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!

In a bottle. The aroma was almost overwhelming lemon with a very sweet aftertaste. Ok but not great for a white ale.

maekchu (2771) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2015
Can from Village Wine & Spirits. Light wheat nose, some citrus, bit of spice, and a decided metallic note. Hazy amber color with a compact 1cm white head. Wheat, light spice (coriander and ginger), gentle citrus, and thin sweet finish. Thin-medium body. Mild, unassuming, and fairly refreshing.

Panzuriel (1467) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2015
12 oz bottle. Cold snap is a hazy yellow beer with a decent head of white bubbles. Nose is mild floral hops and some lightly roasted malt. Taste is yeast and some light citrus. body is medium. Screams, Sam does "blue moon" which is sad that that’s my standard for mass produced witbier, but if the shoe fits.

Bottle at a friends house. hazy golden pour as expected. Aromas were mild and the flavor was average. Nothing to get too excited about.

On tap at the hotel bar. Pours a hazed amber with a large white head. Yeast and musk on the nose, soft sweetness. Medium bodied, a touch of musk and wheat. Nice yeast character. Sweet wheat on the finish, light touches of banana.

[7134-20150307] Tap. Floral grains and lemon hints in the aroma. Murky, pale orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Bitter lemon grains flavour has a lingering aftertaste. Medium body. Good, simple. (7/3/8/3/14) 3.5+

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Poured a golden orange body with minimal head and lace with a decent witbier aroma of minor citric hops/spice and touches of yeast. Beer is smooth and easy to drink but too simplistic to be a great wit (more commercialized). The spice and coriander are minimal on the edges to add a little oomph to the citric flavors and it finishes light and with a crisp edge. Not a bad beer and there were touches of sweetness at times in the beer.

Crisp lemony carbonated flavor. Easy to drink. Not my favorite brew of Sam Adams. Might try again with some wings.

joejames (366) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2015
On tap, Guadalajara, York, PA, served in a shaker glass. Pour hazy golden-yellow, quick one finger creamy head, nice retention and foam lace covered the sides of the glass. Aroma of grass, bread. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting note of white peppercorn, coriander, wheat and lemon. Not bad.

bnokk (286) - Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2015
APPEARANCE - light, but oddly bright yellow color. Good white head that holds onto the sides of the glass all the way to the end. NOSE - smells strongly of pretty standard pils or lager. Not much more to speak of FLAVOR - light body and flavor as expected with a white ale.
