A holiday classic! Not quite as good as Southern Tier Xmas but still a very good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (461) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
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.

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. (12/20)

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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with almost no head at all. Aroma and taste of slight spice and malts.

scottw86 (1179) - Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Poured a slightly hazy orange/yellow color with a frothy white head that stayed. Aroma has lots of coriander with a touch of banana. Maybe a bit of clove and nutmeg too. Taste is very creamy with oranges and wheat. Finish has lots of spice like cinnamon and nutmeg. A little bit of a cardboard flavor, and not enough carbonation. Overall it’s a nice creamy flavorful beer.

2.4

Bottle - Pours a slightly hazy light yellow. Wheat beer aroma. Starts like a wheat beer then a too sweet taste. Not so good.
