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.

1FastSTi (3342) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2005
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.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2006 Sampled at ratebeer party today, thanks!Cloudy yellow color with a bright white head. Sweet aroma that had a yeast bite to it. The taste is sweet with a hint of citrus that blends nicely. big corriander and green grapes on the nose with a touch of lemon. flavors shine the lemon component mostly with some metallic notes as well. Very dry finish. Very solid for the style and for an american version. Very clean and tasty.

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.

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!
