Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Pours a cloudy reddish brown color. Nose is one the spicy side, not unlike a witbier or biere de garde. Body is rich and malty, taste akin to gingerbread. Decent but unremarkable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was mild malt and mild vinous. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish mild vinous hop aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of vinous hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Hell, it was on sale for next to nothing so I couldn’t resist. It pours a hazy deep orange with a lasting off white head. The aromas is very spicy with lots of clove, mace, and dried fruit. The flavor is a little sweet with some caramel and that same spicy, dried fruitiness from the nose. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not mind blowing compared to it’s peers, but for $5, it was worth it!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. One inch of white head under a murky amber brew. The aroma is enticingly piney; like sniffing a fresh Xmas tree. Fresh herbs, grass, cucumber, cookie dough, tree resin, subtle horse blanket, malty caramel in the backbone. Medium carbonation and medium body. Best holiday beer I've had all season!
