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.

Banana and bubblegum is what this beer smells like. Definitely unusual for a white. Actually a more interesting offer from Sam Adams.

Prometheus (160) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2010
Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Wheat and orange in the aroma. Citrus and flowers in the flavor with no change. A wit with a bit more bite.

Orange with and off white head and nice lacing. Aroma was cloying orange, grass and cardboard. Flavor was spicy, orange and thick.

6 oz serving from a 12 oz bottle poured into a tumbler. Nice amber with a kind of orange tint. Little white head. Nose is sweet malts and a bit fruity. It’s a pretty big beer, taste is a bit zesty and the finish is spicy, but its still well-balanced with fruit and citrus notes and bit of a kick from the alcohol. Not really familiar with the style so it was an interesting try- thumbs up.

Cloudy amber, thin off-white head. Pleasant, complex flavor. Definitely Boston Beer’s best yet.

4.1
CJfromPhilly (140) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Pours from the 12 oz bottle an orangish-amber with a thick foamy head that settles into a heavy collar. There’s an almost macro like fizziness...LOTSA bubbles rising to the top. Aroma is wonderful, a mixture of fruit (orange & banana) and a caramel/toffee note. The flavor is big, bold and wonderful as well. I pick up hints of the aforementioned fruit plus the caramel/toffee, plus a bubblegum like sweetness. The alcohol is present and gets more noticeable as the beer warms, but doesn’t take away from the experience. The mouthfeel is quite substansial...this is a thick, almost chewy beer. Overall, a big, bold, BEAUTIFUL beer from Jim Koch & the crew at Boston Beer Company!! This is top notch stuff, and I hope there’s more on the shelves when I make my next beer run!!!

2.5
cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Aromas of spices and rum rasin. Clear copper color. It has a sugary toffee flavor that’s a bit too intense. This is NOT a white ale for people who enjoy white ales! The mouthfeel is oily and full-bodied. The alcohol is too high for a white ale, by double or more. It’s just too much of everything.

3.4
MaroonOrange (137) - - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle. Viscous beer with little head. Aroma is Belgian yeast with cloves and pepper. Thick mouthfeel with a creamy texture. Taste is sweet with bananas, milk and white chocolate.

3.6
gbe75 (134) - ICELAND - JUL 14, 2012
Aroma of sweet malty caramel and citrus. Golden and hazy in color. Very sweet taste.
