Name – Samuel Adams Imperial White
Country – United States
Type – Witbier
Appearance – Poured a hazy amber color with a small white head that disappeared quickly.
Smell – Small malt smells with hints of yeast and banana.
Taste – Very much with an alcohol bite to it. Some yeasty taste to it but can’t get past the malty alcohol burn.
I’ve been wanting to try this one since the announcement of them but was left really disappointed. I guess with the word imperial in the name I should have expected the alcohol taste to it but it just caught me off guard. While I do like some beers like that I just don’t expect it from a white ale.
Overall Grade – D
