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.

Bottle. Clear look, bigger foamy white head, and golden in color. The smell is wheat, very spiced, heavy and artificial like, and yeast. The taste is sweet, si heavily spiced to the point of icky, and sticky.

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
12 oz bottle from Country Club Liquors. Nose is grassy hops, oranges, cinnamon, and white bread. Murky yellow with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is light sweet, nutmeg, and a white pepperiness. Pretty decent!

ben4321 (3759) - 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. Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, hoppy and malty. Big winter spices on the nose and flavor. Easy finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of light spices, a little wheat, hints of hops, and light malts. Flavor the same, with everything pretty light. Light to average texture. Not bad but not great.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Sampled thanks to kristen bringing home the christmas pack this year :) Pours a semi hazy straw with good white head. The aroma is a bit boring wheat. But the flavor brings the spices and orange peel. I’d be interested to try this next to their white ale and see the difference? Finish of bitter lemon pith.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Hazy dark golden with a head that lingers as a white ring. Light citrus and spice aroma, and the spice, esp. the nutmeg, comes out more strongly in the flavor. Lingering notes deepen that sense. Moderately fizzy, but tight as well. Reasonable, drinkable. Bottle.
