12 oz bottle (procured in the Netherlands) poured into my Supra gueuze tumber, La Trappe Witte is a spritzy clear pale yellow with a large, quickly settling white head that leaves scattered lace.

Smell is sweet and fruity, but not to strong, and with a nice little twang from the wheat.

Taste is amazing, wow. Big fruity esters, very clean, super tasty. Surely the best Witte I've had, which is many, as it's a favorite style of mine. I love the sweetness while still being very refreshing and not at all overbaring.

Mouthfeel is sharply crisp, with a light body, very refreshing.

Drinkability is super high. This is an awesome witte.

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.

A: Dark golden/light mahogany body with a creamy white head with great lacing.
S: Wheat, Belgian yeast, candied sugar, and sweet malts.
T: A mix of a solid witbier and a good Belgian. Interesting mix that I haven't had before, and not sure it's found too many other places. Starts light with the wheat, then shifts into some dark fruits and candied sugar.
M: Pretty heavy, maybe not a thirst-quenching wheat but more a session beer.
D: Could've had a few.

On-tap a Beerbistro. Wheat beers are always better when they're fresh.

A: Hazy, white-yellow, white head, some retention and lace.

S: Spicy (corriander), tropical fruit (banana with a hint of pineapple) and a touch of wheat.

T: Corriander, banana, wheat, cider, hint of pineapple, slight hint of tartness.

M: Light to moderate body is well-attenuated with a dry finish. Higher than moderate carbonation. Refreshing. It'd be a great summer drink.

D: Very drinkable.

Found this to be a Hoegaarden Wit clone (or maybe the other way around?)
Poured a great sudsy head, with good head retention, & lacing. A nice soft appearance
Sweet honeys in the aroma...some molasses, very inviting.
The taste was clean, spicey with cloves & coriander, little bitterness & no dryness - very very nice.
mouthfeel had some nice carbonation leaving an alive feeling...this was a nice witbier for sure.
Excellent drinkability - light enough to easily have a session....
Ima loving the witbiers & I reckon this was better than Hoegaarden Wit.

Hey! This is good stuff! My partner (bless her) bought some at the supermarket the other day, knowing I like "trappist" style beers. I didn't have the heart to tell her I don't really go for white beers.

Turns out I am a prejudiced boob. This really is very good. Clean, clear, fresh - I really like it.

I think you will too - give it a try.

La Trappe, maybe not the best, but with their wide range of different beers, for sure the most inventive trappist brewery. This time I tried the only white trappist beer avaliable.
Poured it into a La Trappe glass. The beer pours a cloudy gold-yellow color with a nice two finger thick head that didn't disappear during drinking.

The scent is like Hoegaarden white, wheat malts, fresh and some spices (coriander).

The taste is great, a bit sweet (but much less sweet than Hoegaarden white), wheat, some citrus and spices again. The aftertaste is a bit malty, nice and very fresh

The mouthfeel is good, medium-high carbonation but very light and drinkable

Overall it is my favourite white beer, more spicy, much less sweet and much more depth compared to Hoegaarden white beer. Another great trappist beer. If you like the style, it is a must try!

A pale straw colored hazy beer, with a white large foam that recedes rather quickly leaving a good lacing.

The smell is the typical spices, cardamom, cumin, citric fruits, bitter orange, sweet syrup, bread loafs and some yeast.

The taste is starting with a clean toffee sweetness, acid tones from lemon and oranges, spicy notes, clove and cardamom, a little bitterness like orange seeds.

A rather mild carbonation and a fresh, yet rich and complex feeling.

A typical sunset, or sitting-on the porch beer. Or why not to a spicy soup.

29 September 2006, Best Before Nov 06

Cloudy golden colour with a medium sized head. Aroma of citrus, coriander, spice, banana and fruit. Tastes doughy and wheaty with some lemon zest, orange and coriander spice. Mouthfeel is bready and light to medium bodied. An excellent witbier.
