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.

Nice Wit beer. A little cinnamon, nutmeg and orange flavor but not overpowering. Crisp carbonation. Not bad.

jcos (1643) - Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on 12/10/2013.

Appearance: Pours an opaque yellow with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of light wheat, nutmeg, orange.
Taste: Wheat, lemon, light cinnamon and nutmeg, faint orange.
Palate:Light body, lingering orange peel on the aftertaste.

Summary: This beer sets out to meet it’s goal. I would have preferred more of a wheaty flavor to it.

Decent, but not the best out of the full selection of Samuel Adams Winter Seasonals.

paintedmaple (499) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Good rendition of a Wit with the addition of cinnamon and nutmeg. Rather sweetly spicy, however finishes with a nice bite of sourness that was unexpected and much appreciated. Good stuff.

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours a hazy golden color with minimal head. Abundant orange citrus aroma with holiday spice notes as well ( cinnamon and nutmeg). Very sweet wheat beer that us extremely approachable and the spices actually blend well with the citrus flavor. A very good light seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

annunz123 (918) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Decent but unspectacular white beer, with a sweet, spicy flavor and some orange and spices. Good, but not great.

BroSpud (1810) - , Massachusetts, USA - DEC 8, 2013
12oz bottle. Doesn’t work, wrong beer for the holidays unless you celebrate mid-summer. This light bodied wheat ale does not support itself to the added spices. Whole thing comes off as bland and forgettable.

Bebum (434) - - DEC 8, 2013
Deep citrine, cloudy. Not much aroma, if any. Medium body, refreshing but not quite crisp mouthfeel, somewhat missing in balance and flavor intensity and complexity. Predominantly sweet, minimal bitterness, acidity prevents it from being cloying. Rather boring beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poobah (311) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Golden with a thick, quickly-fading head and a yeasty nose. Easy entry with a mildly-carbonated mouthfeel, followed by honey and orange peel on the finish.

Beerathon (1460) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2013
I find this very enjoyable for what it is supposed to be- a wheat beer that reminds you of the holiday season/winter. Nice tingly feeling on the tongue from carbonation, warming spices, integrity of the base wheat is still there. Good.
