An unfiltered white ale with a distinct aroma unlike most other SA products.

Appears cloudy and golden as you'd expect with an unfiltered white. Carries about a fingers depth head that soon sinks down to a light cover over the top of the beer.

Definite taste of cinnamon and nutmeg, a little too much for my taste but not as overwhelming as many of these "holiday" beers.

Refreshing, low carbonation mouth feel.

A good addition to the Sam Adams line. Better than some of their other special beers. I may buy a six pack to see how it last over a full evening.
