Smells sweet and spicy - orange, nutmeg, cinnamon. Sweet taste with a lot of the spices coming through to balance the sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewturba (921) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours a really clear deep copper - light brown with an average sized off white head that leaves several spots of lace on the glass. Aroma is nutmeg, orange peel, cinnamon, vanilla, coriander, and honey notes. Not overpowering from any ingredient and smells just like the ingredients used. Flavour is sweet honey, nutmeg, orange peel, coriander, moderate bitterness, and faint cinnamon. Tasty seasonal beer.

9 mins to 12, so time to taste this. Almost Saison aroma, spices coming through. Tastes quite similar to raging bitch by flying dog, which is a massive compliment ? Very good

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks avrashi. As "Hitachino Nest Commemorative Ale". Cloudy orange. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, a bit of coriander, honey notes and a bit of fruitiness. Sweetish and spicy flavor with malt, vanilla, a bit of honey, caramel and spices. Medium-bodied.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1342) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2013
8% 2014 edition. A festive ale brewed with Coriander, cinnamon, orange peel, vanilla beans, nutmeg & cardamom. A lovely red pour with a fast disappearing beige head. A really spicy body, like holiday baked goods. The taste is graham & biscuit with tons of spices. Pretty good. As it warmed up the spicing kicks into gear but remains subtle & balanced. Bitter finish but tasty.

Smells of nutmeg, vanilla, orange peel. Taste mimics the aroma with a bitter finish. Finish is a bit too cloyingly sweet.

dfearnley (763) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle to tulip Pepper, coriander, nutmeg, Amber with a very creamy white head with a few large particulates floating around. Soy, sickly syrup, and chemicals. It’s an old bottle and it hasn’t aged well.

Ferris (2035) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle - Vintage 2008 - Lots of spice and orange. Cloudy orange with a very rich white head. Orange syrup and spices. More like a barleywine, but not great.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, poured into pint glass. Dense light brown, hazy, thick, smooth light beige head. Aroma is spicy, and a little citrus, sort of like a mute mulled wine, but not cloying. Also notes of musty earth. Taste is weizen-sweet to start, but proceeds to a full, round bitterness. Body is full, carbonation mid, slight alco-burn. Nice winter beer.
