COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Aroma is yeasty and doughy. Pours murky orange with a thick, frothy white head. Taste starts off like a wheat beer, but the spice flavors come out in the finish.

Copper amber with a slight haze, one-finger bright white head and moderate lacing. Big boozy aroma with spice, caramel, toffee, and oak. Flavors are similar, dominated by an oaky alcohol, almost cask-like, with the caramel sweetness strong throughout. Medium to full body, gereously effervescent, slightly oily mouthfeel, and the alcohol and caramel sweetness linger.

12 oz bottle from Wilbur’s. Orange-amber and pretty clear with a fluffy off-white head and visible sediment. The aroma is wheat malts, oranges, herbs, citrus, caramel and light booze. The flavor is similar. Pretty full body, soft and smooth feel with a boozy finish. Not my favorite

Pours a nice amber color with thin white head. Good nose of spice, orange. Should stop there. Alcohol overpowers the taste. There is some spice tasted in the background, but the booze paired with the syrupy consistency makes this one to avoid. Blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden orange pour. Aroma of coriander and a little bit of citrus. Flavor has the same notes, but unfortunately also features lots of booze. The spices fade right into the boozy finish, which is kind of interesting, but overall this experiment didn’t really work out.

DCLawyer (2846) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 Bottle->weizen. Hazy orange/gold with small white head. Aroma: coriander, orange, wheat. Taste: wheat, spices, citrus peel. Oily and boozy, somewhat cloying. Not a fan. Second taste after a year in the cellar. Served very cold. Deep orange with bare head. A: caramel malt, dark fruit, dank yeast. T: lots of caramel malt, some coriander and citrus peel, but more subdued and rounded than when fresh. This was a hot mess when new, has mellowed in the cellar, but still lacks balance. Third taste after two years in the cellar. Bottle->Trappist. Murky deep orange with small offwhite head. A: wheat, wet hay, dank spice. T: cadied yeast, wheat, wet cardboard. Much better than when fresh, slightly better than 1 year old. Still a bit of a mess though.

Bouteille de 1pt 6 oz. Présentation différente de la photo (un lion rampant a remplacé le bon vieux Sam). Merci Patrick. Bière dorée à la limite du cuivrée avec une mousse beige pâle, épaisse et crémeuse. Drôle de nez avec ce qui me semble être des épices, du blé cru et du malt pâle. La bouche est drôle, un peu désorganisée. Elle est forte, puissante en alcool, sucrée. Elle écœure à la limite. Impossible de terminer la bouteille. Unique...une chance !!

Une robe dorée très foncée et une petite coiffe qui n’a rien de spectaculaire. Un nez qui ne réveille aucune passion. Beaucoup de malts blonds et sucrés à travers un alcool fruité et épicé. Sur les papilles, une certaine lourdeur maltée qui apporte dans son sillage un bouquet de coriandre et de poivre chaud. Quelques gorgées plus loin, une franche apparition de saveurs fruitées qui me font penser à un mélange d’orange et de banane. En bouche, un liquide qui montre un corps bien gras avec une infiltration modérée des bulles. La texture me semble huileuse. En finale, une impérialité bien sentie avec son alcool et ses notes trop sucrées. Tout compte fait, une bière plus ou moins facile à boire et sans aucun doute ennuyante.
