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.

keanex (1478) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Hazy and milky golden body with a dense short head. Nice looking beer.
Aroma: Soft aroma of lemon, straw and clove.
Taste: Crisp and clean up front with hints of banana and lemon with a straw, clove and licorice finish.
Palate: Crisp and highly carbonated.
Overall: This is a mellow wit, not bold but cleanly brewed. I would like a little more fruity esters though. Nice beer.

Pours a hazy faint golden body with a thick head. Hoppy aroma and a round but a bit boring taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy yellow body, no head. Banana, wheat and yeast aroma. Sweet taste. Fizzy carbonation, thin to medium body. Not the best Wit.

Draft. Hazy yellow, a little lighter then a Weissen. Aroma: grains, light citrus. Taste is fresh grains, salty. Very light citrus at the end. Little evolution.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Netshop enjoyed at home
Pours straw yellow, very hazy, big white head. Smell of orange zest, citrus, hints of herbs, yeast esters and wheat. Moderate sweet, distinct citrus flavor, yeast fruityness, herbal flavors - very drinkable and refreshing. Light bitter, zesty finish. Very very nice belgian wit

nez très floral, anisé, sympa, bouche plus sur la levure et le citron, décevante derrière le nez.
