Very hazy orange pour in an awesome glass. Check out that glass.
Weak scent overpowered be the scent of chicken wings. What an odd beer. Very not beer like. Lots os odd spices. Reminds me of a hard cider. Or maybe a mulled wine. Very unique. Very drinkable. Love the aftertaste.
Wasn’t expecting much but really like this.

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+

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.

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.

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.

aroma- coriande, maybe clove, more than citrus. taste - a soft fruity that makes me thing banana, less spice. altogether not unpleasant, but nothing special, much like Blue Moon.

Nice one from Sam Adams. Hazy yellow/orange pour. Has a zesty aroma of oranges and lemon. Some foam and minor spotty lacing. A nice American brewing of a Belgian Witbier. Zest, wheat, straw, orange, lemon, and an earthy funkiness.

From Notes: Not a big fan... this is really fruity. Not even in a good way. I can drink it, but I don’t want to...

UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Cloudy yellow body huge bubbly head.. Unfortunately heavy bodied. Subtle peach on the nose, wheat malt, coriander and orange zest. Not sessionable. Would’ve been great in a 250ml portion. Draft at McThirstys Pint.
