Samuel Adams Alpine Spring

Well it’s officially springtime, at least in some places it feel more like than other, that maybe buried in snow and whatnot. But this is a spring seasonal from Samuel Adam, Alpine Spring 550% ABV. Sam Adams calls this an unfiltered larger, and yes I think it looks like what they say it is. Alpine Spring pours a hazy golden yellow color with a bright one finger tight white head that is quit bubbly. I found little light coming through the glass with a nice stream of bubbly carbonation. The aroma is a bit on the citrus side with nice lemon scents with a nice hit of crisp malt. Alpines taste is a nice little lemon and crisp malts like you get in the aroma, the taste is like a lighter wit or a lighter wiezen style beer. There is also a very tiny amount of hops to this but very low on bitterness. The mouth feel is light to medium with a nice zesty feel and some tingle of bubbles on your tongue. Alpine Spring finishes crisp and very refreshing, leaving a little sweetness and lemon behind for a nice aftertaste. I enjoyed this, so I am giving this A. This beer is a great effort from Sam Adams, and I would love to have this over and over again.  Yes I would recommend that every beer drinker go and try this one. It really captures springtime, and Alpine Spring is like a beautiful spring day in a bottle. So please let me know how you like this one down below in the comment section! Cheers!
