P: Milky pale golden body with a frothy white cap an inch tall. Micro bubble lacing creating cascading stairs.
S: Aroma is similar to a salon giving permanents. Moldy wheat, honey, coriander, pilsner malt, basement yeast and clove.
T/M: Taste us similar to the aroma with a distinct metallic taste and lots of earthy flavors. Old dusty furniture and attic/basement ambience. Easy drinkability that would make a nice session that doesn't have cloying yeast presence. Bubbly carbonated moderate feel that finishes semi dry with a timid sting of spiced bananas.
O: I can't get the image of an old lady salon out of my head when drinking this beer. Not a winning seasonal but a decent offering to session. I wanted to like this but it's too safe and lacks creativity.

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.
