The Southampton Double White poured a hazy, light golden yellow color with a pen-width white head. The aroma had mostly wheat with strong citrus and spice notes.
The body is smooth on the palate but crisp around the edges. There is a lot of wheat and a light sweetness up front. Bananas are apparent as well as citrus notes that lead to a very nice light finish with a light tart/sour aspect.
The beer left a small amount of spotted lace on the glass.
Overall, this is a great beer, a refreshing white ale that is perfect for hot summer days. The ABV is fairly high for a wheat so downing a six pack is not likely.
This beer is fairly versatile when pairing with food. Southampton Double White would go great with a light romaine salad made with pairs as well as a flaky white fish cooked with some white wine and garlic.Producer: Southampton Ales & Lagers
