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!

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

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.

ben4321 (6020) - 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 Id be significantly happier to see this one on a menu then a Blue Moon.

This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of foamy very off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated semi-hazy dark yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was citrus and coriander. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering sweet aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of chamomile citrus fruity and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest with some hints of grains and yeast. Taste is a light spicy and citrus hop bitterness with a mild malty sweetness finishing with some dry and yeasty notes. A decent brew, but nothing memorable.

Lemon lime and coriander nose. Hazy golden, medium head. Fizzy . Stale malt and unmalted barley flavor, wheat bread crust, lemon, coriander. Spicier and fruitier than Shock Top, maltier than Blue Moon, eerily similar quality though. I have defended Boston Beers craft brewery status for years against those who suggest they should no longer be considered craft. Despite its size, Boston Beer has continued to make quality beer in a variety of interesting styles. This beer, however, makes me at least consider if they havent sold out.

The new beer of the spring pack I was most impressed with seems to be the exception. A nice light flavor that isnt too wheaty at all. Far superior to a Blue Moon, its quite smooth. Would definitely drink another.

mansquito (5766) - 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 didnt take a porchrocker.

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.

EithCubes (5669) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Fresh bottle by JUN 2013. Nose of lemon cleaner with something short of coriander soup, sweet and tangy. Pours hazy yellow with a smooth white head. Taste is sweet, some powdery lemon cleanser, stripping bready-yeasty character to finish. Malt is not very diverse but its not expected to be, does its job of support and gets out of the way, of course no hops or bitterness here. Always makes me happy to see Sammys commitment to grains of paradise, though theyre not very evident here. Smooth, slightly slick medium-full body.
