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.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2012
The aroma is unimpressive with adjunct malt, dish water, and a hint of spice and yeast. The appearance is hazy gold with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall not bad and certainly drinkable but feels like just another macro.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2012
An unfiltered golden ale with a white head. It's an 'normal' white ale until the spices give it a solid boost. A warmer on a cool afternoon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oscbert (1006) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 20, 2012
~Wheaty aroma with cinnamon, nutmeg and some citrusy notes. Some white pepper like spice in there as well and some banana. ~Pours a very hazy orange color with white creamy head that disappears. ~Bready citrusy spicy nutmeg flavor. Light citrus. A bit o the picy end with the nutmeg. ~light medium bodied, with med high CO2, lingering spice finish. ~ Enjoyable brew. I could drink a few of these. I like what the brewer was trying to do with Xmas spices, but think that the spice can be toned down a bit so we get some of the wonderful yeasty flavors.

Bottle from SAMs. Cloudy yellow orange with foamy webby white head and lace. Nose is fairly dry and lightly spicy, some orange peel, light lemon. Flavor shows some cereal like malty flavors upfront, with light spice and a citrusy slick finish. Solid from Sammy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

matty (174) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy straw color with a white head. No lacing. Slight sour aroma with some yeast. Thin body, smooth flavor of some wheat and spices, clean finish. Nothing to get excited about, but it’s not bad.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light ginger notes with some coriander notes also perceptible. Taste is a mix between some light notes of wheat with some coriander and ginger notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but really nothing to write home about either.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Citrus and spice aromas with a mixture of bread. Hazy yellow orange with a frothy white head. Balanced with sweet and spice notes. Crisp and refreshing.

pottygok (433) - Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Aroma: Light cereal notes with hints of doughiness. Spiciness throughout. Appearance: Cloudy blonde with rich, white head. Taste: Light bitterness with hints of spicy sweetness at the edges, but all very faint. Palate: Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, minimal finish. Overall: Very weak and watery beer. Extremely disappointing.

Westmeister (1654) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a white head. Yeasty aroma with some fruity esters. Tastes has spice and some citurs. Mouthfeel is thicker than one would expect for style. Decent.
