Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, hoppy and malty. Big winter spices on the nose and flavor. Easy finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz poured into a large ommegang stemmed glass, pours a bright orange, head is medium bodies and retains a good while, aroma is xmas spices everywhere, orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, and the like, christmans in a glass somewhat, but this is not a thick and lavish brew, as this white alley is quite friendly on the pallate and allows for an easy drinking experience. The wheat flare is rather boring, not really filering off from a standard version of any type, but the magic here lies within the hops meld in with the spices and almost forifies drinking a spiced tea while watching the holidays slip by you. Fun, fresh, and delightful, this beer adds the direct xmas flare to the mix pack and cushions one with spices galore.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a dark gold color with a small white head. The nose smells like a holiday spiced Wit. Light and crisp on the palate with light wheat notes, a hint of cinnamon, and orange. The winter season just doesnít scream "holiday wit" to me. Sam, whatís up with the weak winter offering???

marv3mania (176) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass. Appearance is a hazy orange-tinted golden color with a moderate white head. Aroma is funky malts, orange, banana, and some light spices. Taste is a weird mix of holiday spices and the wheat-y malt. Super crisp feel. This a really strange beer, and not necessarily in a good way.

Salamiwami (50) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Golden colored beer that has a nice citrus aroma. Lacks any real spiced flavors but tastes good anyway. Wheat body with orange hints makes it taste very similar to their summer ale.

EtTuCthulhu (992) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2013
This beer sits as an opaque dark golden color in the glass, but, unfortunately, the medium white head fades fairly quickly. The aroma has a mixture of strong citrus (lemons and oranges) with an undercurrent of cinnamon peeking out, and the taste is an interesting mixture: there is an undeniable sweetness as soon as the liquid hits your tongue followed by a slightly umami flavor containing a hint of sourness. However, the mouthfeelís mixture of a full body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish actually makes the taste really appealing, enhancing the robus tail end instead of the sweet initial flavor.

jcnielsen (1985) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Very spicy, nutmeg, cinnamon, wheat aromas. Again, very spicy in flavor with cinnamon and nutmeg. Not bad, but Iím not really digging the spices in this beer much.

jehoesefat (265) - Poway, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Smells like a typical wheat beer. Pours hazy orange with a minimal white head. Refreshing wheat flavors with a hint of citrus.

Stuedmaster (196) - Vista, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
This appears to be a basic, run of the mill witbier from itís appearance, aroma, and taste. It has nice, clean aromas of orange peel and spices, although I donít detect the cinnamon or nutmeg. It is certainly refreshing and thirst quenching, but there isnít anything that sets it apart from other witbiers.
