Dark dull gold pour. No head really just a cloudy cap. I have a congested nose so aroma is undetectable. Flavor is booze and clean malt liquor. Not all that special. It does have a good silky feel.

Medium body, rather flat mouthfeel, despite yoghurty sourness at the back end.
Sweet more than sour, alcoholic taste, no hops.

Pours clear orange with a large off-white head. Smells of coriander and subtle orange citrus. Taste is boozy, Belgian, and a little spiced. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Imperial White finishes with a boozy, slightly herbal note.

A: Smells like orange, apple. Some grape
A: Pours a hazy orange brown color. good head.
T: Taste’s intense.... very very sweet. The first couple sips kick you in the face but after you get into it it isn’t bad. Orange. yeasty, wheaty. Lemon. heavy.... very heavy. and boozy.
P: Super intense. good flavor notes but overpowered by the heavy body and alcohol.
Overall this is an ok beer. Lots of good flavors but too intense overall.

Dark orange pour some white head. Aroma of apples & cinnamon. Tastes like a malt bomb, doppelbock or barleywine. Way too sweet. caramel flavors. Alcohol is at least hidden behind a wall of sugar.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color with white head. Aroma is very slight toffee with notes of hay. Flavor is a little sweet with banana and an almost wine like mouthfeel. A little heavy in the finish, and mildly cloying but not bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dim-copper body with a little foamy head. Aroma of heavy oxidation (Not surprising as the beer was almost a year expired) some orange and coriander. Taste of heavy oxidation, over-ripe orange, marmalade, honey. Every time I drink this beer I’m amazed by how far off the mark it is. Maybe the folks at Sam Adams don’t get the idea that a witbeer is something light, fruity, and drinkable? Cause they’ve managed to create the exact opposite.. And putting "Imperial" in front of it doesn’t excuse the basic bad idea.

(Bottle) Burnt orange body with a huge off white head. Aroma of grain and spice. Medium to heavy sweet, and spicy flavor; banana, alcohol, burnt sugar, roasted notes. Full bodied. Not very delicate or subtle, but tasty.
