Interesting orange/yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is sage, citrus, kind of savory. Flavor is dominated by sage and savory notes. Coriander and citrus. They made what they said they made, but the result is not that great. And why would you hide a nice rye base behind all of that fluffery.

Got a 12 ounce bottle from the Sam Adams summer mix pack. Pours a hazy gold, with white head. Aroma of sage, coriander and spices. Taste is complex: oranges, coriander, and maybe a hint of Rye. Well blended and drinkable. Not my favorite, but not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy dark gold brew with a citrus and coriander aroma. Tastes like a heffeweizen with lots of orange zest in it. That was about all I could taste at first was orange and coriander. Had to really let it set to even pick out the sage. If there is rye in it the coriander overpowers it so bit of a waste using rye. It is a good brew overall and worth drinking.

Bottle from a summer mix box at the in laws for 4th of July. Pours a pale to light yellow with big head. Aroma is Belgian spice and a sage bomb. Sage again goes in every which way in the taste. Nice for a summer coastal California day. Not great but fine to drink from the bottle when it is free.

Another solid but unremarkable seasonal from Sammy. Clear light golden pour, medium carbonation. Nose of grain, citrus, and modest rye. Wouldn’t have pegged this as a wit, since the combo of elements gave it a moderately hoppy impression. Taste is unassuming, with kind of perfunctory rye, thankfully modest sweetness, and a reasonably dry finish. Okay.

Have to be in the mood for it. Decent aroma, bit of a bitter taste. Not one of my favorites

Bottle at Halls B-Day party. Pours a nice golden color with thick bubbly white head. Aroma hint of citrus but also hint of an organic earthy smell. Taste is intriguing, starting off as a nice light wittier, however finishing with the bite of rye and hint of sage. Carbonation really compliments the taste here, decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much to the appearance, but the smell intrigues. Certainly a spicy beer, smells like an old spice rack in the best of ways. The taste continues on in the same manner with plenty of fizz. I found this in the Sam Adams 2013 summer variety pack, but haven’t seen anywhere else.
