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.

Lightly hazy golden with a white head. Citrus, wheat, earthy, yeast, light sweetness. A bit of tang on the back end. Not really feeling this one. Too much spice here.

I actually like the aroma here, comes off as tart citrus almost defying style. Nice opaque gold but with a real small tight head. Some lacing. Taste is initially good, but the sort of luxurious wheat quality get muddled by spices. I would never buy this.

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.

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.
