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!

firemarshal (150) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow, lasting head. Aroma was less pungent than most Witbiers I’ve had. Cereal grains, grassy hops, and spices dominate the aroma. Taste was a very nice combination of tangy citrus and lightly toasted wheat. Perfectly carbonated on the palate with a very smooth drinkability. This is the first Witbier I’ve ever truly enjoyed.

Aroma is citrus/orange, spices and fruit. The flavor is spices, citrus, wheat and a tangy/mildly tart finish. Best Sam Adams Witbier.

Cavie (3780) - 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.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with long lasting, foamy white head. Aroma is of lemon zest, wheat malt and spices. Body is medium and crisp. A lot of spices, citrus fruit and wheat malt fill the mouth. Finish is medium and spicy. One of the better Wits IMO.

poisoneddwarf (1701) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz bottle from the spring variety pack. Pours hazy gold with a medium collapsing off-white head. Aroma is full of coriander and orange (tangerine?) peel; an offnote of metal. Taste is lightly sweet and finishes dry; spicy, wheaty and citrusy. Nice witbier; no real deviations from other straightforward examples.

Pretty much a blue moon remake. It tastes pretty good, I would like to get more of these

MarkSachon (574) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2013
12 oz bottle from the Spring Thaw sampler case. As whites go this one could compete with some of the top contenders from Belgium. Impressed with the crisp and citrusy tastes and the clean finish.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazed gold with a medium to large dense white head. Big sweet citrus fruits, oranges and some lovely floral musk. Medium bodied, sweet tangerine coming through in a big way. Very clean and easy drinking, lots of lovely muskiness. Smooth musk into the finish with more tangerine. If this was presented to be me blind as a tangerine wit I’d have loved it, so I can’t knock it down because Sam Adams made it and I usually end up disappointed by their stuff. Well done.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 I am surprised by the low ratings. This beer is quite good for a wit with spice. Pours a cloudy light gold with a fair head that has low lacing that dissipates quickly. Not much nose, but there is slight floral sweetness present. Balance is outstanding with a stylistic mouthfeel. It finishes with a burst of spice, as intended, with no hop bitterness aftertaste. This a very good summer ale - quite drinkable.
