Bottle. Pours a hazy yellowish-orange with a decent... I'd say two finger white head.
Aroma - Lots of orange and lemon citrus zest and wheat.
Taste - Nice and clean. Fruity and tangy at first with a more peppery, spice rolling through the middle before a crisp wheat and mild citrus hops bitterness in the finish. There's a contant orange/lemon zest flavor throughout the beer. Light to medium body and is slightly grainy on the finish.
I think it's a great and somewhat unique flavor for a summer brew. It's perfect on a hot summer day. And is my personal favorite of the Sam seasonals. It does seem to taste a little different to me this year though, as though they may have tweaked the recipe a tiny bit this year. Could be wrong though.
