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.

Bullit (4029) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2007
Foamy white head, disappearing quite quickly. Sweet flavors and aroma. Nice aftertaste, one of the better white beers.

JK (4659) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2007
I carried this back from Brugge. Cloudy orange appearance. Aroma has loads of coriander and spice. Flavor is sweet wheat and citrus, but sweet citrus. More spices, and one of the most full bodied wits I have tried. Very well carbonated.

Skyview (5272) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Shared by joebrew and brewfiend. Pours a coppery amber brew with a thick fizzy white head. Excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of fruity bananas, prange peel, yeast, herbs and spices. Taste is fruity, some sour apple, medium body with fizz, and a little dry. Finish is a bit tannin and long. Pretty good.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Oxford. Cloudy apricot with a noisy cap of white that settles in snowy drifts. Lovely tart fruit aroma--one sniff lemon, then papaya, then muscat grapes. A generous aroma. Spritzy clean fruit flavor, golden raisins. Underlying malt sweetness, but this is mostly about esters. A lingering bit of tannin finish. Rather nice.

Lubiere (10549) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2007
A hazy blonde with a thin dissipating white head. A nice rosewater aroma, pears and bubblegum. In mouthm a light cloven mouth, with bubblegum, fruits, and light hopping. A classy light wit for the summer. Bieropholie private imports. Dégustation Trappiste I, March 9,2007.

piscator34 (2005) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 15, 2007
Light gold in colour with average carbonation and a slight bit of haze. Aromas of wheat malt, bubblegum, banana, and lemon. In the mouth, the wheat is still the major player, but some of the coriander and peppery spices start to show themselves. Some herbal and lemon character is also present. Perhaps a bit too sweet to start, but dries out a fair bit by the finish. Average stuff... a bit too much like a lightly spieced hefeweizen as opposed to a wit. Thanks to lubiere for the sample!

DruncanVeasey (7318) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2007
UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 Pretty typical orange peel and coriander aroma. Moderate haze. Citrussy fruit leaning towards spiced Blond/Tripel territory with a warming note of booze. Sourish, spritzy and slightly mildewy. So-so. (up-rate) Mellow peppery spritz, clove, lemon, biscuit, slight banana. Persistent foaming head. Like it.
