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.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 10, 2007
33 cl bottle, from Monastery gift shop just outside Cadubec en Caux, France. Pours mostly clear yellowish orange with a huge fluffy white head and abundant bubble streams from the bottom of the glass. Citrus, wheaty aroma with yeast and spice accompanied by a somewhat pungent, almost mildewy note which brought the score down a bit. Tart and refreshing flavor, wheaty cereal grains, bolstered by more citrus and spice. Light to medium body and crispy-tingly carbonation. Not bad.

Rune (9231) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2007
330ml bottle as La Trappe Witte Trappist purchased at The Fine Food store, Kastrup airport. Rocky white foam fading into a filmy layer. Hazy, orange body. Fresh aroma with vagues notes of cloves. Candy sweet taste with late banana flavours. Very average for its style (Rating #1004, 04.08.2007)

kapusta (88) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Bought this in Tilburg as La Trappe Witte. Cloudy light golden body with a large white head. Rather weak in terms of my expectations. Not a whole lot of flavor, slight citrus/spice, but not enough. I would have liked more sweet melon/orange flavors, but this was really lacking in that department. Moderate alcohol content for the style, and adequate "astringent" qualities from the grains, but that was it.

garthicus (2786) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 9, 2007
Bottle, Large head, hazyish hue with a fruity-yeasty aroma, fairly light tasting with an enjoyably fruity finish, very much a summer beer. Enjoyable.

estoves2 (98) - SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2007
Pale hazy golden body, very light almost cider like. A thick fizzi head that disapears fast. Aroma is weak of banana and spices. Flavor of banana and little wheat and spices. Little cidery. Palate is thin but sparkling.

madquacker (1071) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2007
Pours a hazy gold with banana aromas. A mildly flavoured wit bier which is very nicely balanced. Very natural tasting and not over the top. Recommended.

mpeve (28) - Bolwarra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2007
Light aroma for a Witbier. Thick white head that settled quickly.A well balanced, medium bodied beer with notes of bubblegum. An easy drinking drop for summer

BelgianBeerGal (3373) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 33cL bottle. It was a nice witbier, nothing remarkable, but obviously strange coming from La Trappe which I typically associate with the more typical strong ales and Trappist variaties.
