Orange peel with a hint of Christmas spices. I don't know why but the people at Sams can't seem to figure out that orange peel is a strong ingredient that overpowers any others. They have the same problem with the white lantern. I want to like this beer, but until they try harder with their recipes I'll always look elsewhere for creative brews.

Part of Winter Variety Pack - Best by April:

Pours clouded light orange-amber with a fluffy head that soon thins. Thin lacing sticks.

The smell is of wheat tang with mild spices.

The taste is of wheat tang, orange peel, coriander, nutmeg, mint, mild cinnamon. It has a tangy, spicy, crisp finish.

It is light-bodied and fairly effervescent.

A mild witbier with some "holiday" spices. Not bad.
