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.

Really happy to find this on draft at Binny’s Southloop. Pours a very hazy but see-thru light straw yellow with a medium thin white sudsy fluff. Smells like a nice witte, fair amount of lemon, crisp, yeasty. Flavor is quite nice and true to a wit, some chalky bitterness, sharp lemon cookie, a bit watery though, yeasty aftertaste. Neat to see the Koningshoeven yeast character shine through in a wit, has the same type of sweetness also. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2009
Pale golden color with a big white head that stays around for a while and leaves nice lacings. Primarily wheat and white bread in the nose with notes of sweet fruits (mostly oranges) and mild hints of spices. Hints of medicinal phenols as well. The flavor is rather sweet, even for a witbier, with predominant notes of wheat, crackers, malts and sweet orange-like fruit notes. Restrained spicy aromas. The finish is also fairly sweet with a mild bitterness and clean fruit esters and medicinal phenols. The body is light and the beer is very easy to drink. All in all, not bad, but nothing spectacular either. Lacks some balance considering the sweetness. Bottle

33cl bottle poured into a tumbler. Cloudy yellow with a ton of creamy white head. Aroma is candy sugar, spice, citrus, yeast. Flavor is the same. Medium carbonation, light body. Finish is spice. A decent wit.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a very nice white head, some lacing. Very spicy, fruity aroma with lemon peel, orange and banana. Flavour is lightly dry, acidic and very spicy with lemon peel, orange and hint of banana. Light bodied, but with a nice refreshing carbonation. Would be perfect in the summer!

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - OCT 22, 2009
Cloudy golden color with a huge head. Good lacing. Sediment everywhere. Smell and taste are bananas, yeast, lemon, and the tang of pineapple. A little high on carbonation but not annoying. This is my first witbier so I can’t wait to compare this to others.

Parket (582) - Bruges, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2009
bottle, unclear white/yellow colour with quit stable white head. Smell: very nice fruity! Taste: typical for a witbier and not so special. Notes from coriander, sweet, grainy, lemon. Overall not bad but a bit too watery.

gyllenbock (7563) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy appearance of the liquid, aroma of spices and citrus. The taste reminded very much of a Belgian witbier, dry with hints of caramel and some citrus and yeast. Not so much spices as in a Belgian witbier. Light body and slightly thin feeling. Still a nice thirst quencher but are not directly complex

Bottle "La trappe Witte Trappist". Pale, hazy with large white head. Aroma of bananas, citrus and seville orange. A nice, dry wit with a rather short aftertaste.

Sampled this guy at the Great World Beer Festival. Solid wit. Hazy pour with a generous head. Nice fruity flavor. Full body and a smooth finish.

Bottle 8 C, AR: yeast, yeast, yeast - I like pommerance, rubber AP: golden yellow, the resudue is flying in the body like the condensation tails after an airplane F: yeast, apricot, sour fruit drops, medium bitterness AF: lasting bittners The "trappist" is like mix of trappist and a wit!
