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.

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.

This should probably be listed as a witbier - hazy gold - fairly thick lace - quite a bit of sage in the nose - some sweet orange notes underneath - the rye is mild, but adds an interesting dimension that works surprisingly well with the sage - medium body - soft carbonation in the mouth - lightly spicy up front (pepper, herbs), followed by a light citric tartness - rye arrives late, along with mild sage - like in the nose, they play off of each other much better than I was expecting - spicy finish - pretty good.

Hazy golden with a massive bright-white head that leaves fabulous lacing. Rather spicy rye aroma with orange peel, light pine, hibiscus flower and vanilla cookies. Light-to-moderately bitter flavor up front turns moderately sweet and flowery. Finish has some chamomile tea notes atop lemon peel, lavender and light white pepper. Lightly carbonated, mouthfeel is a bit watery. Interesting.

Pours a hazy golden with a full white head that dissipates to a thin coating in short order. Aroma is coriander and bread. Taste is smooth and creamy with noticable rye bread dough, spices and a bit of hop bitterness at the end. Couldn’t find an IBU rating anywhere, but I suspect it’s around 40. Pretty decent summer refresher offered in Sam’s summer 12-pack.
