Review: Samuel Adams Little White Rye and Blueberry Hill Lager

samuel adams Little White Rye Hi Res 79x300 Review: Samuel Adams Little White Rye and Blueberry Hill LagerTwo new entries into Sam Adams’ “craft brew” lineup. No introduction needed, really. These beers speak pretty well for themselves.

Samuel Adams Little White Rye – A white witbier. Spicy, with clear citrus and coriander notes. That burly, Asian-inflected character builds more and more until that hefty herbal character — namely the sage used in the brew — hits the forefront. Quite a powerhouse, and far from the semi-sweet refresher you might be expecting from a late summer seasonal. (Hence the name, of course.) 5.3% abv. B

Samuel Adams Blueberry Hill Lager – I thought I would hate this. It’s lager with blueberries, of course. Turns out it is surprisingly drinkable, at least for one bottle. The blueberry is strong on the nose and on the finish, but the middle part is a rich and creamy, unfiltered lager with plenty of heft. Refreshing and fun, especially on a hot day, but one is probably plenty. 5.5% abv. B+
