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 thatís perfect for the season.

TizzleJizzle (638) - Garland, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a super thin white top that dissipated seconds after pouring. Taste of spice, coriander, citrus, lemon peel, nutmeg, and maybe a slight bit of cinnamon. Overall this isnít a good representation of the witbier style, but I still enjoyed it. Slightly above average brew.

reggiedunlop (3290) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma has a touch of spice and a touch of citrus...very subtle and faint aroma. Flavor has cinnamon and nutmeg...a bit muddled but seasonal spices and not overly bold. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with an orange/cinnamon dry spicy finish.

j12601 (7000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Lemon and citrus peels, grain and wheat. Medium bodied, a touch of sweet lemongrass, a bit of spices. Lemony, almost shandy like. A bit sweet, easy drinking and tasty enough. Better than the regular Samís summer.

JCM3 (5) - Maine, USA - NOV 21, 2012 does not count
pours like a summer wheat ale but has the aroma and taste of the standard Sam Adams Winter Lagar.

From bottle. White head that goes away fast. Very cloudy. Only small amount of the spices used are detectable in aroma. Small bitterness. Goes down well. Small spice taste.

thetmaxx (760) - West Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Poured from the bottle,itís cloudy straw colour. Aroma is of traditional Christmas spice. The base flavour of witbier is there. Finishes sweet and sticky. Will continue to enjoy through the season

Nephilium (1425) - Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Mild aroma with hints of orange and spice. Pours a cloudy straw, with just a dusting of head. This beer is slightly sweet, with just a hint of the spices in the finish. Light on the palate and easy to drink. Itís an interesting change of pace for a winter beer.
