Got this in a variety pack for winter. S/kind of a sour type wheat with slight citrus. T/the typical wheat beer with some spices in the back end. I did detect hints of spices mostly on the first few sips. There is light carbonation which is nice. O/It is a Sam Adams. What can you expect from most of their beers? It is drinkable but does not keep my attention throughout the beer. I would not seek this out by itself but unfortunately I had to get the pack to get the Old Fezziwig.

Poured a 1inch of fluffy white into a 16oz Georgia Bulldog pint glass, and the body of this beer had a light golden color with a cloudy white haze to it. The aroma was by far the best part of the beer, having a nice mix of nutmeg, cinnamon, and orange. The taste pretty much matches up with what you get from the aroma, and as you drink this beer you get a light frosty lacing all along your glass. The mouth feel of this beer is thin with light carbonation. Samuel Adams White Christmas is a good beer, and it hit all its marks of being a Witber.

A very good smooth christmas taste. It is definitely one of the great Christmas beers.
