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.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a nice cinnamon and nutmeg combo. Flavor is also spice heavy with some bitterness toward the end. Kinda watery mouthfeel and its a bit thin all around. The spice is nice but takes away anything the base wit beer has to offer. If you like spices in your beer then this is for you.

Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma is of cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus and wheat. Taste is the same. Nice carbonation.

Bottle; poured a ruddy, murky dark gold color with an off white head. Aroma of spices, orange, yeast and wheat. A bit medicinal at times, and a tad heavy on nutmeg; but a decent brew that matches the season well.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 12oz bottle into pint glass. Hazy gold color with orange-ish hue and thin white head. Aroma is whit sweetness and spices, mostly cinnamon and some nutmeg. Wheat flavor and spices went together well for me. Light body, easy holiday drinking. Not bad.

This was okay. The sweetness of a wit with the spices of a wit. If spicing had been more aggressive and backed by some hoppy bitterness, this would’ve been better, but it is definitely drinkable. Tried at Neil’s in 2012.

Pours hazy straw, with a white head. Some aroma of wheat, and some weak spice (nutmeg?). Crisp, indeed, but too light for me.

Onslow (1257) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Light colored hazy brew with small white head. Aroma of wheat, spice. Taste is wheat / wit with a bit of spice in the finish. IMO, the wheat and spice don’t get along too well.

I agree with the reviews that say Christmas spices + wheat beer === strange. I did find it an interesting experiment, not revolting, but probably won’t buy more.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with minimal white head. Aroma of cinnamon and oranges. Interesting flavor, with wheat and yeast character of this beer mixing with the orange and cinnamon notes. Light and smooth finish. Nice holiday beer.
