DocLock (7861) - 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.

12 ounce bottle. Coudy yellow gold color. Small creamy white head. yeasty wheat malt nose with hints of citrus and nutmeg. Mild wheat flavor wih a touchof orange and spices. Very refreshing and light bodied. Overall, a tasty brew. Unique as winter seasonals go.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2012
The aroma is unimpressive with adjunct malt, dish water, and a hint of spice and yeast. The appearance is hazy gold with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall not bad and certainly drinkable but feels like just another macro.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2012
An unfiltered golden ale with a white head. It's an 'normal' white ale until the spices give it a solid boost. A warmer on a cool afternoon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

~Wheaty aroma with cinnamon, nutmeg and some citrusy notes. Some white pepper like spice in there as well and some banana. ~Pours a very hazy orange color with white creamy head that disappears. ~Bready citrusy spicy nutmeg flavor. Light citrus. A bit o the picy end with the nutmeg. ~light medium bodied, with med high CO2, lingering spice finish. ~ Enjoyable brew. I could drink a few of these. I like what the brewer was trying to do with Xmas spices, but think that the spice can be toned down a bit so we get some of the wonderful yeasty flavors.
