To put it simply- the best Witbier I have had to date... and I have had many. The Trappist brothers have a masterpiece here. Great with light foods.

(bottle) murky golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of coriander, physalis and candle wax, with some notes of sweet apple cider, wheat and raspberries. flavour is mostly orange juice and canned tangerines, with lots of syrup, some cobwebs and a semi-dry sugar confect finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

11.2 oz bottle - the appearance is a clear pale golden yellow with a thin white head. Great wit aroma of light fruit, hint of coriander spice, wheat, slight floral and light cracker malt. Very similar flavors as the aroma. Great wit

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours cloudy gold with a white head. Taste coriander, wheat, mild citrus. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just realized this is a witbier. Therfore, likely one of the best in the world, from these nice abbey clergymen.

Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is fruits and wheat. Sweet fruits flavours with a bit of citrus bitter. Good clean wit beer, well done.

Im usually not fond of wit beers so this rating is pretty excellent from me. Very surprised by this one, I knew the Tripel and Quadrupel were classics and personal choices, but never experienced this one before. I cant say it reaches the awesomeness of the other ones, but. It definitely was a pleasant drink, with unexpected personality. Similar in taste to the Tripel one, just less nose and lower abv... Pretty nice. APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!
