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 (256) - 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. Wonít buy again. Wouldnít drink again.

Smells like glŁhwein with especially strong orange and clove notes. Taste is spice and coriander. Goes down smooth.

tia (1037) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle. Hazy honey with thin had and minimal lacing. Smells floral and a little bubble gummy with a hint of spice. Sweet flavor with a dry yet wheat y finish.

Shot (197) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2015
On tap. Cloudy gold with a thin white head. Very little aroma. Slight stone fruit and crackery notes. Flavors of muted apricot, stone fruits, grass, and slight citrus with some herbal notes. Not very impressive.

JaKeAFC (638) - ITALY - FEB 28, 2015
35 cl bottle at Red Lobster, Manhattan, NY. Cloudy light orange color, average white head. Spicy nose. Aroma of witbier, orange peel and spices. Thin malt profile, dusty texture, dry finish. Taste sweetish, medium bodied, quite ok, a summer one however.

(draft @ TGI Fridayís - Greece, NY) Cloudy gold pour with a thick white head. Mild spice and wheat aroma. Mild spice flavor, definitely some hints of coriander and maybe some orange. A bit watery and mild.

Spicy, not sure what all awaits inside this one, but it seems exciting... Pours with a huge frothy head. Very cloudy, orange color, I like it already....Taste is spicy, and itís hard to describe, but it works....It has a clean mouthfeel, itís not heavy. With every sip that aroma thing just keeps coming back. Itís good, itís refreshing. But there, it was sort of a watery thin mess. I like it still, but lowered the rating on palate.... Overall, this is an excellent beer. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. The spiciness just keeps coming back and.... itís good!

Bottle. Pours orange with a nice smooth head. Aroma of multiple spices but one that stands out is ginger. Tastes well balanced with a aftertaste of fruity pebbles. Think of drinking the remaining milk from your fruit pebble cereal.

Cloudy orange pour with healthy white head and sweetly spiced aromas. Iíve heard it said by some that this reminded them of fruity pebbles and they werenít kidding, it does! And I say this is not a bad thing. After not having Blue moon in some time and having Hoegaarden very recently, I can say that I find this more enjoyable than both! This has a very nice mouth feel and Iím enjoying the spices. Well done again Samuel Adams.

Draft. Best available option. Not bad at all. Cloudy unfiltered orange gold. Fruity, yeast, grains, orange zest, lemon, belgian ale spices. Needs work on the finish but, overall solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
