Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus, and nuts. Taste is orange, nutmeg, and cinnamon and not much else. Kind of like eating some potpourri or something.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light hazy orange/yellow with a 1-finger white head. Aroma is very weak, but mostly of spices. Very sweet on the tongue, and taste is dominated by citrus and some spice. Sadly, there really isnít much to this beer. It is vastly inferior to the coffee stout it is replacing in the winter pack, and is a bland, forgettable beer in its own right.

Bottle thanks to my friend Mourty: Poured a hazy yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is full of spices such as cinnamon and coriander. Taste reminds me of ginger bread cookies with loads of very balancing spices. Seemed very festive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy darkish yellow with a little over a finger of thick white head. Aroma of banana, clove, a little citrus and some baking spices. Taste is light sweet. Clove, banana, cinnamon, wheat, christmas spices and a little citrus on the finish. Medium bodied with a somewhat thick and slightly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I would be happy to drink this one again.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Herbal and glossed with a tangy, citrus-fueled core, this Belgian white is studded with a vinegar-like flavor. Murky body and an innocuous nose round out this underwhelming "limited" offering. Ghastly.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours pale gold with a thick white head. Aroma and flavor are lots of spice (nutmeg and cinnamon) and orange peel plus some wheat notes. Pretty sweet. Comes off as a little flat. Thick, cloying mouthfeel. Not big on highly spiced winter ales, and this is pretty highly spiced.

Botte, poured cloudy pale gold. Some lite spice aromas, hard to tell. Mild nutmeg, cinnamon spice, mixed with orange. Makes me think of the holidays. Overall a little weak,, but still good.

A hazy orange color with a tall white head. Nose has a strong spice aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. A bit of wheat and sweet bread, some yeast, and mild citrus peel.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
