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.

A relatively clear dark golden pour, not too much sediment floating around; smells of alcohol and spice. Body is medium-full, taste of mild witbier spice banana and clove phenols, a huge sugary caramel presence shows up with a some sweet alcohol rounded at the very end by a slight twang of herbal hops. Not bad, but it tastes and feels just as much like a weizenbock as it does a witbier, and in general there aren’t enough sour citrus, yeast or spice notes to keep this balanced. An interesting effort and worth trying but River horse still gets my vote for best ’imperial’ witbier.

Nice dark gold color. Aroma has floral with a hint of citrus. Taste sweete at first, then leaves a bitter after taste.

Malty aroma. Not a lot of head on this guy. Dark golden in color. First taste that I noticed was alcohol. Had some light malt, citrus and spicy flavors. Medium to heavy bodied. I was initially intrigued by this beer purely because I have never had or heard of an imperial white. It has a lot more flavor to offer than other white beers.

Very nice aroma and minimal head. Poured a nice amber color, almost perfect! Lightly bitter, but it’s nicely balanced with the orange peel taste. Another good one from Sam Adams that even my wife likes!

An unique take on a white ale. A good deal stronger than Southampton’s Double White, Almost amber in color.

Not much aroma, but the beer has a deep orange look and a very rich flavor. the high abv is noticeable as the beer is heavier than you might initially guess. full of flavor though which is how great wheat beers should be. fantastic beer, but the 4 packs on sale are drastically overpriced
