SDalkoholic (2135) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle from Bobar: Poured a neon glowing yellow with a ton of sediment haze while a thick fluffy topping of foam rested on top. Aroma is faint and seems to have faded away with time and seeing how this beer is 2 months past its expiration date, it has stood quite well with hints of wheaty malts and orange peel. The flavor brings out more traces of spices such as cinnamon and ginger bread flavors that despite the old age of this beer, they have complimented the Belgian witbier into a unique Christmas style beer. Too bad I never saw this during X-mas time because I might have enjoyed it when it was fresher.

NormLovesBeer (19) - Hampton, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a hazy and cloudy pale Yellow in color. Has a nice medium-size foamy head with good lacing on the glass. Foamy head dies down after a few sips though. Has VERY LIGHT carbonation that lasts until about the last sip. LOTS of Cinnamon and Nutmeg visibly floating around in the glass, and at the bottom of the glass!! Aroma is very light and faint, but is a slight aroma of Bread and a hint of Wheat. Taste is a little sweet, but not overpowering. A little light and watery, but you can really taste the Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Orange!! You can taste more Cinnamon and Nutmeg in this beer than in Samuel Adams "Ole Fezziweg" which is suppose to be their "Christmas" beer. Maybe this one should be their new "Christmas" beer. This beer would also be good around October when Fall kicks in and the cooler weather arrives!!

SamP01 (544) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours a hazy pale golden yellow with a medium off white head. Aroma and Taste of sweet biscuit malt, wheat, yeast, with some light spicy fruity notes and some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a combination of sweet malt, wheat, yeast with some light spicy fruity flavor and mild bitterness, slight nutty flavor on the end. Overall a good drinking session ale.

Pretty good for a wit. Also interesting to turn this into a holiday specialty brew.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Sampled on 4/16/2103. This Witbier pours a medium orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy with orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. A medium to light bodied wit bier. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and sweet. Decent carbonation. The spices compliment and help offset the fruitiness and sweetness. Crisp and clean. Very drinkable. A somewhat different winter ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
