Sampled thanks to kristen bringing home the christmas pack this year :) Pours a semi hazy straw with good white head. The aroma is a bit boring wheat. But the flavor brings the spices and orange peel. Id be interested to try this next to their white ale and see the difference? Finish of bitter lemon pith.

Pours a hazy gold, with white head. Aroma of spice. Taste is sort of a spiced up white beer, with a touch of citrus in there too.. Well enough blended, but not one that Ill need to have much more of. Ehhh....thumbs sideways on this.

Chudwick (3073) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12oz bottle - pours cloudy orange with thin white head and thin lacing. Nose is wet straw. Flavor adds orange peel and dough. Mildly sweet and a tad bitter. A light witbier but hides the ABV well. Would be good with sugar cookies or when devouring a gingerbread house.

TizzleJizzle (791) - Garland, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a super thin white top that dissipated seconds after pouring. Taste of spice, coriander, citrus, lemon peel, nutmeg, and maybe a slight bit of cinnamon. Overall this isnt a good representation of the witbier style, but I still enjoyed it. Slightly above average brew.

Scipio (980) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a bright and hazy yellow with a white head that evaporates quickly. Aroma contains cinnamon, orange, lemon, banana, and spice. Quite pleasing. The taste is generally what I was expecting from the aroma. The lemon and orange citrus come out most along with the cinnamon. Cinnamon in the aftertaste, but this does not last long at all. Light in body, with a fizzy texture. This one is alright I suppose but nothing approaching special. However, you could easily do worse.

vikingguy (1096) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Cloudy yellow color with foamy white head. Spicy sweet malt aroma. Taste is fruity, yeasty, and spicy. Coriander, ginger, cloves. Medium body. I thought this was a nice Christmas brew.

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2012
12oz bottle. Pour was a hazy light golden color with one finger of white head. Aroma of lemon citrus and yeast. Mouth is light with small notes of citrus and spices. This wouldnt be bad for a summer day. It goes down easy and kind of refreshing.

malty aroma, out of bottle so unable to give appearance rate, lightly sour, lightly bitter, light sweetness, wheaty for an Xmas but like it, lively, a "light Xmas Ale" makes sense. enjoyed it
