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.

Batavi (146) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
Uitgeschonken in La Trappe bokaal, bleek lichtgeel troebel bier met een witte medium hoge schuimkraag die na een paar minuten wegtrekt, levendige carbonatie in het glas. Frisse citrus geur van aromatische hopsoorten. Eenvoudig en verfrissend smaakpallet met herkenbare La Trappe gistcultuur, met tonen van citroen, limoen, sinaasappel, brooddeeg en bloemige tonen. De afdronk is licht bitter en zacht droog met wederom een finish van citrusfruit. Lekker witbier van La Trappe met een eenvoudige maar verfrissende smaak, precies wat je zoekt in een goed witbier, geen koriander of sinaasappel schillen toegevoegd zoals in de Hoegaarden, maar die mis je niet, er zitten meer dan voldoende citrus en kruidige smaken in dit bier, door de gebuikte hopsoorten. Deze Witte Trappist is gebalanceerd, zuiver en verfrissend door zijn eenvoud. Een lekker zomerbier en een stijl die uniek is voor een Trappist.

Not bad as some sort of style of a wheat beer. As a wit, it seems to be missing some of the traditional qualities that make this beer so interesting and pleasurable as a type. The use of just these ingredients to yield the traditional results doesn’t quite cut it. Still not a bad brew.

bartzluke (331) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 21, 2015
.33l pour from refrigerated bottle into a pils glass on a hot summer day in Vienna. A moderate pour produced a big fizzy white head with fairly short retention. The beer is a light gold, a bit hazy, and moderate evident carbonation. The body is light and very pleasant. Smooth on the touch with a kiss of carbonation. Nose is citrus, a little floral, a little wheat. The taste is similar. Pretty mellow overall, but a little wheaty tanginess in the middle and some nice citrus throughout. A low-key, refreshing beer.

markschiedon (360) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2015
Drinking from tap. In the aroma citrus, banana, yeast, grains. The unclear yellow beer has a large white head. A bit sour, citrus, a session beer. Medium carbonated.

lightly hazy yellow colour, big creamy white head. Aroma is banana, wheat, spices and yeast. Flavour is wheat, spices, some mild fruits and yeast. Excellent balance, and a really good witbier.

Niets mis mee. Eén van de betere witbieren, vind ik. Iets steviger van smaak dan een Wieckse of Hoegaarden bijvoorbeeld.

Icedwarf (720) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2015
Licht troebel geel bier met schuim. Smaak is friszuur, fruitig echter is wat waterig en niet krachtig van smaak. Valt tegen wat mij betreft.

Diabobale (289) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JUL 12, 2015
Birra prossima alla scadenza, ma nonostante tutto non malvagia. Colore paglierino molto opalescente ma pulito e senza residui, cappello di schiuma bianchissima, finissima e persistente, con bollicine non proprio fini che accompagnano l’occhio al primo sorso. Al naso buone le note di buccia di arancia amara, forse un po’ smorzate, e del coriandolo non invasivo. Al palato ben carbonata e con corpo leggerissimo. Al gusto crosta di pane, arancia e spezie si accompagnano ad una tenue acidità. Amaro da luppolo assente, buono invece quello della buccia d’arancia.
