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!

Free sample at the supermarket. Hazy yellow-orange pour with white head. Aroma was citrus, malty and spice. Taste was the same. A decent beer.

12 oz. bottle. Very similar to all the other seasonal witbiers from SA in the past… It pours a nice semi clear golden color with a shrinking white head. The aroma jumps out with ginger, tangerine, orange peel and wheat. The flavor has more tangerine, wheat and citrus peel, but too heavy and sweet to be really exciting. Not a bad beer by any means, but it needs to be dryer and lighter to showcase the subtleties.

Basically, a better version of Blue Moon. Small head fades quickly with little residual lacing. Crisp and wheaty mouthfeel. Citrus is more prominent than spice, which actually makes it pretty refreshing. Solid, but not great.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with long lasting, foamy white head. Aroma is of lemon zest, wheat malt and spices. Body is medium and crisp. A lot of spices, citrus fruit and wheat malt fill the mouth. Finish is medium and spicy. One of the better Wits IMO.

It smells like a belgian white ale, looks like a belgian white ale, tastes like a belgian white ale, I do not really like belgian white ales, but I might actually drink this again, probably only because the sampler pack I bought has two in it.

Pours a cloudy gold with a one finger head. Not much in terms of lacing. Aroma is coriander, citrus, white pepper. The taste is the same with a dry finish. Decent witbier.

Samuel Adams White Lantern has a thick, frothy, white head, lots of lacing film left behind, and a hazy, golden appearance, with a large amount of streaming bubbles. The aroma is of white wheat bread, bread crust, and citrus. Taste is of coriander, citrus juice, white bread, white pepper, and malt. Mouthfeel is watery and light, and Samuel Adams White Lantern finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a very good beer, and if you enjoy the style, you should like it.
