UPDATED: AUG 6, 2005 Bottle. Poured cloudy yellow with scents of lemon, wheat, citrus , orange and lime. Taste is very lemony and sour. I am struggling to get into this style. That being said this is the best example so far for my taste.

Thanks to someone at the 3F Darklord release. Pours a light cloudy yellow. Scents of spicy orange, sour grape, and yeast. Flavor is slightly sour with an vinous background. Refreshing tingle makes it easy to drink.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled inside FFF’s. :). Appearance was small particles floating in a murky light yellow body. A white head topped it off. Aroma was VERY spicy, apple, wheat, yeast, bubblegum, hint of sourness (not infected), oranges. Flavor is very spicy. Coriander, wheat, touch of sour apple, touch of bananas. This has to be one of the best Belgian’s I’ve ever sampled. Palate is sour, sweet, medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Eyedrinkale. Golden yellow in color with a fantastic white head. Good lacing. Sweaty and wheat beer aroma. The slight funky aroma throws me off a little but is pleasing. A touch of coriander in the nose and flavor but barely at the level of perception. Crisp. Refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle, thanks to eyedrinkale for sharing! by the way, what exactly IS a "double white ale?" poured a hazy cloudy canary white with tons of foamy white head that stuck to the glass with about 1/4 inch thick lacing. tons and tons of coriander and other light spices, even a note of sesame. sublimely dry, spritzy, and light-bodied. southampton has made a good first impression!

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 April 2005. 750 ml corked and caged. This is the version prior to it being contract brewed. Very hazy cloudy yellow. Lots of citurs and banana. Bigger than a regular white. Deliciously smooth flavor. Very nice from Southampton. 7/4/8/3/17
June 2006 - 22oz bottle. It is my understanding that this is the contract brewed version. Clear yellow with nice bubbles. Mild aroma of spices, banana, cloves and a bit of alcohol. Not quite as good as I remember. 7/2/6/3/16
