12-oz bottle. Pours a very dense and hazy dark gold color. Slight, fading fine-bubble white head. Spicy aroma of nutmeg. Medium body with effervescent mouth-feel. Slight citrusy character matched with dry nutmeg notes. Overall, wheaty, well-carbonated with supporting spice and zesty notes. OKAY.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2012
12oz bottle. Unfiltered yellow-tan body with a thin, white head. Cinnamon dominate overspiced aroma. Wow, this is 100% overspiced, reminds me of some of the more awkward US saisons from a few years back. Whereas a good Wit is subltle and delicate, this is heavy-handed and brutal. Lacks any semblance of balance...the spices kill it. Try again.

Hazy yellow, white head. Nose cinnamon, spice, ginger, and gum drops. Easy palate, heavy spices, followed by cinnamon, wheat, and light fruit.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid straw colored toward orange with 1-finger frothy white head. Nose is spicy orange zest, coriander, hopcitrus, Tastes semi-sweet, with upfront notes of orange zest, malt, and then a spice medley kicks in, with the coriander and x-mas spices hitting the tongue. This one is unique, although not terribly complex.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Pours a light hazy golden. Aroma is wheaty and cinnamon nutmeg forward, some light citrus and yeast. Flavor is hmmmm well overly spiced for the style. So much cinnamon and nutmeg and even clove notes that the subtlety of the style is gone. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

Dark orange color with a large, quickly falling head. Strong ginger aroma with a solid nutmeg backing. Strong wheat flavor, lots of nutmeg. Light cinnamon. Heavy carbonation.
