Samuel Adams White Lantern

The beers of Samuel Adams are from the Boston Beer Company of Boston, Massachusetts. This 5.5% ABV Belgian-style white ale is brewed with orange and tangerine peel, coriander and Grains of Paradise. The beer pours a hazy dark golden and orange in color. There is nearly an inch of white foam that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is spices, the coriander upfront and trading nicely off the tangerine, with some toasted wheat underneath. The taste is a nice toasted wheat, just a touch nutty, with the spices, tangerine first and then coriander being the most evident. It is nicely carbonated, pleasantly stinging the mouth, with a medium body that is just right. If you like white ales, this one is worth a try.
