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.

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.

Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 17, 2006
Bottled. Pours hazy greenish yellow with moderate white lasting head. Aroma of yeast, malt and citrus. Flavour of wheat malt, lemon, slight banana and spice (coriander). Short sour spicy finish. Not a full belgian witbier like the Hoegaarden Wit but tasty and refreshing.

maeib (8672) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2006
Bottled. A very hazy yellowy green coloured wit with a short-lived white head. The aroma has lemon and cream and spices. The taste is lemony, wheaty and yeasty with a little coriander. Not the fullest wit but still pleasantly tasty.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
Bottle. Quite a sweet and slightly overly yeasty witbier. Slight soapy coriander spicyness and lemony acidity. Too much sweetness. And also showed a touch of alcohol, which witbiers don’t normally show.

SHIG (3575) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 17, 2006
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.

thewolf (11177) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2006
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 Wit’s I’ve tasted. Not worse, just different.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2006
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.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2006
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.
