Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: TMoney2591 on 10-22-2012

As crisp as the first snowfall of the year, this unfiltered white ale is blended with holiday spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, & orange peel. The familiar citrus and wheat characters of the ale are complemented by the warmth of the spices for a festive brew that's perfect for the season.

A very solid white ale, with some seasoning as expected of a "Christmas beer". A great blend of the refreshing body of a white ale combined with the tastiness of a winter warmer.
