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.

Appearance - 4/5
Pours a great looking, slightly hazy bright orange, with about 1.5 fingers of white foamy head. Can see an average amount of carbonation rising up the beer.

Smell - 3.5/5
Breadiness, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Smell is slightly sweet. Honestly, this smells like a pumpkin beer, not a christmas beer.

Taste - 3.9/5
Nutmeg, cinnamon, pie crust, light citrus. Light slight caramel malt taste. Again, this tastes basically like a pumpkin beer.

Mouthfeel - 3.8/5
Medium bodied, crisp but also smooth. Has a medium amount of medium-high carbonation.

Overall - 3.6/5
This was a decent beer, but honestly it tasted very similar to some pumpkin beers I've had. I was kind of disappointed, as I was expecting something a little more "Christmas-y". Still, I won't mine drinking the other 3 I got as part of the SA winter variety pack.
