COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Innocent yet beguiling, this hazy golden brew appears to be a classic wittier with its bright notes of orange citrus & coriander, but thereís 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.

This beer pours a hazy dark golden color with a medium white head that dissipates gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of citrus, spice and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and toasted malt. The finish is fruity with a citrus and spiced hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle courtesy Naka. Pours effervescent yellow with fizzy, 1/2 finger white head. Nose smells like cinnamon and thyme, a touch of lemon. Biscuit and grass, woody notes and a citrus finish. Really awkward, honestly, like finding out Princess Leia is your sister.

12oz bottle, pours a hazy gold, with white head. Faint aroma of oranges and spices. Taste has some complexity: oranges, coriander, hint of rye, interesting flavor. Well balanced, clean, crisp, and drinkable. A nice Wit brew.

The sage taste makes this a very enjoyable beer. Leaves a fizzy feel on the tongue that helps bring it to life.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Very unremarkable beer. Nothing special that would bring me back again. A little disappointing a i was hoping for something better. --you've been Dubbed.

I donít drink witbiers. I have never gotten along with them. They arenít my style of beer. The only reason I even tasted this beer was because it came in the sampler case I purchased. I think it would be a disservice to the beer and the brewer if I made any comments about it. Itís their fault I donít care for the style.

12oz into a glass. Pours a hazy orange. Head is light and fluffy and maintains. Taste is funky orange with some slight rye, but not to overbearing or extreme, like a very light rye. a splash of rye if you would. Seems to be too much going on within this one, like the brew is not quite sure where it wants to go. That brings a muddle taste to the offering and confuses the pallate. Orange spice is prevalant, as is corriander and nutmeg. But, this selection does go finely with the summer mix pack and the heat wave felt in the northeast recently. get down on it.

12 oz bottle, another witbier from Sam Adams, this has to be some kind of record! -Pours hazy golden with a one finger head that starts to fizz away but still leaves a nice ice cream looking head, halfway through there is just a thin ring. Aroma is strong in citrus, coriander, ginger. The taste is citrusy, orange, the rye is really there, bready spiciness, sage too. Interesting beer, good.

Bottle from a sampler 12 pack.
Big coriander and spice aroma with lemon, citrus zest.
Tastes are citrus, sweet toasted grain, spice, floral.
Lively palate.
Itís not horrible. Drinkable enough.
