Leafs93 (1883) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours reddish orange with a small white head. Aroma is spicy cinnamon, caramel and toast. Taste is sweet and spicy, the finish is sticky. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

callmemickey (3625) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Darker orange colored body, thin white head, spotty lacing. Nose is a blend of holiday spices (cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg) plus some ginger and soft dark fruits. Flavor, unfortunately, gets a bit squirrely as ginger dominates and hangs around for way too long. Medium body with moderate to lively carbonation, spicing throughout.

Beerman6686 (5340) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2015
This poured a light am er with a white head. Aroma was of light apple cinnamon and not much else. Flavor similar, not much to it, a little boring itself too.

NikkTwist (2008) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Draft at Good Dog. Hazy light orange copper with a fizzy off-white head. Semblance of lace. Strong orange/tangerine flavors with a fair amount of cinnamon/clove spice. Body feels bigger than expected though the spicy citrus flavors are quite upfront and not overly complicated. Worth a try.

ryanscourt (926) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Very seasonal--tastes like gingerbread cookie. Sweet but light. Had at the brewery on tasting. Not sure I could drink a pint of this all at once

stevoj (2880) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Winter spices fall flat on the tongue, sticky coating on the tongue and metallic finish. Not the best of the winter brews.

reggiedunlop (3451) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a murky amber with no head. Aroma has some muddled seasonal spicy and slightly doughy. Flavor follows suit...even more muddled...some doughy caramel. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is spiced/bitter and dry.

Dacrza (635) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2012
glassware: Victory nonick...occasion: it’s a cold winter day--enough said...aroma: brilliant floral bouquet: clove and citrus mixed with malts is exciting...appearance: dark orange-brown body with a creamy white head that befits the winter snow outside...palate: creamy, warm rush of thick, full-bodied ale--easily palatable, though...taste: definite plum and marginal spices percolate in the teeth--fulfiiling and appropriate...overall: umlauts are always welcome in a beer’s name, and though they promise BOG taste, this brew delivers seasonably well....

60minuteman (1033) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Light brown color, very bubbly. Looks like soda water. Taste is fruity...mainly lemon, orange peel, banana, clove. Spicy and only slightly bitter. Highly drinkable.

cheap (4571) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Had this on tap at the 1 for the road. Looks a little darker than a pale lager, there is just a little tint of brown and orange in there. No head. Smell is gently spicy. Yes, some rude spices in there become more apparent as the session continues. Typical holidy spiced beer. Very little co2 but what is ther is somewhat creamy.
