12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and spice. Taste is wheat, citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices. Too many spices. Just OK.

12 ounce bottle poured a hazy light yellow color with aromas of citrus, coriander, spice, and some light wheat. Flaovrs are the same, light spiciness in the aftertaste, decent witbeer overall.

Wheat, spice and musk aroma. Hazy cloudy yellow. Taste is a mix of watery, sharp, and spicy... wheaty but lacks the cleanness of a good wit. Palate does not present well but is mostly the spices. Worth a try but would not buy again

Hazy orange with a bit of white head. Aroma is sweet with mild citrus and spices. Taste is the same, and finishes with spiced banana esters.

Bottle pour of a dark hazy off yellow with a thin disappearing white head. Main aroma hay, wheat that leads into a very faint spice and light citrus. Taste of bigger winter spice that is brought out by the lively body with a lingering of the same cinnamon and nutmeg. Overall drinkable beer that has winter spice notes that pair well with the lively body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light perfume and floral wheat aroma. Cloudy dark yellow color with a large white head. Moderate sweet wheat beginning with a bitter chewy palate finish.

Iím not a big fan of the spice combination. A decent beer with a nice flavor and hop profile.

2/13/13. 12oz bottle from... somewhere... Iím thinking Warehouse in Albany. Lonely tick lingering in my fridge. Lightly hazed orange pour with a thick, tight off-white head that cuts in half but seems to stick and laces okay. Dammit, I didnít know what this was until I took a sniff and then looked at the commercial description... holiday spices... ugh. Big whiff of nutmeg et. al in the aroma... reminds of pumpkin beers. I hate spiced pumpkin beers. Thereís also a touch of sweet orange and some wheat character. Spiced flavor as well, again nutmeg et. al, with a bit of pale malts, wheat, a citrus tang, and some orange sweetness. Ehhhhh.

I actually like the aroma here, comes off as tart citrus almost defying style. Nice opaque gold but with a real small tight head. Some lacing. Taste is initially good, but the sort of luxurious wheat quality get muddled by spices. I would never buy this.

Pours a cloudy gold with a two finger head that fades quickly. Aromas of spice and orange are very faint. Taste has small hints of cinnamon and citrus. Palate is weak. Watery. Overall this is not a must try. I swear these brewers make these beers as filler for their variety packs. Taste almost like a watered down pumpkin beer. Blah.
