UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 Bottle: Fairly thin on the aroma: not really anything too much to speak of. Taste has a little bit of malts to it, but no real hoppiness to it. It is a bit refreshing. Good, but a little thin on flavor. I expect something from 'Sam' to have a little more body.

A decent Wit beer - slightly overdone on the spices and citrus - but it is quite refreshing mid-July while laying out on the deck of a boat. As for appearance - nothing to speak of - pretty standard ’beer’ color with slight cloudiness - head is nice at first but dies shortly after. Flavor - overdone on spice. Palate - cooling - a little aftertaste. Decent - but I think I would have preferred the old SA summer seasonal - SA Wheat. Cheers!

A nice Belgian Wit style from SA. Light gold and hazy; a fruity, citrus, herbal aroma; very light and clean on the palate with a refreshing lemon presence; the grains of paradise lend a mild herbal character. A premium hot weather thirst quencher.

A decent offering from the Boston Beer Co., but a touch too much lemon. A lighter citrus taste would enhance this beer.

This is a vary light, very mildly fruity wheat beer. The mild hint of lemon mixed in with the wheat is very nice. A very refreshing beer. I can have several of these.

I find this quite hoppy for a wheat. Its very good on tap, less so in the bottle but that doesn’t seem to keep me from buying it. Good color, medium head. Good and refreshing like a summer brew should be, somewhat bitter finish (though seems to vary by batch).

Not a bad brew, refreshing, hoppy (but not overbearing) and a clean finish.
