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 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

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.

SHIG (3934) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle thanks to my friend Mourty: Poured a hazy yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is full of spices such as cinnamon and coriander. Taste reminds me of ginger bread cookies with loads of very balancing spices. Seemed very festive.

Nuffield (3836) - 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.

kidmartinek (3748) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Cloudy tangerine color with a white head that’s short-lived. Thick, yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Tastes like a BPA with a little gingerbread spice. Pretty good. It’s a bit thick, but there’s really not much else bad to say about it exept for the wimpy head.

Golden beer with a short lived foamy white head. Light cinnamon spice nose with some orange notes. Light bready beer with some dry cinnamon and a bit of sour orange. Okay seasonal.
