Fresh bottle, sent to me by TPerkinsBrewer
Nice, clear, medium-hued golden amber color, with a slight pinkish tint. Three finger head of thick, frothy, white foam with a slight pink tint. Retention is great. Lacing is thick and clumpy.
Smells like you'd expect a nice Belgian brew to smell.
Yeasty, citrusy and a touch of wheat. Very nice spicey notes come through. A little sweetness, too. All with a nice floral touch.
Citrus fruits smuggled in a floral bouquet. Pears, apples and peaches. Nice level of spiciness. Some candi sugar sweetness, to balance it all out, abit. Raisins, white grapes and hints of black currants. Slight touch of banana.
The finish is very smooth. Not too sweet, although there is a touch of sweetness. Not too dry, either. Almost like a wine finish, more so than a beer.
This beer is so creamy and yet so smooth, light and easy to drink, also. Probably the closest a beer, for me, has come to feeling like silk.
Truly, a highly drinkable brew. Especially a nice spring or autumn day. Which is what it's like here, today, during the second week of February. (Wow.)
Supposedly, this beer has 10%ABV, but I can't detect it, at all. This fruit-bomb is so damn smooth.
To quote Tracy Jordan, "I love it so much, I want to take it behind the junior high and make it pregnant!".

3.9/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Deep orange, bronze color and mostly opaque. Two fingers of rich, creamy head on the pour never lets up. Provides a dense coating of lace with each sip.
Fresh orange, coriander and mild yeast aroma. Hint of white wine.
Dense, wheat-like malt character. Hints of corn. White grapes. Mild yeast notes suggesting cloves. Subtle herbal hop, provides a delicate spicy layer. Fairly well balanced. A little funky in the finish.
Full bodied. Yeasty, grainy texture. Slick feel and sticky on the lips. Descent carbonation.
Not bad. I think this is only the second double wit I've ever tried. I enjoyed the white wine addition. Nice complexity.
