BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven B.V.
Netherlands
latrappe.nl

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Not bad as some sort of style of a wheat beer. As a wit, it seems to be missing some of the traditional qualities that make this beer so interesting and pleasurable as a type. The use of just these ingredients to yield the traditional results doesn't quite cut it. Still not a bad brew.

Pleasing to nose, crisp with hints of fruit. Not overly carbonated like some whites. Nice accompaniment to non-sweet or spicy foods.

11.2 oz bottle

Pours a hazed yellowy hue of light amber. Lifts a large, solid and lasting off white head.

Lemon perfumed sniff with some yeast and light coriander

Lemon, pepper, lime, again coriander and flowery perfume on the palate. Light, delicate, complex, dry and quite tasty. Quality wit.

Bring on the goat cheese, crusty bread and summer salads

A tasty and refreshing brew, though it lacks some of the herbal aromas of other witbieren. Leans a bit towards weizen actually. That's not necessarily a bad thing though.

Beer of a light and hazy ocher color and an effervescent foam.
Smell and taste are not strong neither special, somewhat yeasty and spicy but with more malt notes than any thing else.
Body is light and carbonation is high, but effervescence takes the gas away after some shaking
