Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Overall the beer was ok, tasting mainly of orange peel, and maybe a little nutmeg. I didn't taste much cinnamon, though. I think it would have been better if the flavors were more fully blended.

I didn't really like this beer. I don't think it tastes very good. The mix of spices is off. After the first taste I thought, this is not a winner. It is pretty light.
