Poured a pretty hazy deep gold with a wispy head. Nose of faint spice. I found that the spices lent themselves well with the style. Refreshing and still had that "holiday" feel to it.

Bottle. Murky light orange pour with a smaller white head. Christmas spices on top of a wheat beer - this is strange stuff. Not unpleasant, but not great either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
this beer had a hazy dull yellow and orange pour, the pour made a one finger white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, this drink left some spots and partial rings of lacing on the sides of the glass, the bottle had a ring (about 1/8Ē wide or less) of light and medium brown sediment on the bottom,
the aromas were wheat, orange fruit and vanilla with nutmeg spice in the background, faint floral and honey sweetness,
it had flavors of wheat, some bread malt, citrus and some spice that was more nutmeg than cinnamon,
the finish was dry,
the mouth feel was less than medium with nice carbonation on the tongue,
the spices were in the background and not overbearing which was good for me, this was a good beer but nothing about it makes me want to buy more, you may like it more than I did, I prefer a traditional Wit beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Two fingers of head, held well. Cloudy, medium straw colored body.
Smell a lot of spices: cinnamon, nutmeg and some citrus, but I canít place it. It smells festive.
Taste like orange and the above spices. The mildest of bitterness at the end.
Soft texture, surprising but nice. Medium body, low carbonation. Almost like sipping on a cloud.
Really not bad. Not my favorite style, but this one is put together well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy amber orange with a white tight soapy head that leaves a film. Aroma has spice like clove nutmeg and orange rind with yeast. Taste has strong nutmeg, clove and soft, but noticeable orange rind with a bread yeast finish. Palate is medium and chalky with a drying finish. A decent seasonable brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is a cloudy gold with a white head that leaves no lacing. The aroma is full of spices with what seems to be the nutmeg standing out. The taste is pretty subdued. The spices are gently blended in to what is pretty much your typical wheat beer. Itís nicely balanced and quite drinkable! Not bad!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not really sure what Sam Adams was aiming for here. Belgian wit is rather light for a winter beer, and this is a little too heavy for the style. Kind of a miss all around...
