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!

Very general all around beer. Not much flavor or smell. An off mouth feel making me not want to finish it. Not the best.

[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 (291) - 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 (359) - 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 (272) - 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.

OnTheTrail (87) - Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2015
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.

MunBro (804) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015
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.
