Southampton Double White
From Southampton – In creating Southampton Double White, Phil Markowski turned his fascination with the style into a quest to master one of the most challenging beers to brew. Phil stuck to the tradition of using the classic Belgian white ale ingredients like unmalted wheat, oats, coriander and orange peel, but he put his unique spin on the style by creating a “Double White” version.
Southampton Publick House – Southampton Double White – 12 oz. bottle poured into an English pint glass. 6.6% abv. From Online trade.
Appearance: Pours a bright cloudy yellow with a 1/8 inch layer of white film.
Aroma: Bread dough, citrus, banana and light spice.
Taste: Orange banana juice with a slightly spicy finish with a touch of bread crust.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and fizzy.
Overall: A very bold fruity wheat beer. I am glad this wasn’t all thick and syrupy like Samuel Adams Imperial White. Really quite drinkable for a style I wouldn’t go after.
