3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12/17/13 Alluring Belgian scent of banana, spice, and clove. Decent appearance, a hazy copper. The feel was a silky, medium bodied texture. The flavor began well with spice and clove over a fruity hop, but ended a bit bitter and stale.

Bottle. Enjoy before: 04/14. A hazy pale amber pour with a thick and fluffy off-white head. The wheaty aroma features some light caramel, oranges, citrus rinds, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coriander. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. The taste starts with a little wheat, some bananas, and a touch of caramel. Tangy orange juice, sour lemons, and citrus rinds are present at the end. The aforementioned spices are noticeable throughout. Poor quality.

Hazy pour. Little aroma. Bread-like base ale. Nice spice flavor, primarily cinnamon. Short-lived aftertaste.

From the winter variety pack at Costco. The orange, cinnamon and other spices (nutmeg?) kind of drown out the white ale quality. Still, nice for this time of year.

Ew! Bad, weird, watery, malty, spices. Just avoid. Waste of a beer bottle. Not worth your time.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy Golden color worth a slightly off-white had. Chorus aroma, combined with nutmeg. Flavor was a bit too sour for my taste, and listed way to long. Funny thing was, the first one was good, but the more I drank, the less I liked it.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unlike most holiday brews, this is a light, refreshing witbier that really clears the palate after all the porters, stouts, and what-not! This beer smells like Christmas with a one-two-three punch of cinnamon, clove, and coriander. Tastes like Christmas at first sip, but goes down a delicious witbier. Very sweet, but not icky. Really nice and refreshing.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Pours hazy honey golden. Nose is orange peel, some nutmeg, coriander. Taste largely matches nose, moderately spiced mostly with nutmeg and coriander, cinnamon, a bit of orange peel, not much wit character underneath the spicing. Surprisingly decent body underneath, but overall a bit bland.
