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.

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.

12oz bottle: Poured a thick hazy brown color with no head. Scents of molasses, licorice and allspice some alcohol is present. Smooth fruity taste to it pretty close to a fruit beer.

Thick grainy aroma with a light sweet smell. Cloudy golden amber color with a small white head. Mild sweet taste that fades to a moderate alcohol burn in the finish.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2009
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.

Cloudy in look, almost amber in color, pretty decent sized biege colored head. The smell is orange peel, cooriandor, fruits, and wheat. The taste is sweet, fruits, orange peel, honey, and wheat. Some alcohol.

emacgee (4024) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Pours a cloudy soft amber with a one to two finger creamy offwhite head. The nose is yeasty, fruity, banana, orange peel, rich and caramely notes. The flavor is yeasty, wheaty, a tinge of alcohol, mild sweetness, rich upfront, orange shows nicely, very mild spice, estery. Tasty. Warming palate with a soft wheaty feel.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2009
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.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2009
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.
