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 thats perfect for the season.

This spiced unfiltered white ale is generally drinkable but leaves something to be desired. Everything is about the spices, which are not overpowering, but are the center of the aroma and taste, and seem to outweigh the malt and what bittering hops there are. As an unfiltered beer, its appearance is cloudy, with a rather unappealing dirty yellow color. This is an unassuming beer, providing nothing in the way of enjoyment, but little unpleasantness either.

Cloudy yellow color , medium white head. Wheat , orange and spices in aroma. Wheat malt and cinnamon dominates in sweet taste. Decent seasonal.

Bottle pour. Cloudy golden with small white head. Wheat, orange, and spices aroma. Medium body. Taste is similar to the aroma, but you are able to taste the cinnamon more than you can smell it.

Bottle. Smells decent but average in all ways. Tastes kinda generic. Yes it is Christmas style. Not bad but not great.

Pours a light golden color with a nice white head. Spice aroma with a bit of toasted malts. Flavor matches.

Source: Winter Sampler. 12 oz bottle poured into a Samuel Adams glass Appearance: The pour is a cloudy gold-orange, with a off-white head that disappears quickly Aroma: Wheat, citrus orange and lemon, spices like cinnamon, nutmeg & clove Flavor: Much like the aroma, lots of cinnamon & nutmeg you get the citrus of lemon/orange ends with wheat and the spices linger. Palate: The body is light-medium, good carbonation, the spices seem to linger not a clean finish. Overall Impression: Not awful, the aroma is very enjoyable very Christmas like. The same spices that help the aroma seems to over power the flavor a bit. I could enjoy 1 or 2 on a cold night. Worth a try!

12oz bottle - Pretty much the throw-away/drain-pour of the Winter Variety 12-pack, successfully replacing the Cranberry Lambic as perhaps SAs worst beer. No, I dont think it deserves that label, but this was pretty bad. Wet leaves/woody hop in the aroma, some orange, light ginger/citrus too. Flavor had a bit of spicy character, crackery but after it gets to room temp it really reminds me of vomit or that aftertaste in the mouth after upchucking. No thanks.
