2.85/5  rDev -29.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Fort Collins Brewing Pilsner glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average given the reputation of the brewery.

Served straight from the refrigerator and allowed to warm slightly over time. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger head of beige colour, very slight cream, alright thickness, and decent retention for the above average ABV. Colour is a slightly cloudy semitransparent pale yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Lemon peel citrus notes, light pale hop notes, and clean malts. A mild strength aroma.

T: Lemon peel citrus notes, backgrounded citrus hops, clean malts, and very slight vague hints of yeast. Pretty simple all around, but the alcohol doesn't come out. An interesting little brew with decent balance and experimental build. It's somewhat enjoyable, but I'd stop short of refreshing.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Somewhat light on the palate. Adequately carbonated. Somewhat thick.

Dr: Drinkable but far from great. A decent little wit that fails in its experimentation. I wouldn't get it again. Hides its ABV well.

3.15/5  rDev -21.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

22oz bottle, dated 03/15/12. Pours a hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is wheaty malts, some soapy chamomile, a little corriander and some musty yeast.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malts, spices and some musty yeast and a dry finish. It's a little subdued and watery. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent wit. A bit watery and overly sweet, spiced and alcoholic.

3.5/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Looks like the consistency of a normal with the color of a bright pilsener. Good foam. Bright yellow.

Smell: Yeastiness that has fermented more than usual. Very pungent. Light on the citrus and spice notes.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Great creaminess in the mouthfeel. Earthiness that reminds me of the double/imperial pilsener I tried in at Dogfish Head. Besides that, it's not great, but it is ok.

Drinkability: Besides the alcohol and thickness level, this isn't that special, and the lack of other qualities might not attract the usual wit crowd.

Had at our tasting session last night in Farmington, NM.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tasting glass. A big 1 1/2" head poured onto a hazy yellow colored liquid. Big lemon zest in the aroma. Mild tartness on the nose. Taste is decent with an earthy type of feel. The lemon keeps on giving with this one. Certainly citrus forward all the way through. Easy drinking and pretty good overall. Not my favorite style of beer, but I wouldn't pass this one up if I saw it at a good price.

Served in a Devil's Backbone willibecher.

Thanks to papollo for this bottle!

I've had plenty o' whites/wits before, but never a double version. The excitement is palpable. It pours a lightly hazed lemon straw topped by about a finger or so of white foam. The nose is pretty typical wit fair, comprising lemon zest, coriander, wheat, cardamom, pepper, and a hint of orange peel. The taste is pretty similar, with notes of lemon peel, coriander, cardamom, and tangelo zest. The body is fairly light, with a light moderate carbonation and a "wet" feel. Overall, a rather solid wit, nothing overtly special (or overtly "double"), but tasty nonetheless and easy to drink.

Bomber I believe dated 4/19/12 poured to tulip the beer arrives an opaque and hazy golden straw color with a thin 1/2 finger white cap which quickly fades to surface film, some lacing. The nose is rather mild though toasted malts, the wit yeast and a fair amount of alcohol heat are present. The flavor is an improvement with a nice base of toasted barley, earthy hop character, mild bitterness. Hints of orange peel here and there. Still not a lot going on here. The toast flavor and wit yeast linger for a while. Alcohol is a bit noticeable. Finishes a bit dry with a lingering yeasty character. Adequately carbonated. Overall, I wasn't sure what to expect from a double white, but this is nice, not great, not bad.

not quite ad dynamic and drinkable as the wildflower wheat they make, but this big brother version is delicious as well. its hazed and very pale yellow in color with a lasting inch of white head. the nose on this is very herbal among the belgian yeast fruit esters. i pick up as much coriander in this as i do in almost any other beer, its close to dominant, but slightly sweet wheat malt supports it, and a hint of citrus cleans it up. the flavor journey is just like the aromatic one, ending in orange soaked sweet white wheat, with all the herbal qualities coming first. alcohol warms me up but i cant taste it. belgian yeast gives this a light fruity vibe and very radiant carbonation. it drinks a little heavier than i like my wits to go down, but it works in a colder weather context, something many wits do not do. its a shame marble left the colorado market for the most part, i have always admired their beers.

Pale orange in color, hazy, 2-3 fingers of intense, fluffy white head. Very nice lacing. I think this is as stellar of an example as it comes.

Slightly citrus, tinny, with a strong grainy front.

Orange, and other citrus flavors. Slightly tart, and whole grainy, with some hints of mango? Admittedly I haven't my head completely around the Wit style, but I do think this is the tastiest I've had. I've had the Sam Adams, and it was hella boozy, but this is not...there is no alcohol that I can detect. Good thing or bad thing, pick your poison, doesn't really affect my opinion.

Feel is light and pillowy. Overall pleasant.

Great drinkability. The alcohol is greatly hidden, and drinking in succession should be a cake walk.

Inch tal white fluffy head. Wonder lacing lacing left. Totally turned on right now. Great head retention. Bright yellow color.

Cirus zest. Slight funk it seems.

More citrusness. lemon zest. Doesnt even feel close to 7% to me.

Lite on the palate. Good carbonation.

Highly drinkable. Didnt blow me away but not a bad thing to say about this one. Thanks for the share egrace84.

Poured into a pilsner glass and what a beaut to behold! A thick, white, two-finger head and a slightly cloudy, whitish-gold color. I really like the unfiltered appearance. Plenty of carbonation and lacing. Aromas of yeast, citrus and a little banana. Crisp, refreshing taste that completely hides the ABV. Flavors of wheat, citrus, and some spices with a rather dry finish. Really light on the palate, almost like a pilsner, with excellent carbonation. This is a refreshing, tasty white ale that is perfect for the Summer. This is going to be a regular part of my rotation.

A hazy yellow color with a medium-sized white head. There was a bit of lace.

As promised, the beer had a spicy, fruity aroma with a background of wheat.

Taste followed form. Coriander, orange/lemon, and wheat. Didn't notice any alcohol.

Refreshing, very drinkable.

Bomber poured into a hefe glass.

A: Very classical looking wheat. Cloudy pale-orange/golden color with a fluffy white head that sticks around for a little while and laces nicely.

S: Very nice. Reminds me of the Schofferhoffer hefeweizen I used to drink in Germany. Some banana, some wheaty malt, very nice.

T: Pretty classic hefe, but good. Stronger, thicker, more "meaty" than most hefes. Again, reminds me a lot of the German hefes, but a bit sweeter and not as dry.

M: Nice. Lightly carbonated, not too thin but not a stout, really nice for the style.

D: Very drinkable. Doesn't taste at all like 7% ABV, and I think that someone who doesn't drink a lot could easily mistake this one's strength and be in trouble!
