Overall a decent beer poured this into my trusty pint glass. Golden color with minimal head tastes all around delicious and very crisp again for me a long winters day this one hits the spot in hoping that spring is around the corner. Sam Adams just keeps making beer i like

Pours effervescent straw color with 3 fingers of pearl white head. Lovely lacing & head retention

S: Grassyness, breadyness & perfumy hops

T: Follows the nose, also a little pear, floral hops & crackery dryness up front. A little melon sneaks in as this warms, a little honey crisp apple, plus grassiness & floral hops. Finishes a little grassy, a little lemon shows up, plus lovely pear & even a little peach

MF: Light/medium body with delicate carbonation

Drinks very easy, nice take on the style; easily one of the best I've had from Sammy in a while

This beer pours a slightly hazy deep straw with a solid head. The aroma offers a huge bang of yeast, as well as black pepper, green apple, pear, and other white wine notes. The flavor is a rich mixture of yeasts, sour dough like flavors, as well as minerally, pear skin, white wine tones. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing, with an abundance of carbonation. Overall I find this to be an excellent beer - refreshing and at the same time wonderfully complex - you can slam it quick or sip it slow and enjoy it both ways.

Citrusy nose, hazy, unfiltered... a nice break from the 946 IPAs out there, and all of the Holiday beers.

Sampling right now on 2/25/14 after bowling (535 series...yay!). Best By: June, 2014 on side of label. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer coolor and poured into a classic pilsner flute glass.

Pours a clear golden yellow in color with small streaming bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Close to a 1-finger white head that lasts a while and some lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of grains with a light floral hint with some spice as well. The taste is about the same with sweet grain at the front followed up with a light fruit/floral finish. Very easy to drink with no bitter or harsh aftertaste. Overall a tasty brew.

A great beer from Sam Adams, how they keep doing it I just don't know. This offering pours out a great thick head with very good lacing, although I really am not a huge fan of cloudy beers. The odor was interesting if not enjoyable mix of fruit and yeast. This was by far the most outstanding mouthfeel I have had to date - incredible smoothness, very crisp and very light. The mix of half-ale half-lager works extremely well - much more so than what I expected. In short, the brew delivers on its promise as I downed a couple on a cold winter's night looking forward to warmer, summer days.
