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.

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

patrick767 (3407) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2014
bottle - this brew has a spicy, citrus aroma. It tastes very sweet with nutmeg and a hint of orange apparent. It’s medium bodied with a sweet, spicy finish. While okay, I thought it would be better with the sweetness toned down some.

Nice and iteresting to drink. Very smooth and soft, not too sweet and nice cloudy features there.

CardsPackHawks (92) - Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Got as part of the Christmas season variety pack. I usually enjoy this style, but something about this is funky. Not sure if it is the cinnamon or nutmeg, but something kinda ruins this beer.

jake65 (2544) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle: Pours a golden-orange color, translucent, and topped with a finger of creamy beige head. Nice amount of spice in the nose, but a little too much orange peel in the taste. More spice presence that I can qualify as sessionable. OK.

Not good looking not good smelling or tasting. Any flavor disappears quick very similar to other beers from this brewery. Not a fan.

ZacM612 (40) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Hazy gold with thin head. Aroma of orange and spices. Smooth and easy drinking. Not bad, but nothing special.

beerfest5 (1065) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 17, 2014
Poor interpretation of the style. Fake candy-like spice and aroma. Pours a yellowish straw color into the pint glass. Large white head that last for awhile. Aroma of lemon and orange with Christmas spices. Taste is bready malts with citrus zest and overwhelming amount of spices. Finish is acerbic and medicinal, fat malt on the tongue, not great.

HuskerTan (343) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle. A- Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, citrus, wheat. A- Off Yellow color, cloudy liquid, minimal white head. T- Spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, mild orange and citrus tones. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- Lots of spice to this beer. Almost like a spiced up Blue Moon. Could use a little more citrus but still nicely done.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Slightly hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that evaporates steadily Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Citrus, wheat and spice in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy wheat, cinnamon and biscuit malt. The finish is sweet with a mildly spiced aftertaste. Pretty average overall.
