COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As crisp as the first snowfall of the year, this unfiltered white ale is blended with holiday spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, & orange peel. The familiar citrus and wheat characters of the ale are complimented by the warmth of the spices for a festive brew that’s perfect for the season.

Not a big fan of this one. A white beer that, in my opinion, was spoiled by the added spices which were ok (at best) at first, but less and less tolerable as the drinking continued. I won’t seek out this one again.

Very smooth no strong after taste or strong flavors. Spices in nose and very warming.

Metalchopz (2121) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
Part of their Winter Favorites 12-pack for winter 2013. Pours a hazy golden-yellow colour (gets cloudier at last pour). The warm cap has a decent retention and creamy lace. Wheat malts with the orange notes and light spices. Wet mouthfeel with a little stickiness. The cinnamon is a little more present in the taste, with the orangy wheatness. Refreshing spiced white beer, but nothing too crazy.

weihenweizen (1507) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, best by April 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Pours deep golden with small white head which dissapates quickly. Nice spice (mostly nutmeg aroma), medium carbonation, medium body, and some small bubble lacing. Taste is soft wheat, cinnamon, some nutmeg, and a hint of orange peel. I prefer the aroma way better than the taste.

Orange pour with a small white ring. Orange, nutmeg, cinnamon in the nose. Tastes like a super spiced wit. Pretty decent.

Cavie (3672) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, hoppy and malty. Big winter spices on the nose and flavor. Easy finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz poured into a large ommegang stemmed glass, pours a bright orange, head is medium bodies and retains a good while, aroma is xmas spices everywhere, orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, and the like, christmans in a glass somewhat, but this is not a thick and lavish brew, as this white alley is quite friendly on the pallate and allows for an easy drinking experience. The wheat flare is rather boring, not really filering off from a standard version of any type, but the magic here lies within the hops meld in with the spices and almost forifies drinking a spiced tea while watching the holidays slip by you. Fun, fresh, and delightful, this beer adds the direct xmas flare to the mix pack and cushions one with spices galore.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a dark gold color with a small white head. The nose smells like a holiday spiced Wit. Light and crisp on the palate with light wheat notes, a hint of cinnamon, and orange. The winter season just doesn’t scream "holiday wit" to me. Sam, what’s up with the weak winter offering???

marv3mania (161) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass. Appearance is a hazy orange-tinted golden color with a moderate white head. Aroma is funky malts, orange, banana, and some light spices. Taste is a weird mix of holiday spices and the wheat-y malt. Super crisp feel. This a really strange beer, and not necessarily in a good way.

Golden colored beer that has a nice citrus aroma. Lacks any real spiced flavors but tastes good anyway. Wheat body with orange hints makes it taste very similar to their summer ale.
