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.

Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin, creamy, soapy white head. The aroma is loaded with sage, some coriander and cereal grain, mostly just the sage, though. Flavor is again pretty strong with the sage, but some more earthy spices come through, some coriander, floury grain, light citrus, spicy and floral hops and mineral notes. LIght, off dry body, with a crisp to slightly chalky feel and moderate, somewhat sharp carbonation. I actually enjoyed this beer more than I thought I would. The spice additions really add an interesting depth, and although they seem to overpower the rest of the beer, they are pleasant, sort of comfort food like. I think this beer would make an excellent pairing for roast poultry (especially turkey), or pork. It would probably be a good marinade base for those as well.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a tall, foamy white head. Strong coriander and spice in the aroma with citrus and grains. Taste is spice, coriander, sweet malt, toasted grains, yeast and light citrus. Body is light-medium and extremely carbonated. Ends with more coriander and spices, yeast notes, flowers, citrus zest and grains.

Intense herby aroma bringing thyme and rosemary to the nose. Moderate gold with no foam. Flavor follows nose. Thyme and herbs dominate on the palate. Undertones of honey, caramelized sugar and caramel. Overall, this is not bad. Very herby and nice balance. I’d give this a B rating.

Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is coriander and rye. Taste is very pleasant. Crisp, flavorful and refreshing. The coriander and rye give it a spicy bite and the wheat keeps it in check. You get a hint of sage in the aftertaste.

I was surprised by what was available in their Spring Variety Pack. Little White Rye was included in the Summer Variety Pack, though it is hardly a summer beer and has an offensive flavor. Sam Adams often offers a pleasant surprise but every now and then they brew something that should never have been. If you want a Rye, try Founder’s Red’s Rye.

This is quite am interesting selection. Pours a hazy yellow with a light white top. Aroma is very complex with notes of wheat, grass, earth, but a with a sweet edge. Fresh leaves come through as well. Taste is some cloves with a little banana that doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. More of a wheat beer that one should definitely smell before tasting.
