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.

Thanks Joey! Strange label that doesn't mention brewery name, ABV, or Surgeon General's Warning. Shared with Nate, because I know he loves Christmas beer.

A - It's a gusher! Pours with a big foam that settles to a persistent thin cap, but no lace. Hazed golden straw body.

S - I don't think this is supposed to smell like brettanomyces, but it does. Lots of funk mingles with ginger, and an odd mouthwash flavor imparts some citrus and medicinal character. Very strange.

T - Taste is a little less weird, but I'm not sure if that's for better or for worse. Lots of citrus peel, a hint of mouthwash, and some pale malt sweetness.

M - Overcarbonated, sticky, medium-light body.

D - Yikes! Something went horribly awry with Swamphead's first bottled offering. I'm guessing one of the many adjuncts (cranberries, ginger, oranges, etc.) led to infection. Still, I liked this more than some of the non-infected beers I've had recently.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottle grabbed from the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy nearly clear light yellow with a small quickly receding white head. Big fruit on the aroma, oranges, tart cranberry, honey, wheat, some funky yeast and just a hint of spice. Flavor is big orange peel, some lightly tart cranberry, a bit of coriander (?) spice, lemon peel. This is extremely light bodied with huge effervescent carbonation that makes this lighter and dryer than the regular version of Cottonmouth with less sweetness. Lingering orange peel and light sweetness. I like this a lot. A very very light holiday brew that can be sucked down all day long. They really hit the orange blossom honey and cranberry tart on the nose here. Nicely crafted if not the best Belgian Wit out there.

M- Medium body and moderate carbonation

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

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.

Pours a cloudy, nearly opaque, amber with fast fading one finger of white foam, a few rings of delicate lace down the glass. Smell: lightly bready, ginger and cranberry are here in moderation, notes of lemon peel and coriander. Taste: mild notes of raw cranberry and lemon, tangy wheat, mildly bready, with ginger creeping in towards the end of the sip. As it warms the cranberry shows up more in the finish, but it’s never overpowering. Light-medium bodied, lowish carbonation. A nice “holiday” spin on their wit, the additions aren’t overpowering as in certain well known beers in this style. (2011 version; below reviews are from 2010's output).

No head to speak of with minimal lace on a cloudy dull golden body. Aroma of funky yeast, tart orange and tangerine and herbal hops. Flavor is mild and subdue, a little flat with yeast, hint of clove and herbal hops, some lemon and peppercorn. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. The flavor is nice, about as dynamic as a witbier can be and isn't too sweet.
