I was a fan of their White Ale a few years back, so when I saw this I had to give it a try. Poured from the bottle into a Nebraska Cornhuskers pub glass. Appearance is a murky, unfiltered orange color with an average white head. Definitely looks like a Blue Moon, as it takes on more of an orange peel look instead of lemon. Smells of wheat & some citrus. Taste is of smooth wheat, with some orange, citrus notes & mild spice. The taste is very consistent from start to finish, with a smooth & creamy mouthfeel throughout.
I am a fan of big, complex beers, but sometimes it is nice to find a beer that is a good, consistent easy drinker that you can have a few of while watching a game. This is what Sam Adams has done here, as this is an above average take on this style. I think they finally found a Spring seasonal they can stick with, unless they decide to make it year round.

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

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.
