3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bonus bottle courtesy of weeheavysd. Definitely a Wit. Pours a hazy copper color with a faint beige head. Smells of orange rind, cream, and pepper. Has a consistency that makes me think there’s gelatin in the recipe. Tastes of heavy citrus and chewy caramel. Not bad for the style.

12 oz bottle. Pour is reddish amber. Flavors is very cherry focused, not a typical soapy flavorless wit. Alcohol hidden very nicely. Good to see Sam Adams brew stuff like this, one of my top wits.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprisingly dark orange color with a thick white head. Very perfumey aroma. Some honey, some citrus and lots of banana. The flavor is sweet and fruity with a touch of spice at the end and a good bit of honey. This is an odd one but I sort of like it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light copper bronze colored body with a light khaki colored head. The aroma has some strong bananas and a little bit of orange peels. Then I started to notice the clove and alcohol. The taste has some strong banana peels and nasty clove. There is barely a hint of the orange peels. This is good if you like lots of clove. A sickly sweet mess.
