Why do so many people like this beer? I tried one in a bar one day after a few preferred beers, cleansed my palate with some snacks beforehand, and still didnít think much of it. Expensive to boot... Incidentally, are we supposed to think that Sam Adams was some raging alcoholic or the like? Look at the label.

To begin with the beer had a great aroma that hinted at the complexity of flavors that was to come. However, at times the beer seemed too complex, with so many different spices and flavors that it was often hard to process.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2004 Pours out beautiful amber red color with nice head. Nice malty flavor from the wheat. Nice earthly taste. Still lack on hops!! But, really nice brew. Really enjoy it!! Samuel Adams is the best!!

I had the one called winter warmer..I really liked the flavor, it had a slightly fruity taste to it. It had no head and was a darkish color. I can only really complain that it was completely flat, I need carbonation!! reminded me of a pale ale kinda.

WOW! Not a huge surprise since Sam Adamís has made some great beer for yearís but still a little taken back at this one! Wheaty aroma and a dark amber pour. Hints of molasses and spices. No bitter aftertaste that I was expecting. Really good!

Enjoyable beer that conjures up wintery sensations. Complex on first sip, gets more simple and malty as you go on drinking.
