Mmm, another winter beer provided by alex, thanks! Poured from a bottle with a super creepy label of santa and some sleeping children, has a hazy golden yellow with a tiny bubly white head. Smells like rotten eggs, hydrochloric sulfides, some brett, slightly fruity, lots of wet bready dough. Taste is impressively bad. Band aids, antiseptic, lemons, barnyard funk, slight pine and a touch of wheat. Pretty sure this one is infected. Light to medium body with a medium fizzy carbonation. The combination of rotten eggs and and aids was a new taste for me, but not pleasant at all. This is definitley not the worst christmas beer I have ever had, but its up there.

On tap at Tipple's from notes on phone

A- Hazy golden body with a big white head

S- Wheat, spices and yeasty with a hint of cranberry

T- Follows the nose, wheat, yeasty and some spicing, an above average witbier

M- Medium body and moderate carbonation

O- Good brew and being local makes it more likely that I'll have again

Reviewed from notes. Had this with Christmas dinner thanks to Craig at SwampHead. This is their Cottonmouth Wit spiced with cranberries, ginger and orange blossom honey.

Appearance - A little darker than the standard Cottonmouth but with a nice white head that didn't have much retention but left a lot of nice lacing.

Nose - Lots of ginger with some nice balanced fruit sweetness. The ginger I think overpowered the the spices in the nose but they were there in the flavor.

Taste - Again lots of ginger but with more of the typical witbier flavors of banana, citrus and clove. There is some tartness towards the end from the cranberries. Overall, very good beer.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Nice and prickly which was nice in keeping it cleansing.

Overall - Loved this one and can't wait until next year to get some more of it. Reminded me a good bit of DFH's Pangea with the ginger, which isn't a bad thing at all.

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to sportstsar for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, blueberry Tootsie Pop, cranberry, and ginger tea aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart citrus and cranberry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Served on tap @ Kickbacks
Appearance was milky golden straw color with a tight head and cap.
Appropriatte wit aromas of light wheat malts, mild clove spice/lemon/citrus and Belgian yeast character. A dash of Cranberry and ginger sneaks in.
Tastes as with nicely belnd balance of the spice not. Supported well by the creamy mouthfeel and crisp carbonation. I enjoyed the ginger and seasonal fruit notes.
I very much enjoyed this brew. It was a standout offering in my opinion, a stellar showcase of the Witbier style.

Additional info;
I attended a Swamphead Beer dinner at Kickbacks here in Jacksonville Florida 12/13/2010. The lineup overall impressed me, brews were appropriatte to style and well done across the board. I most notably enjoyed the Hoe Hoe Hoe Wit, Tupelo Cream Ale, Stumpknocker APA, and 10-10-10 Whiskey Barrel Aged as standouts for the evening. Overall a very talented brewery across the entire lineup. I had chance to meet Luke the owner who was a great guy, and Craig the brewer who was passionate and open to share his processes. Both were knowlegdable and I am very excited about this new Florida Brewery.

Here is are most of the Swamphead brews that were offered at the dinner;
Hoe Hoe Hoe Winter Seasonal - a Belgian style specialty ale with cranberries, ginger and orange blossom honey
Wild Night Tupelo Honey Cream Ale
Cottonmouth Belgian Style Wheatbier
Stumpknocker American Pale Ale
