Hazy gold with thin head. Aroma of orange and spices. Smooth and easy drinking. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poor interpretation of the style. Fake candy-like spice and aroma. Pours a yellowish straw color into the pint glass. Large white head that last for awhile. Aroma of lemon and orange with Christmas spices. Taste is bready malts with citrus zest and overwhelming amount of spices. Finish is acerbic and medicinal, fat malt on the tongue, not great.

P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish.
O- Lots of spice to this beer. Almost like a spiced up Blue Moon. Could use a little more citrus but still nicely done.

Slightly hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that evaporates steadily Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Citrus, wheat and spice in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy wheat, cinnamon and biscuit malt. The finish is sweet with a mildly spiced aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Lager glass. Lots of spices keeps the nose lively. Clear pale yellow has plenty of carbonation. Creamy carbonated mouth feel. Interesting blend of spices.

Don’t remember all the details as I drank this a few weeks ago. Very creamy in the mouth with a spicy flavor and aroma. I remember it being good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Interesting idea - pairing a witbier with Christmas spices. Medium bodied. A lot going on here. The orange flavor is really nice, but it seems muted and stays in the background. Tons of cinnamon and wheat - making it almost chewy in the mouthfeel. I would have preferred to simply drink a more traditional white ale with more citrus and a lighter body. Not a trainwreck but not a beer that I’ll pick up again.

Hazy wet golden with a filmy head, high carbonation and no lacing. Aroma of orange peel, wheat, cinnamon, spices, cloves and malts. Cinnamon and spices upfront with some oranges, wheat and malts. Moderate weighted palate and mild feeling carbonation. Pretty good!

Pours a slightly hazy light orange with a 2 finger head that leaves a thin white film as it dissipates. Nose has some nutmeg, orange peel and a strange, almost soapy, component. Taste has some spice, wheat...but a chalky type of finish. Drinkable, but wouldn't seek this out.
