Quelle fantastique ide quune double blanche, cest--dire une strong wit, ou encore une imperial white Niveau abv 7 % pour mon exemplaire. Je ne sais pas si elle est alle jusqu 7,5 comme indiqu sur ratebeer, mais cest un magnifique niveau pour une blanche. Malts dorge et de bl, plusieurs houblons, coriandre, corce dorange curaao. Mon exemplaire avait 10 mois de bouteille en format 75 cl. Couleur dor clair, la clart pure (contrairement au sempiternel voile des blanches, qui commence devenir un faux semblant ). Bulles fines, partout, par milliers, trs vives. Superbe. Mousse blanche bien crmeuse, stable 8 mm. Armes de bl, anglique, pointe de genivre, girofle, coriandre. 1re bouche douce soyeuse, la magnifique prise sur le bl, la coriandre, des pices fines. Arrire-bouche avec zeste dorange, longue, prcise. 2me au superbe enchanement avec une fine pointe de guignolet. Arrire-bouche trs riche, complexe. 3me au splendide ensemble dlicat, finement fruit. Arrire-bouche fine, dlicate, parfume. Longueur qui travaille tout le registre de la dlicatesse, avec un grand talent, et la volont de dtailler les impressions ultimes. Du trs beau bl aussi. Jambes fines, serres, groupes. Levure douce, fine, trs grande ligne. Alcool parfait, il dmontre que les blanches peuvent parfaitement saccommoder dun haut niveau abv, qui leur donne une saveur pleine et complte. videmment ce nest pas pour les femmelettes qui sirotent lt en terrasse ... Finale grandiose, trs inspire. Je la vois comme un certain tableau de Bruegel ... CONCLUSION: quelle dmonstration de savoir-faire .. Quelle ide superbe dune double blanche. Mais il faut pour cela avoir affaire un brasseur sachant brasser . cest le cas manifeste ici. Pour toutes ces raisons et cette audace brassicole, nous accordons avec grand plaisir notre premier 5 une blanche . il a fallu quand mme en boire 27 pour y arriver !!!!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Pours hazed lemon yellow w/ a full spritzy froth that slowly reduce to a few small white clumps. Aroma of candied flowers. Light nectar w/ ample reidual effers. Flavors are medium dry, lightly tart and crisp with margarita salt and a spicey tropshire. A lemony citrus rind acidity cleans the palate for the next sip. This brew is delicate w/ comlex citrus and spice flavors. Lil asprin tingle on the finish. Well balanced. Overall: Its an Imperial Witbier. All flavors are intensified. A connoisseurs lemonaide. I highly recommend this classic.

LOVED THIS. Bottle. Pours a big full creamy head that bubbles away quickly. The color is a lovely hazy gold. Eathy cereal and citrus (orange and grapefruit) aromas. Taste was a exercise in balance that came close to perfection. Nice bready sweetness, some spice, a little citrus, a little bitter, finishing with a touch of floral perfuminess. Very crisp on the palate with lots of lively carbonation.

Cristobal37 (1002) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 8, 2015
Sweet citrus, spices, spearmint all from a huge fluffy head. Perfect wit appearance with a hazy yellow brew topped off with tons of head. Big carbonation. Flavor is more subtle than aroma, but the coriander is present, light silky malts. A wonderful example of the style. Satisfying, but makes you come back for more everytime! Thanks for sharing @kapusil.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Medium hazy gold, good sized persistent head. Aroma was a pleasant intermingling of wheat and very fresh orange marmalade, the kind with chunks of orange peel mixed in. Flavor was absolutely fantastic, layers of citric notes, including pineapple, light lemon, and more orange. This all moves into a lighlty spicy finish of coriander and white pepper. Zingy. I really liked this, a top notch wit that is worth seeking out for fans of the style.

Bottle 2008? Spicy wheat malt, clover, and sage aroma. Cloudy amber. Caraway, with wheat malt at midpalate. Finishes with sage and lemon. Very very neat. Good longevity

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
(75cl bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor for ~$12. Pours a huge, highly carbonated white foamy head atop a cloudy, sediment-filled yellow body. Nose is great with yeast, wheat and vanilla. Good alcohol front, crisp hoppiness. Sweet lemon and oh so smooth. Reminds me of Saxo. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

0.75l bottle. Hazy golden body, enormous white head. Aroma of bread, coriander, spearmint, orange zest and citruses. Taste of orange peel, citruses, coriander and maybe even a hint of pine. Medium body, creamy texture. Very lively taste and aroma. Awesome.
