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.

Best Sam Adams seasonal available! Glad it came out before New Years this year!

Bierdimpfe (90) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2016
Cloudy hazy golden color. Foamy white 2 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Good legs and some powerful activity. Aromas and taste of citrus, fruits, clove, floral and herbal spices, slightly grainy. Powerful flavors of orange, too much in fact. Rich sweet taste with a slightly vinous feel. Creamy medium body with prickly carbonation. Well intensified finish ending with a pleasant smoky coriander and clove like spicy bitter mouth coat. Overall : Acceptable freshness and interesting craft. Very flavorful, but unbalanced, having overwhelming citrus. Could easily be called an orange beer, making this a bit hard to drink while eating for a white beer.

Wheat, straw, citrus zest, and some horse blanket in the aroma. Taste is very wheat and orange dominant with coriander to round it out. The yeast finishes with some more citrus zest.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazed orange with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Mild lacing. Aroma of citrus and orange peel. Flavor is dominated by coriander and orange beer. Mild spiciness and yeast notes. Light bodied with above average carbonation. Finishes with light spiciness.

Chalumeaux (681) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured from tap at Spuds cloudy orange with a white head. Aromas of fruit lemon and mild coriander. Taste is somewhat sweet and crisp with notes of fruit. Meh!

Pours a cloudy orange. Aroma is spicy Belgian wit. Flavour is more coriander and pepper with some orange. Finish is thick and slightly dry.

McGarnigle (600) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle. Mellow beer, tastes like a wit but with different spices. No bite to it, hops or otherwise. Feels like it has a coating on it which dampens the flavor. Not strong enough to be warming. Admittedly, I don’t much like winter spiced beers in general.

katrinaez (944) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Missing a lot for a wit. Aroma is very faint but has some yeast and light fruit. Color a heavy hazed yellow orange. Taste has a bit of a sweetness and there is fruity note to it. Like the milk tastes after your fruity pebbles are gone. Small amount of Belgium style shows. Tap

Fruity, sweet aroma. Cloudy amber pour. Mild carbonation, wheat presence, and some fruit. Thick, full body.

Pretty average beer. Pours a cloudy orange with a head that caps the brew. The aroma has fruits with lemon, not much spice. The flavor is tart with a bit of lemon.
