"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.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle, summer of 2013. Great aroma with adequate flavors, but probably would not seek out again.

Bottle. Poured a amberish color. Smelled spicey and yeast. Taste of a big big wit lots of spice, too much spice.

This is a pretty nice brew by Sam Adams. I’m not the biggest fan of their regular brews, but they do the imperials well. An interesting take on a belgian white, with a very strong flavor and high alcohol content. Poured a turbid light orange with a lacy head. Very malty aroma. Has a sweet and spicy flavor. Slightly too much carbonation, and could have a thicker feel.

Pours hazy golden with a small white head.
Wheat and orange in the aroma.
Citrus and flowers in the flavor with no change.
A wit with a bit more bite.

Banana and bubblegum is what this beer smells like. Definitely unusual for a white. Actually a more interesting offer from Sam Adams.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2011 Small, quickly dissolving head over body the color and translucence of orange pekoe tea.
Aroma is apricot, ginger spice and a little soap.
Taste is a wonderful balance of sweet, bitter, and saltiness.
Palate is a satisfying, lively carbonated, medium bodied, with a welcomed, long, perfect, fruit finish.

6 oz serving from a 12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler. Nice amber with a kind of orange tint. Little white head. Nose is sweet malts and a bit fruity. It’s a pretty big beer, taste is a bit zesty and the finish is spicy, but its still well-balanced with fruit and citrus notes and bit of a kick from the alcohol. Not really familiar with the style so it was an interesting try- thumbs up.
