{from notes of 2011 tasting) 12 oz bottle served in pint glass; slight sediment in bottom of bottle added midway thru tasting. A - hazy golden with a ivory-colored head. Head has average retention and leaves little lace. Looks highly carbonated. S - toasted grains dominate, with some citrus but little sign of the added "spices" T - The flavor is less spicy than expected too, but the spices do show up more prominently in flavor than in the aroma. Nice clean, lightly spicy aftertaste. M - light body. Crisp. Semi-dry, near dry, finish. This is a unique White Ale. Witbiers are not my favorite style but I found this ale to be both interesting and appealing.

Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a medium white head. Sweet aroma with strong orange and light yeast notes. Moderate citrus flavors with light yeast and wheat notes. Smooth and drinkable but almost too sweet.

Mostly clear golden yellow pour, head looked nice but didn’t linger. Bready aroma. Light bready flavor, but doesn’t linger. Easy to drink, but nothing special.

Don’t let the White Ale part fool you, this wit-bier pours an amber color with a slight scent of wheat. It has a slight bitter taste like a pale ale but very small. The spices are very evident but blended nicely. Another great beer from Sam Adams.

Appearance: hazy almost clear golden color, moderate size head fades quickly Aroma: wheat, lemon, Taste: orange on the tongue, bit of wheat finish Palate: some burn on the tongue, a hint of froth, orange and wheat aftertaste Overall: one of my more preferred orange flavored beers but still I’m not an orange flavor fan, bottle named white lantern ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not much aroma or taste from this watered down hazy yellowish beer. Easy drinker, with barely any belgian yeast or spice that i would be looking for with the style. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle). Nice floral hop aroma. Short flavor of wheat, citrus and spices with a strange element of ale taste. This beer has a strange but kind of fun flavoring!

Happy to grab another Sam Adams brew! Aromas included light herbs, lemon zest, hops and bread. I like the spicy body of this beer, the yeast and straw notes make for a mouthful of light and complex flavors.
