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!

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with bright white head. Aroma is very light lemon breadiness. Taste is a light grapefruit, grassy citrus. Smooth drinker. Would be a decent sessionable brew in the summer.

Cloudy, straw pour. Smells of lemon and spices. Tastes like their Summer Ale with a hint of oranges. Rather pale with slight peppery after taste.

Soft citrus and wheat. Hints of bananas. Wheat is subtle enough to make this pretty drinkable. Not bad at all ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle from a mixed spring 12 pack. The aroma is very fruity with lots of lemon and orange citrus notes. Underlying coriander, and a little burnt rubber, too. Moderately hazy yellow-orange body with a creamy, rather rapidly dissipating white head present. Starts with a coriander-like spiciness, before a little orange and citrus character takes over in the middle. Heavy wheat malt chewiness comes through late. Light spicy and herbal finish. Pretty good. Not sure how different this is than their Summer Ale.

Pours light golden with a thin wispy white head. Notes of pale malt, sweet citrus, hay, grains of paradise. Medium bodied, lively carbonation.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Tan and hazy, some rising bubbles, 1/2 finger head and sparse lace. Aroma is spices, coriander, pepper, citrus (lemon, orange peel, grapefruit), yeast. Taste follows the aroma, spicy with pepper and citrus flavors, some bready and toast type malts, sweetness, wheat, yeast, cloves and coriander. Body is pretty light and drinkable with a spicy aftertaste. Overall it’s decent but isn’t my favorite wit nor my favorite from Sam Adams.
