The beer pours with a pillowy, large bubble, white colored head. The foam slides up and down the glass as you drink, almost no lacing at all. The color of the beer is best described as a semi-opaque/yellow straw, with a touch of orange.
For a nose expect a bit of citrus, and a bit a malt. Somewhat of a spicy orange smell.
The taste starts with the citrus flavors, and then gives way to the spice on the end. This is a wheat beer, so you defiantly get the wheat feel and somewhat of a yeast taste.
The mouthfeel is very thin, and somewhat disappointing for this brewery. Slight carbonation, and a crisp citrusy finish.
Of all the seasonal beers that Sam Adams produces, this is certainly my least favorite. This brew is better than most of the gimmicky seasonals that you will find on the shelf of your local supermarket, but certainly at the bottom end of what the Samuel Adams brewery puts out. Not a bad beer, but not something that I will go out of my way to find, or even order in a bar.
