Typical of sam adams, this beer looks good on paper, but fails in execution. Yeast profile on this is typically unclean Sam Adams lager profile with a slightly tart, estery taste and finishes a little cloying as if grains of paradise or other spices were used . Flavor is reminiscent of indian coriander - with froot loops like citrus dominating. Malt profile is a little biscuity which is welcome to offset the tartness and citrus profile, but ends up coming off oddly weird, unclean, and unrefreshing. Might be a decent summer beer, why the hell you would release it in January is beyond me.
