Cloudy, straw colored, a bit amber
Pure white foamy head. Nice small bubbles, tightly packed head that lingers well for a bargain beer.
Oranges? It smells like new belgium’s Trippel.
VERY mild in flavor. But, so pleasant. A small taste of hops. Not sweet at all. A perfect beer for having six on a hot day. I’d like to find more to describe it, but it’s so simple. Very mildly bitter, soft in flavor all over.
Remarkable. Likely because it’s unfiltered… but it lingers, it feels thick like Ovila Abbey Saisson. That said, the bitterness doesn’t grow. It just pleasantly fades.
Drank two 12 ounce bottles in a tulip glass
There are two things I usually don’t prefer in beer… Yellow, and Cheap. This beer is both, but it does them so well it makes me want to change my mind.
This beer tastes like the perfect drink after mowing the lawn. It’s very similar to New Belgium’s Trippel, but a bit more watery, and much less alcohol.
It’s one of the best bargain beers I’ve had in several months.

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.
