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 thatís perfect for the season.

I thought that the idea of this beer was very clever, but it didnít come out all that well. This is your typical Belgian Wit, but watered down. The spice profile (cinnamon instead of corriander) works out great, but the body of the beer leaves much to be desired. Not at rich as the style usually is.

Mush Doggie Mush! I fell for the $11.99 sampler pack at the store yesterday. Muted hazy yellow in the glass. Rounded and decently spiced Belgian white. Cinnamon and orange peel noticeable. Sweet honey train follows thru to finish. Too bad there were only two of these in the 12 pack, as I could have consumed four of them with ease.

12oz bottle from sampler at Ericaís parentís around or on Christmas. Hazy peach-yellow pour. Nose has a little bit of citrus, but overall this beer lacks the citrus zest I love in witbiers. Not bad at all, though. Easy drinking, like all of the beers in the sampler pack, and good enough to probably be my favorite of the 6.

Iím not sure Iíd consider this a witbier, as I didnít get any of the usual phenols and esters associated with that yeast, rather it seemed an ordinary wheat beer spiced with all the listed spices. The nutmeg came through the strongest, giving it an overall spice profile very similar to Anchor OSA in both aroma and flavor. Fairly solid malt/grain balance, drinkable enough and the spices werenít overdone.

dnstone (2140) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Pours a hazed golden with a chalky white edge and soft white head. Slight floral-sweet, cranberryesque aroma. A thick white with an orangey edge and noticeable spice character and that signature Sam Adams maltiness.

Murky witbier yellow with a creamy white crown. Aroma of cinnamon, wheat, coriander, pepper, yeast and bread. Taste is spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg, some coriander, pepper and grains and wheat in the background. Spicy finish.

Hazy orange with a bit of white head. Aroma is sweet with mild citrus and spices. Taste is the same, and finishes with spiced banana esters.

12 ounce bottle poured a hazy light yellow color with aromas of citrus, coriander, spice, and some light wheat. Flaovrs are the same, light spiciness in the aftertaste, decent witbeer overall.

SamP01 (567) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours a hazy pale golden yellow with a medium off white head. Aroma and Taste of sweet biscuit malt, wheat, yeast, with some light spicy fruity notes and some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a combination of sweet malt, wheat, yeast with some light spicy fruity flavor and mild bitterness, slight nutty flavor on the end. Overall a good drinking session ale.

Bamsen78 (3141) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Bottle at Ungstrupís. Pours slightly hazy pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of flowers and nutmeg with subtle hoppy notes. Dark, sweetish and spicy aroma of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, hops and malt. Sweetish aftertaste. Nice.
