Tail Waggin’ Double White Ale is brewed in the Belgian tradition, using malted barley, wheat malt, candi sugar and a unique touch— unmalted rye. Noble-type hops are used for bittering, with spices added in the whirlpool. GTBC followed the Belgian tradition of using bitter orange peel and coriander, then added a bit of lemongrass to make their wit something special. Finally, they fermented the beer with a Belgian witbier yeast strain that adds its own complexity with spicy phenols and fruity esters.

Its a shame this came in a big bottle, because I would have been perfectly happy with a 12 oz bottle of this orange and coriander bomb. Really didn’t need to be a "double" anything. Subtlety is absolutely lacking in this beer.

750ml bottle -

Picked up this bottle the 3rd or 4th time I saw it at BevMo along with the other GT bombers that are priced at about $10. The previous ones have been great so I had high hopes for this one. And it did deliver and was a solid beer all the way around. Lots of pepper and corriander in the nose, but what suprised me was how fruity this beer tasted. Just an avalance of orange-y goodness with a yeasty/bready note. Quite tasty and refreshing. Finishes clean with a sweet aftertaste. Idaho should be quite proud of this brewery.

On tap. A small white head and cloudy, pale gold color. The flavor is complex, with spice, yeast, and fruit (mostly orange) all over. Belgian whites are not my favorite style, but I really liked this one. Very interesting.

Draft at Dexters. Hazy, unfiltered orange-tan. Thin, oily head. Lemon and sweet malt tones, pretty well done. Lots of spice tones, sort of like a US spicebomb in some respects. Avoids true bombhood by having a nice enough big malty body to even it out. Lemony herbal finish. OK.

bottle at azwine 10/25/10. hazy pale orange w/ a clingy white head. aroma is very mimosa-like along with dust, florals, yeast and umami. the flavor is the same only too sweet. it lacks spice, bite or anything to balance it out. as it sits it seems to flatten and de-carbonate. 6/4/5.5/2.5/13

Bottle @ Dan’s house. A bit hazy, golden orange appearance with lots of sediment. Sweet, almost brown sugar-like, orange peel, wheat malty nose. Somewhat yeasty, bitter orange peel, light lemongrass, bready, light wheat malty flavor. Some booze on the finish. More bready and less wheat-like than most witbiers.

Straw gold with frothy white head and a ton o’ suspended yeast. Aroma is quite yeasty and not necessarily in a good way. Sweet, some clove, and citrus. Flavor is sweet, honey biscuits, citrus, some yeast, clove, spice. Definitely more presence than an average wit. Okay, but not my favorite style. I’m sure would be better on a warm summer day rather than a cold January day in Wisconsin.

At first I thought it was going to be pretty good. Poured with a nice off white head that lasted and some good lace. Color is a clear amber with no bubble trails. Nose is classic Belgian White: bit of yeast, spice, malt, citrus. Flavor is way too malt sweet. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. This beer is not for me.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of wheat, oranges, light coriander, mandarin, slight lemongrass, and a hint of Belgian yeast. Poured yellow in color with a small, loose, white head that diminished but lasted throughout around the edges only. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of light wheat, oranges, mandarin, nectarine, and slight Belgian yeast. Light to medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Wheat, orange, mandarin finish. Too much orange/mandarin! Yuck. 7.2%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
