3.8/5 rDev -4.3%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. No identifiable date, but there was a series of numbers (and a letter "B") stamped on the base of the bottle.
A: Cloudy, golden yellow body. 1/2 finger of white head with below average retention. Light lacing.
S: Strong fruit notes - banana, white grape, pineapple, lemon. Vanilla. Coriander. Light floral hops. This is the beer's strong suit.
T: Fruit and spicy yeast up front. Lightly sweet wheat notes arrive before the hop bitterness gradually creeps in. Finishes semi-dry. Alcohol is fairly present for 6.6% ABV. Mild citrus zest bitterness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Moderate to high carbonation with a moderate to light body. A bit prickly.
O: The nose got me excited, but I was a little let down with the taste. Despite being touted as "double", I found this one to be kind of hollow. The wit flavors are somewhat overshadowed by alcohol and bitterness. Certainly not bad, but not top of the class.

3.95/5 rDev -0.5%
Very solid Wit Beer. Not as good as Allagash, but better than most.
A: Cloudy, pale lemon body, that needs an aggressive pour to fully form its intense fine bubbled, lasting and lacing head.
S: Soft and muted, but no false notes. Very belgian in style with flower blossoms, orange, coriander, yeast against sugar cookie backdrop.
T: Follows the smell but more intense. I didnt mind the double strength. Big wit, filled with citrus flower blossoms, lemon peel, perfume, spice, yeast, coriander, and plenty of pepper in the finish. Pleasing. Clean.
MF: More body seems to come with the alcohol, but refreshing and good food beer. More serious than most wits.
