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.

Get a faint orange in the aroma but mostly it’s wheat, from the first aroma to the last drop. A nice loft to it, but one is enough due to the heavy wheat body.

Bottle, this beer had a hazy dull yellow and orange pour, the pour made a one finger white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, this drink left some spots and partial rings of lacing on the sides of the glass, the bottle had a ring (about 1/8” wide or less) of light and medium brown sediment on the bottom, the aromas were wheat, orange fruit and vanilla with nutmeg spice in the background, faint floral and honey sweetness, it had flavors of wheat, some bread malt, citrus and some spice that was more nutmeg than cinnamon, the finish was dry, the mouth feel was less than medium with nice carbonation on the tongue, the spices were in the background and not overbearing which was good for me, this was a good beer but nothing about it makes me want to buy more, you may like it more than I did, I prefer a traditional Wit beer.

Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma is of cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus and wheat. Taste is the same. Nice carbonation.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a nice cinnamon and nutmeg combo. Flavor is also spice heavy with some bitterness toward the end. Kinda watery mouthfeel and its a bit thin all around. The spice is nice but takes away anything the base wit beer has to offer. If you like spices in your beer then this is for you.

19 nov 2012, bottle. Light gold and faintly cloudy. Nose is def a spiced Christmas beer; light coriander, nutmeg. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Gold ale with spices. A bit is nice but could drink a whole bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Canals. I was pleasantly surprised by this. I wasn’t expecting much, but it had a refreshing wheat, citrus and cinnamin flavor. This, but not bad.

Bottle. Poured a lighter orange color with a big white head. Aroma was citrus, bread and banana. Flavor was bubblegum, clovers, cives, and pepper. Some citrus in the finish. Medium body. Something missing with this beer. Average at best.

Nice looking cloudy golden orange with a dense white head. Citrus and nutmeg in the aroma. Taste is subtle spice and a little citrus, but pretty faint. Soft carbonation. Easy to drink.

Poured hazy yellow with little head and not lacing. The aroma and taste were primarily orange, cinnamon and clove with some wheat malt in the background. This is not something I’d get again. If I’m going to have a spiced winter ale I think I’d prefer a darker, malty ale with more subtle spices.
