Hefeweizen abused with hops. What happened to this Christmas ale? Drain-pour.

I was expecting so much more from this brew.
I love Victory products, generally.
This winter wheat beer is - well...wierd!
The color is really light, the flavor is a wine-cooler-ish.
I was looking for a break from the stouts and the porters - but this was a disappointment.

This beer is incredibly to sweet. Kind if a strange aftertaste. I do not recommend this beer

Wheat beer all the way, but the spices do nothing to enhance the bland nature of the beer.
