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.

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!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with medium creamy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is orange peel and grain. Thin mouthfeel with strong citrus and light body with crisp finish. Easy to drink, very good refreshing wit.

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.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle from spring variety pack. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head that laces well. Nose is coriandery spice, lemongrassy hops, lime. Tastes rich, complex, with a pale malt and spicy flavor upfront and the lemon/lime kickiing in a fraction of a second later. Smooth and crisp, the only negative is that this one, like many other BBC beers, has that slight preservative twinge at the culmination that muddles things up a bit.
