Southampton Publick House Double White Ale

On Saturday, Nic and I went to her cousin’s house for lunch, which turned into dinner. He’s also into beer, so we tried a bunch of different ones (so expect a lot of posts). I forgot to grab Nicole’s camera, so there aren’t any pictures of the brews. This first one, I grabbed a six-pack of. I’m stuck in between summer and fall beers now and this was chilled in the case at the beer store. I’ve also read some good things about it, so I grabbed it up.

ABV: 6.7%

Style: Witbier

Trivia: This is called a “double white” because it is a double strength or double gravity version of a Belgian White.

Random: I seriously can’t wait for it to be cool. It is way too hot. I hate the summer. Ugh.

This brew poured with a two finger pure white head that left minimal lacing. There was a lot of carbonation visible through the straw yellow body that was slightly cloudy. On the nose, there was lots of citrus that manifested mostly as lemon. There was not a lot of spice apparent on the nose, which surprised me. On the taste, the spice came out to play. I also got some banana on the taste, which I didn’t expect since this isn’t a hefe. The carbonation that is visible through the body comes out to dance on the tongue. The citrus also works in concert with the other flavors. The brew finishes quick with citrus. This is what would be a nice alternate to a “summer” type of beer. It’s light and fruity, but not watery. It is especially good served very cold. I would definitely have this again.

Untappd Rating: 3.0/5.0
