COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian style white ales have a long history of unique ingredients, as brewers experimented with spices discovered during the spice trade. For our hazy brew we found a refreshing combination of crisp wheat, the tangy sweetness of tangerine & orange peel, and the subtle spiciness of coriander & grains of paradise. Cheers!

Citrusy, knocked on the head with coriander, cloyingly sweet, barely biting. This is one of Sam Adams’ worst offerings. Please go away forever so awful bad and no.

Appearance is a golden cloudy beer with a 2cm head. Tast is lightly bitter with citrius flavors with oranges and hints of lemon. Sweetness is light.

12 oz. Hazy topaz with a large head that settles to a lasting disc. Aroma is citric acid, coriander, yeasty bread dough and crackers. Taste is way too much citrus peel for me, with some faint spicy bread showing in the aftertaste. It seems to be the tangerine peel that’s over the top. Near-medium body is balanced, with medium carbonation and finishes acidic-dry.

Pours hazy yellow into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet caramel and lemon aromas. Soft with coriander and wheat.

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle from spring variety pack. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head that laces well. Nose is coriandery spice, lemongrassy hops, lime. Tastes rich, complex, with a pale malt and spicy flavor upfront and the lemon/lime kickiing in a fraction of a second later. Smooth and crisp, the only negative is that this one, like many other BBC beers, has that slight preservative twinge at the culmination that muddles things up a bit.

2.8
RedSox2004 (1975) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours hazy yellow/orange with a short-lives bright white head. Sharp citrus aromas with a subtle yeastiness and what I suppose is birds of paradise. Subtle malty sweetness with hints of hops and wheat. Light body, lively carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and a clean finish.

jcartamdg (3535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours a milky gold with little to no head. Aroma of coriander, orange peal and spices. Taste follows, overly spiced and a bit under attenuated. Below average Belgian wit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours straw with a medium-sized white head. Aroma was very perfumey with lots of orange and some wheat. Flavor was heavy on the orange peel and coriander. Rather unbalanced. Overly sweet too. Not unlike a Blue Moon.

smaynard6000 (1243) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours hazy bright yellow with small white head. Subtle aroma of orange peel and wheat. Light bodied with some spiciness and tangerine notes. Has me counting the days until spring. Good.

3.2
Chudwick (3369) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JAN 16, 2013
12oz bottle - pours hazy orange with white head and thin lacing nose is lemon peel and spicy (cloves?). flavor adds hay, orange and wheat. in a blind taste I probably wouldn’t be able to tell this apart from a Blue Moon.
