COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp & lively, the hazy smoothness of this unfiltered White Ale is roused by the crackling of spring spices. From a hint of sweetness from orange peel & plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the subtle blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way. Cheers!

Bottle. Granola colored (says my daughter) cloudy enough with white head and lace. First thing that strikes me is the sort of plummy hint to the aroma. Theyíre saying, Weíre doing this slightly different, making it our own, so to speak. Problem is itís gross. It has a really plummy aroma and plummy sour-sweetness that cloys. How can they fuck this up? Oh yeah, plums. If this tasted exactly like Hoegaarden I would buy a case of it because itís reasonably priced and I hate A-B/Inbev. But itís gross.

Cloudy orange with a foamy head. Lots of citrus, pepper, and light honey. Sounds better than it tastes though.

Great refreshing and drinkable beer. Nice aroma of coriander and other spices. Worth to try.

Appearance: typical good witbier, with a hazy light orange and yellow body, short creamy white head, decent lacing. Aroma: good wit aroma, with coriander and citrus, but with a somehow warmer spice addition as well, and maybe some muddled dark fruit. Taste: citrus, coriander, light vanilla and banana, a bit of cracked pepper and wheat toast, then under it all a nice note of plum, just enough to warm the flavors a bit. Finish: medium length, slightly spicy and wheaty; palate was slightly more full than usual for the style. Notes: Really liked this. Started as a typical wit, although well-done enough. The subtle addition from the plums (and maybe a few more winter spices) didnít change this up too much or make it gross, but they DID make it feel slightly a-typical and like it truly was the just-before-spring wit it professed to be. Bottle from Village Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville.

RONCOD (222) - Uledi, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Poured a cloudy, golden color with a thin white head. I tasted a lot of vanilla in this beer. OK, but not the best Sam Adams Iíve had.

Sam Adams is usually pretty good and this is no exception. Clean Belgian White.

On tap at the beer Mecca know as Red Robins. Easy to drink but a bit gassy. Orange, banana, etc. really clean. Thankfully light on the banana. 8 bucks. This cost me eight dollars.

Draft. Surprisingly weak entry from SA. Very muted nose. Below average carbonation. Thin mouth feel. The first SA product Iíve tasted that lacked the intrinsic caramel toasted hop core that signifies SA beers and ales. Send this one back!
