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!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw in color, slight sediment, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Bright spicy nose, corriander, grains of paradise, and a candied citrus peel.   Remains spicy on the tongue, strong, but not sharp.   Also a mealy wheatiness.   Spices die off rather quickly, leaving only the mealy wheatiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong nose, strong start, falls off rather quickly.   Wished this one were brighter.   Tiz pretty much middle of the road.

Aroma is citrus/orange, spices and fruit. The flavor is spices, citrus, wheat and a tangy/mildly tart finish. Best Sam Adams Witbier.

Braudog (6580) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle. This has the look of any number of American takes on witbier, slightly hazy and orange-gold. Not much of an aroma here. But the beer drinks with a decently respectable body, just a hint of spice and gristiness, but generally drinks like a "regular ol beer." Clean and unoffending. (#5188, 8/3/2013)

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is a little too heavy on the coriander for my tastes, it smells a bit soapy. A hefty citrus peel aroma as well with a little yeastiness and wheat. The flavor is pretty similar to what I thought was coming based on the nose, an overly spiced and rather typical American interpretation of a Wit. Not a whole lot of flavors coming from the yeast, not much makes it past all the citrus peel and coriander. Finishes with a bit of soapy coriander and orange zest. Fairly soft on the mouthfeel with gentle carbonation. Pretty poor Wit, but Im sure those with limited exposure to them might like it just fine.

Patrickctenchi (6469) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours hazy gold with a tall, white head. Zesty orange-lemon aroma. Taste is spiced wheat, orange. Crisp, strongly fruit-sweet. Pleasant, but nothing special.

joeneugs (6314) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Very similar to all the other seasonal witbiers from SA in the past It pours a nice semi clear golden color with a shrinking white head. The aroma jumps out with ginger, tangerine, orange peel and wheat. The flavor has more tangerine, wheat and citrus peel, but too heavy and sweet to be really exciting. Not a bad beer by any means, but it needs to be dryer and lighter to showcase the subtleties.

Sam Adams has been doing some stuff I like recently. Unfortunately this did not live up to what Ive been seeing from them recently. This pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma has orange, powder, ginger, smoothness from wheat and cream. It has a medium body with a mushy feel to it and a decent amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with a powdery mix of spice and nothing standing out - it all seems quite muddled. There is also mushy malt and an odd cream quality. The finish adds a cough syrup aspect that leads to a fakeness taste. Theres lots of interesting ingredients here and it is a style I like a lot, but this one doesnt do it for me.

Suttree (6296) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
From the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Cloudy orange, decent white head. Pretty typical for the style, I guess. Some yeasty notes, some wheaty notes, some spicy notes. Perhaps a tad overbearing.
