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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and citrus. Reminds me of Christmas morning. Taste is loaded with winter spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and a nice bitter citrus rind. Light bodied. Good carbonation. My favorite Sam Adams thus far.

nittanytide (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Poured cloudy gold, with a thin, white head. Aroma is floral and citrus. Taste is orange peel and dry hops. I got a little vanilla in on the tip of the tongue, which was interesting.

This smells like a pretty standard lager, but tastes like a widely available witbier - think a notch above Blue Moon, but below Hoegarden.

Fruity - cranberry. Kölsch tasting ale. Clean and crisp. Nothing special but a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy ellow with white head. Spicey orange aroma. Similar taste. Cinnamon jmps out at you. Not something for everyday, but I was pleasantly surprised. Was eating fresh ground peanut butter at the time, and the cinnamon made the pairing.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Cloudy yellow. This smells like a pumpkin ale, big cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes like a lighter version of a pumpkin ale as well, lighter in body with just a little bit of tart finish from the wheat. I wanted to not like this beer, but actually was enjoyable for what it is....

Aurelius (4655) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Almost clear gold, medium white head, standard Sam label and bottle. Musty, cinnamon aroma. Light spice, some mineral flavors, lightly bittered, a little sweet, light diacetyl. Medium body. Leftover from the office Christmas party.
