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.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a pale yellow with a big white head of foam. The aroma is lightly spicy and a little citrusy. Some wheat notes as well. Moderate bitterness in the taste. Light in body and medium carbonation.

Een heerlijk verfrissende trappist. Rijker van smaak dan hefeweizener. Duidelijke gistsmaak LT aanwezig. Mooie schuimkop.

on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy straw color, with a white head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is wheat and malt that adds fizz and spiced banana on the swallow, with sweet bursting through until light bittering pulls things into balance at the end. A well-balanced, easy drinking brew.

I liked this wit. Really crisp and refreshing. Pours a light straw yellow with a layer of pure white head. Aroma is a bit spicy with a grassy and citrus hop. Nice and refreshing

BarryKonrad (107) - NORWAY - APR 15, 2015
Bottle from vinmonopolet, Dombaas, Norway. Pours light golden with a thin white head that lasts out the session. Slightly hazy with minimal carbonation. On the nose there is grass, wheat and spices. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is malty, with some spicy notes. Mildly dry finish. Decent, easy to drink, would be a great session beer.

Hazy lemon yellow. Large white head. Intense aromas of lemon curd, pie and sesame. Fresh and fizzy. Medium to full body. Long finish with hints of banana sweets. Best witbier so far.

33cl bottle@home in tall glass@approx 7 degrees C. Pours unclear light yellow with massive white head with great retention. Fruity, citrussy aroma with touches of yeast and bread. Semi-sweet taste not unlike pilsener but with a clear wit taste. Pleasant though a bit watery palate with a clear malty, yeasty, bitter aftertaste which is distinctive in a positive way. Will try again on a hot summers day....may that be soon!
