4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The new beer of the spring pack I was most impressed with seems to be the exception. A nice light flavor that isnít too wheaty at all. Far superior to a Blue Moon, itís quite smooth. Would definitely drink another.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest with some hints of grains and yeast. Taste is a light spicy and citrus hop bitterness with a mild malty sweetness finishing with some dry and yeasty notes. A decent brew, but nothing memorable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 3/1/13
Aroma: The aroma is citrus/orange zest, some wheat, and plenty of coriander/spice
Appearance: It pours a hazy gold-orange color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes much the same, lots of orange and other citrus with plenty of spice and some wheat
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average-plus carbonation, and a lasting, tingly finish
This is a pretty solid one. It is nothing special, but it feels fairly on style, and is sessionable and enjoyable enough. It probably goes without saying, but Iíd be significantly happier to see this one on a menu then a Blue Moon.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sam Adams has been doing some stuff I like recently. Unfortunately this did not live up to what Iíve 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. Thereís lots of interesting ingredients here and it is a style I like a lot, but this one doesnít do it for me.

12 ounce bottle poured a golden color with aromas of light orange, orange peel, corriander and a touch if banana. Flavirs follow suit with a touch if spice thrown in. A nice witbeer overall, would easily drink again and again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. Thereís 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.
