22oz bottle, Sam Adams perfect pint, no freshness date.

Great White is just that, a very pale yellow, as near white as it gets in the beer world, with an unsubstantial white head. The color doesn't bother me at all, but the weak head definitely does in a wheat beer.

The aroma is light and floral; orange blossom, white tea, rosemary possibly, and the style's ubiquitous coriander.

The flavors are much the same. Light orange peel and wheat malt bounce off of savory herbs. That damn coriander is slightly woody in the background. This is a Wit I like more, though it isn't exactly conventional.

My brother noted its bevy of bubbles right off and he was correct. Great White is crisp, and I dare say effervescent.

Wit is one of my least favorite styles, though as I remember, Great White was one of my first craft beers and certainly my first wheat beer. I like it, I'm not likely to buy it again soon, and it isn't a very hearty Wit.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Very easy to drink, smooth wheat with some great undertones of citrus flavoring, just not too outstanding. Great summer brew - definitely would try again. Bought one as a sample pack at grocery store cuz I am interested in the Lost Coast Brewery and was not disappointed.
