Not sure sure why this is rated so low. If you've ever had a Wittekerke, which is great IMO, this is more or less, an Imperial Wittekerke.

My first time coming across a Double Witbier, and I'd be happy to drink it again.

Very underwhelmed with this beer. Not much to say about it.

Appearance: Large, dense off-white head crowns a hazy, yellow-brown body. Thin, unbroken, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls. The head retains quite well.

Aroma: Deeply spicy aroma of bananas, apples, white bread, orange rind, coriander, and especially sweet alcohol.

Taste: Begins with sweet and spicy warming alcohol, soon followed by bitter apple rind, bananas, sweet orange rind and coriander. In the middle of the taste, sweet cookie dough flavors manifest. The relatively high ABV (7.5%) presents very well, being pleasantly warming, but without hot solvent notes. Late in the taste, there are some mildly bitter herbal hops, which linger on past the close of the taste.

Mouth feel: Smooth, velvety, and full, with slight carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Quite nice, and a rather different take on a winter seasonal beer.

Presentation: Packaged in a twenty-five point four ounce Belgian-style bomber with a cork and cage, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at Cost Plus World Market in Texas for $6.99.
