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!

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Pours a gummy apricot with a filmy head. Aroma is there and nothing spectacular: some hay/cereal malt, light floral/citrus hops, doughy yeast, and apricot. Taste bends to sour. Palate is watery and bland. Not a fan. Not a fan of Sam Adams. Won’t buy again. Wouldn’t drink again.

[backlog] 18-03-16 / bottle at Houston Airport. Crisp, spicy. Nice yeast aroma. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3.25/5

Ha ha, there’s a reason words like "weird" and "candy" keep coming up. There’s something particular to the style about it. Not horrible, though.

Kind of gross. Tasted like candy. Like there was some artificial flavors in there.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2016
On tap at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Weird smell, like fructose, a fruity and artificial smell. Similar taste with citrus in the finish. Very odd, like they added fructose, a type of candy I had as a kid. Or maybe it just is some kind of citrus. Not my kind of beer, I ended up not finishing my 2 DL sample.

tillmac62 (685) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2016
BBD 6/16. Pours a hazy gold. Outstanding head volume, quite outstanding retention and world class lacing. Very good nose of complex light fruit (that contains pear), light coriander and a biscuit base. Heavy light body that is smooth. Normal carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish. Solid carbonation / body balance. The flavor profile is good. The flavors of the nose make an appearance, but nothing really pops. In short, this is solid but a bit bland. It leads with a blended light fruit flavor that is rather crisp over a solid grainy biscuit. The middle provides a light snap of herbal bitterness with strong floral aspects. Coriander makes an insignificant appearance near the finish. The finish is clean.
