3.9/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Picked up a 12 oz single from TW Arrowhead 8-12-19 for $2.29. Best by 9/17/19 but refrigerated since purchase. Consumed on 10/9/19.

Beer poured a cloudy orange with a soap bubble head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is estery, of bananas and pears.

Taste is banana and pear forward with a hint of pepper combining nicely with a pilsner malt base. Finish is balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall i like the flavors imparted by the yeast strain, definitely worthy of a shot!

Cloudy yellow colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells of Belgian yeast. Scent is spice and bread dough. Black pepper and coriander. Lesser scents of ginger and banana. Faint cilantro scent.

Starts out mild and slightly sweet. Tastes mainly of coriander. Taste is not as strong as the smell with this one. Slight cardamom taste.

Mouthfeel is about right.

Overall it is a Belgian Wit, but there are better.

It was exceptionally smooth. The color was clear and it looked watery, though the taste was actually quite strong. I have no idea what double white,as opposed to white beer is

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours hazy and honey colored with a one finger cap; splashy lacing

Smell: Wheat bread, orange peel and spicy phenols (the Belgian yeast along with the adjuncts of coriander and grains of paradise)

Taste: Wheat bread forward, with orange peel flavors developing; through the middle, the phenolic tones build along with bubblegum, coriander and, in the finish, the grains of paradise

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A little sweeter than the typical Wit, this is still well-brewed and enjoyable for those who like the style

Thanks, M_chav, for the opportunity

Got it this draft from all places Buffalo Wild Wings while visiting some friends in Santa Fe NM. Great flavor and aroma, the only bad thing is that where I live I cannot get it.

I'm not a big fan of the hefeweizen style beers but this one is better than most of them and with an ABV% of 7.0 it's certainly worth what you pay for it.

Can from ABV.

A hazy light orange with a dense, off-white head that falls off to a ring rapidly leaving little lacing, this looks solid. The nose is great. Grainy wheat, refreshing and mildly understated citrus note, a blend of orange and lemon and some spices. The mildly bitter grains of paradise are noticeable, along with a mild yeasty phenol note. The palate opens bright and refreshing with a blend of wheat, crackers, fresh oranges and just a little honey. While light in body, there's a dextrinous feel that acts as a backbone for the spice notes. White pepper and grains of paradise are present, along with a touch of coriander. Drying and mildly tart on the finish, there's a blend of citrus and spice that lingers. Quite excellent, this reminds me of the Southampton Double White.

From the tap poured into a pint glass. Nice yellow color, slightly cloudy. Thin head with decent lacing. Fragrant floral smell, very pleasant. The taste is nicely spicy with pepper and coriander. Taste is also floral, fruity and bright. Very enjoyable!

12 oz can. Pours hazy yellow, thin white head disappears almost instantly. Taste booms with big banana flavor, cloves, mild spice. Balanced with no off flavors, clean crisp semi dry finish. Medium slippery mouthfeel. This is an excellent witbier, Marble continues to impress.

Cloudy golden liquid. Looks like a banana smoothie. Sticky lacing. 4.5

Smells like a lot of banana, clovey and a light Belgian yeast. 4.25

Very hefe like in flavor, with a bursting banana flavor complemented by clove spice. Some fruitier flavors, orange and grapefruit, join the fray and take this beer to a different dimension. The finish, however, is very hefe like with a lingering minerally, earthy and very bread-like malt quality. 4.25

Lively carbonation and spice make for a festive-feeling drink. But it still has a light and refreshing quality that belies the 7% ABV. The finish is dry and a bit like toast, lingering with a ruddy but delicious feel. 4

Very easily the best of this style I've ever had. I wasn't even aware of the ABV until recently and I've had this beer a lot. Extremely drinkable and refreshing, crisp and delicious. Nothing beats this.

A- Hazy straw yellow-golden body, half finger white head, good retention time, nice lacing.

S- Citrus, peppers, coriander, lemon zest, wheat, grass. Solid, nothing spectacular for the style, although it does smell a bit sweeter, presumably from it's double nature.

F- Wheat, mild grainy sweetness, citrus, clove, spices, minerals, peppers. Nice complexity, although it's slightly boozy for what it offers.

M- Solidly drinkable, although there is a little bit of booziness on the backend. Nice spicy finish on the backend. Solid carbonation, a nice mild slickness to it.

O- Solid double wit. Spices are there, but could use a bit more to balance out the extra sweetness and ABV.

Pours a hazy straw color with a fizzy white head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smells of citrus, coriander, and some grains.

Tastes of some grainy sweetness and citrus on the backend. Malts lead off with the grainy sweetness and some bread. A bit of wheat sharpness cuts through in the middle. This gives way to some orange sweetness. Finishes fairly clean.

Moithfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a very nice witbier.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pale gold body with a rich, fluffy, lasting white head (4.5). Dank, grassy aroma initially then ending with a slight citrus note; spicy (4.0). Zesty, citric flavors; slightly lemony; mild tartness (4.25). Medium-light body; crisp and dry finish (3.75).

