Bottle. Nutmeg, cinnamon and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large white head. Strong nutmeg flavor dominates with wheat malt, light cinnamon/clove. Bitter orange peel finish. Not bad - extra spicy.

ScoWRee (388) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours like gold with a white foamy head. Aroma of wheat. Taste is a mess. Crisp citrus. Iím not getting the spice. Kind of watery. Not what I expected. Iím a huge Sam Adams fan. This one is not on the mark for me. Maybe I need to re-rate another time.

TomTron (386) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with a minimal white head. Aromas of orange peel and some spice, but very faint. Taste has a moderate amount of orange and citrus, but there is also a big spice presence including the nutmeg and cinnamon. Finishes a bit watery, but itís drinkable. Rather odd Belgian White. Looks like a wheat beer, but doesnít taste much like one.

Tmoney99 (10841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Poured cloudy amber color with a large frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, spice and citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium spice citrus sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

12oz. bottle. Beer pours a pale golden color. Not much of an aroma or head. Taste is full of orange with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg with a nice crisp finish. A very drinkable light holiday beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheBeerGod (5297) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a medium, frothy white head. Strong cinnamon and nutmeg in the aroma along with bold yeast notes and toasted wheat. Taste is cinnamon, wheat, yeast, nutmeg, light citrus and candied fruit. Body is medium with a strong, fizzy carbonation. Lingering cinnamon and nutmeg throughout. Ends with more cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted wheat, yeast notes, faint citrus, and hints of bubblegum.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2012
This was an interesting brew - the aroma was potent of aforementioned spices, and the orange scent was spicy and enticing. The taste was very yeasty and fruity, light of spices and tart with a finish of dry hops. Overall it was pretty damn sweet for the style, but very drinkable and very welcoming to the palate. Cheers!

Chudwick (2173) - 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 (366) - 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.

adnielsen (9287) - 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.
