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!

wlajwl (6873) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Aroma is citrus/orange, spices and fruit. The flavor is spices, citrus, wheat and a tangy/mildly tart finish. Best Sam Adams Witbier.

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.

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 (6682) - 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 I’m sure those with limited exposure to them might like it just fine.

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.

3.3
ben4321 (6547) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 3/1/13

Aroma: The aroma is citrus/orange zest, some wheat, and plenty of coriander/spice
Appearance: It pours a hazy gold-orange color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes much the same, lots of orange and other citrus with plenty of spice and some wheat
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average-plus carbonation, and a lasting, tingly finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid one. It is nothing special, but it feels fairly on style, and is sessionable and enjoyable enough. It probably goes without saying, but I’d be significantly happier to see this one on a menu then a Blue Moon.

vyvvy (6517) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Sam Adams has been doing some stuff I like recently. Unfortunately this did not live up to what I’ve 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. There’s lots of interesting ingredients here and it is a style I like a lot, but this one doesn’t do it for me.

2.5
mansquito (6488) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Office Party: Pours light orange, slightly hazy, with a white head. Aroma is spice, lemon, and a bit of orange. Taste is sweet and very lemony. Tastes almost like a radler. Soda-like. Yes, I am sure that I didn’t take a porchrocker.
