Heavy yeast aroma when first poured producing a thick white pillow of foam on top. Standard witbier flavor and easy drinking.

I didn’t expect a white ale to be very good... But man, that is tart! Almost too tart. Wow, I am impressed. I landed this beer in a trade, and I have no idea who to thank... But man, that beer is delicious. Cheers!

Rcvd in trade. The appearance had a hazy yellow colored body with a thin one fingered white foamy head that died within about a minute. The smell had an almost perfect blessing of coriander spices to a lemon citrus blend that adds a spectacular sweetness and just enough yeastiness to assist in a wonderful spectacular aroma. The taste was sweet to spicy with the citruses of lemon and orange to exemplify a more than adequate flavoring for an American brewer for a witbier. The aftertaste is slightly spicy and citrusy. The finish is not as dry as expected but still felt dry and quick as I did expect. The palate is about a light to medium, and fairly sessionable. Carbonation is just right for a Witbier and its good to me as well. Overall, where the hell did thing come from? Are all of the Southampton beers as good as this? Holy Moley, I would love to have this one again and pair it with some seafood.

DruncanVeasey (6938) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Live rate. Bottle at home. Mid-clouded with a slim white foam retreating to a halo. Evocatively Belgian aroma with Rowntree’s pineapple jelly, perfumed coriander and green leafy herb suggestions. Sweet, slightly Cointreau boozy and perfumed with more green herb citrus, coriander, botanical and clove-studded peel notes. Touch too much booze and stillness in the finish; body and condition leaning towards a US wheat.

Aroma of Belgian yeast and some orange peel/coriander spices. Taste is a full flavored Belgian white, not too sweet and some nice spice and Belgian yeast flavors (maybe slight banana). Overall a nice white. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy light yellow with big white head. Scent is spicy lemon. Earthy almost bretty. Live on the tongue. One of the better Belgian Whites I’ve tried. Bottle - Dakota Blue - Atlanta, Georgia

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy straw color with lots of chunky sediment. There’s about one fingers worth of white colored head. Both retention and lacing are pretty good. S: Spicy. There’s a good amount of coriander, black pepper, sage, and orange peel, offset slightly by the sweet malts. Only detraction: the aroma seems oddly ham-like and smoky. For some reason, it reminds me of opening a can of Underwood deviled ham - this quality is really hard to shake off. T: Luckily the flavor works better. Mild candied sugar combines with orange peel to start it off, and it finishes with plenty of coriander, sage, and other assorted garden herbs. Wheat flavors help bridge the opening with its clean, spicy finish. There’s a good combination of spicy and sweet here. M: While it is a touch too sweet and a touch too flabby, the finish is pleasantly dry and the carbonation pokes through enough to help it go down well. It certainly hasn’t lost much drinkability over its smaller brethren. O: I really get where they were going with this: it’s definitely bigger than the average wit, but not moronically so. Since this isn’t a style that should be imperialized, it still works quite well (aroma notwithstanding). This would be really good in the summer weather, I’ll just have to avoid smelling it next time I drink it.

This brew is quite delicious with a nice coriander aftertaste. Aroma is a bit skunky but flavor is a bit of orange zest.

Sampled at Big Brew Beer Festival (Morristown). Poured a hazy yellow color with a frothy white head. Aroma of wheat and lemony citrus. Taste of sweet citrus, lemon zest, sugar, and wheat.
