COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A "double strength" version of classic Belgian-style "white" ale. A deceptively light ale spiced with Curacao Orange Peel and coriander seed.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Pours a pale dusky straw, with a lingering skim of light head. Aromas of clove, sour apple, wool, and lemon. Delicious burst of grape skin sourness, a little bit of wheat "sparkle" and then an abrupt finish that leaves a chewy sourdough bread taste. Very unusual and very tasty. Tasted this with Hezron for inspiration while brewing his double-white.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Very citrusy, and teetering toward sour, with a great flecky body, wonderfully suspended yeast and a cakey breadiness. Very orangey, lemony, but not astringent (to me). I wish I had more, but the one bottle from BotW Rochester was it sadly.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2005
On tap at Delaney’s in New Haven. Poured a cloudy pale white with a white head. Sweet and spicy aroma. Taste has a good amount of sweetness and enough spice to add decent complexity. Some toffee in the finish. More reminiscent of a belgian wit than a regular belgian ale to me.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2005
07.16.05 Sampled from bomber at BCTC. Thickly hazedd, near opaque pale straw. Fleeting head. aroma is spicy, weeds, corriander, bubblegum, some floral. Really spiced up flavor but plenty of body to keep the spices from settling out too much on the palate. Not much alcohol presence from a double ’anything’. It’s a shame to call it ’double’ because it would be a fantastic plain old wit.

Bought a bottle of this a couple of years ago and gave to friend that had done so many favors for me. Finally getting to sample at the pub seems the ultimate reward. For some reason I had strange and perhaps unfavorable expectations despite my love of their beers here. Again, nice to be proven wrong. I enjoy a wit, but sometimes the balance leans to far in one direction. Here the balance leans too far in ALL directions and comes out all the better for it. Tangy and tart and more bitter than I would have thought and just perfect for the incredibly muggy weather that NY was experiencing at the time. Pure delight.

CapFlu (4714) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2005
(Bottle) Sampled at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Pours a cloudy, lemon juice coloured body. Nice banana and yeasty nose. Mildly milky. Very good but a tad weak in flavour.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2005
I need to drink more from this publick house! Another enjoyable offering - a standard wit but with some saison thrown in. Spicy coriander and some citrus zing but a certain funkiness too. Peppery and yeasty flavours and a nice finish. Nice.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Bottle: pours gold and cloudy with no real head to speak of. Smells of bananas and oranges. Taste is orangey with a lot of spice on the finish.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Hazy light gold, fizzy white head. Pleasant fresh belgian white... orange, banana aroma. Grassy lemon and sweet buttery wheat. Nice and full of good flavor.
