look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
The only white trappist available. Poured it into my lindemans glass.
A: A very lightyellow hazy color. Huge head that slowly diminished throughout the drink. Nice!
S: Some general white beer smells like citrus and coriander but to my surprise also some sweet fruits low in the mix. Yeast smell a little too strong for my taste.
T: No acid bomb like some white beers can be. Grains, coriander, lemon, hints of sweet fruits.
M: Medium carbonation and a medium body.
D: A different white beer for once. I think this will be my second favorite after the Gulpener korenwolf.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe website (£1.89):
Slightly cloudy yellow to golden with a large, foamy white head that looks quite thick and holds well. Plenty of visible evidence of carbonation and some lacing left on the sides of the glass too.
Light spice then some citrus notes, there is a touch of lemon and a hint of coriander as well. I could detect some cloves, wheat & some refreshing fruits that seem almost tropical but these are faint.
Citrus with a mainly lemon zest taste to begin, there is some banana and a little clove too. A definite witbier taste with some light coriander and hints of spice and orange with a mix of various fruits towards the end.
Well carbonated with a citrus tang that is quite refreshing on top of a light body. The high carbonation takes a little away from the smoothness but the beer is an easy one to drink.
Not a bad witbier at all and very close to what I was expecting before opening the bottle. The taste features all the regulars for the style and the the balance is a nice one with no one flavour dominating proceedings.
