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.

This beer poured from the bottle and was cloudy gold/yellow in colour. Smelled slightly of hops and spices; mostly ginger and cinnamon. The taste instantly reminded me of gingerbread. Slight hop and wheat after taste.

Would I buy this beer again? Probably not.

Appearance - Pours cloudy, pale orange with a white, half finger head. Subpar retention results in sparse lacing.

Smell - Smells of pie crust, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Taste - Follows the nose. Heavy on the nutmeg and cinnamon spices, with a pie crust malt flavor. Faint hint of coriander as the beer heads for the finish, and a subtle wheatness peaks through at the tail-end of the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light in body, with an almost fizzy carbonation.

Overall - Not very impressed. Reminiscent of their Harvest Pumpkin ale, minus the hints of pumpkin. Is it drinkable? Yeah, but I wouldn't want to buy it again, and I'm hoping it's a one-and-done in the Winter pack.
