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.

Opalescent straw yellow colour with a fast fading white head. On the nose aromas of wheat, clove, bread and banana develops with a faint touch of citrus peel. Some effervescent texture, light bodied with light bready sweetness and a soft bitterness developping. Short finish, overall nice yet unspectecular.

Bottle at tap and tankard, sheffield. Very pale yellow ale with white head. Aroma is banana clove and some caramel. Taste is slightly peppery sweetness and very slight sourness. Prickly carb and thinnish body.

Un très beau nez complexe, épicé et fruité. Belle bulle explosive, longue finale ample sur l’amertume. Un Blanche très complexe.

Tried it from bottle and tap. From bottle I was not fond of it, no pronounced tastes. When I had it from the tap it was MUCH bettter. A fresh and rich taste, with a good mouthfeel and tasteful appearance in the original glass. Would recommend from tap.

Saphir-hopfen verleiht dem Bier ein Zitrusaroma. Schönes Sommerbier, aber nichts aussergewöhnliches, 5.5% alk

750ml cork bottle bought at Das Bier in Tai Kok Tsui.

Cloudy hazy light straw honey colour with dirt- like yeastsediments; One finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 1 minute; Very good lacing and zero carbonation; Fragrant and sweet aroma of light malt, with very strong honey, water chestnut, floral, molasses, yeast and faint lemon; Mid to light sweet taste of light malt, with fairly strong wheat, light tartness, molasses, yeast, very light lemon, shades of bitter hops and note of grass; light body, thin and quite crisp palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness and fair wheat presence in thin body. Only a touch of tartness. Strangely it’s molasses sweetness dominate in the absence of orange peels and coriander, with a nasty streak of Alkoholfrei. Has some lightly tasteful floral sweet vibe but doesn’t last long. Yeasty and very low hops rounds up an unorthodox impression. Hmmm… Hoppiness is light lemon in nose and taste. Bitterness is close to minimal, some hop taste can be felt but almost no bitterness at all, just sweet wheaty finish; Fairly dry aftertaste. Sweet and very easy to mouth.

Comments: I wonder what did La Trappe had in mind for this witbier? They probably wanna put their own stamp on this popular style with sweetness and flowery feel, but the end result is just sweet and hollow with nothing special to show for. Drinkable with lots of hand-waving, not recommended.

Bottle from Smatch, Brussels. The world’s first and only white Trappist ale that continues to ferment slightly after bottling. I’m a White Beer Lover and this is a great white beer

White and light beer, not a great body, really drinkable with a pleased light apple taste in aftertaste.
