Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head and served with an orange slice. Fruity citric aroma with light sweetness. The flavor has citrus, wheat, coriander, and orangey fruity sweetness. Nice.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Draft at Asheville brewing. Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Slight hint of orange on the nose and on the tongue. Finish had a slightly astringent quality. Odd choice for a Christmas ale.

beersearcher (2334) - Glendale, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a light orange. Very light floral aroma. First hit is bread. Followed by a medium strong dose of apricot. A little hop bitterness sneaks in there as well.

tastybeer (1716) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle, courtesy my GF. Pours slightly hazy white/yellow with a decent white head. Flavor is lightly sweet with a typical wheat malt bill and some spices in there. Not much of a Christmas theme going. Big butter/diacetyl/biscuit action going on as well.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
651mL courtesy of MsBillingslea. Pour is a hazy bright straw with speckled white bubbles. No head formation. Actually looks like melted butter. Aroma at first is a tad clovey and rich like an Abbey Tripel, but quickly moves to melted butter in the aroma! Taste has a massive diacetyl element, watery, buttery all over the palate, buttered biscuit taste. 100% diacetyl bomb. Very faint straw and biscuit freshness tries to save this beer from imminent self-destruction.

bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2010
On draught at the brewery, it pours a hazy Sourwood Honey into the glass, with a thin fuzzy head that leaves ring lace. The nose is of some yeast and wheat, not too complex. Some pepper, wheat and paper notes, and a hint of zest and citrus. The finish is peppery paper and contains a light body with a seltzery mouthfeel, little substance to the body. The pepper is the only thing I could possibly associate with a spice for the holidays. Otherwise, a below-average American Wheat.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2010
I expected there to be some type of Christmas spice in this one, but I couldn’t find anything. Clear color, very much like a light beer. Not a lot of flavor and nothing really to note. Very bland.

Yellow pour with light white head and lace. Aroma of coriander, paper. Coriander, paper, pepper, and a light bitter. Thin and fizzy.
