Boston Beer Company Samuel Adams White Christmas – Witbier at 5.8% ABV

Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams) Samuel Adams White Christmas Witbier at 5.8% ABV ($2.50 at NLC Kelsey Drive, 355ml, best before 1-Mar-2015)

Pours hazy pale gold with a short, short-lived white head, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is muted wheat, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange peel. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet and mild bitter. (5/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter orange peel finish. (3/5)

Oh, look, a witbier for people who don’t like witbiers and/or can’t spell witbier. Pretty bland, although there is a little bit of a lingering orange peel bitterness that’s not bad, and the moderately high ABV is fairly well integrated. It’d do in a pinch. (12/20)

5.5/10 #ryansbooze
