Mmm, another winter beer provided by alex, thanks! Poured from a bottle with a super creepy label of santa and some sleeping children, has a hazy golden yellow with a tiny bubly white head. Smells like rotten eggs, hydrochloric sulfides, some brett, slightly fruity, lots of wet bready dough. Taste is impressively bad. Band aids, antiseptic, lemons, barnyard funk, slight pine and a touch of wheat. Pretty sure this one is infected. Light to medium body with a medium fizzy carbonation. The combination of rotten eggs and and aids was a new taste for me, but not pleasant at all. This is definitley not the worst christmas beer I have ever had, but its up there.

On tap at Tipple's from notes on phone

A- Hazy golden body with a big white head

S- Wheat, spices and yeasty with a hint of cranberry

T- Follows the nose, wheat, yeasty and some spicing, an above average witbier

M- Medium body and moderate carbonation

O- Good brew and being local makes it more likely that I'll have again

Reviewed from notes. Had this with Christmas dinner thanks to Craig at SwampHead. This is their Cottonmouth Wit spiced with cranberries, ginger and orange blossom honey.

Appearance - A little darker than the standard Cottonmouth but with a nice white head that didn't have much retention but left a lot of nice lacing.

Nose - Lots of ginger with some nice balanced fruit sweetness. The ginger I think overpowered the the spices in the nose but they were there in the flavor.

Taste - Again lots of ginger but with more of the typical witbier flavors of banana, citrus and clove. There is some tartness towards the end from the cranberries. Overall, very good beer.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Nice and prickly which was nice in keeping it cleansing.

Overall - Loved this one and can't wait until next year to get some more of it. Reminded me a good bit of DFH's Pangea with the ginger, which isn't a bad thing at all.
