A-Hazy body burnt-orange in color. The orange blushes giving the color of peach skin. One finger maybe a little more of carbonated misty head. Thin and "poppy" head depletes rather quick. But the body hues keep myself eyeballing the beer like I'm appraising a jewel.
S-Peach. Nectarine. Plum. Juicy. Honey-like sweet malts. Sour grape skins. Lilac. Floral. Perfumes your glass with time.
T-Smooth wheat. Wheat bread. I love the smooth almost flavorless wheat akin to straw and yet it's grainy enough to taste. Restrained orange. Dark dusty grapes/must. Hop is there, swish around you'll find it. Low level bitter hop primarily resides on the finish. And the obvious dominating plum is a refreshing take on witbier.
M-Low-high to medium-low body. Medium carbonation. Low tartness and sweetness like a plum starts the sip. Malty middle. Smooth sizzling medium bitter finish. Medium drying.
O-Nothing out of tune. The body color is the highlight of the beer, the plum addition as well.
Refreshing. A seasonal Sam Adams you'll look forward to every winter.

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.
