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.

Pours cloudy copper golden with a decent head. Wheat aroma, not very strong. Taste of citrus and spices. Slight on the sour side. Small noticable bitterness lingering in the finish along with the sourness. Light bodied and slight watery. High carbonation.

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with tall white head. Aroma has light malt, wheat, citrus and notes of coriander. Taste is light malty with coriander and citrus, and quite lightbodied. Finish is semi-sweet yet dry.

mateuszk (2005) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow with nice white head. Aroma of wheat and spices, surprisingly not much coriander, more saisonish way. In taste sweet (too sweet for me) with wheat, light citrus, there is light coriander note too. Medium body, high carbonation, lightly sour finish. Not bad wit-ish beer.

sound67 (695) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle, 330ml. *** Colour: Hazy pale yellow. Huge, fluffy white head. *** Nose: Rather mild aroma of yeast, lemon, banana & spices. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, hardly watery. Moderate carbonation. *** Taste: Predominantly yeast at the outset, along with hints of spices & banana. Rather dry. Doesn’t change much through the middle to the finish. A lot of yeast. Aftertaste is lemony and yeasty. *** Impressions: Rather less distinct and characterful as Hoegaarden, but still typical of the witbier style (i.e. less sweet, less fruity, leaner than a German hefe). Very refreshing, but a bit one-dimensional.

ALIBALI (677) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
Nicht gut, viel von Garnichts. Gemessen an den Namen der Brauerei. Pseudoversuch dem Witbier mit plumper belgischer Süße ins Handwerk zu pfuschen. Wässrig und uninspiriert. 0,25cl/3,45 vom Hahn in der PASTA FABRIK, Groningen.

Kleurplaatje (135) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2016
Pours hazy golden with a rapidly diminishing white head. Malty and wheaty aroma. Definitely has something breadish. Quite fine. Tastewiste pretty Hefeweizen-like. This is not a Belgian White if you ask me. But tastewise, it is quite pleasant. Mildly sweet with some fresh fruity notes. Some citrus, some orange... Bits of coriander for a spicy kick. Aftertaste is somewhat bland, but it remains pretty fresh and no-nonsense. Great, approachable quencher that definitely has something to offer.

[backlog] 25-09-15 / bottle at Spiegelau Masterclass Tasting Frankfurt. Decent wit. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.5/5

Birra di frumento non male, bevibile e rinfrescante, lascia il classico retrogusto acidulo
