Lots of spice and it tastes nice. Better after a few. It does the trick. Nice on a cold night

Pours clear golden with a diminishing medium beige head, fine lacing. Aromas of biscuit, coriander, nutmeg, caramel, grass. Light body, smooth and creamy. Mildly sweet, a hint of citrus, mild bitter finish. The spice flavor is nicely subdued, but enough to keep it from being particularly quaffable. The normal witbier wheat and yeast notes are largely missing; it could pass for a golden ale. ndfreak77 (126) - USA - DEC 7, 2014
Hazy orange. Sweet malty aroma. Malty flavor with notes of ginger, nutmeg and citrus. Sweet finish. Refreshing! RichieBoy (67) - Getzville, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2014
A holiday classic! Not quite as good as Southern Tier Xmas but still a very good brew.

Well-crafted and refreshing brew with citrusy and spicy character, albeit rather uninspired. Flavors are a bit subdued and palate is not as crisp and fresh as one would want.

I normally really like Sam Adams beers. Boston lager is a year round regular for me and I also always get some winter lager every season. This beer, however, I didn’t like. Not much of spices with almost a potato taste on the back. Maybe it’s just a style I don’t like but not for me. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Unclear. Light orange, yellow. Strong white head. Holiday spices - not overdone. Wheat. Citrus. Creamy. Pretty sweet. Not bad. UXO (1896) - CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours hazy pale gold with a short, short-lived white head, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is muted wheat, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange peel. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet and mild bitter. (5/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter orange peel finish. (3/5)
Oh, look, a witbier for people who don’t like witbiers and/or can’t spell witbier. Pretty bland, although there is a little bit of a lingering orange peel bitterness that’s not bad, and the moderately high ABV is fairly well integrated. It’d do in a pinch.

Golden straw color poured from a bottle, not much of an aroma, tastes similar to moat Belgian Whites, cardamom and spices, but more forward with ginger and some cinnamon. Not my favorite type of beer, but drinkable. HarryPlopper (57) - - NOV 27, 2014
Nice white ale with not so subtle hints of spice. Clearly a beer for the masses, this beer does nothing extraordinary, but it is quite drinkable with a large holiday meal.
