Poured with little to no head, a hazy straw color with a small ring and minor lacing. Aroma is peach with some wheat and citrus. Taste is somewhat sweet with a sharp punch of spice that fades quick. Doesnít come across screaming "winter" or "Christmas", so I was a little disappointed.

12 oz. Hazy orange-golden with a quarter inch of lasting cream. Nose is dry cracked wheat, lemon zest and a touch of nutmeg. Taste is similar with the nutmeg and lemon zest taking more of the lead on the wheat. Some orange flesh in there as well. Medium body is soft, well-balanced, and tingly-dry on the finish with the spices and acidity. Seems to be exactly what they set out to achieve. Not bad, but my taste buds seem to be overly sensitive to nutmeg and this one nearly approaches my limit.

Iím a big Sam Adams fan and Iím disappointed by this one. Not at all what I think a winter beer should be. Sour tasting and very fizzy. Not my favorite flavor profile.

Bottle from Kroger. Hazy, light pour with a big white head. Aroma is citrus, baking spice, and apples. Taste is banana, heavy nutmeg, and a gingerbready awkwardness that goes through the finish.

Pours a hazy gold, with white head. Aroma of spice. Taste is sort of a spiced up white beer, with a touch of citrus in there too.. Well enough blended, but not one that Iíll need to have much more of. Ehhh....thumbs sideways on this.

Little head mostly diminishing light gold color cloudy fruity aroma spice and orange flavor light body, kind of like a lighter sweeter version on the winter lager.
