3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is full of spice, cranberry, and apple. Murky ruby appearance. Apple cider initial taste. Many spices are noticeable, perhaps too much. Nutmeg, peppermint, ginger. The aftertaste is pleasant however the palate is overloaded with at first. Overall a good winter beer if you enjoy spices. Alcohol is not too overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Slightly cloudy copper with a lot of holiday aromas goin on: poinsettia, cinnamon, cardamom, apple skin, and something lightly bactillic. The flavor has a ton of apple and apple skin, some cherry, cinnamon, cardamom, green tea, cherry, and something like watery whiskey. Decent, but feels a little disjointed.
