2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a dark gold color with a small white head. The nose smells like a holiday spiced Wit. Light and crisp on the palate with light wheat notes, a hint of cinnamon, and orange. The winter season just doesn’t scream "holiday wit" to me. Sam, what’s up with the weak winter offering???

12/30/2013: Samuel Adams White Christmas (Ale brewed with spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, & orange peel)... The aroma is nutmeg-dusted orange and the flavor is lots of cinnamon on top of a citrusy wheat maltiness; it almost has the raw, dusty spice quality to it. I was thinking that this might just be the wheat version of Old Fezziwig, but the ginger in that works harmoniously with the maltiness whereas the nutmeg and cinnamon in this are just a bit too much on top of the Belgian Wit-like base of this week. I’m definitely not a big fan of the White Christmas. 12 fl. oz. bottle (5.8% ALC/VOL; Enjoy Before MAY14) from Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating #407 for this beer.

Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is orange, bread and cookie malt, wheat, oats, and light floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt dominate with some wheat and herbs and a heavy dose of orange towards the end; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. The nose on this has a lot more spices than I would expect. It’s a bit hard to drink because of that.. Not my style.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma has a touch of spice and a touch of citrus...very subtle and faint aroma. Flavor has cinnamon and nutmeg...a bit muddled but seasonal spices and not overly bold. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with an orange/cinnamon dry spicy finish.
