Slight hint of cloves, pours clear amber with a nice white head. Becomes more sweet the more you drink it, so probably not sessionable. Lively mouthfeel. An enjoyable holiday beer, could have a couple but too sweet to have too many. Cybercat (5894) - Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Pours clear chestnut with a thick, though not too persistent, eggshell head. Aroma has woody and spice hints, a little malt, not strong but promising. Flavor features firm toasted malt, woody, cinnamon, toffee, chocolate, and subtle citrus tones. Mouthfeel features typical body but some good fizz. Enjoy the holidays. bubblehouse (1543) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Pretty sweet. Not all that impressed with the winter pack for samuel adams but they make subpar beer. nealblind (1877) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - DEC 28, 2015
clear red pour. Aroma caramel cookies. tastes bitter cherries, quite hoppy. super fizzy.

Feeziwigs is a nice seasonal beer.. but it to me, it is so similar to their Winter Ale. It seems much like the same base ale with just a different spice flavor profile. I actually wished Sam Adams would not have the Holiday pack with their Winter lager and Feeziwigs together. I’m probably in the minority here.. but I would rather see the Cranberry Lambic (okay,.. it is strange and sour and NOT a real lambic but it is distinctly DIFFERENT) instead of the Winter Lager, which you can always get in six packs. tekstr1der (491) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 25, 2015
It’s been years since I was luck enough to have this on draught in the late 90’s. My local store split out the singles from the winter pack apparently. Anyhow, glad to revisit - this pours mahogany with thin off-white head. Aroma is malty with mild spice, chocolate, and fresh-cracked hazelnut. Flavor is similar, but somehow different in a good way, with the nut and spice mixing to produce the dominant, but never overwhelming, flavors. This on top of malt and slight caramel sweetness is fantastic. I really enjoy this one, then and now. p0rkch0p (121) - Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2015
For a darker beer this sure is light and easy drinking. Toffee and coffee notes. Great for a sample pack to enjoy different flavors.

12 oz bottle from winter classics variety pack. Fridge chilled. Served in tulip glass. Thinner 1 finger off white head is gone really quickly. Little bit of lacing. Beer is a dark mahogany color. Aroma is mostly sweet malts with a hint of cinnamon. Taste is light to moderately sweet with notes of cinnamon and very faint orange. Ligjt to medium bodied beer. Average carbonation. Overall a solid holiday classic though not extremely exciting. beer_rookie (586) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Pours a clear ruby color. About two fingers tan color head. Okay retention, pretty good lacing.
Aroma is very malty, and sweet I smell some chocolate, and also light orange peel. Not really picking up a lot of the spices the label speaks of.
Taste is quite malty and sweet. Pretty chocolatey. Again slight orange flavor. Slightly bitter finish. I also taste a tang of alcohol at the very end. I have to search pretty hard, but I can pick up some cloves.
Mouthfeel is medium to medium full body. Sweet, but it’s surprisingly bitter. It’s drinkable, and sessionable. I’d say this is a good warming beer.
Overall, I like it. Not as good as I expected however. This makes a good winter offering from Sam Adams. I would probably suggest it. But I also think that if these were in my sampler pack, then they would probably be the first ones I would give away.
