COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Innocent yet beguiling, this hazy golden brew appears to be a classic wittier with its bright notes of orange citrus & coriander, but there’s a bit more mischief up its sleeve. Behind its sweet exterior lies an intriguing blend of white sage and rye for an earthly, spicy, and thoroughly refreshing brew.

Better than I thought it might be. Close enough in the witbier tradition to gain legitimacy. Spice and prevalent yeast. Short palate.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Pours a sparkling light gold with a lasting head. Aroma is herbal with a hint of spice. Flavor is sweet up front and balanced in the finish. A little too sweet for my taste. Becomes somewhat cloying after a few sips.

Malaclemys (244) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours very light straw with fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Nose of malt, spice, heavy sage, medicinal almost. Taste is a little heavy on the sage for me, cough syrup, a little spice of rye. light body

Boutip (4509) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of coriander and sage is quite dominant with light sweet wheat malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by sage with quite a bit of coriander, light orange peel and light wheat malt with some light residual sugar notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Quite enjoyed the spice mix but a fuller malt profile would have also been beneficial.

jcos (1449) - Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Location/Date:Bottle on August 25th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma of lots of sage, faint coriander.
Taste: Wheat, orange, lots of sage, faint rye.
Palate:Medium light body, really smooth.

Summary: The sage in this beer is a bit overpowering. The mouth feel is nice, and I get the intent to be different.

nice small but full and lasting head on it, decent smell...similar to blue moon but somehow a bit fuller tasting...slightly heavier taste than you would expect...

GMCC2181 (1495) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle from sam adams summer 1/2 case... Orange in color. Big ass head. Looks tempting. Good lacing left on the glass. Strong nose of oranges, flowers, coriander, and sage. Taste is strong on the coriander and sage, light orange, flowers, spices, earthy notes. Sweetness in the after taste. Pretty unique witbier. Good amount of carbonation. Good stuff on a hot day

Imaena (1703) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. Ok this beer has more than a hint of sage. I think thats the soapy taste people are getting from this. BUT if you pair it right with say a roast chicken and corn on the cob it could be a good brew.

Bottle: Golden color with a very light haze. Smell is kinda off. A little like soap. Not a good beer.
