12oz bottle. Pour was a hazy light golden color with one finger of white head. Aroma of lemon citrus and yeast. Mouth is light with small notes of citrus and spices. This wouldn’t be bad for a summer day. It goes down easy and kind of refreshing.

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

12 Fl Oz bottle @ Courtyard Marriott Atlanta. Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is spice (nutmeg, cinnamon), fruit, and chalk. Taste gentle sweet fruit, cinnamon. Light body, smooth with a medium spice finish.

Very fruity beer, with a bit of a sour aftertaste to it. I have always thought Sam Adams brewed very fine beer, and this is a very decent one; just not to my liking. I am learning more about which beers I do like as I go along, and Sam Adams will be a brand that I turn to for that quality, just not this beer.

Aroma: Light cereal notes with hints of doughiness. Spiciness throughout.
Appearance: Cloudy blonde with rich, white head.
Taste: Light bitterness with hints of spicy sweetness at the edges, but all very faint.
Palate: Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, minimal finish.
Overall: Very weak and watery beer. Extremely disappointing.

An unfiltered golden ale with a white head. It's an 'normal' white ale until the spices give it a solid boost. A warmer on a cool afternoon.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tan and hazy with a half finger head that didn’t last long and left ok lace.
Definitely lots of clove aroma, banana, spices, a little yeast.
Taste is spicier than a typical wit, festive and xmas like. Wheat, cloves, banana, cinnamon, and yeast fill the flavor.
Body is light and easy drinking with a spicy finish.
Overall it’s pretty average.
