Colore giallo leggermente torbido, schiuma abbondante e persistente, carbonazione importante ma delicata. Al naso frumento, limone. Sapore di frumento, avena, coriandolo. Una Blanche molto delicata dove tutti i sapori non sono invadenti, che puó piacere anche ai non amanti del genere. Lele (562) - Padova, ITALY - APR 19, 2017
Buonissima blanche, dai chiari sentori agrumati e speziati, soprattutto coriandolo. Molto saporita e rinfrescante, malgrado il suo grado alcolico. Molto equilibrata, non stanca mai.

Draft at Meddlesome Moth, Dallas. Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma id wheat, a touch of citrus, spice. Taste is wheat, fruit, yeast, Belgian spice, white pepper. UXO (1896) - CANADA - FEB 27, 2017
Appearance: translucent dirty pale gold with two fingers of fizzy white head diminishing rapidly to a persistent thick creamy cap, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: doughy yeast, orange peel, banana, coriander/clove, hint of floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Palate: Medium-light slightly slick body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter and spicy warming finish. (4/5)
I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever had a “double white”, and it’s not your typical Belgian, that’s for sure. Initially, the aroma is dominated by a bready, doughy yeast completely unlike anything I’ve encountered in a Belgian before. (Though quite similar to e.g. Council Brewing’s house yeast, which I’m sure is 100% Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or baker’s yeast.) That doughy aroma settles back along with the initially large and fizzy white head, allowing the more traditional Witbier aromas to come through. The higher alcohol seems to come through in the middle and finish, presenting as - well, it’s not fair to say “solvent-like,” since that implies a harshness that’s not present - but certainly a sweet slick warmth not present in a typical Witbier. For the second glass, I swirled in the lees, and both the curaçao orange peel and coriander spiciness amped up considerably. Not without its charms, but fairly middle of the pack both for Witbiers and for Belgian beers in general. (14/20) Torrefacto (1792) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 18, 2017
