COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sam Adams Imperial White pushes the boundaries of a witbier. While the brew delivers orange and coriander notes typical of a witbier, it has a bigger mouthfeel and body. It is truly a unique brew.

Poured golden haze, one finger head, taste of carmel hits right away with several other flavors overwhelming the palate. Too busty for my taste.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours light amber with a rich off-white head and a fruity and alcohol aroma There is a strangely sweet malty flavor that finishes very bitter and peppery. Not a good combination of tastes.

September 2012. Bottle. The high alcohol is bringing this beer out of balance and makes it less enjoyable. The malt and yeast is showing through, but I did not enjoy this one.

"Sam Adams Imperial White pushes the boundaries of a witbier", is what they say. And boy do they. Too bad the boundary is a cliff into a cesspool. God-awful. Absolutely no balance whatsoever. "Lets bombbard our customers with all sorts of flavors and hope that it sells." Horrible.

Sweet bready candy aroma with coriander and orange peel. Cloudy golden color with long lasting white head. Sweet candy malty flavor with coriander And orange. Full bodies with med high CO2 and sweet coriander finish. Enjoyable beer, but 12 oz is a bit much. A bit too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Armadill0 (249) - FINLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle. Orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma is strong with orange, citrus, yeast and spices. Taste is sour with orange, yeast, anis. Bit too strong alcoholic aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel up until the end. Tries a bit too much to be a lot of different thigs. Lots of flavors though.

jehoesefat (265) - Poway, California, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Aroma is yeasty and doughy. Pours murky orange with a thick, frothy white head. Taste starts off like a wheat beer, but the spice flavors come out in the finish.
