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.

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2012
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

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.

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
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.

redpooba (404) - Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2012
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.
