Southampton Double White | 6.6% ABV
This is a truly special brew and a Southampton original. It is a “double strength” or “double gravity” version of a classic Belgian-style white ale. White Ales (or Witbiers) are called white because their light color and cloudy appearance make them appear almost white. They are unfiltered wheat-based brews with a unique citrus and spice character that comes from the use of orange peel and ground coriander seed in the brewing process. Southampton Double White honors the original Belgian white ale style, but it has a little more of everything— more complex orangey/citrusy fruitiness, a slightly fuller body, more alcohol and a more satisfying finish. It's delicate, balanced and every bit as refreshing as the original style, but more intense.
