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.

Bottle at home. I don’t understand all of those average ratings. I think it’s a very nice and special beer. A bit sour, full body. Amazing taste in the mouth, nice flavor. I’m convinced, will drink this a lot more in the future!

adasko (946) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Bardzo przyjemny, lekko owocowy/cytrusowy, lekko słodowy, lekko stęchły aromat. Delikatne nuty kolendry. Świeży. Piwo nalało się niemal klarowne, bardzo jasne, słomkowe. Śnieżno biała, drobna piana, długo utrzymuje się niewielką warstwą. W smaku raczej słodowe, lekkie. Słodkie, z delikatną kwasowością. Bardzo przyjemne, bardzo orzeźwiające. Wysoko nasycone. Świetnie pijalne. Bardzo dobre piwo.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2015
Única blanca trapista. No filtrada y refermentada en botella. Típicas características en cuanto a aspecto (blanquecino, turbia y con mucha espuma blanca) aroma marcado a limón. Muy suave en boca, predominando el trigo, y un sabor seco cítrico pero no tan marcado como en el aroma, bastante contenido. También especias: cilantro. Bastante refrescante.

Un grand col de mousse blanche, une couleur très pâle, c’est une bière blanche légère, goût subtil de blé et d’agrumes, belle carbonisation par de petites bulles. 33Cl Vanuxeem

ContemplateBeer (1718) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Aroma: Wheat forward nose with light tartness; a little orange peel; some hop derived spiciness that reminds me of cloves. Appearance: Very pale, hazy, well carbonated yellow pour with a foamy white head that sticks around. Flavor: Wheat up front with still a touch of tartness; orange peel really kicks in as the flavor develops, leading to a lightly spicy, mostly dry finish. Palate: Medium body, thick texture, effervescent carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Among Witbiers I’ve had, only Hitachino White tops this. And, with my bottle being purchased at $2.99, this is much more affordable.
