Sam Adams Imperial White pushes the boundaries of a witbier. While the brew delivers orange and coriander notes typical of a witbier, it has a bigger mouthfeel and body. It is truly a unique brew.
I agree with the ’truly a unique brew’ part. I can detect a bit of coriander after my taste buds plow through a mountain of residual sugar. And after I finished the glass I do get some residual orange. So I guess that qualifies as sort of like a witbier. Or it could just be a malt liquor with a lot of residual sugar and some spice.
7/6/13 bought from RW and drank at a BBQ at my house with A&D and M&D. Holy shit this beer was bad. Not what I expected at all. Tastes very Carmely and bleck. Thought it would be a nice summer beer for dinner. Not even close

Poured golden haze, one finger head, taste of carmel hits right away with several other flavors overwhelming the palate. Too busty for my taste. marcus (10865) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours light amber with a rich off-white head and a fruity and alcohol aroma There is a strangely sweet malty flavor that finishes very bitter and peppery. Not a good combination of tastes. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
September 2012. Bottle. The high alcohol is bringing this beer out of balance and makes it less enjoyable. The malt and yeast is showing through, but I did not enjoy this one.

"Sam Adams Imperial White pushes the boundaries of a witbier", is what they say. And boy do they. Too bad the boundary is a cliff into a cesspool. God-awful. Absolutely no balance whatsoever. "Lets bombbard our customers with all sorts of flavors and hope that it sells." Horrible. boozedude (2229) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2013
cloudy orange pour with white head, aroma of caramel ,pretty incredible for a 10.4% beer, very smooth, some fruit, and bitterness, good Majin (256) - West Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2013

Bottle. Orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma is strong with orange, citrus, yeast and spices.
Taste is sour with orange, yeast, anis. Bit too strong alcoholic aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel up until the end.
Tries a bit too much to be a lot of different thigs. Lots of flavors though.
