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!

My last new bottle to try in the 2012 spring variety pack. Poured into pint glass a hazy orange-tinged golden color with white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and citrus spices. Taste is much the same adding coriander and other spices. Light body, moderate carbonation, yeasty sweet finish. Refreshing and easy drinking.

hazy gold pour with a thin white head. aroma is earthy wet hay.getting some subtle tangerine/orange under that. light spice. Flavour has a soft citrusy sweetness to it. definite house yeast (?) character combines with the grains of paradise to make sure you know itís a BBC brew. Bit maltier than the summer ale with a nice soft sweetness.

Part of their Spring Thaw 2013 mixed pack bought in Montpelier, VT. Hazy golden colour with a warm cap and small lace. Orange and light spices aromas. Even hints of maple. Refreshing mouthfeel. Orange taste with some mild coriander. Grain comes out in the aftertaste with honey notes. A different witbier that is interesting.

Hazy yellow with a disappearing head. The orange and coriander hit the nose with a crisp tartness. The flavors of the coriander and the grains of paradise are sharp but the body is a bit thin. The aftertaste is that of a clean tart.

"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.

Soft citrus and wheat. Hints of bananas. Wheat is subtle enough to make this pretty drinkable. Not bad at all ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle - part of their íSpring Thaw" variety pak, Murky light orange pour, soft white, beady head, dissipates quickly. Lemony aroma with some saffron-like spiciness. Flavor has some lemony accents, some yeasty notes, a hint of banana. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent enough.
