Nice and alcoholic white ale. Thick and creamy with not much of the spice and corriander being tasted over the alcohol which was good.

On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill. Amber with an off white head. Wheat, spice, apricot, some alcohol. Moderate carbonation and body, more alcohol on the palate then the aroma, slightly bitter with an underlying sweetness and some spice, becomes a bit dry.

Rating is a combination of draft and 22 oz. bottle. Draft @ Yard House, Boston. Bottle from The Beverage King. Bottle had a bit less head yet showed the same color and floating seeds and yeast in the glass. Aroma is a solid amount of coriander and yeast. The taste is mostly orange peel and coriander with yeast like after taste, plus a hint of pepper at the end as well. The mouthfeel is light, leaning toward medium. Mouthfeel is real effervescent. It is very true to the style. Almost as good as the ďWinter WhiteĒ Long Trail had a few years back. This is among the top in itís style.

Bottle. Clear golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of slightly sour citrus bubblegum and sourdough bread. Taste is softly sour and lightly spiced sourdough bread. Interesting.

I poured a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Bright hazy apricot skin orange. Initially forms a large, white, foamy head but it fizzles away rather quickly and leaves only minute lacing.

Smell: Mild nose with a hint of orange sherbet. Virtually no spice.

Taste: Iím not sure whatís the point of taking the Belgian White or witbier style and doubling up on it since there isnít a lot to be gained. Not that Long Trail Brewmaster Series Double White is a bad beer, far from it, just that itís nothing particularly special or different from an average witbier except for the fact it has nearly twice the alcohol. Light bitterness up front with a zesty orange peel taste (the label indicates itís brewed with "bitter orange and coriander"). Thereís a brief kick of black peppery-like spice in the middle, but then thereís a stronger, almost syrupy sweetness. A hint of apricot flesh or maybe tangerine. Itís not what I would consider a fruity beer per se, just reminiscent of one.

The aftertaste is quite clean and thereís virtually no alcohol present in the palate except for a very subtle vanilla flavor. Since this is a special, more expensive beer Iíd hope for some more impressive flavors and a more complex palate. Itís essentially the same as Long Trailís regular Belgian White but just a bit more chutzpah.

Drinkability: I bet you could serve Long Trail Brewmaster Series Double White to someone without telling them itís 8% ABV and theyíd mistake it for a regular witbier. While thereís no overt alcohol presence in the palate, thereís a distinct heaviness to the mouthfeel even though itís rather thin and crisp. It goes down very smoothly and the light orange flavors make it actually quite refreshing for a beer of its density. I killed an entire 22oz bottle by myself on a hot summerís night and it really did the trick. Not sure I needed all these extra calories without more taste to show for it, though.

Hazy golden big white head, little lacing... Bubblegum aroma a little alcohol, a touch spicy... Lively medium full body, some bubblegum flavor, quite spicy, not a lot of traditional witbier flavors... Decently interesting...

Bottle: Hazy apricot color. Aroma is fruity with notes of peaches, apricot, alcohol, citrus and sweetness. Flavor is very sweet, intensive notes of apricot, oranges, spices, sweet wheat notes and alcohol. Light bitter astringent. Heavy stuff, full bodied, a bit too sweet.

22oz bottle. Good color, heavy taste. Definitely taste the citrus, definitely a heavy Belgian bite.
