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.

12/17/13 Alluring Belgian scent of banana, spice, and clove. Decent appearance, a hazy copper. The feel was a silky, medium bodied texture. The flavor began well with spice and clove over a fruity hop, but ended a bit bitter and stale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lamas (1360) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Enjoy before: 04/14. A hazy pale amber pour with a thick and fluffy off-white head. The wheaty aroma features some light caramel, oranges, citrus rinds, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coriander. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. The taste starts with a little wheat, some bananas, and a touch of caramel. Tangy orange juice, sour lemons, and citrus rinds are present at the end. The aforementioned spices are noticeable throughout. Poor quality.

Hazy pour. Little aroma. Bread-like base ale. Nice spice flavor, primarily cinnamon. Short-lived aftertaste.

DMLINAZ (290) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 15, 2013
From the winter variety pack at Costco. The orange, cinnamon and other spices (nutmeg?) kind of drown out the white ale quality. Still, nice for this time of year.

Jow (2158) - New York, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle as part of winter mix pack. Pours cloudy orange. Nose of wheat and Christmas spices. Tastes of nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper, orange peel, lemon, yeast, wheat, some banana. Drying finish.

Ew! Bad, weird, watery, malty, spices. Just avoid. Waste of a beer bottle. Not worth your time.

Pours a cloudy Golden color worth a slightly off-white had. Chorus aroma, combined with nutmeg. Flavor was a bit too sour for my taste, and listed way to long. Funny thing was, the first one was good, but the more I drank, the less I liked it.

Unlike most holiday brews, this is a light, refreshing witbier that really clears the palate after all the porters, stouts, and what-not! This beer smells like Christmas with a one-two-three punch of cinnamon, clove, and coriander. Tastes like Christmas at first sip, but goes down a delicious witbier. Very sweet, but not icky. Really nice and refreshing.

Decent seasonal wit. Definitely get spices, nutmeg and cinnamon. Some orange peel. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
