I got this beer from my Dutch beer friend, Wim; cheers to you dude! Hoegaarden is my staple
Belgian witbier which I take every now and then and I really enjoy it. This Witbier from La
Trappe is, in fact, my second Belgian style Witbier; therefore I am keen to see how it holds
up against competitor, Hoegaarden. This Witbier pours out murky yet bright yellow golden with
a nice thick head; medium retention. Hoegaarden looks murkier and darker. This beer has a smell
that was pretty similar to Hoegaarden, spices, wheat malts and yeast; pretty strong smell and I
think this is slightly stronger than the Hoegaarden. The entry to the taste is mainly yeasty
making it a little like a Belgian blond; spices on the back and towards the finish with a citrusy
and subtle banana like flavour. The finish is a dry goodness with lot's of wheat and some spices.
The after taste is lightly yeasty, mainly wheaty and citrusy with some spices lingering about.
The mouthfeel is a medium to thin body with a good (perhaps slightly high) amount of carbonation
and is basically pretty smooth drinking. Drinking the last few mouthfuls a little faster seems
to feel less yeast and an immediate strong banana aroma springs up on the palates and on the
nose upon finish dragging long into the after taste. Interesting... Generally the smell is
stronger and perhaps better than the Hoegaarden but the Hoegaarden has a better taste without the
yeast bags which made the La Trappe Wit taste like a Blond; also the Hoegaarden is much more
refreshing to drink with a better mouthfeel. The La Trappe Wit is also a little too dry perhaps.
On the whole a good beer for sure but Hoegaarden is easily available in Singapore unlike the
La Trappe and I do prefer the Hoegaarden; Hoegaarden wins this round. Next opponent: St Bernardus
Witbier or Bluemoon White Ale? :)

05/01/14 On tap. This is the stuff of the ethereal. Light as a feather and as refreshing as spring water. Yet, it has a distinct taste. A slight citrus and something in the wheat-ish area, but just ever-so...delicate...yeah that's it..delicate. An Angels Kiss. (Like I, of all, should know.) This is as clean and pure a taste sensation as it gets.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a slightly hazy pale straw color. There is a generous head with solid retention covering it.
The aroma is mostly wheaty, also some fruity and malts.
The taste starts sweet. There's quite some wheat, a slight yeasty feel. Slight sourness present, but also slightly watery body.
The fruity finish is nice.
Not my favourite, but drinkable.
