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!

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.

Very sweet, light, and mildly fruity. Refreshing, little to no head but non-offensive, chill taste.

What blue moon wishes it could be... and I really enjoy blue moon! An over the top Belgian wit .. lots of citrus in the nose and taste,a bit prickly, and finishes with a bit of sweetness. Excellent new addition to Samís lineup

Cloudy yellowish orange. Orange tangerines and great corriander flavor. Much better than expected. A touch of pepper flavor from the grains of paradise. One of my favorite wits to date.

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.

I prefer the Imperial White, but this is a much better deal from Sam Adams. Itís got the nice orange/coriander combination swirling around in the hazy brew that is just really nice.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Hints of lemon, citrus, spice. A- Golden color, hazy liquid, thin white head. T- Notes of lemon, orange and coriander. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth citrusy finish. O- Reminds me of a Hoegaarden with less spice and more citrus. A very refreshing offering from Sam Adams.

I like it but what a scam. This is the old spring white seasonal under a new name. Glad they brought it back at least cuz it was my favorite of their seasonals. Hazy yellow pour with a medium fizzy head. Full body with notes of orange peel and straw wheat.

After a number of pretty mediocre attempts as doing a Belgian Wit Boston Beer Company finally managed to pull it off. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy apricot color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish orange, honey and bread. The flavor was musty yet fairly sweet with notes of coriander, orange, bread, biscuit and honey. Long musty orange and coriander finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done.
