Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and grain. Taste is similar to the aroma, with citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon. Has a mild bitterness and bit of lingering spice. Light body, smooth and sweet. Belgian Witbier is not very high on my list and the holiday spices to not enhance it any.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light hazy orange pour with a short white head. Nose has orange cream, slight clove, cinnamon, nutmeg. Average carbonation, chalky mouthfeel like cider, slightly dry finish, dries the teeth. Taste is light and watery, flavors of sour malt, orange citrus rind, belgian yeast, metallic euro hops ever so slightly, cloves and a hint of licorice too. Flavor average and unsurprising, not a good mouthfeel either, too watery.

12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark orange color with a tall white head. The aroma has some orange peel and light notes of baking spices. The flavor is the same. The body is a bit flabby for this style with a bit too much sweetness. The spices are well balanced though. Not a favorite, but a decent brew.

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold. Small head. I detected some fruit and spice notes, but I expected this to be a bit more flavorful than it was. Still, not bad.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This limited edition ale is a great addition to holiday beverages. It reminds me of a winter version of a pumpkin ale. It isn’t too spiced and the taste is perfect for a cool or warm day.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
