Bottled. From old notes. Cloudy as hell and full of spices. refreshing fruity flavor and some wheat, but too dominated by spices. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Reviewed from notes: used to drink a ton of this when it was a spring seasonal. Pours a very hazy golden rod with white head. Spices, coriander, light fruit, wheat, and clove on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied and chewy. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was foggy, slightly golden colored body with a thin white head that only lasted about a couple seconds.
The smell had some hops, lemon, orange, tangerine combined in an earthy sort of way.
The taste was bittersweet through citrus and hops.
The palate was about a medium, slightly sessionable, citrusy aftertaste, sticky finish.
Overall, good for a witbier, uh . . . only decent to me, unsure if I’d come back to ....? Brandon1989 (661) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2014

12 oz. bottle. Pours a light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly spices, light caramel, wheat and some citrus. The flavor is pretty light; some spices, citrus, caramel and wheat malt. An average witbier at best. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

4/29/2011: Samuel Adams White Ale... Aroma: Plenty of wheat malt goodness spiked with yeast, clove, a touch of nutmeg, and golden raisin. Appearance: Excellent pour into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass... Cloudy golden color; ample carbonation; 2-fingers Fof dense, puffy, off-white foam that doesn’t dissapear. Flavor: Caramel-toffee wheat malts with a delicate floral and citrus hoppiness; lemon bar sweetness with a splash of orange; good spice level that contains cinnamon and clove, sweet orange peel, and just a bit of allspice dryness. Palate: Medium-bodied, with a good feeling in the mouth; smooth and plenty airy without being over done. Overall: Quite good and definitely under-rated; this is another solid offering from a solid brewery that sometimes gets too much criticism; I’d rather drink this beer over Blue Moon!
12 fl. oz. bottle (Enjoy before July 2011) from Kroger Fresh Market in Harrison, Ohio. Rating #1084 for this beer.
A - A Pours a hazy orange with amber tones. A bone-white head with tight bubbles. One speck of lacing left behind.
S - Wheat grain, banana, chalky yeast, hints of lemon citrus and spice.
T - Coriander and citrus off the top. Mellow yeast behind dry grainy wheat. It has a kiss of sweetness along with a white peach tea flavor. Lemon is evident from front to back. Finishes semi dry.
M - Velvety creamy feel.
A slightly above average Wit. Good balance between ingredients. Amazing texture. Very smooth and creamy.

From bottle. Pours orange in color with nice white head. Aroma was bread, orange and some spice. Taste followed. The balance leaned toward sweet. Decent. Ed5388 (3480) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2013
