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.

Gachupines (1144) - USA - AUG 9, 2013
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. Wife: 3.5

ThreeCats (707) - ISRAEL - AUG 9, 2013
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.

Rasmus40 (14809) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle @ Malmö Brygghus Hamnmästaren. Clear amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, spicy and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish with warming alcohol. This has nothing to do with a Wit. 310713

onceblind (6064) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2013
At Epic Beer Fest 2013. Clear brilliant gold under a foamy white head. Aroma is wheaty and boozy with a pale malt backbone and some doughy ester. Flavor is quite doughy and wheaty, totally lacking coriander, with a slight orange bitterness. Not what I had hoped for, un-nuanced, and overly doughy/boozy.
