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.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle from The Liquor Collection, Honolulu, HI
Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. Some aroma of wheat, light spices, and a touch of sage, and fresh nuts. Full bodied, the mouthfeel is round but also a bit oily; mild flavor of wheat, with light spiciness; there are some esters, but can’t be called fruits; the alcohol perception is quite high; correct bitterness.
Less sweet than a wheat wine, but not exciting either. Boozy.

Bottled 355ml (Hilpeä Hauki)
Hazy orange-amber color, small steady off-white head. Aroma is banana and alcohol sweetness. Full-bodied. Sweet banana, alcohol, light spiceyness but can’t trace coriander. Too heavy. Unbalanced.

The dull opaque amber livens up when it is held up to light. Sugary, phenolic, flowery and boozy aroma. Very thick, sweet beer with light flowery-fruity notes. Ultra thick, cloying. Slight boozy finish. A bit of a mess.
