Pours a hazy orange tinted deep gold with a bright white lingering pillowy head. Aroma is a bit spicy and peppery with some lemon-orange notes coming through. Taste is where this one falters. There is a bit of coriander and citrus that is traditional with the style. However after that initial touch the beer falls flat. In fact it seems more like a Hefeweizen than does their Hefeweizen. Overall this was just kind of boring. Not offensive in anyway, but just blah. Mouthfeel was OK with a decent amount of carbonation. Drinkability is low because well its just kinda dull and boring. I could drink a few of these, but I really dont want to. Sammy can be very hit or miss. The Black Lager was fantastic, but the White Ale just seems to go through the motions of being a Wit bier. Oh well at least I didnt plunk down a bunch of cash for it.
