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

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: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Hazy light peach. Two finger head settles to a film that never leaves. Nice lacing.

S - Tangerine and coriander. Plum comes through after sitting a few minutes.

T - Malts, citrus, and coriander blend blissfully. Finishes with light hops.

M - Medium

O - Delicious and very refreshing! If you find one, grab it. Excellent session brew. Cheers!

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Cloudy haze of a light golden hue, some orange tinge

Smell: Nice, crisp, citrusy aroma. quite nice

Taste: At first extremely refreshing, hints of citrus, fruity. Then it seems a bit stale and sour like oranje juice thats about to spoil. Finally a very unpleasant musty alcoholic taste is left in my mouth. That is all I can think about after I take a sip

Mouthfeel: inadequate, a bit too watery

Overall: Sub par, borderline poor. Won't be drinking this brew ever again.

Would recommend to a woman or someone who doesn't enjoy darker beers.
