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 thatís perfect for the season.

Really not many redeemable qualities about this beer. Weak aroma and a weird taste. Just pass.

Cloudy orange pour some white head. Aroma of yeast, orange, nutmeg. Nutmeg bomb of flavor. Slick mouthfeel like syrup. Good nutmeg delivery device for people that donít like eggnog.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of March 2014. The pour is golden yellow with a slight fog and fizzy white head that settles down. The aroma is rather muted but I do pick up pale malts, citrus, spice, and a slight hop note. The body is light to medium. The taste does have the typical wit character with a slight citrus bite.

ExpendableHero (728) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Light amber colored beer with a thin, white head. Aromas of coriander peel and cinnamon. Tastes of cinnamon, some caramel, and some citrus zest. Also had an artificial nutmeg flavor that I do not care much for. Sweet, citrus finish. Light bodied, easy to drink, but not very memorable.

12oz bottle. This is a pretty good seasonal brew. Itís slightly spiced in flavor. You can really taste the nutmeg which I really enjoy as it is one of my favorite flavors. Also a slightly citrus finish.

tillmac62 (135) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours golden with a nice frothy head that lingers and laces well. Nose is of spice, mostly nutmeg. Light body with good carbonation. The taste is subtle, but of spice, with it being more nutmeg than anything else. Finishes cleanly with a slight spiciness that lingers. A solid non-complex beer, but not outstanding. It needs more flavor, be it from more spice or dark malt.

kdm1984 (586) - Missouri, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Very plain smell - just a hint of spices. Cloudy appearance to show itís unfiltered. Flavor is mostly spice as well. Would not guess it as being a wit on smell and taste alone - seems more like a generic spice beer. Whereís the orange peel, citrus, and wheat they talk about on the label? Drinkable, but not very memorable at all, and not even stylistically fitting.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a thin white head. Wheat, orange, coriander and spice aroma and flavors. Light body and an orange tart finish.

Still not my favorite style of beer, but this offering isnít all that bad of a witbier. Sam Adamsí White Christmas poured a cloudy dark straw color with a fluffy and nicely lacing white head. The nose featured some banana, clove, wheat and grass. The mouthfeel and body was fairly smooth and velvety. I tasted some banana, light clove and a hint of nutmeg in the flavors. There was mostly wheat and dry yeast in the finish, along with some smooth fruity flavors.
