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!

On tap, pours a hazy gold with a thin wispy white head. Pepper, coriander, orange peel, lemon zest, and wheat notes. Light body with a high level of carbonation. Light refreshing citrus mouthfeel with cleansing carbonation that tingles on the tongue at the finish.

(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

Bottle courtesy of Ken during Chinese New Year 2015. Mouthfeel is medium, lightly chewy with lots of spice and carbonation; notes of misc. grains, citrus, orange peel and tons of spice. The spice character actually imparts a strange fruity flavor.

This is pretty close to being poisoned. Unfiltered beers always look suspicious since you cannot see what lurks inside - its like Jack Ripper in a London Fog. But I can handle that if it tastes nice. Seems that there has been some kind of accident involving a major spillage in an Indian spice shop. All of the floor sweepings have ended up here. Not excessive on the orange really, but the coriander is so intrusive that it almost reminds me of a clove-rich visit to the dentists. The recent glut of hops seem to have found a home here too. A bit overdone IMHO. I can imagine that it will appeal to some people - but not to me. I consider it a ínovelty itemí - and after the first mouthful - the novelty swiftly wore off.

Iíve got to remember to rate some of these beers sooner. This wasnít bad but not memorable either. Once is enough.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Smells of lemon, grass. Tastes of lemon pledge, light spice. Fine, but seems like it should be a summer brew.
