Samuel Adams "White Lantern"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
Witbier (ABV 5.5%) (IBU 10)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a hazy golden orange with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that receded slowly, down to a medium cap which lasted throughout and produced fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, light floral hops and a moldy yeast with notes of citrus (orange peel and tangerine), banana and coriander.

The taste was lightly sweet and rather yeasty with a touch of tangerine from the beginning, becoming a tad spicy with a hint of banana and a mild citrus peel bitterness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, with a spicy yeast taste fading quickly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a somewhat mild carbonation.

Overall this brew was OK in taste and drinkability, but nothing overly special...
