Surprised this rates low (for an Alchemist). Its a nice take on a witbier using a different type of orange (I think) than what is more typical. Yeasty. Raw. Dry. Thx Patrick, this was a nice surprise!

PhillyCraft (6893) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Can, pours a hazy brown gold with small head. Smell and flavor are basic belgian wit notes with spice, coriander, fruit, and yeast. Would like to see them make some low alcohol hoppy beer. That would be totally crazy, but theres hope.

mathieuc (3861) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2016
Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of oranges and unidentified spices (something else than coriander, or maybe it wasnt the best kind?). Taste is moderately sweet, light citrus and orange zest. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Not sure why someone would want to drink a double wit, much less brew one. Witbiers should be light and refreshing. Drinkable but not really enjoyable.

can shared by tom10101, many thanks bro! pours unclear bright gold with a small white cap offering some retention and lacing. sweet coriander, candied herbs, orange juice, spent fruits, sweet honey, bitter herbs. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily; semi-sweet herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. double wit is just a bad idea.

Can (473 ml). Clear bright orangey-golden with a small to medium white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is of coriander, oranges, some sweetness, cereals, garbage, Taste is sweet with coriader, oranges, garbage juice and very light bitterness. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Sweetish and spicy finish. Its not bad for what it is but its pretty bad per se.

thepatrickman (1221) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Can from opening day at the new Alchemist brewery. Light and fruity, with a big orange and grain aroma thats followed by a surprisingly restrained flavor. Lots of fruit aromas, though, which make it great for a summer evening (although the 7.3% ABV means its tough to have too many of these).

On tap at the Alchemist. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a thick white head. Aroma is very fruity with scents of orange, pear & apricot as well as wheat and coriander spice. Flavor follows the aroma to the tee. Moderate in the mouth with prickly carbonation on the tongue. This one was loaded with flavor and character.
