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.

Looks like I liked this more than most. Pours cloudy yellow / orange with a large soapy off-white head. The aroma has lots of spiciness (cinnamon jumps out most), orange peel, smooth wheat, powder and an overall dryness. Medium smooth body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a gentle spice blend (lots present, but it’s not harsh) balance by rich smooth wheat. The finish has light plasticy taste, but not too big. Large amount of nutmeg and cinnamon that lingers. Nice unique holiday beer.

ben4321 (4093) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/6/14

Aroma: The aroma of this one is full of wheat, lemon, and lots of spice
Appearance: The pour is a murky gold-orange, with a fizzy off-white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of spice and lemon over wheat malt flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a lively-to-fizzy carbonation, and a spicy finish
Overall Impression: Somehow I waited until May to pull this from the fridge. I wasn’t overly impressed by this beer. There’s too much carbonation and too much spice for it to be particularly drinkable, and the flavors are only alright.

Bottle from SAMs. Cloudy yellow orange with foamy webby white head and lace. Nose is fairly dry and lightly spicy, some orange peel, light lemon. Flavor shows some cereal like malty flavors upfront, with light spice and a citrusy slick finish. Solid from Sammy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
