Late rating. 12 ounce single bottle from Sam Adams Winter variety pack. Pours a light gold color with a small white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and spices. Taste is citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices. Too many spices in this beer - it seems like they tried way too hard with this. You canít drink more than one of these in a row - the spices are overwhelming.

THOUGHTS: Fine wit. I just donít seem to get the Christmas part of it. Would make more sense if it was double wit. In its current form it would be a better summer beer. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a murky, medium to dark, milky yellow with orange lurking around the edges and an average, white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had moderate wheat; moderate yeast; hints of spices and some citrus fruit. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet and lightly acidic with an average duration. There was wheat, citrus, both lemon and orange, and hints of spices. The light to medium body was sort of creamy and then dry with fairly fizzy carbonation and a slightly astringent finish.

Bottles. I really like white beers, and this was no exception. Malty, bready, full of hops and orange - taste is sweet and refreshing as well. Pretty good beer, I really liked it. Probably will be getting more of this come Christmas time.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Pours with a hazy yellow hued body with a lasting and retentive tan head. Aromas are not quite as estery as you would expect a wit to be. Quite malty with lots of spices. Flavor is similar with distinct notes of each individual spice. A rich bready and crackery malt character. Fuller carbonation, off-dry.

flatmatt (1162) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours golden, moderately hazy, with a white head. Citrus and coriander aroma. Flavor seems very different from the aroma, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove spices, some wheat, with pear hints. Not a lot of wheatiness, but Iím actually a bit surprised at this. Itís a very nice light spiced beer.

12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of light spices, a little wheat, hints of hops, and light malts. Flavor the same, with everything pretty light. Light to average texture. Not bad but not great.
