Look, this is overated. It was a fresh bottle, thanks to Shadey had at Radekfest 05, sample 21. Its sour! On the plus side is the yeasty aroma and cloudy white appearance. But this brewer should have the skill to control sourness. I don't like over-the-top corriander. (268 characters)

This came as an extra in a monthly trade with HalfP1NT.

Pours murky yellow/white. Some head, no retention. Plenty of CO2. Looks more like some kind of fruit juice.

Aroma is lager-like with spices present. Some alcohol present in the nose for sure.

Flavor is well integrated. Peppery, has some bite from the corriander. Only the slightest hint of anything citrus. Well done, no one spice is overpowering.

The body is very thick and oily. Still somehow its crisp and refreshing. I like this beer but I'm not sure how "to style" it is. (538 characters)

Single finger head on a murky pale golden body. Scattered lacing. Aroma of lemon custard, wheat, pale malts and cream. Flavor is very similar and creamy with lemon custard, orange peel, pale malts. Light body and light to medium carbonation. Nice double wit. Very flavorful and the booze are well hidden. (304 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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. (635 characters)

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice white head. The nose brings a good dose of citrus, stone fruits, wheat, and a bit of spice. The taste lays off a bit with just some mild lemon and peaches as well as a bit of wheat. Nice full feel for a fairly light-flavored brew. Good carbonation. Drinks really nicely and is one of the better examples of the style that I have had. (389 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

i liked this a lot, somewhere between a saison and a belgian wit, the pour is the worst feature, which unfortunately comes first. its clear and rusty yellow, with a ton of snow globey yeast particles hanging around that eventually settle out. there isnt much head, but the beer is excitable with a good rustle. the nose is fruity. orange peel and some spice, as well as a curious yeast bordering on something as funky as ommegang uses, but having a sweeter vanilla character to throw things off. in any event, it has some tartness but blends perfectly with the other fruit flavors. this is a light feeling beer, with pleasingly vibrant carbonation and only a light body. it was much better than i expected it to be, and am now 2 for 2 with beers from these guys. this was an easy 6er, and one i will buy again. id like to visit this place, i have a feeling theyve got a real good thing going. (892 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a surprisingly modest head that does leaves some nice lacing as it descends

Smell: Bready, with a sweet banana edge and some coriander and bitter orange tones

Taste: After an initial banana bread taste, the orange, coriander and lime flavors rise to the fore; by mid-palate, there is a distinct medicinal bitterness that overwhelms; after the swallow, the sweeter banana flavor offsets the medicine, to some extent, but the damage is done

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with prickly carbonation

Drinkability: This beer is just not up to the standards I expect from Southampton; the medicinal flavor here seems a bit off and is certainly off-putting (698 characters)

This brew poured out as a slightly darker color than I expected. The beer is not transparent at all, there is a good amount of haze in there for sure. The smell of the beer is a little citrusy with some sweet grainy aromas in there also. The taste of the of the beer gives off a little bit of a floral quality and some herbal citrus notes also. The mouthfeel of the beer was pretty good, they really managed to concentrate this brew into a thicker "double" feel. Overall I think this brew was really enjoyable and would probably drink it again one day. (552 characters)

Bottle courtesy of Moejuck: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a nice thick foamy head with better then average retention. Aroma of huge bubblegum wheat and coriander is interesting and quite different from the norm. Taste is spicy with a strange mix between some coriander and huge presence of wheat with a strange bubblegum feeling. Body is definitely full with some adequate carbonation. While this beer is very interesting and innovative, I wonder if bigger is always better and if in this particular case I would probably prefer a regular wit (Allagash, Ommegang..) to provide an interesting but somewhat easy refreshing option. (637 characters)

4.2/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with a slight haze to it, clearer than I was expecting, so I dumped the yeast in too. That's more like it - straw-colored and nearly opaque. Head retention is somewhat weak for the style.

Smell: Floral and grainy, semi-sweet, spicy, yeasty - this essentially smells like what you'd expect from a double witbier.

Taste & mouthfeel: Spicy, crisp, wheaty and surprisingly mellow, it's hard to believe this is 7% ABV. Less dry and fuller in body than most witbiers, but that's to be expected from a double, and it's by no means an overly sweet beer. The finish is biscuit-like and slightly tangy but ultimately very clean.

Notes: Received from dyan in our last trade. Thanks! (705 characters)

Holy smokes, this was a tasty Witbier.

22oz. bottle split into 2 Gueuze tumblers, with yeast swirled and poured evenly. Foam consisted of larger bubbles at first, then the added yeast formed a dense, spontaneous cap of head. Ale was an opaque orange with a touch of tan from the added yeast sediment.

Smell was earthy coriander spice and zesty orange juicyness. Wheat and yeast were also present, giving off a mild breadiness.

