This is a dark golden colored witbier with a very thin white head and an abundance of carbonation. The scent is not at all typical of a Belgian beer and is overwhelmingly of sage, something I can’t say I’ve ever smelled this strongly in any beer. Sage is also very strong in the taste along with rye, coriander, clove, pepper, and light hints of fruit. It has a somewhat dry finish and leaves a mildly spicy taste in the mouth. This is a very odd beer, not at all like Sam Adam’s more classic witbier, White Lantern. In fact it is hardly recognizable as a Belgian beer, let alone a witbier at all. This beer makes me feel like I am drinking a deli sandwich, which I strangely kind of dig. This would definitely not be for everyone, and I wouldn’t want to drink it all the time, but for me it’s kind of interesting and I applaud Sam Adam’s creativity here.
