3.58/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bomber I believe dated 4/19/12 poured to tulip the beer arrives an opaque and hazy golden straw color with a thin 1/2 finger white cap which quickly fades to surface film, some lacing. The nose is rather mild though toasted malts, the wit yeast and a fair amount of alcohol heat are present. The flavor is an improvement with a nice base of toasted barley, earthy hop character, mild bitterness. Hints of orange peel here and there. Still not a lot going on here. The toast flavor and wit yeast linger for a while. Alcohol is a bit noticeable. Finishes a bit dry with a lingering yeasty character. Adequately carbonated. Overall, I wasn't sure what to expect from a double white, but this is nice, not great, not bad.

A hazy yellow color with a medium-sized white head. There was a bit of lace.

As promised, the beer had a spicy, fruity aroma with a background of wheat.

Taste followed form. Coriander, orange/lemon, and wheat. Didn't notice any alcohol.

Refreshing, very drinkable.

22oz bottle, dated 03/15/12. Pours a hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is wheaty malts, some soapy chamomile, a little corriander and some musty yeast.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malts, spices and some musty yeast and a dry finish. It's a little subdued and watery. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent wit. A bit watery and overly sweet, spiced and alcoholic.

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

Bomber served cold into a goblet.

Double white is a hazy golden yellow color with stick whitehead that settles with some nice lacing left behind.

Aroma is spicy and fruity with great coriander and lemon peel character.

Flavor is well balanced and well done. It doesn't overwhelm with spices but rather gives just enough it let you know what went in to making it. A good dose of sweetness up front with citrus and coriander in the middle.

Mouthfeel is light in body and perfectly carbonated.

Overall really well done and worth looking for if you like big Belgian wits.

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.

Appearance: Looks like the consistency of a normal with the color of a bright pilsener. Good foam. Bright yellow.

Smell: Yeastiness that has fermented more than usual. Very pungent. Light on the citrus and spice notes.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Great creaminess in the mouthfeel. Earthiness that reminds me of the double/imperial pilsener I tried in at Dogfish Head. Besides that, it's not great, but it is ok.

Drinkability: Besides the alcohol and thickness level, this isn't that special, and the lack of other qualities might not attract the usual wit crowd.

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.

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.

Pale orange in color, hazy, 2-3 fingers of intense, fluffy white head. Very nice lacing. I think this is as stellar of an example as it comes.

Slightly citrus, tinny, with a strong grainy front.

Orange, and other citrus flavors. Slightly tart, and whole grainy, with some hints of mango? Admittedly I haven't my head completely around the Wit style, but I do think this is the tastiest I've had. I've had the Sam Adams, and it was hella boozy, but this is not...there is no alcohol that I can detect. Good thing or bad thing, pick your poison, doesn't really affect my opinion.

Feel is light and pillowy. Overall pleasant.

Great drinkability. The alcohol is greatly hidden, and drinking in succession should be a cake walk.
