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 33 CL. Look: hazy bright golden, white smallish frothy to creamy head. Aroma: blond fruit perfume, flowery, a bit spicy/yeasty, white toasted bread. Not much traditional bitter orange or coriander. Taste:delicate blond fruit bitterness, with character (that tart and fruity wheat), toasted bread,

A witbier shifted well towards the regular belgian blonds.

Bottle 033 @ home. Pours light yellow and cloudy, with excellent lacing and full lasting white head. Just like Belgian Wit must be. Aroma is fresh and spicy, light malt, wheat, herbas and citrus. Taste is somehow sweet with tart citrus notes, herbs and yeast. Light body, lively carbonation. I like this style and it’s not bad, but I miss something more.

Alengrin (1801) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
The only witbier in the world that can carry the honorary title of ’trappist’. Tasted under the old label. Pale yellowish blonde colour, less hazy than expected, with snow white, thinnish head. Thin and somewhat superficial character, wheaty and restrainedly fruity, some spiciness but rather watery finish. Too thin to be a good witbier but thirst quenching alright.

Linnas25 (4) - - SEP 13, 2014 does not count
Fruity aroma, very pale beer that looks like a lemon juice and looks little foggy, taste is rather light and not hop bitter at all, light body. Great for summer evenings and would try again.

tfredvik (1134) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2014
Cloudy and opaque medium yellow body, with a huge, white, very long-lived head that laces the glass excellently. Strong, fruity and spicy aroma of citrus, lemon, flowers, spices, Belgian yeast and pale malts. Fairly strong flavour that follows the aroma. Light sweet and light bitter finish that is a bit too short and watery. Light, crisp and moderate dry on the palate. A good one.

Sophisticated, well balanced and very delicious beer. Tastes are in very good balance. Fruity, but what fruit? Apricot, grapes and red polish ida apple. Won’t let you down. From tap in Pullman, Helsinki.
