BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams)
Massachusetts, United States
samueladams.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Stirring from the haze of winter, this refreshing unfiltered White Ale awakens its smooth wheat with the bright snap of spring spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.

Look - cloudy tannish golden color with a slight head and skimming
Smell - wheat, spices with some of that slight banana/clove yeast scent
taste - spiced up wheat gone bad. I can taste all the things I mentioned in one way or another as the scents but it's just kind of funky and I'm really not a fan
feel - medium body and carbonation
Overall - I'm actually going to dump this beer, not good.
