This is definitely a Belgian wit. Compared to some others this version from SA is real heavy on the orange-especially the peel. Spicy-lots of coriander. Plenty of malt body but it is overshadowed by the heavy dose of orange peel and coriander. Carbonation is appropriately medium/high. An ok wit-would prefer it a little more naked.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Semi cloudy orange. Lots of bubbling, head died immediately.
S: Lemon/orange coriander, wheat malt. Lemon dominates.
T: Lots of lemon citrus flavors. A bit too much, tastes artificial. Some belgian sugar, white crackers, a bit of corriander spice. (Upon reading its tangerine not lemon). Too fruity, not nuanced enough. Minimal wheat presence. Grains of paradise add a nice sweetness. Reminds me a lot of sam summer. Not enough yeast presence.
M: Super high carbonation, a bit syrupy, too sweet to be session-able.
O: Too fruity for me, lacks balance. More of a summer ale. Would be better with cook out food, to sweet on its own, at-least it doesn't lack flavor. Middle of the pack from Sam Adams, at best.

Poured into a pint glass.
A: Hazy golden yellow with two-finger, white, fizzy head that lasted a couple minutes. Not much lacing.
S: Wheat and tart smell.
T: Light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Bubble gum, wheat, a hint of spice.
M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Smooth.
O: Pretty good Witbier, but nothing too special. Above average.
