Poured from bottle into a snifter
Appearance – The beer has a hazy nice orange color with a thin white head. The head fades rather fast to leave only a small amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is of sweet bread and some nice orange citrus. There are good aromas of yeast as well as a nice boozy aroma which meld quite well with the rest of the aromas.
Taste – The taste starts out big and bready. There is a nice sweetness upfront which is mainly of orange citrus in nature. As the taste advances the citrus sweetness in enhanced with the bready flavor lightening a bit. The yeast flavor starts to build more toward the middle with some flavor of banana accompanying it. These flavors sweeten even more as the taste advances to the end where they are meet with an alcohol flavor that gives a slight burning/warming flavor on the mouth.
Mouthfeel – The body of this beer is on the creamier side with a carbonation level that is also on the higher side. The thick body suits the bready flavors well, while the carbonation complements the sweeter flavors well, with neither the body nor the carbonation really taking away from the beer.
Overall –While on the sweeter side, this is a nice flavorful imperial white. It is easy to drink and is at a good price. Sam does a wonderful job once again ad I would recommend this brew!!

Samuel Adams Imperial White - 10.3% ABV. Mead like. Heavy on the honey and wheat. Bold crisp alcohol note. Pungent fruit (plums and apples) and coriander notes. Admittedly not my forte' but it does invoke that throwback Medieval style robust fruit and wheat beer. Very strong. Bold. Thick. Pretty good. 3.5 out of 5.
