3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, at House of Blues, Chicago. So, HoB won't be known as a "beer bar" anytime soon. Ten taps, the usual suspects, regular Sam and this seasonal. So…
A good choice in such a place. The nose is subdued, just a trace of weiss odor. Head is thin, becomes nice and lacy. Color is hazy yellow like a good wheat beer. Lemon taste is definitely there, some spiciness. Worth tasting in season, though not a "craft brew" type anymore. If you got a skunked bottle, try to find it in draft.

It's ok for a summer ale, light fresh taste with some summer feeling to it. No real scent, color is ok, sort of like a cloudy orange. Tastes ok with a light summer taste and no aftertaste

Pours golden honey with a creamy ivory head. Appearance is quite pleasing. Aromas of lemon, citrus, wheat and malt. Taste is tinny metallic citrus with hints of white pepper and spices. It's ok. Probably goes down well on a hot summer day.

Beautiful looking, but bland tasting beer. There is not much to taste here. This needs some kind of citrus taste to it and maybe unfiltered. It has potential, but the recipe needs to be tweaked, but I feel that way with a lot of the beers Sam Adams makes.

From a bottle, I drank two and that was plenty. Not quite, not even close. Not much malt, not much hop, it was like a soda.

Pours clear golden with a big puffy beige head, excellent retention. Aromas of spice, bread, lemon, grass. Light body, creamy, smooth, lively. Lightly sweet, mild tartness, light bitter and peppery finish. Very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5.3% ABV. Wheat Ale.
No head out of the tap.
Color is a dark hazy honey, 6-8ºSRM.
Nose is a full-bodied malt with florid wheaty flavors. Had a beautiful fresh nose that was inviting.
Palate is full of witbier goodness, brief citrus brightness, giving way to the bold malt and then another brief hint of citrus peel in the finish and then it’s the next mouthful.
Just like having a Blue Moon, Hoegaarden or a Kronenbourg Blanc. Nice.
