Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, hoppy and malty. Big winter spices on the nose and flavor. Easy finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz poured into a large ommegang stemmed glass, pours a bright orange, head is medium bodies and retains a good while, aroma is xmas spices everywhere, orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, and the like, christmans in a glass somewhat, but this is not a thick and lavish brew, as this white alley is quite friendly on the pallate and allows for an easy drinking experience. The wheat flare is rather boring, not really filering off from a standard version of any type, but the magic here lies within the hops meld in with the spices and almost forifies drinking a spiced tea while watching the holidays slip by you. Fun, fresh, and delightful, this beer adds the direct xmas flare to the mix pack and cushions one with spices galore.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a dark gold color with a small white head. The nose smells like a holiday spiced Wit. Light and crisp on the palate with light wheat notes, a hint of cinnamon, and orange. The winter season just doesn’t scream "holiday wit" to me. Sam, what’s up with the weak winter offering???

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass. Appearance is a hazy orange-tinted golden color with a moderate white head. Aroma is funky malts, orange, banana, and some light spices. Taste is a weird mix of holiday spices and the wheat-y malt. Super crisp feel. This a really strange beer, and not necessarily in a good way.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden colored beer that has a nice citrus aroma. Lacks any real spiced flavors but tastes good anyway. Wheat body with orange hints makes it taste very similar to their summer ale.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer sits as an opaque dark golden color in the glass, but, unfortunately, the medium white head fades fairly quickly. The aroma has a mixture of strong citrus (lemons and oranges) with an undercurrent of cinnamon peeking out, and the taste is an interesting mixture: there is an undeniable sweetness as soon as the liquid hits your tongue followed by a slightly umami flavor containing a hint of sourness. However, the mouthfeel’s mixture of a full body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish actually makes the taste really appealing, enhancing the robus tail end instead of the sweet initial flavor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Very spicy, nutmeg, cinnamon, wheat aromas. Again, very spicy in flavor with cinnamon and nutmeg. Not bad, but I’m not really digging the spices in this beer much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like a typical wheat beer. Pours hazy orange with a minimal white head. Refreshing wheat flavors with a hint of citrus.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This appears to be a basic, run of the mill witbier from it’s appearance, aroma, and taste. It has nice, clean aromas of orange peel and spices, although I don’t detect the cinnamon or nutmeg. It is certainly refreshing and thirst quenching, but there isn’t anything that sets it apart from other witbiers.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head with some lacing. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, winter spices, orange peel, And some yeast. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a light-medium finish wih a watery mouthfeel and a slighty dry, mostly sweet, short finish. Overall, a slighty above average witbier that might be a tad too sweet and over spiced.
