DandyWolfFloyd (860) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Aroma - has some alcohol and spice - more muted than I would have suspected. Appearance - body is honey amber colored. The head starts at 1 1/2 and slightly off-white, the head fades to a small bit of foam. Taste - moderately sweet, with a little Christmas associated spice - allspice, nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon. There is a bit of a Grand Marnier orange and some bits of honeyed malt. Palate - body is medium, texture somewhat oil and slick, carbonation is average almost soft. The finish has a spicy bit of bitterness and a twinge of alcohol.

BeerRenter76 (473) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with honey and spice flavors on the finish, not getting the vanilla anywhere. Overall, this is an ok beer, not much going on.

cmacklin (576) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
330 ml bottle. (Commemorative Ale, 8% ABV) Pours a hazy orange with an average, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Sweet, spicy aroma of nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, yeast, orange and malt. Sweet, creamy orange flavour with subtle, spicy notes of coriander, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, yeast, alcohol and a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Quite unique.
