Chudwick (1981) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12oz bottle - pours cloudy orange with thin white head and thin lacing. Nose is wet straw. Flavor adds orange peel and dough. Mildly sweet and a tad bitter. A light witbier but hides the ABV well. Would be good with sugar cookies or when devouring a gingerbread house.

Onionkid (361) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is weak. Taste is heavily spicy and has hints of zest and hops. The nutmeg in particular is kinda overbearing, almost canít stand it. I like the finish to it though, and overall it isnít all that awful. I suspect the score on here will rise quite a bit as more drink it. 5.8% alcohol.

TwoSipDip (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket in Fort Collins. Pours a cloudy golden orange appearance with a white head. Very spicy, nutmeg, huge orange peel, a bit yeasty, a bit herbal aroma. Chewy, big orange peel, zesty cinnamon, nutmeg bready, citrusy flavor. A lot seems to be overdone in this beer but overall, itís not that hard to drink.

dwyerpg (4507) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Get a faint orange in the aroma but mostly itís wheat, from the first aroma to the last drop. A nice loft to it, but one is enough due to the heavy wheat body.

maxwelldeux (3487) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. The nose on this has a lot more spices than I would expect. Itís a bit hard to drink because of that.. Not my style.

sonnycheeba (3357) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is orange, bread and cookie malt, wheat, oats, and light floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt dominate with some wheat and herbs and a heavy dose of orange towards the end; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Cloudy golden. Fast, white head. Aroma: Wheat, clove, spice. Flavor: Wheat, clove, mutmeg, ginger. Somewhat complex blend of spices. Spiced finish that was somewhat bitter. Itís a good beer but nothing great.

Ericular (565) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2012
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.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow/orange with white head. Aroma is pleasant, notes of citrus, clove, light nutmeg, cinnamon. Flavor is much the same with a nice malt backbone, light sweetness. Light-medium, soft body with high carbonation. I enjoyed!
