3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unclear orang beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is very sweet - with non of the sourness that German hefeweizen usually have. The flavor is sweet, wheaty and malty - and no bitterness. All in all an OK German hefeweizen - but a boring example on my tastebuds.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Found this in a drugstore on Manhattan only later to experience that it was at least 18 months past it’s best of date. Presumably this does not affect the flavours which I found extremely fresh and fruity as in the best German Weissbiers. Orangey almost amber in colour with a decent if not exactly overwhelming head. Excellent.

Bottled. Muddy pale orange. Big banana aroma. Sweet and yeasty with rounded mouthfeel. Stylish and authentic.

Cloudy golden with small off-white head. Aroma is clove, banana, wheat, some orange with light grassy. Taste is much the same, though the wheat is more pronounced. Carbonation a bit above average, though par for the style. Altogether, SA does a pretty decent job with this one.

Syrupy floor polish nose and flavor, with a soft, smooth witbier flavor that make it’s not completely awful... fluffy marshmallow flavors, oily chemical scents and a resin-like coating of hop oil, as best I can desribe it... that typical SA flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale straw, with good head and lace. Aroma of malt and yeast. Tastes weissy, with a yeast, citrus, fairly smooth finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice cloudy color, but not much head/carbonation. It has all the components of a good wheat beer, but they don’t seem to flow together well. The initial malt flavor is decent, as well as the yeast after-taste, but in between then, there are a lot of off flavors. Perhaps it was a bad batch, but judging by the other ratings, i’m guessing not.

AIBA 2003: Not too bad, but like a lot of things from sam Adams, pretty average, or perhaps slightly above average, lightly estery banana and clove flavours, but on the light side for sure.

Pured with a white bubbly head, but it went away too quickly. The beer is somewhat hazy, but not too different than a dark golden Ameribeer. There's a prevalent yeasty aroma, but there's only a hint of it in the citrusy, light flavor. This is one of the more disappointing Sammy products.
