4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What’s a double white? I never heard of a double white. Sort of like an Imperial Lite? Anyway, works better than it sounds. Good wheaty and gingery nose, great wheaty lacing. Fruity, peppery, clovey, and, of course, gingery taste. Served with dessert, which seemed like a very good idea at the time.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy bright yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of ginger and wheat with a slightly peppery yeast and some nice fruity ester. Taste is very refreshing with loads of ginger and wheat with some very nice fruity ester. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation with no signs of alcohol. Very well done with great refreshing taste but some real complexity.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Stone. Hazy amber color, with a bright white head that reduced to thick lace. A hint of sourness on the nose, with vinegar and ginger. Yummy taste. Belgian yeasties are hiding in the flavor, along with a hoppiness. Creamy. A salivator for sure, and I like that sensation. It has a bitter crunchy finish. Very good.
