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.

Scipio (806) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a bright and hazy yellow with a white head that evaporates quickly. Aroma contains cinnamon, orange, lemon, banana, and spice. Quite pleasing. The taste is generally what I was expecting from the aroma. The lemon and orange citrus come out most along with the cinnamon. Cinnamon in the aftertaste, but this does not last long at all. Light in body, with a fizzy texture. This one is alright I suppose but nothing approaching special. However, you could easily do worse.

tnkw01 (1677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle. Reminds me of a summer shandy with cinnamon and nutmeg. Cloudy, decent head that disappears quickly.

magsinva (1073) - Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from state line - pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma has the orange and nutmeg, but I’m not getting a ton of cinnamon. Leans sweet and dry. Overall, solid, but I wished they’d punched up the spices more to give it more complexity and interest.

DiarmaidBHK (4021) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from state line liquors. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Not a lot on the nose except a faint orange. I’m getting the orange peel but not much if the nutmeg or cinnamon. Lingers a bit of orange. Typical wit.

jhamp9 (1521) - Corinth, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Nice looking cloudy golden orange with a dense white head. Citrus and nutmeg in the aroma. Taste is subtle spice and a little citrus, but pretty faint. Soft carbonation. Easy to drink.

mcox90 (1818) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2012
12 oz bottle, new addition to the Holiday 12 pack. Poura a light gold with a 1 finger white head. Wheat aroma with a bit of orange and a bit of spice. Flavor follows the aroma. Thin bodied and bubbly in the mouth.

TizzleJizzle (760) - 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 isn’t a good representation of the witbier style, but I still enjoyed it. Slightly above average brew.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Poured a lighter orange color with a big white head. Aroma was citrus, bread and banana. Flavor was bubblegum, clovers, cives, and pepper. Some citrus in the finish. Medium body. Something missing with this beer. Average at best.

travita (4715) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Clear look, bigger foamy white head, and golden in color. The smell is wheat, very spiced, heavy and artificial like, and yeast. The taste is sweet, si heavily spiced to the point of icky, and sticky.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours an average orange witha thick white head. Aroma is vegetable leftovers doused in nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is rotten-water melon with weak Christmas spices. Average mouthfeel. Shovel this one to the curb.
