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.

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.

Must try.
