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!

Sam Adams has been doing some stuff I like recently. Unfortunately this did not live up to what I’ve been seeing from them recently. This pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma has orange, powder, ginger, smoothness from wheat and cream. It has a medium body with a mushy feel to it and a decent amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with a powdery mix of spice and nothing standing out - it all seems quite muddled. There is also mushy malt and an odd cream quality. The finish adds a cough syrup aspect that leads to a fakeness taste. There’s lots of interesting ingredients here and it is a style I like a lot, but this one doesn’t do it for me.

12oz into a pint on a windy Sunday. A classic belgian orange take here. Spices of the typical citrus nature are in full effect, the color is a glowing type of orange and its an easy and refreshing drinker. Enjoyable, direct and a crowd pleaser here. Its a bit above a shock top really and thats b/c its Sam. Seems more of a summer brew than spring, but whatever. Its alright.

Citrusy, knocked on the head with coriander, cloyingly sweet, barely biting. This is one of Sam Adams’ worst offerings. Please go away forever so awful bad and no.

nearbeer (3613) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2013
12 oz. Hazy topaz with a large head that settles to a lasting disc. Aroma is citric acid, coriander, yeasty bread dough and crackers. Taste is way too much citrus peel for me, with some faint spicy bread showing in the aftertaste. It seems to be the tangerine peel that’s over the top. Near-medium body is balanced, with medium carbonation and finishes acidic-dry.

Pours hazy yellow into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet caramel and lemon aromas. Soft with coriander and wheat.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle from spring variety pack. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head that laces well. Nose is coriandery spice, lemongrassy hops, lime. Tastes rich, complex, with a pale malt and spicy flavor upfront and the lemon/lime kickiing in a fraction of a second later. Smooth and crisp, the only negative is that this one, like many other BBC beers, has that slight preservative twinge at the culmination that muddles things up a bit.

RedSox2004 (1214) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours hazy yellow/orange with a short-lives bright white head. Sharp citrus aromas with a subtle yeastiness and what I suppose is birds of paradise. Subtle malty sweetness with hints of hops and wheat. Light body, lively carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and a clean finish.
