Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly La Trappe

The world’s first and only white Trappist ale that continues to ferment slightly after bottling. Brewed using only water, wheat, and hops. No herbs are added. Saphir hops give the ale its citrusy aroma. A real thirst-quencher on a hot summer’s day that also makes for a delicious drink at any other time of the year.

Pours a hazy goldwn color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, pale malt, hint of alcohol, hint of citrus, and a hint of sweet malt. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of Belgian yeast, pale malt, hint of alcohol, hint of citrus, hint of spice, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, light and good blend, but too carbonated.

From the small bottle in a snifter. This solid witte pours a lightly
cloudy golden straw color with a fantastic head of white dissipating
foam that settles to a nice thick ring, thin layer, and showcases some
VERY nice sudsy lacing. nose of soft wheat, light candy sugars, subtle
yeasty goodness, and light lemon zest. Flavors exceed what a good
witte should taste like with soft wheat and subtle lemon touched hops
that are lightly herbal, a hint of white pepper, and excellent light yeast
elements with a light candy sugar touch. Excellent mouth feel; medium
light body, medium light carbonation, and a lightly dry finish.

Overall, an excellent brew from a great brewery.
One of he best witte ale I have had to date.

Cheers

Pours a hazy golden color with a huge top of white creamy head that disolve very slowly. Aroma is of citrus, banana, zest, spices like corriander and pepper and wheat. The taste is fruity and medium sweet with a medium spicy bitterness and some notes from the wheat in the back. The finish is as well medium bitter with some good spicy notes, but the flavour and mouthfeel is a little watery. Medium body with a high carbonation, with a clean and smooth but a little watery mouthfeel.
A good and refreshing witbier that would suit well on a hot summerday.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy light golden color with a nice large white head. A smell of spice, lemon and a bit of orange. Taste is similarly pleasant
