12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big pear, apple, orange peel, light banana, clove, pepper, wheat, biscuit, coriander, cardamom, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of spice, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big pear, apple, orange peel, light banana, wheat, biscuit, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, coriander, cardamom, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, orange peel, light banana, wheat, biscuit, clove, coriander, cardamom, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice witbier. All around good balance and robustness of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

$1.79 for a 12oz bottle @ BevCo. "A Winter White Ale brewed with spices" per the label.
Per the website: Brewed with Belgian Pale, Midwest Wheat Malt, Belgian Munich, 2-Row Caramel Malt 10L, Wheat Flakes, Victory Malt. Hopped with Cascade & Tettnanger. Fermented with House yeast and spiced with Cloves, Cardamom, and Orange Peel.
6.1% ABV, 20 ibu, OG=8º Lovibond

Pours out to a slightly hazy burnt orange. Definitely much darker than a white ale. Forms a huge spewing head with excellent retention and very nice lacing. perhaps this wasn't completely attenuated when it was bottled, but it's probably close to 3.25 carbs or so. The aroma hits you, not at all subtlely, with cloves, nutmeg and ginger notes, but as the website says, it doesn't contain nutmeg or ginger. Not really picking up on the orange peel. Mouthfeel is smooth, easy drinking, medium bodied. The taste is pretty damn good. I'm not a big fan of spiced beers, but this one is damn tasty. The cloves compliment the biscuity victory malt and the grainy sweet munich helps to balance out the bitterness and spices, enough to leave a pleasant lingering sweetness which hangs delicately in balance with the medium firm bitterness. The bitterness is enough that it makes you want to drink more...not overly sweet like many holiday spiced beers. A little bit of pepper appears in the aftertaste (probably the cardamom). Otherwise, cleanly fermented with no appreciable off flavors or aromas.

This is an interesting, unique spiced beer that I could recommend to friends, however one or two is enough for one sitting. Recommended.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new beer to me from Greenbush, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a slightly hazed golden orange with some dark sediment visible. One finger of fizzy white foam for a head that dies down quick. Looks alright for what it is.

S - Smell is of acidic lactose, vinegar tartness, clove spice, bananas, bubblegum toothpaste, & cream. Tons of bananas and creamy yogurt culture smells permeate the nose.

T - Taste is of lemongrass, musty yeast, dry breadiness, fruity creamy banana, some floral spice like coriander and cloves, but mostly lots of yeasty earthiness. Some metallic minerals on the finish.

M - Feel is crisp and carbonated, with a smooth, clean, dry finish. Bitter earthiness lingering on the palate.

Overall, not a very "wintery" sort of beer, but it's whatever. Well enough for what it actually is, but it is a fairly standard, average offering from Greenbush.

Draft served in a small rounded pilsner glass at Howells and Hood.

Clear amber color with trails of visible carbonation. Tight head of white foam that left behind a little spotty lacing. Doesn't look like a "Belgian Wheat" as described by the bartenders sell sheet. Flaked oats, Munich malt, Tettnanger hops were all used, from what I can recall from that same blurb.

Aroma was grassy, lightly malty, and muted, didn't notice any coriander or any identifiable wit characteristics.

Taste was slightly dry and herbal, vague bready malt and light floral presence. Light bodied and drinkable, though fairly simple and one dimensional. It didn't hold enough attention to drink more.

Serving type: on-tap
