4.25/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Quite excited to finally have gotten my hands on a fifth of this. Popped a little cooler than usual since I'm sure this will take at least an hour to finish. Poured into my favourite pinot glass quite without incident.

Body is a slightly hazy and insanely orange in colour. Oddly chromatic with yellow edges and a reddish core. Very even streams of champagne-like bubbles come up to form a small galaxy of lace rather than true head, but only after hanging as if suspended in time just near the top.

Smell is vinous, spicy, and malty as sin. One of the best candi-malt characters I've ever sniffed from an American brew. Bubblegum. A bit of oak, but only just. Corriander, but not in isolation - blended with some orange just like the old Forbidden Fruit. A little grapefruit. White pepper. Booze is clear, but lays low.

Taste is sweet at first and dry to finish. Vinous and vinous, orange rind really comes out. A bit bitter on the tail end, juuush suggesting hops. A little more subdued than I expected from the nose. The 1/10th alcohol managed to pick up some quite nice vanillin notes from the oak. Hints of peach skin.

Mouthfeel is just downright creamy. A little on the sticky side, but not for too long. Booze is enough to tingle the lips and warm the throat. Carbonation is really, really well balanced. Only loses a point from perfection for the slight coating of the inner lip and a slight loss of carbonation after the hour it takes to get thru a beast like this.

Nothing traditional about this, but full of surprises. The boys from Milton, DE have done it again at being wacky but not forgetting to be GOOD.

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.
