Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2005
Golden yellow, large white head. Citrus aroma, flavour of citrus and yeast. As others have mentioned, this has a clean and crisp quality that makes it very enjoyable. sampled at Radekfest 05.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2005
Acquired in trade with Eyedrinkale. Poured a medium, cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of citrus (oranges and lemons), spices and yeast. Tastes of citrus and spices. Nice clean and crisp finish.

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.

jtw (1101) - farmington, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2005
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!

shadey (1904) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2005
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

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Opaque gold colour. Slight barnyard hint to the bready malt aroma. A funky take on the style - got to like that. Appley esters and dusty yeastiness along with that slight leathery note. I actually didn’t get much spice.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2005
Huge yeast aroma, some citrus and plenty of corriander. Hazy yellow, fair sized white head. Flavour is malt, orange, yeast and corriander for days. Well carbonated, light bodied, very drinkable. Delicious! Thank You Shadey.

zathrus13 (1719) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2005
2005 bottle. Pours a very cloudy yellow gold, with a small white head. Aroma is lemon, spice, and some sour malt. Flavor is lemony, somewhat sour, with yeast as well. Body is a little heavier than expected, but thsat doesn’t take away from it at all. The white/wheat style is not my favorite, but this really good.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
Yellow white in color, white head. Aroma of lemon and spice, light wheat. Also fairly yeasty. Mild tartness. Light to medium body works well with this beer. It’s ok. Thanks Shadey.
