Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of oranges and unidentified spices (something else than coriander, or maybe it wasn’t the best kind?). Taste is moderately sweet, light citrus and orange zest. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Not sure why someone would want to drink a double wit, much less brew one. Witbiers should be light and refreshing. Drinkable but not really enjoyable.

can shared by tom10101, many thanks bro! pours unclear bright gold with a small white cap offering some retention and lacing. sweet coriander, candied herbs, orange juice, spent fruits, sweet honey, bitter herbs. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily; semi-sweet herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. double wit is just a bad idea.

Can (473 ml). Clear bright orangey-golden with a small to medium white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is of coriander, oranges, some sweetness, cereals, garbage, Taste is sweet with coriader, oranges, garbage juice and very light bitterness. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Sweetish and spicy finish. It’s not bad for what it is but it’s pretty bad per se.

thepatrickman (891) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Can from opening day at the new Alchemist brewery. Light and fruity, with a big orange and grain aroma that’s followed by a surprisingly restrained flavor. Lots of fruit aromas, though, which make it great for a summer evening (although the 7.3% ABV means it’s tough to have too many of these).

mcox90 (1924) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 24, 2011
On tap at the Alchemist. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a thick white head. Aroma is very fruity with scents of orange, pear & apricot as well as wheat and coriander spice. Flavor follows the aroma to the tee. Moderate in the mouth with prickly carbonation on the tongue. This one was loaded with flavor and character.

Enjoyed at the brewpub Feb’09. Cloudy golden color with a smell of lemony citrus and spice. tastes of wheaty spice with a citrus background. Very nice and refreshing after a hard day on the slopes and and even better summer beer.
