3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler pack in Springfield. The spiciness and dryness of the rye worked with the coriander and orange and the wit yeast. Serving: bottle

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle from Summer variety pack.
Ar: Big sage aroma up front, pretty strong coriander as well. Touch of citrus, a bit of spice overkill for me.
Ap: Pours a hazy straw with a head that dissipates quickly.
T: Sage is way overpowering and dominates everything along with the grassy/earthy coriander flavor. Thereís maybe some citrus in here somewhere but the spiciness just takes over.
P: Medium body, assertive carbonation.
O: Weak sauce.

Pours clear light gold with a lasting white head.
Light lemon aroma.
Light fruity flavor, no hops or other surprises.
Good but not great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Woof. You like coriander? This is the beer for you. The nose and flavor is just so dominated by spicy coriander that is just barely palatable. Sure its "ok" and I do like coriander but it is way overdone in this beer. The rye is not especially noticeable, it has the typical zesty wheaty witbier flavor, and touches of citrus but not a lot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a thin layer of white bubbles. Aroma is spicy sage and coriander. Flavor is sweet with lots of sage and coriander. Lingering spice in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, my third from this summer beer case ... none of which have floated my boat. But this one is at least quaffable. Light golden, active, but with absolutely no head. The coriander dominates the aroma in a big way. But this drinks like a light, made-for-the-masses Witbier knockoff, as easy for a Shocktop drinker to drink as that ... Wouldnít seek it out, but better than the other two I tried tonight. (#5060, 6/18/2013)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Foamy white head with slight lacing
Huge spicy nose (sage for sure)
Flavor- spicy and a bit earthy, maybe spruce?
Interesting take on the style

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy gold showing a small unfiltered affect with a small head leaving light lacing. Aromas of clove, wet earth, coriander, and sage. The sage and coriander really come out in this brew. Finishes with an herbal sweetness. One of the best Sam Adamís Iíve had in a while.

hazy gold pour with a quick white head.
aroma is spice ginger, sage and corriander. hint of pepper and light banana wheat
flavour is much softer on the spice than I expected.
Nice wheat and light corriander, sage and hint of rye. Not bad.

Summer thirst quencher. Orange peel is very prevalent. Would not go out of my way for this beer.
