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!

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy golden with a small white head that didnít stay long. Aroma of spices, citrus fruit combined with grain. Taste of citrus fruit, grain, some banana notes and some spices. Easy to drink, not bad.

Poured into a perfect pint. 3.75 A: Moderately hazed dark yellow color. Two fingers of pillowy white head. Retention is good and a moderate amount of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Mountain stream freshness is the first thing that comes to mind. Next comes coriander and possibly some orange peel. Neutral wheatiness with light pepper from the yeast. Overall quite pleasant. 3.75 T: The taste takes the nose and adds a powerful citrus component. Orange, lemon, and even some mango and pineapple enter the fray. Again a neutral wheat, coriander, orange peel, and pepper. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderate creaminess that goes down quite well. 4.0 D: Pretty good beer with no real faults. DavoleBomb, Jun 01, 2013

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler in late 2013. A: Cloudy orange with a 1/2 finger head. S: Orange, tangerine, spice. T: Follows the nose. O: I feel that there are better wits out there, but this one is ok. The orange and tangerine go together nicely. The spice isnít as strong as it is in others.

A bit boring, and nothing fun....but I drank it, and would do it again if it was presented to me.

Not the best example if a Belgian ale. A bit flat and not inviting. After a few sips, dumped it out. In a pinch OK but not great.

Cloudy dark amber. Fizzy shrinking white head. Sharp spice scent. Weird flavour; vanilla, soap, yeast and mild pepper.

"Not bad. I think the grains of paradise make this juuuuust a bit better than average. otherwise, why another wit? nothing to get excited about, but reasonably crisp, clean and refreshing..."

I kind of enjoy this, even though I donít love Belgian wheat beers. Itís a little floral, but not so much that I canít drink it. Also it has a flavor of lemon drop candies also, which is a good idea always. Overall, it isnít bad for sure

Highly refreshing with a mild wheat character and hints of citrus and spices. Not a lot of flavor but a good thirst-quencher.

THOUGHTS: A slight tweak on a classic style. Itís OK, but was it really necessary? This was at least the fourth variation of a wit that Sam Adams has made. Sometimes it seems their only focus is crating as many brands and variations as they possibly can. And itís not even the best example. This one was a little on the sweet side and nearly cloying by the end. The building acidity was the only thing keeping the sweetness from getting out of control. TECHNICAL: Drank 3/10/2013. Bottle. Poured a hazy, light orange with a small, nearly white head. The aroma contained light to moderate wheat; light to moderate yeast; light tangerine; and light spices. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet and acidic. There was Tangerine, coriander and pepper. The light to medium body was creamy with a rather fizzy head and a lightly astringent finish.
