Orange draft pour from draft at Ironside. No head. Cinnamon and spicy Christmas type Ale. Pretty good for the style. JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Amber color with a taller, stable, heavy cream colored head. Full array of spices. Spice cookies and light malt. A touch too bitter in the finish. But a nice spice brew overall. 1/14 drdisque (886) - Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2016
On tap at the Annex. Pours cloudy light gold. Aroma is soapy and yeasty. Flavor is lots of wheat but also a lot of soapy lavender like flavors and a touch of hops. Not bad, but near the threshold of being too floral to be palatable. seuinoz (260) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Nutmeg, cinnamon,and a hint of gingerbread in the aroma. Hazy yellow in color with a small white head. Taste is gingerbread cookie with cinnamon. Palate Medium body, average carbonation, overall a good white ale reminding me of the holidays. Weevo (182) - Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle from beer club which got lost in the back of the fridg and just found it. Not bad except for the clove thing, not a fan of that in any beer. Luckily Greenbush makes plenty of other beers that will do just fine.

Cloudy orange pour with little white haze. Aroma has cold rich cream, cinnamon, gingerbread, boozy, licorice. Average carbonation, mouthfeel slightly foamy, effervescent finish. Flavor is slightly bitter and has most of the notes from the nose but with some hefty but bitter orange.

Whomever thought was a good idea to put cardamom and cloves in beer (the exception being a select few who invented ’holiday’ brews) someone needs to let everyone else know that it’s not a good idea. This isn’t ’white’ and it certainly doesn’t taste like Belgian Wit at all. All I’m getting is a medicinal, herbal unpleasantness. Like someone dropped a fucking Ricola cough drop in an amber ale. I normally dig Greenbush. But this shit is garbage. Frank (4240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Not that I care but this is way off style for a witbier; it’s just way too spice heavy. Actually, I reckon it’s too spice heavy for any style or beer in general. It is a gorgeous looking beer but it just reeks of cloves and orange peel. This smells like it’d make a pretty nice potpouri or an incense stick to burn while you smoke weed in your dorm room but this simply does not translate to a great tasting beer. dewaynef (5) - USA - JAN 12, 2016 does not count
I really like this beer. Obvious spicey flavors and scent. Love it with food. herbs, clove, Christpuncher (3214) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2015
This is one of the best for style. Lots of Connamon and nutmeg. Well balanced though and is a nice Christmas beer to drink. Probably one max. Had out of a bottle at home.
