3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Best before June 2013.
Appearance: The body is hazy with a straw to amber hue, a bit darker than I like in a witbier, The head is also lacking a little bit in height, but is dense and leaves a creamy coating on top.
Aroma: The aroma reminds me of lemon scented dish soap. Itís not awful, but itís not pleasing either.
Taste: Slightly spicy, slightly sweet, with prominent lemon mostly on the finish. This is okay.
Palate: Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation.
Overall: This is an okay beer, but I think it comes off weak. The lemon comes off as dish soap in quality and I donít enjoy it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle poured into a Sam Adams glass.
Aroma: Sour yeast, some citrus and spice.
Appearance: Hazy, milky yellow. No head.
Taste: Starts off with spiced oranges and tangerines, and ends yeasty and bready. Not bad. Pretty average.
Palate: Exceptionally fizzy and light. Lingers a little, but it fades quickly.
Overall: Pretty decent witbier. Better than some other ones out there, but not my favorite by far.

I prefer the Imperial White, but this is a much better deal from Sam Adams. Itís got the nice orange/coriander combination swirling around in the hazy brew that is just really nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
hazy gold pour with a thin white head.
aroma is earthy wet hay.getting some subtle tangerine/orange under that. light spice.
Flavour has a soft citrusy sweetness to it. definite house yeast (?) character combines with the grains of paradise to make sure you know itís a BBC brew. Bit maltier than the summer ale with a nice soft sweetness.
