BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven B.V.
Netherlands

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.

Review acoording to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 16A). Bottle 33cl - Batch K10A14. AROMA: sweet and subtle cereal background. moderate coriander with moderate citrusy notes. hop aromas very subtle to none. APPEARANCE: very pale straw/hay color. very clear. dense white head with good retention. TASTE: predominant herbal hop flavour balanced with citrusy character. and a mild wheat background. low hop bitterness that doesnt linger. PALATE: medium-light to light body, a bit on the watery/thin side. finishes not very dry and without tartness. Very effervescent and highly carbonated. no astringency. OVERALL: altough refreshing and very drinkable, an average wit.

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.
