4.15/5 rDev +4.5%
A: The beer poured slightly cloudy pale golden in color with a white head that quickly dissipated into lacy patterns of bubbles on the surface. A light amount of carbonation is visible from the rising bubbles.
S: There are moderate aromas lemons, oranges and spices in the nose.
T: Flavors of lemons and oranges really stand out in the overall taste, which is slightly sweet and has some hints of coriander.
M: It feels medium- to light-bodied on the palate and a bit thin.
D: The beer is refreshing and thirst quenching and is relatively easy to drink, even when considering its higher alcohol content as compared to typical witbiers.

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.
