I bought another pick 6 from the grocery store, and Samuel Adams Imperial White is the first brew out of the pack. Wow, this beer delivers a kick in the teeth! It has a strong citrus taste with a alcoholic bite. This is quite a sweet beer and lacks a hoppy bitterness though.

Tonight’s beer is part of Samuel Adams’ Brewmasters Collection. Blackberry Witbier is an underwhelming brew in my opinion. It reminds me of Abita’s Purple Haze but with less flavor.

Pairing my Sam Adams Winter Lager with my frosty Vikings mug as I prepare to watch Monday Night Football. Go Falcons! I’m a Vikes fan, but an Atlanta local, so I’m rooting for the home team.
‘Tis the Season! I try to focus on the seasonal products put out in order to get a variety throughout the year. I’m looking forward to trying the other Winter or Holiday selections soon!
