Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Manzanitas pint glass
From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $7.99 (w/ VONS card) for a 6-pack
Purchased: Feb. 16, 2014
Consumed: Feb. 16, 2014
Misc.: Enjoy by May 2014
Poured a golden hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides of the glass on the way down. Below average amount of light film on the way down.
First thought of smell was, ‘Yeah, this is a Sam Adams beer.’ Got orange rind, spicy notes, light Circus Peanuts, cloves, wheat, lemon, honey, coriander, nutmeg and some tropical notes.
Tasted honey, orange rind, coriander, wheat, grassy hops, cloves, light sour fruits - kiwi, grapes and still those tropical hops.
Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Soft carbonation. Slightly abrupt finish.
Overall this was a decent witbier. I’d have it again, especially the other five that I have in the 6-pack.

This beer poured a hazy orange color with a small white head. There was a bit of lace.
A peppery, spicy nose. Maybe a little citrus?
Taste of pepper and coriander. And yes, some orange.
This beer didn't really do anything for me. Thin, not much to it.
At $2.99 for a bomber, I thought it was a good price. It just isn't a very good beer.

The notches on the label tell me this 12 ounce bottle will be filled with "brewery fresh beer" until April of this year.
Pours heavily clouded, dull darker apricot. Sturdy and lasting off white head. Lace left behind is thicker and mostly slippery.
Floral nose with some light pepper, oranges and cream-sicle notes.
Pretty flavorful white brew, with a distinct mineral note. Also more orange, more lite pepper and in general showing a zesty and crisp character and mouth feel.
Not bad, quite easy drinking and gong nicely with salad, nuts and goat cheese. Respectable seasonal from SA

3.78/5 rDev +10.2%
Appearance: high carbonation, 1/4 inch head, hazy, gold in color
Smell: tangerine and peach
Taste: tangerine, apricot, wheat, and peach
Mouthfeel: sweet with light bitterness, light body, high carbonation
Overall: Not usually a fan of Sam Adams witbiers, but I found this one to be very drinkable and better than most. Refreshing and clean, it may be my favorite in this year's spring variety pack.
