3.6/5  rDev -6%

Enjoyed in a pilsner glass

A: pours a lightly hazy straw color with a ton of creamy slightly off white head which lingers beautifully and is comprised mostly of tiny bubbles, leaves a nice amount of thick creamy lacing on the glass
S: slight citrus scent, more so juicy than peel, bit of a musty earthy depth to it through the middle, perhaps yeast character
T: woah, alcohol is definitely there, slight juicy orange character is definitely there through the middle, its very alcoholic through the finish, leaves the mouth with a taste thats slightly earthy as i had seen in the scent, its has definitely grown on me as it has warmed up, mellowed out the alcohol nicely and brought more of the grains to the front, now that earthy character has become desirable
M: vitrually no carbonation, drinks silkily and has a slightly astringent character through the finish which lingers dryly across the palate long afterwards
O: its a little bit hot, id imagine that a few months in the dark might really help to even it out but id be afraid of losing the brightness of the white character

Growler filled at Yorktown Bev, Ytown, NY.

Pours lightly hazed lighter amber, moderate off white head, goes to a collar, film and moderate strands of fine lacing.

Mild nose of coriander and sweet light malts.

Bold wit, with ample honey and vanilla infused malts, more coriander, and fruity sweet goodness. Heady brew, tasty and quite enjoyable as a a summer sipper and with salads and spicy food.

3.18/5  rDev -17%

Poured into a Victory Nonic

A- Typical hazy yellow/gold wit appearance. Tall and long lasting eggshell tinted head.

S- Sweet bready coriander & citrus peel nose.

T- Quite sweet, yeasty fruitiness, spice and a nice hop bitterness to finish.

M- Retrained carbonation makes this easy to drink, it's got some body to it.

O- Nicely done but much like the other wit/double wits it just doesn't grab me...not to say it's undrinkable, just kinda pedestrian.

A biggish head that fades rather quickly to a thin covering and a bit of lace here and there. Very cloudy with yeast and a deep orange gold color. Smell is quite nice with with wheat malt, lemon, corriander and a pronounced banana fruitiness that is very hefe like. Taste follows the nose quite a bit with tart dryness in the finish and a crisp alcohol bite that lingers a bit. Malt core is solid and twangy. Some honey like sweetness and a the usual orange peel a curacao pepper. Yeast is well forward and again reminiscent of a weizenbock, incorporating a bit of clove. Indeed this beer is rather like a cross between a Vitus and an Imperial Wit. Yum! Feel is smooth and crisp with tingley, fine textured carbonation. This brew has it all for me. Quenching and despite the alcoholic edge rather drinkable. A great example of the style and a great value at my local distributor.

One of the strongest whits I've encountered yet. Hazy deep golden hue with a giant he'd, but not nearly as puffy as what you expect from a whit. Nose is much like long trails double white yet bigger. Fruity pebbles, coriander, bright fruit bowl and some soap.

Huge bright fruitiness, again, like Belgian white by long trail just bigger with a few mishaps here and there from a recipe just being multiplied rather than adjusted for.

Still though pretty awesome as a "double Belgian white" with just a few off flavors including some soapiness. Bit more detectable wheat as well.

A: The beer is hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a finger high bright white head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. A very, very slight amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There are aromas of orange peel in the nose along with some notes of lemon. Some hints of alcohol are also perceptible if you hold your nostrils close to the surface.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has lots of flavors of orange peel. There are also some slight hints of alcohol, but these aren’t very noticeable.
M: It feels on the low end of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn’t that difficult to drink considering its strength for a witbier because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste, although I wouldn’t really consider it to be very refreshing or thirst-quenching.

3.53/5  rDev -7.8%

Poured from a bomber into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with an amber hue. There is a half finger of off white head that fades to a thick ring around the pour.

Smell: Slightly sweet light malt with a banana presence. I'm getting a slight citrus tartness with some Belgian yeast notes.

Taste: Some Belgian spice with banana notes. There is a citrus tartness along with an apple note. The imperialness makes this one a bit too heavy here.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: I think I would have preferred this one as a regular wit, a bit lighter and more refined. Still a good beer, but not my favorite.

3.49/5  rDev -8.9%

A - Very hazy bright yellow with a hint of orange. Head is a 1/2 inch that seems to stick around for a while. Lacing is fairly decent.
S - Somewhat of an artificial lemon, with very little actual wheat, and a somewhat fruity body.
T - Not bad. It's far from the traditional style, with little actual dry yeast or any hops. Mostly just a mild lemon aid flavor (not very sour) next to some fruity yeasts.
M - The best part of this beer it's a double Witbier with a very well hidden ABV.

Overall its fairly tasty in a very artificial way. For 5 bucks though it's not the worst bomber I had.

3.21/5  rDev -16.2%

Poured into a pilsner glass from a bottle. Very strong spicy nose. Fruity aroma. Very hazy pale orange color. Head faded quickly, minimal lacing.

Strong fruity / banana taste to start, full tasting. Surprisingly smooth finish for the strong start. Call me crazy but I am picking up a peppery hint as it is going down?

I will certainly finish this beer but not sure I will seek it out again.

3.85/5  rDev +0.5%

A: Pours a hazy dark golden yellow approaching orange in color with an extremely light amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall white head that reduces to a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Lots of aromas of orange peel along with some light amounts of alcohol. There is a light presence of spices/clove as well.

T: Flavors of lemon and fairly strong presence of orange peel. There is a pleasant amount of clove/spice with a very light alcohol presence in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Kind of a new style for me here, the Double White - this is likely the strongest witbier that I have ever. There is a slight presence of the alcohol in both the taste and smell. Not the easiest beer to drink but still enjoyable. Possibly a little too intense for me... not as refreshing as I expect/enjoy in a witbier.

First had: Philly Beer Scene Tasting panel with Matt Falco at Victory Brewing Company, Downingtown, PA

I was privileged enough to be on the tasting panel for PBS Magazine, along with Bill Covaleski of Victory and Greg Ramirez of Exton Beverage. This was one of 21 beers we sampled during the session.

Poured a hazy golden-yellow color with a half inch or so of foamy white head that retained rather well. Pale malts in the aroma, wheaty profile, light spice and citrus notes. Taste is fairly complex, moving from sugary sweet to citrusy sour and back again, yeast and floral hops as afterthoughts. Alcohol is fairly noticeable but well within tolerance. Light-medium body, and a pretty interesting brew overall.