A very fine, easy drinking witbier. Very appealing to the eye and tastes exquisite. Light and effervescent yet delicately distinctive flavors, almost floral in nature. The bitterness has a subdued prickliness that adds a nice touch to the overall beer.

not quite ad dynamic and drinkable as the wildflower wheat they make, but this big brother version is delicious as well. its hazed and very pale yellow in color with a lasting inch of white head. the nose on this is very herbal among the belgian yeast fruit esters. i pick up as much coriander in this as i do in almost any other beer, its close to dominant, but slightly sweet wheat malt supports it, and a hint of citrus cleans it up. the flavor journey is just like the aromatic one, ending in orange soaked sweet white wheat, with all the herbal qualities coming first. alcohol warms me up but i cant taste it. belgian yeast gives this a light fruity vibe and very radiant carbonation. it drinks a little heavier than i like my wits to go down, but it works in a colder weather context, something many wits do not do. its a shame marble left the colorado market for the most part, i have always admired their beers.

Poured into a pilsner glass and what a beaut to behold! A thick, white, two-finger head and a slightly cloudy, whitish-gold color. I really like the unfiltered appearance. Plenty of carbonation and lacing. Aromas of yeast, citrus and a little banana. Crisp, refreshing taste that completely hides the ABV. Flavors of wheat, citrus, and some spices with a rather dry finish. Really light on the palate, almost like a pilsner, with excellent carbonation. This is a refreshing, tasty white ale that is perfect for the Summer. This is going to be a regular part of my rotation.

Excellent white. Everything I look for in this style.

Unfiltered look . Thick golden straw with a thick head and strong lacing.
Belgian yeast really pops in the nose with a little wheat in the back.
Nice for this style amazingly refreshing. Balanced mix of orange and yeast in the front with some malt to round it out. 7% ABV but no noticeable alcohol. This is what I look for in this style.
Semi creamy mouth feel.

If only this beer was distributed I n DFW it would be a daily drinker.

Aroma of bread and yeast...slight sweetness. Fuzzy white gold color with some small particulates. Nice layer of small white heads. Initial taste is very positive with both significant body and refreshing wit beer sensations...wheat, bread, amber sweet malt, light citrus/lemon, very subtle banana, clove, carob, white pepper. Overall very drinkable and a bit more abv than a regular wit, white, or hefeweizen. Additionally, great price point for the 22oz bottles...same as their lovely double IPA.

Bomber poured into a hefe glass.

A: Very classical looking wheat. Cloudy pale-orange/golden color with a fluffy white head that sticks around for a little while and laces nicely.

S: Very nice. Reminds me of the Schofferhoffer hefeweizen I used to drink in Germany. Some banana, some wheaty malt, very nice.

T: Pretty classic hefe, but good. Stronger, thicker, more "meaty" than most hefes. Again, reminds me a lot of the German hefes, but a bit sweeter and not as dry.

M: Nice. Lightly carbonated, not too thin but not a stout, really nice for the style.

D: Very drinkable. Doesn't taste at all like 7% ABV, and I think that someone who doesn't drink a lot could easily mistake this one's strength and be in trouble!

Had at our tasting session last night in Farmington, NM.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tasting glass. A big 1 1/2" head poured onto a hazy yellow colored liquid. Big lemon zest in the aroma. Mild tartness on the nose. Taste is decent with an earthy type of feel. The lemon keeps on giving with this one. Certainly citrus forward all the way through. Easy drinking and pretty good overall. Not my favorite style of beer, but I wouldn't pass this one up if I saw it at a good price.

Inch tal white fluffy head. Wonder lacing lacing left. Totally turned on right now. Great head retention. Bright yellow color.

Cirus zest. Slight funk it seems.

More citrusness. lemon zest. Doesnt even feel close to 7% to me.

Lite on the palate. Good carbonation.

Highly drinkable. Didnt blow me away but not a bad thing to say about this one. Thanks for the share egrace84.

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Fort Collins Brewing Pilsner glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average given the reputation of the brewery.

Served straight from the refrigerator and allowed to warm slightly over time. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger head of beige colour, very slight cream, alright thickness, and decent retention for the above average ABV. Colour is a slightly cloudy semitransparent pale yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Lemon peel citrus notes, light pale hop notes, and clean malts. A mild strength aroma.

T: Lemon peel citrus notes, backgrounded citrus hops, clean malts, and very slight vague hints of yeast. Pretty simple all around, but the alcohol doesn't come out. An interesting little brew with decent balance and experimental build. It's somewhat enjoyable, but I'd stop short of refreshing.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Somewhat light on the palate. Adequately carbonated. Somewhat thick.

Dr: Drinkable but far from great. A decent little wit that fails in its experimentation. I wouldn't get it again. Hides its ABV well.
