3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like a typical wheat beer. Pours hazy orange with a minimal white head. Refreshing wheat flavors with a hint of citrus.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head with some lacing. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, winter spices, orange peel, And some yeast. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a light-medium finish wih a watery mouthfeel and a slighty dry, mostly sweet, short finish. Overall, a slighty above average witbier that might be a tad too sweet and over spiced.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of cinnamon, apple and nutmeg. Taste is smooth, light and sweet. Tastes a lot like egg nog actually. In a very pleasant way. Finishes light and refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours slightly hazy and light goold with little head. Slight sharp aroma of citrus or ginger. Taste is smooth and sweet. If you concentrate you can pick up a hint of banana at end of mouthfeel but not enough to improve this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, pours amber with average head. Tastes if malt and citrus, Christmas spices in this beer remind me very much of Harpoon Winter Warmer, likely where this recipe was inspired.

Really not many redeemable qualities about this beer. Weak aroma and a weird taste. Just pass.
