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

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

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light gold body with a small fizzy white head that fade to a thin film. The nose is pretty nice, rather subtle on the spice with some nice wheat and yeastiness. Mostly cinnamon and orange peel coming across to me. The flavor is not especially exciting, but itís really drinkable and the spicing blends really well with the yeast and wheat. Light bodied and soft fizzy carbonation. This was actually really nice and able to drink in big gulps. This is one of the better Sam Adams beers Iíve had in a long time.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky witbier yellow with a creamy white crown. Aroma of cinnamon, wheat, coriander, pepper, yeast and bread. Taste is spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg, some coriander, pepper and grains and wheat in the background. Spicy finish.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottled. Terrible beer. Nothing like a wit at all, some light haze, but none of the customary flavors or aromas. Some adjunct malt sweetness. Just awful.

I didnít realize this was considered a Wit beer until I talked with my beer buddy Cheap. I assumed it was a spice brew. Pours unfiltered and cloudy, aroma of spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Clean crisp citrus taste, medium body, however, the spices overtake the taste of the beer. Overall a decent beer, finishes with a wrm spicy feel.
