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.

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.

Like a good Saison that got touched with some citrus. I truly don't detect any alcohol flavor, which can mean one of two things. In any case, this is one of my favorite Wits. Maybe the style just needs a little more juice. Rich, sharp, creamy carbonation. Looks good in the tumbler with a pale wheat color and nice lacing. Clean, rather malty, nicely kissed with some German wheat flavors. Spice is restrained. All the flavors are in balance. I'm glad I tried this among the many Marble beers that seem to be all over Santa Fe.

Served in a Devil's Backbone willibecher.

Thanks to papollo for this bottle!

I've had plenty o' whites/wits before, but never a double version. The excitement is palpable. It pours a lightly hazed lemon straw topped by about a finger or so of white foam. The nose is pretty typical wit fair, comprising lemon zest, coriander, wheat, cardamom, pepper, and a hint of orange peel. The taste is pretty similar, with notes of lemon peel, coriander, cardamom, and tangelo zest. The body is fairly light, with a light moderate carbonation and a "wet" feel. Overall, a rather solid wit, nothing overtly special (or overtly "double"), but tasty nonetheless and easy to drink.

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.

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.
