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.

I was highly disappointed with this beer. I am no beer expert but I have had a wide variety of beers and this is one of the worst beers I have ever had. Its a creative blend, high quality beer but the taste was awful. I can't really think of words to explain it but it is tough to swallow.

Pours out a hazy golden blond with a half inch white head that shrinks quickly. There is spotty lacing as the glass dwindles.

There are banana bread, clove, and cinnamon notes int he smell.

Mild carbonation delivers the first sip, and the sweet wheat flavor is up front, with orange citrus accents, and some mild spices, like clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. This is a very light bodied wheat bear, but is leaves a slightly syrupy after taste and texture in my mouth. The flavors of clove, banana, and cinnamon linger on the pallet, along with the sweet syrupness aforementioned.

Not my favorite offering from Boston Brewing Company. A pale wheat ale with some flavors injected that just don't work.

Pretty much the same as summer ale with a bit more spice. Meh.

Bottle with a BB date of April from this year's winter sampler pack.

A-Poured into a pint glass this brew yields a thick finger of loosely bubbled snow white foam. Very cloudy and an ugly yellow/brown color. Very bubbly.

S-Wheat and yeast forward.

T-The nutmeg and cinnamon are very strong in this beer. Overshadows the soft wheat flavor and moderate yeast esters. A bit of orange here but not as dominant as the other spices.

M-Creamy, highly carbonated

O-Tastes a bit remniscent of egg nog with the combination of spices and creamy mouthfeel. The carbonation is too much and takes away from the smooth potential of this brew. An admitted Belgian wheat snob this beer is an ok drink but just doesn't cut it for me.

Too much christmas spice for a delicate beer style.
