From 12oz bottle to tumbler. Pour is a hazy yellow, thin white active head. Nose is intense, lots of orange peel, coriander, spices. Taste is light bodied, sweet with some sour also mixed in. Finishes very carbonated. Decent beer, just kind of simple.

EithCubes (4753) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Nose of wheat with cinnamon and tons of nutmeg, light citrus and grain. Hazy pour has the whole spectrum from yellow to orange and a creamy, dense eggshell head that laces. Oily, malty medium body with only light carbonation, a crackery resolves, and nice fruity and phenolic highlights to complement the orange and spices. Sweet with a little tang and less bitterness. The subtle cherry splashes here help nudge my impression to that of a holiday beer, but regardless this oneís just way too gaudy.

JustPlainLogan (52) - Galveston, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2013
From the winter sampler: Pours out a hazy, almost orange amber with a thick white head. Aroma is very faint flowery. Flavor is crisp, light citrus that follows up with a spice regimen that belongs in a holiday pie. Very light for a winter beer, but a good brew.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Lots of cinnamon and nearly as much nutmeg in the aroma, toasted wheat, sweet, mellow citrus and a touch of bread. Flavor is sweet floury wheat up front, then strong, almost warm cinnamon, dried orange peel and a little earthy, spicy, nutty nutmeg to the finish. Light to medium body with a mostly neutral, somewhat syrupy and oily feel, light to medium, blanketing and slightly sharp carbonation. Not really my kinda thing, but not bad, I could see it going well with some winter festivities and some sweet dessert breads.

Bottle. Pours an orangish yellow, minimal clouding. White wheat. Aroma is very spicy for this style, so much so itís hard to even classify it in this category for me. That being said- aroma is spices- nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, also oranges and lemon. Taste is sweet with spices. Very enjoyable beer.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $14.99 for a winter variety 12-pack Purchased: Nov. 1, 2013 Consumed: Nov. 1, 2013 Misc.: Enjoy by March 2014 Poured an orange hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of off-white head. Sporadic spots of lacing along the sides of the glass. Average retention on the top. Smelled a lot of different notes combined into one. Got orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, molasses and even a bit of pumpkin. Some other wintry spices in there as well. Tasted a lot like the smell, but a little lighter. Got orange peel, nutmeg, cinnamon, molasses, gingerbread, cinnamon sticks and honey wheat . Light-to-medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long finish. I really enjoyed this one. Iíd definitely have it again. Just a lighter winter beer.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 31, 2013
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty mild malt and mild wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow herbal aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild lager mild wheat mild hops herbal and crisp. An OK brew just nothing special.
