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.

Decent but unspectacular white beer, with a sweet, spicy flavor and some orange and spices. Good, but not great.

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.

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.

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.
