From a six-pack, poured from bottle into a pint glass.
Have had this paired with beef nachos, sausage pizza, and (of all things) filet mignon. It performed well with all.
A - Pours an awesome hazy gold liquid with a sticky, thick, pure white head. Very impressive.
S - Kind of like a weak wheat beer; some citrus, but not much. Not a turn-off, but not a turn-on either.
T - Nice and crisp. Pretty balanced, but the hops tip the scales a bit, some floral hints hit my taste buds.
M - Good carbonation; not too much, just right. Almost no aftertaste and what little remains is pleasant.
Summary - This was surprisingly tasty. I liked the wheat-like lightness of it combined with a little hop bite at the beginning. Definitely one of my favorites from Sam Adams. Will look forward to this seasonal.
