÃO PREENCHE A BOA, FICA DEVENDO NESTA PARTE, RETROGOSTO DE FERMENTO, POUCO DURADOURO. aCHEI Q FICOU DEVENDO PARA UMA CERVEJA DE TRIGO TRAPISTA.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle, from a shop in Brussels. Pours hazy looks like a typical wit. Aroma is very citrusy, with a little clove. Refreshing and lightly hoppy with some spice in the aftertaste.

andreic (53) - IRELAND - AUG 24, 2008
Bottle.Very pale yellow, slightly cloudy. White foamy head didn’t last. Grainy and fruity aroma. Tastes quite fruity/citrusy, and a little spicy. A nice wit. I think my bottle is quite out of date so its held up pretty well.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 14, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 750ml bottle. Hazy golden pour, short-lived head, predominantly honey and citrus on the nose, and similar on the palate, though with slightly more yeast. Very decent white beer.
