Donít 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.

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.

BlackHaddock (4692) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
July 2009: Brown 12oz bottle, part of a six pack, poured into a Corsendonk badged, stemmed tulip glass. Cloudy haze (just like it says on the bottle neck label), dirty yellow/golden colour, good firm white head. Plenty of bubbles rising through the body. Spicey mix aroma, corriander, lemon and pink grapefruits. Keen and sharp in the mouth, well carbonated and fairly dry to taste. The taste follows the smells to the letter, a sweet and sour feel from the grapefruit and lemon mixture, the spices adding a little extra to the run of the mill white beers out there. The taste and aroma sweeten as the beer warms. The 5.2ABV is hidden well, but it does lack a body strength which would put it up there with the top white beers. Another Samual Adams beer Iíve enjoyed.

Very slightly hazy amber beer. Smooth dry palate. Rich dry spicy malt with a strong finish of bubblegum and aniseedy alcohol. Warming afterglow. A bit different for a Witbier. Brandyish.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Originally reviewed: 12/20/10. Part of the Winter mix pack. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold. A thin white head rest atop. Fair retention; left some good lace behind. The nose is pretty basic. Some light spices, wet hay, citrus zest. Smooth feel, with a crisp bite on the finish. Some faint citrus like lemon and orange in the flavor. More bready than anticipated. This isnít one of the more spicy Wits out there, but it hits the spot. Also, Iím not sure this is the season for this style, but no matter. A good beer, just not necessarily a good Witbier.

seymour (1623) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2012
Tasted 12 oz bottle into nucleated pint glass. Slightly hazy golden color with fluffy, aromatic off-white foam. Soft, round spiced wheat ale flavors and aromas. Some spices were added, nicely blending with the Belgian-style yeast to suggest citrus, clove, banana, pepper. A bit watery and muted compared to classic examples, but pretty good. Crisp, dry finish.

Bottle; Pour is cloudy light golden with a modest white head; spotty lacing. Bready, fruity, and spicy on the nose; A creaminess from the head; the beer devolves a bit
