Poured from the 12 ounce bottle into a Hefeweizen glass. poor is a beautiful opaque golden orange color obviously unfiltered. Smell is very rich of spices citrus slight coriander. the order is someone intoxicating but I believe it is a false pretense to the actual flavor of the beer. Flavor is of sweetness and bitterness at roughly the same time definite taste of coriander right at the beginning it fades away into a gravelly carbonated finish. not feel as I said it was very carbonated and it goes down slightly gravelly. All in all it is an average beer. Not Sam Adams' best.

12oz served in an Allagash cervoise

A - Pours golden brass with a slight haze with a stark white whipped head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Spiced aroma, cloves, coriander, pepper, sweet citrus, candy sweet malt, wheat husks.

T - Chalky wheat, soft orange, white pepper, light honey sweetness, not as sweet as the nose. The clove and coriander are more subdued as well. A tad watery but has a refreshing lemon note on the finish.

M - Full lush feel, carbonation makes for a light smooth body.

Tasty wit here. It's not groundbreaking but is smooth and goes down very easy and is pretty good all around. It is a tad watery but still good.

Just as the label says, spices and citrus peel with an excellent aftertaste. One of my all time favorites. I thoroughly enjoyed it. How long do these comments have to be before the bros at beer advocate will accept it??? I'm not the best taste analyzer so have mercy on me ba!

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger off-white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Sweet, slightly spicy aroma with a balance of zesty, peppery coriander, citrus fruit, banana and bready yeast. The yeast and banana notes stand out but are complimented by the grains and citrus. After it warms, hints of clementine, tangerine and grapefruit come to the forefront.

Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a prominent wheat/bready yeast flavor that overpowers the peppery spice and citrus sweetness. Slightly zesty with coriander, ginger and white pepper notes followed by hints of blood orange, tangerine and grapefruit but the bread and banana flavors are too strong for my liking, making it a bit one dimensional. Very easy to drink but could use more spice and citrus flavor.

Honestly thought the flavor was the least spectacular part about this beer. That and it was over 2 months past the "best taste" date.
