RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a two finger head that fades slowly to a nice solid cap. The lacing is thick, leaving a nice sheeting of foam behind. Smell; oranges and lemons are by far the dominant aromas, but thereís also a underlying sweet maltiness. The spices are a little on the tame side, but that works just fine for me as I sometimes have a hard time with overly spiced beers. Taste; mild coriander and peppery spiciness, followed quickly by orange peel and lemon, but thereís also a little bit of peaches as well. Itís a little tart through the middle, and then becomes just a little sweet towards the finish The wheat is actually very noticeable in flavor, and adds a nice depth to this beer that I donít usually get in a Wit. Mouthfeel is a bit sharp right initially, but then becomes quite a bit smoother with a fine carbonation that gives a creamy texture. Very nice. The drinkability is really damn good, and the alcohol is barely detectable.

Originally rated on12/17/2008. This poured a nice looking hazy yellow body with a mid sized white cap that disappeared quickly and didnt leave much lace. Aroma of coriander and wheat. Flavor was a little off for me because i drank it too cold so most of the flavors didnt come out even though i let it warm a bit. Flavors of coriander, wheat and some spices. Overall it was smooth with a little bitterness from the lemon, worth a try.

Brewed for the winter, Southamptonís Double White is a bigger, heartier ale for colder weather. It almost drinks like a Weizenbock, yet itís still light and refreshing. Lovely light yellow color with a head that sticks around. Doughy wheat, clove, coriander, pepper, and a subtle lemony brightness. Creamy smooth feel. This is the kind of winter treat I could enjoy year-round.

Bottle. A- White pepper, cloves, coriander, subtle orange. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Subtle white chocolate, coriander, spices. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- Not sure where the white chocolate sweetness came from but overall this was a very tasty beer. Balanced well considering all the spices going on. Not overwhelming or overpowering at all.

nybol (1765) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
En belgisk inspireret wit. Den er syrlig, noget mere end jeg mŚske nok synes om. Den har smag af krydderierne der er i, og jeg sidder tilbage med en smag af noget surt, lidt ligesom citron....ikke helt godt

phaleslu (10099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2015
12 oz. bottle from DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy yellow gold with a finger of white head that forms a lasting ring and film. Thereís a lot of yeast sediment in the brew, as well. Notes of banana, wheat, coriander, orange zest, hay, minerals, paper, and sweet dough. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, sweet, yeasty mouthfeel. Lots of esters. Delivers on its promise - a big-seeming witbier.

jmohno (1610) - Iowa, USA - SEP 25, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2015 Probably a few years old. Gold almost identical looking to Keller pils. Banana spice clove aroma bready and light sweet caramel malt. Taste is smooth bready malt. Carbonic citric bite. Some stale mineral offness. Harsh chinnok like bitter. Astringant finish. Spicey floral flavors. Defiantly pour with the yeast, not like the keller pils definatley donít pour the yeast on that.

JStax (6349) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a hazy pLe yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has a ton of banana and mellow spices. Moderate sweetness throughout with a good fruity character. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty refreshing beer.
