Nice frothy head atop a delicious beer. Good Brussels lace and a tasty banana-like finish. The best Ive had.

Bire qui est la 1re de la srie de ces Witkap, les capuchons blancs La stimulo est en fait la blonde de base, 6 % abv. Mais on sait quen Belgique, ces blondes peuvent se rvler de redoutables comptitrices, et cest le cas ici... Couleur blonde moyen brillant. Clart nette. Bulles moyennes partout dans le verre, comme un feu de brindilles. Mousse blanche trs paisse et crmeuse en haut avec un cratre central. Beau. Armes superbes de crales et houblon. Trs beau et fine amertume. Volume soyeux, quasi velout. Prise de bouche merveilleuse, ample, sur les crales avec une pointe dherbes aromatiques, et en seconde vague le houblon fin. 2me bouche superbe, douce, pleine. 3me quilibre, avec une note fleurie et une petite pointe de vanille. Arrire-bouche trs agrable, avec du houblon en fleur. Longueur avec un nez trs fleuri, mais o lamertume en bouche est bien prononce, parfois avec un rtro-nez un peu mdicinal, mais lensemble est joli. Levure douce avec une pointe damertume, tout fait adapte. Alcool sympa pour une blonde de base. Finale sans fausse note, avec une constance des nuances de got. Grande bire pour une blonde basique, et si on veut plus, on peut passer la merveilleuse triple, qui est un pur chef doeuvre.

While called a Single, this beer actually comes in at 6% abv. It is fermented at 68 degrees, then cold conditioned at a chilly 41 degrees. After conditioning, it is primed with white candy sugar, then re-yeasted and re-fermented in the bottle, where it is stored at 75-79 degrees. This makes for a very complex and refreshing brew for a beer of its strength. Witkap-Pater Single is brewed with Pilaster, and a specialty malt the brewery keeps secret, and is hopped with whole flower Styrian Golding hops. Witkap-Pater Single pours to a hazy golden color with a dense, tall rocky head of foam, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer has a spicy hop aroma and a vinous like undertone as well. The body on this beer is crisp and refreshing, with lots of estery, fruity flavors of green apple and citrus. There is also a back drop of dare I say "yeasty" flavor on the palate as well. Michael Jackson says this beer is "sherbety" on the tongue, and I would say that is an apt descriptor. This beer finishes with more fruity notes, of apple and citrus, and ends with a dry, zesty bitterness that lingers.

For me, as an expirienced taster of Belgian beers, this is simple the best. To specify, lets say the best beer to drink easily at a terras with a little sunshine. I agree it isn’t the best beer if you compare it to the traditionel trappist, but I prefer a Witkpa to a havy trappist.

This is awesome. Very much resembles a Flemish Sour in terms of finish and tartness, but does not have the same cherry flavors. Extremely refreshing.

joet (2565) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 20, 2001
Wow!!! This is great. Neroli aroma -- fine fine orange. Some masculine cologne/perfume aroma. Pure white foam over a light golden brew. Balanced, clean and a bit of pepper in the finish. Very light and drinkable. Hints of dust. Great feel except for a perfect snap. Perfect for this warm late autumn evening with ceviche, tomato sauce or any high acid foods.

Pours clear gold-amber with a big fluffy white head. Smells like Bazooka bubble gum and bananas with a little pine resin. Huge carbonation, light in the mouth with pepper, banana, clove...zesty as heck! Definately one of the most uniqe smelling and tasting beers Ive had. Absolutely delicious and one of my new "must-have-it-in-the-house-at-all times" beers! I forsee a trip to Johns Grocery in my very near future...

This blond, honey-colored beer is delicious. It has a consistent thick whtie head and the soft white taste jumps on your palate and provides delicious flavor of a typical white beer of citrus, sweet and spicy at the same time.

This Belgian single is an easy drinking, super tasty aroma rich beer that shatters any conception of singels you may have had, A great everyday Belgian.
