Samuel Adams White Lantern
LOOK: Hazy gold color with a soapy head that leaves some lace on the glass. Looks the part of a good Belgian wheat.
SMELL: Oranges and wheat are heavy in the aroma. Some of this fruity aroma could come from the addition of tangerine to the mix. Smells like a wit that has been topped with orange chunks and served to you at a tiki bar or trendy restaurant.
TASTE: Fruity wheat beer, with the tangerine and orange peel used in brewing actually meld together to an apricot like flavor. Wheat and a faint hint of peppery spice on the back end from the coriander. Refreshing, with low bitterness and remains fairly enjoyable.
FEEL: Medium bodied, ultra smooth with a medium level of carbonation. Some of the fruit and spice flavors stick with you.
OVERALL: Not a bad beer here, the flavors are fresh and not artificial tasting. I normally don't like to draw comparisons to other beers in reviews but the flavor here is very similar to Magic Hat #9. A crafty fruit beer with a wheat base. This is a gateway beer to lead the masses to craft. Even as a seasoned beer drinker, I have to say this isn't too shabby.
