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!

hotstuff (3953) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 11-04-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a large white head that mostly diminished, hazy pale yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, orange, semi-sweet, spicy, and coriander. The Taste is sweet, orange, wheat malt, tangy, and lightly spicy. The Palate is smooth and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, this is a refreshing beer and can be considered a session beer. A beer I would consider drinking again.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bad label, foggy pear gold brew, thin bubbly head. Danish pastry aroma, yeasty, orange, lightly sweet; has a doggy tone at times. Wow, I really like this. There’s a definite black pepper tone to the beer, and it leans towards being savory. Like pepper on a jammy biscuit; tangy, lightly sweet, honey tones. Biscuity on the lips. Lightish body, crisp. Publix, I-10.

cheap (3803) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2013
From a bottle smells a little soapy. Taste is spiced white beer, but not over the top. Not bad I guess. Yes, a little more spicey than yer typical white beer. Finish has a tad of that mild ale bitteness on the back of the throat.

Is it just me? or is sam adams actually getting markedly better at their special releases? Clearish golden pour with decent ring of white head. Nose is a little muddled, mainly orange peel. Flavor is more of a blend of coriander, and orange, and even a little banana hint. Spiciness is hiding in the background. Very smooth and big chewy creamy body. I’d pick this over a blue moon, but not over an authentic belgian witbeir. tasty though.

Cavie (3672) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle from Ashley. Pours a light golden yellow color with a gentle foamy head. Aroma is nice. Big citrus aroma with pepper and slight funk. Flavor is also big citrus with some tang on the finish. Good.

bottle. lightly hazy glowing gold under a medium, fluffy, fizzy white head. easy citrus with a meringue aroma. flavor is also merinque like with hints of vanilla and graininess. soft carbonation level gives the beer a full body and easily drinkable texture. this is good stuff. one of the best belgian whites to come around for a long time.

It appears that somebody likes this, or at least, it isn’t at the bottom of the style. But although I found a few decent notes in the front end, the mid and late finish tends to hollow out. A little spice, a very slight sweetness. Somewhat drinkable but not especially enjoyable. Bottle.

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.
