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

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Enjoy by August 2013. Mildly hazy golden - orange color. Thin off white bubbly head, fades to minimal. Just little loose dots of lace. Doesn’t look bad, but much darker than most white ales I’ve seen. Orange peel, some spice, light belgian-type yeast. Moderate strength more smooth carbonation, medium body. Lightly dry, light stickiness. Tangy sweetness. Decent witbier.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazed gold with a medium to large dense white head. Big sweet citrus fruits, oranges and some lovely floral musk. Medium bodied, sweet tangerine coming through in a big way. Very clean and easy drinking, lots of lovely muskiness. Smooth musk into the finish with more tangerine. If this was presented to be me blind as a tangerine wit I’d have loved it, so I can’t knock it down because Sam Adams made it and I usually end up disappointed by their stuff. Well done.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light golden orange pour that is slightly murky. Small white head. This is a little bland overall - the citrus and spice character is somewhat muted and muddled together.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle pours with a fairly opaque gold body that supports a wafer thin bright white head. The mild aroma has sugar sweetness, pear candy, sugar sweetened spices and then a light sweet citrusy lime candy note. The taste unloads mounds of sugary sweetness that is a mix of table sugar, sweet pear juice, sugary green apple and lime hard candy. Beneath the sweetness are mild spices like clove and sugary coriander as well as there’s more sweet pear and apple notes. Way too sweet and sugary. I will not try this again.
