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!

Braudog (6286) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle. This has the look of any number of American takes on witbier, slightly hazy and orange-gold. Not much of an aroma here. But the beer drinks with a decently respectable body, just a hint of spice and gristiness, but generally drinks like a "regular ol’ beer." Clean and unoffending. (#5188, 8/3/2013)

BlackHaddock (6201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
10th July 2014 bottle from a mixed Samuel Adams pack my son-in-law bought because I like ’different beers’. It was hot and I wanted something to cool me down, this did so without testing my taste buds too greatly. Misty yellow body with a full white head. Subdued aroma and flavours of the usual ’Witbier’ style, orangey, wheaty and spicy. This was OK, but it is not my sort of brew and although I have tried a few over the years I struggle to really enjoy them: scored objectively.

Mora2000 (6154) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and coriander. The flavor has a lot of coriander and grains of paradise as well as some orange peel and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

AirForceHops (6073) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 13, 2013
"Spring Thaw" mix pack 12 oz. bottle. My Sam Adams perfect pint glass shows a hazy gold with thin white lasting head. Smell is citrus and spicy wheat. The taste is fruity, lots of orange peel, lemons, and thin bread malt. Really to me it takes like a Sam Summer with spices added. Flavor really is nearly identical. Well, I applaud Mr. Koch for smart marketing strategy. This and a few others (Maple Pecan Porter and Double Agent IPL) are only offered in the Spring Thaw pack.

Suttree (6043) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
From the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Cloudy orange, decent white head. Pretty typical for the style, I guess. Some yeasty notes, some wheaty notes, some spicy notes. Perhaps a tad overbearing.

TheBeerGod (5983) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a medium, dense white head. Aroma is spicy with lots of citrus zest, orange and grains. Taste is mostly sweet with soft lemon candy, candied orange, wheat notes yeast and light spices. Body is medium with a dense, prickly carbonation. Ends with more spices, sweet malt notes, grains, yeast and candied citrus fruit. Not bad.

Patrickctenchi (5944) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours hazy gold with a tall, white head. Zesty orange-lemon aroma. Taste is spiced wheat, orange. Crisp, strongly fruit-sweet. Pleasant, but nothing special.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is a little too heavy on the coriander for my tastes, it smells a bit soapy. A hefty citrus peel aroma as well with a little yeastiness and wheat. The flavor is pretty similar to what I thought was coming based on the nose, an overly spiced and rather typical American interpretation of a Wit. Not a whole lot of flavors coming from the yeast, not much makes it past all the citrus peel and coriander. Finishes with a bit of soapy coriander and orange zest. Fairly soft on the mouthfeel with gentle carbonation. Pretty poor Wit, but I’m sure those with limited exposure to them might like it just fine.

wlajwl (5673) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Aroma is citrus/orange, spices and fruit. The flavor is spices, citrus, wheat and a tangy/mildly tart finish. Best Sam Adams Witbier.