Big citrus flavor of orange juice, with a full body to match. Earthy coriander again, tangy tartness, yeasty. Peppery in the mildly dry aftertaste. Prickly burst of carbonation at the front of the tongue onward. Wheaty backbone gives it a smooth fullness and oomph. Very juicy. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. This blows away the Belgian 'Imperial Wit' (Jan de Lichte) I had last week...damn tasty.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Gossamer, pastel lemon that becomes crystal clear when backlit. The bright, snow white crown is gorgeous. It's a tight-bubbled masterpiece that occupies the glass from the nonic bulge on up. When it finally relents, thick sheets of lace occupy nearly all of the available surface area. I have rarely seen brighter, more pure colors in my life.

The nose is a good one, but I can't help feeling just a little let down. The biggest problem is that it's too muted, because I like what I'm able to appreciate. Soft is the operative word, with smooth edges all around. Lightly tangy wheat combines with mild coriander and a spritz of orange and lemon oil.

Given the timidity of the nose, the flavor is more than a pleasant surprise. Double White Ale tastes like what I would expect a big witbier brewed by a world-class brewery to taste like. This is truly fantastic stuff. Wits are usually light, airy and drinkable in quantity. Strap your helmets on for this one though. It's a monster in the best sense of the word.

The beer is massively malted and has an absolute bedrock bottom end that allows the other members of the flavor profile to shine like the sun. Sweet orange and lemon zest are at the center of the solar storm. Thankfully, coriander plays a supporting role. I like to taste coriander in my witbiers, but it's often overdone.

The best part about DWA is how Southampton emphasizes exactly those flavors that I would emphasize. Pulling off a witbier this huge is no easy feat and I'd venture to say that few other breweries could have done it. Alcohol is barely evident. I feel the same way that I feel about its presence in the best BSPAs. It's an important contributor to a big beer flavor profile that reminds its drinker that they're enjoying an alcoholic beverage, not mineral water.

A mouthfeel that's too big wouldn't have worked since this is still, at bottom, a wit. Thankfully, the mouthfeel that has been provided is just about perfect. It's full, heavily silky and borderline sticky, without crossing the line into ponderous. Even the carbonation manages to be Belgian beer lively without being over the top. A huge thank you to IrishRedRock for the bottle.

This is exemplary beer. From the eye pleasing purity of its appearance... to the full throttle flavor... to the incredible mouthfeel, Double White Ale grabs the 'best of style' mantle with the sheer force of its personality. If this is representative of the beer brewed by Southampton Publick House, then obtaining more of their bottled magic has just shot to the top of my list of life's necessities, right behind oxygen and food. On second thought, right behind oxygen. (2,667 characters)

A - Poured out a cloudy, golden-yellow color with a small, bubbly, white head. It left minimal lace.

S - It smelled very yeasty, with notes of banana, citrus, clove and wheat.

T - It tasted of clove, banana, wheat and yeast. Really a great tasting white ale.

M - It was crisp and very sharp with a smooth finish. A light to medium-bodied beer.

D - This is a really good witbier. It brings tons of well-balanced, great tasting flavors. (438 characters)

Picked this one up in a mixed sixer, and to be honest, had not had any of the Southampton stuff since it came to SC so I figured this was a good chance to try some of it out. A 12oz bottle served right out of the fridge, I chose to pour this one into an oversized wine glass to really let the aroma pop. A nice, somewhat hazy, and very bright golden yellow then came out of over me. Very nice carbonation was visible, with the chains of bubbles really just reaching up toward the top throughout the session. There was a good three finger high head of white foam that only very slowly faded away, and even once it was gone there was tons of side glass lace present. Pretty much a very good look for the style, I really thought it looked very nice indeed.

The aroma was somewhat light, but once you let it warm up it started to come out at you a little bit better. Very nice light fruits, hints of banana and apricot, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg really far in the back, with a touch of a pepper like smell as well. The flavor followed suit just the same, with a very nice, light body ale. Tons of carbonation and a really crisp, clean feeling. The first flavor to come over was the light grain, and a touch of yeast, some banana poking around in there as well, with a sparkling quality to it. Nice touch of bitter grapes toward the finish, giving that little bit of a hoppy touch to dry out the finish and get you ready for another sip. Not a hint of alcohol in here what so ever, as this was really solidly put together. I could have kept drinking this one all day long, it was just that good. Really a very nice, high quality ale.

Overall I thought this one was very good. I normally am not the biggest fan of the style, but this one hit just right. I was very nicely surprised and would definitely reach to try this one again. I would recommend picking this one up for a hot day, definitely a solid choice. (1,909 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, straw-colored body with a full, foamy, white head.

