White Christmas pours a light bodied cloudy gold in color with a light white head around the glass. The nose is pretty straightforward and simple. There is slight Belgian yeast character with a touch of coriander and nutmeg. The flavors have more of a presence but finish quickly. It features slightly sweet pale malts, some nutmeg, cinnamon, and coriander. It's seasonally appropriate. It drinks light in body and is pretty drinkable. Would I buy a six pack? No. But this beer is well suited for their Winter Classics Variety pack.

Poured a hazy orange color with about an inch of foam that spent itself quickly. Sme decent lacing in a Sam's pint. Aroma was typical wheat beer, very faint on the spices. Noted orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, maybe cardamom?, coriander. Taste was average. Nothing outstanding, but nothing bad either. Some spice notes, typical wheat beer haylike flavor. Lingered a bit on the tongue, but somewhat thin mouthfeel overall. Nice carbonation level. Wife liked it...

Dark hay colored and opaque. Head holds up for awhile before fading down to a lobster claw shaped skim. Foam don't stick.

Aroma is wheaty must with orange and nutmeg and cinnamon. The Xmas spices with the classic coriander + wit combo comes off as...off.

Spicy coriander citrus cuts through first but fades to cinnamon - like cinnamon burps from BSN Atro-Phex if you've ever had the misfortune of that side effect.

I don't like the mash up. The citrus is bright and shiny and the cinnamon is dull and heavy and they just don't play well together on my palette.

A-pours a hazy golden color with a white head with decent retention
S-some subtle spice and citrus, bit of malty hay in the background
T-bready malt with light citrus bitterness and some spice in the finish
M-medium-light bodied fair amount of carbonation
O- I was a bit underwhelmed with this beer. High drinkability but not much else
