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.

Hazy golden color with a decent white head. Aroma is a tiny bit of coriander with some orange peel. Flavor is a nice bit of spice, definite notes of coriander. A little orange peel in the finish. Nice and light, easily drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I prefer the Imperial White, but this is a much better deal from Sam Adams. It’s 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 it’s a BBC brew. Bit maltier than the summer ale with a nice soft sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: cloudy orangey gold with one finger of bright white head shrinking to a creamy cap, with generous lace curtains. Aroma: marmalade, cracked wheat, yeast, and a bit of white peppercorn. Taste: a bit like orangina, with apricots, tangerine, and a grainy wheat cracker note over some pepper, coriander and general spice. Finish: tangy, slightly sweet, with a zingy combo of carbonation and spice to freshen the very end. Notes: Surprisingly excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy, dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of corriander and orange citrus. Taste is light sweet. Citrus and...this tastes like fucking fruity pebbles. I cant get that out of my head and now its all i taste. Light bodied with a relatively thick texture. Lively carbonation but not too long of a finish. Overall, not bad. Reminds me of how a blue moon should taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange with a two finger white head that fades into a ring of bubbles after a minute or so leaving a slight amount of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and biscuits with a bit of hops in the background. Taste is dulled down citrus (orange and tangerine), biscuits, malts and a hint of hops. This would certainly benefit from a boost in the citrus flavor. I hate to say it, but I would recommend adding a slice of orange to the glass when drinking. Abrupt finish with a very slight malt aftertaste. Thin palate but a decent body and average carbonation. Not bad, but not great either. Certainly not an exemplary white ale, but blows the macro Blue Moon types out of the water.