Smell: Aroma of coriander and dried orange peel with a vague underlying maltiness.

Taste: Delicate pale maltiness with a restrained honey-like sweetness. Strong spice component tasting of coriander, citrus peel, and white pepper. Low hop bitterness. Blip of acidity. Slightly sweet, slighty sour on the relatively crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: I still feel the whole trend of doubling or imperializing witbiers is entirely lost on me, they don't get twice as refreshing, quite the opposite, in fact. (632 characters)

A - One finger of tight, white foam on top of a slightly hazy, golden body. The head dissipates quickly and leaves no lace.

S - Peppery yeast with notes of tropical fruit, vanilla, and mild alcohol. Some light, spicy hops in the background with coriander and perhaps a bit of chamomile.

T - Spicy yeast and wheat up front with pepper and clove. Some light mango/kiwi fruit notes in the middle with smooth, honey and vanilla pilsner malt and more tart wheat. Finishes peppery and tart with orange, coriander and more smooth malt.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly dry finish.

D - This is interesting and drinkable and I like it more and more as I get towards the end of the glass. It strikes me as more of a saison than a wit, which I consider a good thing. The grain and yeast character work very well together with a complex and balanced blend of spice, fruit, and sweetness. It is hard to say what comes from the yeast and what comes from the spices, which suggests a skilled and delicate touch by the brewer. There is just a bit of excessive warmth from the alcohol, but that is a small price to pay for this otherwise excellent beer. (1,167 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a golden light amber color with a finger of foamy white head that goes away except for a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Mildly sweet from the malt with hints of spice from the yeast and perhaps a little fruit.

Taste: A sweet malty wheat flavor hits the tongue first. There is some spice and perhaps a hint of fruit, a lot like the smell. The fruit reminds me a bit of grape. The finish is crisp with perhaps a very little bit of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a reasonable amount of carbonation for the style. The finish is quite dry.

Overall: The only knock I have on this beer is that it isn't very exciting. I wasn't blown away, but it was good. (737 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

2005. Corked Champagne bottle. A mostly clear, just slightly hazy yellow-gold body teems with life beneath a two-finger head of bright white foam. The head retention is excellent; and it leaves short, solid, fading walls and long splashes of transient lace with each sip.

The nose is delicate with notes of fruit (peach, tangerine, lemon zest), subtle spice (coriander), vanilla, and the occasional whiff of bubblegum.

It's lightly zesty in the mouth with a medium-light body and very fine carbonation that lightly bristles and then warms to become cottony soft.

The flavor follows the lead of the nose, but with a wider breadth. It's initially fruity and wheatish (also with a note of vanilla); becoming more fruity and tart (lemon, tangerine) across the middle; and finishing with a very mild bitterness, some citrus rind, and a touch of spice that lingers oh-so-perfectly.

The balance is impeccable and the drinkability is brilliant! It's an interesting and exciting beer that retains all of its drinkability despite its increased size (and the alcohol never shows)! Not only is it worth seeking out; this is one of the beers that makes the United States the greatest brewing country in the world - where American beers surpass the quality of the originals from their home country!!! Find some! (1,310 characters)

A: Pours a fizzy bleached white head of about 1 finger that fades at a medium pace, with hazy banana wheat yellow colored beer.

N: A typical wit, with lots of wheat, banana, light spices, a little creamy malty sweetness, touch of citrus with a little lemongrass and hint of orange.

T: Mostly as expected, lots of wheat, again citrus with a touch of orange peel and lemongrass, some bitterness, light spices, but the only addition to this one is the maltiness is a little heavier than most. It's slightly thicker, creamier, and fairly sweet, but adds a decent crispness to it.

M: Medium body with good carbonation.

F: Finishes semi bitter, with more citrus, orange peel, lemongrass, etc. Light spices lingering that build a bit towards the finish. There's also a slight tanginess as well. It dries a bit but still leaves a lingering malty sweetness. This is essentially the model of an American witbier, but doesn't bombard with hops like some Americanized beers do. (970 characters)

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy yellow with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The smell is potent with yeast, spice & wheat and there’s a faint whiff of hops.

T: The yeast is as strong in the taste as it is in the smell, but it’s certainly there. Orange & lemon sweetness and coriander spice are the predominant flavors.

M: Crisp & smooth, high carbonation, light-to-medium body, clean finish.

