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!

Hazy yellow orange in the glass with thin white head, aromas of orange zest and lemon and a slight spiciness. The taste is all citrus with orange being dominant, very crisp finish. Overall tasty and highly drinkable.

demitriustown (1068) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2013
12oz bottle: Aroma is tangerine, coriander, yeast, lightly flowery, and an overall nice scent to it. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a medium white head that diminishes into a soapy film. Taste is coriander, fruity, nice spice notes but not overpowering, and a nicely wheat texture. Palate is medium to high carbonation in the mouth with a lingering wheat note in the aftertaste. Overall, Decent stuff, enjoyable to drink and taste good. Cheers!

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.

12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy light orange with a white head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is coriander, orange peel, wheat, all the trademarks of the style, moderately spicy, almost like pepper. Taste is full and creamy, wheat, coriander and orange are all there, very tasty, no off notes. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Very good!

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The pour was hazed golden. A white head sat on top and left a little lacing. The aroma was oranges and wheat. Flavors were those oranges with coriander, wheat, pale malts. The grains of paradise were kind of different here. They are described as a pepper replacement but that might be a stretch. Still, this was quite flavorful and a nice beer. The wheat gives crispness, mouthfeel, and complexity.

superspak (2611) - Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before August 2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, tangerine, orange peel, pear, coriander, pepper, wheat, light clove, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with solid balance of malt, spice, and yeast notes; but it is very weak. Taste of lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, coriander, pepper, wheat, bread, light clove, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, coriander, pepper, wheat, bread, light clove, and earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice and pleasant flavors with good balance of malt, spice, and yeast esters; with a fair amount of robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very solid witbier. A little weak on flavors; but is well balanced and very easy to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
