Samuel Adams "White Christmas"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
Witbier (ABV 5.8%) (IBU 8)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]


Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a medium golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fluffy head that quickly diminished, down to a very thin film and not so good runny lacing.

The aroma was of a light straw malt and a doughy horse blanket yeast with notes of citrus (orange), coriander, nutmeg and cinnamon.

The taste was lightly sweet and rather yeasty with a pronounced citrus note throughout, with the finish having a slight spiciness at the very end. The flavor lingered for an average time following the swallow, with a mild spicy yeast taste fading slowly from the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just above light in body with a mildly dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a decent enough brew that did posses a good drinkability, but was really nothing overly special as Witbier's go...
