2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small bottle as "La Trappe Witte Trappist". Cloudy straw yellow body with a medium head. Typical wit aroma with wheat and citric notes. Thin body but this seems to be the norm with this style. Slightly watery wheaty taste with some citric sourness. Plain and average witbier but I did expect much more from a Trappist brewery.

Texture is a bit watery, light bodied with soft carbonation

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 On tap in Greenville, SC.
Very large, foamy, off-white head over a sparkling amber body.
Heavily spiced banana bread in the nose.
Flavor: Spicy to the point of medicinal, but better than that description sounds. Lingering aftertaste of mixed spices and faint wheat.
Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear straw-like yellow color. Solid and lasting white head. Intense wheaty-malty scent with aromas of tropical fruits, lemon and orange zest, herbs (ginger, coriander, cloves) and grains. Fruitiness dominates in its taste, followed by spiciness of mentioned herbs. Kind of bitter aftertaste. Very hoppy one for a "witbier", but interesting nonetheless.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
