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.

Fruity and spicy, this one has a bit of a nip to it. Citrusy with a touch of coriander, pale golden with a thin head. A bit of tang on the roof of the mouth finishes it...

Overall a very nice witbier with typical witbier-spice flavors, which I especially appreciate considering that there were no added spices. An interesting beer to try and a bit outside the usual Trappist lineup.
