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!

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a fairly opaque gold body that supports a wafer thin bright white head. The mild aroma has sugar sweetness, pear candy, sugar sweetened spices and then a light sweet citrusy lime candy note. The taste unloads mounds of sugary sweetness that is a mix of table sugar, sweet pear juice, sugary green apple and lime hard candy. Beneath the sweetness are mild spices like clove and sugary coriander as well as theres more sweet pear and apple notes. Way too sweet and sugary. I will not try this again.

Bottle. Pours hazy pale amber with a small off white head that dissipated with some lacing. Aroma is wheat, orange peel, spices, cardboard. Flavor is the same, not too spicy. Light sweet, minimal bitterness, light zesty. Medium body

PorterPounder (7806) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle - part of their Spring Thaw" variety pak, Murky light orange pour, soft white, beady head, dissipates quickly. Lemony aroma with some saffron-like spiciness. Flavor has some lemony accents, some yeasty notes, a hint of banana. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent enough.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7619) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
After a number of pretty mediocre attempts as doing a Belgian Wit Boston Beer Company finally managed to pull it off. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy apricot color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish orange, honey and bread. The flavor was musty yet fairly sweet with notes of coriander, orange, bread, biscuit and honey. Long musty orange and coriander finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done.

Strykzone (7247) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The pour was hazed golden. A white head sat on top and left a little lacing. The aroma was oranges and wheat. Flavors were those oranges with coriander, wheat, pale malts. The grains of paradise were kind of different here. They are described as a pepper replacement but that might be a stretch. Still, this was quite flavorful and a nice beer. The wheat gives crispness, mouthfeel, and complexity.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2013
12 oz bottle from Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). This ended up in one slot of my Noble Pils sixer. Im a little upset about it. So I guess Ill rate it. Pours a dulled hazy golden orange hue, firmer haze in the body, brighter golden edges with a small frothy offwhite head. Stays as a decent layer, laces small. Lively carbonation, a bit darker in the body almost amber. Aromas are firmer strong coriander, flaked wheat, bit of suntan lotion. Mellow orange rind and fruit grows, dough, some estery fruit. Bigger coriander presence than I generally like, a little sweet. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a bit of jump in the middle. Some fuzzy dry carbonation hits the palate into the middle. Front end is a bit soapy, floral, gentle citrusy orange and fruit. Middle is a bit bland, doughy, and fruity. Some gentle dryness at times, mellow carbonation. Backend shows some sweeter bread, wheat, and dough. A bit grainy, with gentle florals and soap. Backend is a bit bland, orange oils are subtle with lingering earth, gentle yeastiness, and lingering coriander coolness. A bit odd. The nose felt like a coriander bomb but the beer itself was a bit more enjoyable, a bit dry, if a bit flabby at times. Ok. Not really my choice for a Wit though.

BlackHaddock (7047) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
10th July 2014 bottle from a mixed Samuel Adams pack my son-in-law bought because I like different beers. It was hot and I wanted something to cool me down, this did so without testing my taste buds too greatly. Misty yellow body with a full white head. Subdued aroma and flavours of the usual Witbier style, orangey, wheaty and spicy. This was OK, but it is not my sort of brew and although I have tried a few over the years I struggle to really enjoy them: scored objectively.

AirForceHops (7044) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 13, 2013
"Spring Thaw" mix pack 12 oz. bottle. My Sam Adams perfect pint glass shows a hazy gold with thin white lasting head. Smell is citrus and spicy wheat. The taste is fruity, lots of orange peel, lemons, and thin bread malt. Really to me it takes like a Sam Summer with spices added. Flavor really is nearly identical. Well, I applaud Mr. Koch for smart marketing strategy. This and a few others (Maple Pecan Porter and Double Agent IPL) are only offered in the Spring Thaw pack.
