2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. RJT

Bottle; poured a dark gold color with an average white head. Aroma of spice/coriander, wheat, and orange. A fairly vibrant aroma. Flavor was pretty good too. Some nice spice and orange, with some vanilla in the finish. Enjoyed this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The new beer of the spring pack I was most impressed with seems to be the exception. A nice light flavor that isn’t too wheaty at all. Far superior to a Blue Moon, it’s quite smooth. Would definitely drink another.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Love the subtle coriander aroma. Milky gold color. Leaves a thin head. Tangy peppery spice taste. A touch of sourness in the finish. Quite enjoyable.
