Bottle. Hazy orange yellow, medium white head, nice lacing. Aroma is wheat, coriander. Flavor is about the same, plus other spices. Nutmeg? Medium sweet with a bit of lemon zest bitterness. Medium body. Not bad. Not sure why it its getting so hammered here.

12 oz bottle from the winter variety pack. Pours a cloudy cantalloupe hue with a dissipating white head. Aroma consists of coriander, christmas spices, as described. Taste is sweet and full of spices, savory, wheaty; ends on a lightly tart note. Body is thin, carbonation moderate. I thought this was pretty good. Underrated.

Pours cloudy gold with a light head, its Aromas are dominated by citrus and cinnamon. Taste is tangerines or candied orange with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon at the end. It was very smooth with good carbonation and went well with spicey tacos.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate nutmeg, light cinnamon, citrus, and a touch of orange peel. It pours a hazy orangish-gold with a two finger orange tinged off-white head that has decent retention. There is some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus/orange. The finish has moderate nutmeg, light cinnamon, and a hint of orange peel. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, I like wheat beers and I like spiced beers, so I found this to be pretty tasty. I would throw this in the Spiced category as itís the spices that are front and center over the Belgian Wit characteristics.

Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma of wheat, a corn like aroma, corriander, and a light brown sugar. Flavor is corriander, sweet wheat, and some spices I donít know. A bit thin and fizzy but ok for the style/beer that it is.

Pours a hazy golden color with little head. Aroma is light, mostly wheat. There is a lot of wheat, a light spice and a lot of musty orange peel. The peel is strong and not mixing with the hops at all. Medium light on the palate.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ar: Peaches and banana - orange peel, clove, and a bit of clean malt.
Ap: Cloudy gold - medium-large white head with pretty good retention, leaving a medium-small cap of foam.
T: Some light clean malt up front - clove, orange peel, and ginger - the spicing tastes sort of stale and dull - spicy finish, with some banana, low bitterness.
P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: No huge flaws, but the flavors just donít come together and, overall, the beer doesnít taste very fresh and bright.
