A Winter White Ale because what else is Winter? The cold sets in and hangs for months it seems. Everything slows down. Time warps and youre covered with a wash of white. Thought I meant winter, didnt you? Jadis will take you away from winter, even if temporarily.

On tap, pours a hazy orange. Not much in the way of aroma. Unlike most winter whites this is heavy on spice. Some citrus as well. Goes down easy, pretty impressed.

Orange draft pour from draft at Ironside. No head. Cinnamon and spicy Christmas type Ale. Pretty good for the style.

JPDIPSO (6093) - 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 (818) - 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 (254) - 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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bwa5879 (932) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2016
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 its not a good idea. This isnt white and it certainly doesnt taste like Belgian Wit at all. All Im 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 (4147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Not that I care but this is way off style for a witbier; its just way too spice heavy. Actually, I reckon its 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 itd 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.

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.
