On draft at de heeren, served in chalice. Light white head, medium retention. Clear blonde body. Aroma leans toward hoppy bitterness and a pilsner type malt. Taste is actually almost pilsner like with a nice yeast flavor.  Light taste, refreshing. Easy to drink.

Merry Christmas 2011!!
Pouring this one as my dad bought me this beer a month ago, and been saving it for Christmas.
Pours a light straw yellow tone. High carbonation. The appearance is really set off by the beautiful head. "witkap"is white cap in dutch, and this really fits the description. Foamy, frothy, yeast bubbles, beautiful.
Smells of soured yeast lemon sweet sugar bicuit notes. I make the bread at the restaurant where I work and the smell is of the slightly sweet/sour starter strain we use. A hint of floral freshness is there as well, grassy even. Asian pear, lemon zest, Belgium funkiness in the water(if you've ever been there)
Taste is Belgium.Sweet/lemon, yeast, clove, pepper, medium carbonation mixed with a light yeast creaminess.
Lemon zest biscuit, pepper, yeast in a huge way, adding its unique mix of almost milky creaminess with acid and sweetness.
Grains and fruit flavors mingle to create a beautiful balance of sweet meets tangy meets sour alll in a sip.
Medium bodied, very light and goes down easy.
A bit pricy here in the States, should have brought a few back from Belgium.
Merry Christmas.

Bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a cloudy light orange/yellow hue with a very prominent, very foamy white head.

S: The aroma is immediately spicy up front with clove, cinnamon and cardamom and gives way to fruity esters and banana. A pretty overt aroma from something so light.

T/M: It's highly carbonated and, unlike the plentiful fragrance, it tastes very dull. The lingering flavors are definitely nice: light apricot, orange, peach, some spicy yeast, but it's all very weak. This isn't necessarily bad; if you're going for a light Belgian, well, this is about as light as you'll find. It's definitely the lightest I've ever had.

Everything works well in tandem and even though I'd prefer something a bit heftier, it's still a good beer and I'm sure it would be perfect in the right mood.

Poured light hazy pour with decent amount of head off the pour. Very sweet and almost more wheat or saison aroma. Very light and smooth with a clean finish. Very little bitterness at all in all a decent pale ale but not like many others. There is not many characteristics that make it compairable to other pale ales, at least in the states.

Poured a white all head in the glass and took a while to settle down. Slightly hazy straw yellow body color. Really not a whole lot of smell but it does have some malt and dried fruit. Taste has a little less dried fruit, some citrus hints, and frankly it's rather sour. And there's not much of a finish. Kind of an imbetween beer, a little like a wit, a little like an Abbey, a little sour.

Witkap Pater Single

Pours a somewhat muddled straw color, big soapy head with excellent retention. Aroma is very Belgian, with the typical yeasty aroma, straw, wheat, damp hay, etc. In the flavor, much of the same. Mild bready maltyness accompanied by a prevailing soft fruit yeast presence. Apricot comes to mind, but not as pronounced. Ghost like hop does just enough to balance. Simple, pleasant, and highlights the great abbey yeast strain of Slaghmuylder.

Really enjoyed this beer--takes a while to appreciate the subtleties that come through.

A-yeasty, cloudy and golden. thin head, no lacing

S-not much hop aroma, but a delicate honey aroma comes through.

M-spot on with the carbonation, medium body

T- first thing that I experience was a slight yeasty spice at the back of my tongue, followed by a rounded citrus (orange) and a note of coriander

The first Belgian Singel I've ever had or seen. This pours out almost like a Wit beer, cloudy and pale yellow. Thin white head not much lacing. The smell is kind of citrusy but also a bit light also. The taste of the beer was kind of one dimentional to me. there was no transitions here. It tastes similar to a Weisse beer but doesn't really have much of an aftertaste. The mouthfeel was a bit too thin I thought. Overall, I'm glad I tried it but it's not something I'll be getting more of.
