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

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, golden body with a dense, two-finger off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma is rather soapy, in a ginger-like way. Wheat, coriander and citrus peel, orange. Ok, reading the commercial description, I see there’s white sage in it too, that most definitely makes sense. Medium body, lightly sweetish, with a nice carbonation level. Spices. citrus and wheat in the flavor, some bitterness kicking in towards the end. A quite decent beer, but I can’t say I really appreciate the experimentation, it is too spiced I think. 130819

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head that dissipates quickly with little lacing. Aroma is wheat, coriander, orange peel. Flavor is light sweet, minimally bitter. I honestly would not place either sage or rye without the label, but there is a bit of a spiciness in the far finish. Light body, low carbonation. Better than I thought it was going to be.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Kissimmee, Florida. This is a pale straw coloured beer with orange and sage flavours, earthy and spicy notes with a smooth, creamy vanilla finish. Very good but I doubt I could drink more than one of these in a session.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured cloudy medium golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up coriander and salt over soft bready notes. The flavor found bready notes and a touch of honey topped by coriander, salt, and tangy wheat.. finished salty with a kiss of earthy rye and more lime. Lighter-bodied with low-ish carbonation.. a rouch too salty for me, but otherwise very tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy dirty yellow pour with a smaller white head. Sage dominates the aroma and taste, and that’s fine with me. Fun beer!
