malty aroma, out of bottle so unable to give appearance rate, lightly sour, lightly bitter, light sweetness, wheaty for an Xmas but like it, lively, a "light Xmas Ale" makes sense. enjoyed it

Crisp with a hint of "spices"...enough so as not to be overpowering. A nice white ale that could be served with Christmas dinner and Plum Pudding! Would drink at Christmastime again next year! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 Fl OZ ($1.75) not a bad beer just not something I could see myself rushing off to get. The harvest boxset was better than the winter set.

Hazy gold pour. Taste of ale with nutmeg. Finish is not bad, could cut back on the nutmeg a little...

A bad blue moon with christmas spices but then again I consider blue moon to be pretty bad.

Very nice, traditional Christmas ale. Slightly spicy, but not too much. Somewhat bland.

rjmc64 (20) - Deer Park, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours a hazy light gold, with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is wheat and some citrus. Mouthfeel is medium to light. Nice wheat flavor followed by winter spices. Very drinkable.

Another from the winter sampler. Wheat and yeast nose. Taste has strong sweet Orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg. A fuller body than a typical wit, it’s decent.
