COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian style white ales have a long history of unique ingredients, as brewers experimented with spices discovered during the spice trade. For our hazy brew we found a refreshing combination of crisp wheat, the tangy sweetness of tangerine & orange peel, and the subtle spiciness of coriander & grains of paradise. Cheers!

Hazy Light Orange, Huge bubbly Head, Some Lacing. Nice Orange Aroma. Wheat Sour, Orange, Citrus. Although I like the style and this brew was OK, for some reason this and other recent Sam Adams Beers seem to be bland and Subdued. Not sure it that is how they come out or if that is how they are made to appeal to the masses. Wish they had more character and sharper notes. Decent.

Bottle from Wegman’s Williamsport. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Slight orange note on the nose. The spices and orange peel do come across on the tongue but as others have noted its a tad overbearing. Has a bit of the orange peel on the finish as well. Not my favorite of the style.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before August 2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, tangerine, orange peel, pear, coriander, pepper, wheat, light clove, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with solid balance of malt, spice, and yeast notes; but it is very weak. Taste of lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, coriander, pepper, wheat, bread, light clove, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, coriander, pepper, wheat, bread, light clove, and earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice and pleasant flavors with good balance of malt, spice, and yeast esters; with a fair amount of robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very solid witbier. A little weak on flavors; but is well balanced and very easy to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Had this one after my vehicle got destroyed by hail. Not too bad but it wasnt my favorite Sam Adams brew. Not very flavorful or hoppy. Average at best.

Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured cloudy gold. Whitehead. Light lacing. Hose of coriander. Some citrus in the aroma as well. Medium body and rich mouthfeel. The grains of paradise in the flavor are an unusual taste. Very interesting and quite drinkable

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The pour was hazed golden. A white head sat on top and left a little lacing. The aroma was oranges and wheat. Flavors were those oranges with coriander, wheat, pale malts. The grains of paradise were kind of different here. They are described as a pepper replacement but that might be a stretch. Still, this was quite flavorful and a nice beer. The wheat gives crispness, mouthfeel, and complexity.