D: Easy to drink, tasty, not filling and a better kick than most others in the style. Not only is this beer an excellent representation of the style, I believe it’s what all others in the style should hope to achieve. (721 characters)

Didn't know double white ales existed until this one and I thought it was very good. Tastes like a super wit basically, the alcohol is still hidden but the rest of the flavors are well more pronounced and has the spicy goodness you expect. It's a reasonable price and is super drinkable so give this one a go. (309 characters)

Pours a clouded gold with a thinner white head. Nose is butterscotch and a fair portion of it at that. Flavor carries some of the same with a generous amount of spices as well. More sweet than I would expect though, overall. Still nice though. Feel has a smaller carbonation that still bites. Liquid is slick and smooth. Fairly easy to drink. A good interpretation of a hard to hit style. (388 characters)

"Double White." Hmph. I'm reviewing as a witbier; the label identifies it as a "'double' version of [a] classic Belgian-style White Ale. Traditionally unfiltered and delicately spiced." Expectations are high; I really dug their Biere De Mars. "Brewed with Coriander, Orange, and Lemon Peel." Label art is green and appealing. Standard pry-off cap; it's branded and copper. 6.6% ABV according to the label. 12 fl oz brown glass bottle served into a conical Samuel Smith's pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

Acquired in a trade with michaellcoates; thanks again, man!

Served cold, straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger head of white colour. Not as thick as I'd like, but passable. No real creaminess per se, but it's not common in a witbier head. Retention is average at best, about 1-2 minutes. No real lacing to speak of; no "legs" either. No bubble show.

Body colour is a clearly unfiltered cloudy lemon yellow; somewhat dark for the style, actually - atypically so. No yeast particles are visible. Nontransparent. Translucent.

Overall, it's looking pretty standard for the style. Not unique or special, but there are no overt flaws.

Sm: Fresh lemon peel and accompanying citrusy esters. Hints of subtle yet delightful orange fruit. Yeah, that's a witbier alright. Fresh, clean, and inviting. Definite cilantro/coriander spicing. Clean pilsner and pale malts. Citrus peel. Zest. Spot-on for the style and quite attractive; I can't wait to try it.

No yeast character or alcohol is detectable. A subtle aroma of mild to moderate strength. Good execution overall for a witbier. Not quite sure what's "double" about it, but it's appealing.

T: Crisp pale malts, a bit of honey, pilsner malts, and above all else crisp wheat provide a foundation for well executed lemon and orange peel fruits with accompanying zesty esters. Banana. Peach/apricot. Maybe a dash of green apple buried beneath the wheat as it hits the climax. Hints of clove. Light yet complementary floral hop character. Good depth of flavour balanced against refreshing feel. Cilantro is more prominent than coriander, but both are subtly done and very well integrated. Flavour duration and intensity are typical of good examples of the style. Crisp and clean. Flavorful and enjoyable without being overbearing. Good balance. Nice complexity for the style, with some notable subtlety.

Mf: Crisp, clean, and nicely full-bodied. Carbonation is entirely too high, unfortunately - which does lend it a nice crisp bite but cuts back on drinkability. A light buttery character works well here. Smooth and wet. Too thick for the style. Nice presence on the palate overall, never coming off too heavy or overbearing. Hints of slightly high acidity for the style.

The overcarbonation is probably the biggest issue with this beer. But overall, the texture is well married to the flavour profile, facilitating full delivery of all of the well-executed notes.

Dr: Though the overcarbonation and fairly high ABV for the style reduce drinkability, this remains a fine witbier that I'd definitely get again. Southampton continues to impress me. I'll enjoy finishing my glass and I intend to revisit this on-draught. Probably one of the finer witbiers brewed in the USA; only a few paces behind Allagash White in my book.

Aside from the unusually high ABV for a witbier and full flavour, I'm not sure what makes this a "double" witbier. I do feel like it'd be a better beer with a lower ABV and far less carbonation, though.

12.22.14: Truncated notes from a fresh bottle provided by schlimenhaumer.

Pours a healthy white head with good retention. Body colour is a glowing copper.

Sm: Coriander, orange zest, wheat, herbs, Belgian spice.

T: Coriander/cilantro, orange and lemon zest, vague citrus, flaked wheat, and clean barley. A balanced enjoyable flavour profile with above average depth of flavour. Average intensity and duration of flavour.

Mf: Smooth, wet, refreshing, medium-bodied, and overcarbonated. Texture, for the most part, suits the taste.

O: Quite drinkable for its high ABV relative to the style. A nice take on a witbier.

Golden and cloudy. Relatively small head that distributes light lace on the side of the glass.

Strong farmhouse aromas much like Biere du Garde from France. Strong wheat aromas and fresh yeast, as expected.

Spicy flavors up front. Very high, but tight-bubbled carbonation, almost like champagne. The aftertaste has a light sourness that lasts for a long time. The body is heavier than most in this style. Some alcohol warmth at the end, too.

Okay, this is my least favorite style. Take that into consideration if you are reading this review. I believe that this is a well made witbier. If you like this style, I would certainly give it a try. My wife who likes this style very much said it was on the bitter side for her and that this one was "okay". (759 characters)
