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.

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.

Bottle. Smells mildly of spice, opens up some in the glass. Pours light orange, a little cloudy. Almost no head. Tastes of orange and spice. Good flavor, would definitely get again.

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.
