I think this is the current classic collection.


Looks like last years.  Mine had White Ale and Chocolate Bock instead of Cream Stout and Cranberry Lambic.  I'll miss the stout but always dumped out the CL every year.

Their Winter Lager is great, and most restaurants around me will have it on tap after Octoberfest and before Nobile Pils.

And Fezziwig is one of my favorite seasonal beers.

Having said that, I wouldn't be sorry if they took Old Fezziwig out this year, nor if Saranac ditched their horrible maple porter from their box.

I actually enjoy old fezziwig quite a lot.  It's almost worth it to buy the sampler just for that.

I feel the spice is a little overdone, but that might just be me.
I'm enjoying the Fezziwig right now . . . I was worried it would be overdone based on this thread, but I find it to be rather subdued.  Maybe it's just a year to year variation. 

I wont be in the US until mid-December, but I may pick one up and see if my feelings have changed.

Let us know, I'm interested in hearing what you think.
