From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue VI:
Double this, double that, marketing or an actual style? The brewers differ as they say they're taking a traditional beer and are doing it American style, and we are fine with that. Pours out a hazy beige-amber hue, in tradition we swirled the yeast into the glass. Not recommend with this beer unless you don't mind big chunks of yeast swimming in your glass. We opted to pour a sample sans yeast. The lacing is good enough to get by and sticks here and there. Fresh ground coriander and some citric peel in the nose, mild plum fruitiness from the alcohol and a neutral yeastiness. Slick and crisp with a somewhat full body. Sweet maltiness meets the first half of the coriander and mellow citric peel. The alcohol comes in with some warmth and spice and pairs up with the second bitter half of the coriander and a modest hop bitterness. Maltiness stays strong as does all of the other flavors, some plum and apple fruitiness with a mild yeast flavor middle to end. Finishes slightly dry.
We were worried this one was going to come off soapy as many American brewed White Ales and Double White Ales do, but not here. Balance is this beer's middle name, drinkability does not suffer either. Well done guys!
