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.

This is a beer that does precisely what it says on the bottle. It’s a Belgian White that uses Christmasey spices in addition to the usual orange. Looks great, a hazy yellow orange with a small head on top. The aroma is super bland but not offensive at least. Little bits of nutmeg and citrus along with soft yeasty smells. Nice flavor, sweet, citrus, and cinnamon mesh together well. Overly sticky mouthfeel that somehow manages to have too much carbonation.

Hazy Golden. It’s a Witbier and it tastes like a Witbier, which isn’t a complement in my book. It has that ’off’ vegetable undertone that I’ve come to expect in a Wit. It also has the requisite orange hints, with an added note of cinnamon and nutmeg, hence the White ’Christmas’. Not for me, but it may be pretty good if you like Belgian Whites...

Pours a lovely amber with a mottled, frothy, white head and steady streams of rising bubbles. Smells like holiday baking with notes of cinnamon, clove, and citrus. Taste is sweet and pleasant although unremarkable. Medium body, soft carbonation, spice finish. Nice beer.

Bottle at a party. Pretty decent for a wit. Lots of spice and flavor. I like it better than some.

Hazy honey brown with a fizzy small white head. Smells simple.. of Belgian yeast and citrus. Tastes like Christmas... cinnamon, nutmeg.. a warm simple spicy. I like it.

Smooth, distinct spice kick, light malt and citrus. The finish tails off nicely, not too thin. Very nice Winter choice.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 12oz. Bottle from winter mix 12 pack. Hazy gold pour with white head. Nice thick mouth feel being unfiltered. Very spicy both smelling and tasting. Taste brings out the Orange more than scent. Crisp and delicious.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured deep golden with a nice white head. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon and malts. Taste of spice and wheat. Not bad and well balanced but maybe a bit bland.

Bottle from the winter sampler box. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange copper coler thats bright and has a shiny sparkling head. Smells of spices and nutmeg . A little too sweet for me. Kind of tastes artificial but I see what they were trying to go for

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.
