As I poured this beer I instantly received a nice scent of citrus and a nice lite colored beer. The first sip was very refreshing and tasteful, with a nice fruity aftertaste. The flaver of this beer stayed with me for a long time before I took my next sip, I look for summer time and hot weather to try this again.

From twelve ounce bottle freshness dated for September 2013.

Light citrusy aroma, pleasing. Pours a hazy yellow with thick bright white head. Head has good retention. Taste is mildly sweet and citrusy, notes of spice that are not overpowering. Nicely carbonated refreshing mouthfeel. Definitely a "pour me another!"

i wasnt sure what to expect from this little white rye. it pours a gold color with a tinge of cloudiness. there is sage in this beer and i comes hard to the nose. the taste is clean, not too bitter and the sage creeps in at the back... and its not too over powering. i think it makes for a really interesting beer. the over all taste is light enough to go into a "summer collection box" (which is where i got it). i do have to give them props for the sage flavor i have had some other herbal beers in the past that made me feel like i was drinking soup. but little white rye has enough sage to be interesting with out the over all beer being off putting. i was pleasantly surprised by this.

Purchased as part of their spring mixed 12 pack.

Brewed with "Samuel Adams two-row pale malt blend", rye, orange peal, coriander and white sage. Hopped with "Tettnang Tettnanger and Saaz Noble Hops"

7 SRM, 5.3% ABV, 18 IBU, 191 kcal/12oz.
Relases a heavy Psssht when uncapped. Brisk carbonation, ~3.5 carbs. Pours out to a clear pale golden, forming a voluminous tall whipped bone white head with great retention and solid thick meringue like lacing. The aroma is really nice...Tons of coriander and orange peel with minimal Belgian phenolics or funk. I don't really pick up on the sage...perhaps a mild herbal spiciness. The mouthfeel is soft, lightly acidic with a medium-light body. The taste is really full of orange peel and coriander and it goes down easy. Nicely balanced with the malts and a very mild bitterness makes this exceptionally drinkable, but because of it's very strong coriander and orange presence it might wear thin after a few. Crisp and clean.

A nice beer. I would buy it again.

As it stands right now, this is my favorite beer. Came home to my parents house after months away and found one in the refrigerator, haven't seen another one since. Wonderfully balanced and the flavor is near perfect. Good for any time of the year, summer especially good.
