3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a ruddy, murky dark gold color with an off white head. Aroma of spices, orange, yeast and wheat. A bit medicinal at times, and a tad heavy on nutmeg; but a decent brew that matches the season well.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 12oz bottle into pint glass. Hazy gold color with orange-ish hue and thin white head. Aroma is whit sweetness and spices, mostly cinnamon and some nutmeg. Wheat flavor and spices went together well for me. Light body, easy holiday drinking. Not bad.

This was okay. The sweetness of a wit with the spices of a wit. If spicing had been more aggressive and backed by some hoppy bitterness, this would’ve been better, but it is definitely drinkable. Tried at Neil’s in 2012.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy straw, with a white head. Some aroma of wheat, and some weak spice (nutmeg?). Crisp, indeed, but too light for me.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Light colored hazy brew with small white head. Aroma of wheat, spice. Taste is wheat / wit with a bit of spice in the finish. IMO, the wheat and spice don’t get along too well.

I agree with the reviews that say Christmas spices + wheat beer === strange. I did find it an interesting experiment, not revolting, but probably won’t buy more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with minimal white head. Aroma of cinnamon and oranges. Interesting flavor, with wheat and yeast character of this beer mixing with the orange and cinnamon notes. Light and smooth finish. Nice holiday beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a pretty hazy deep gold with a wispy head. Nose of faint spice. I found that the spices lent themselves well with the style. Refreshing and still had that "holiday" feel to it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Murky light orange pour with a smaller white head. Christmas spices on top of a wheat beer - this is strange stuff. Not unpleasant, but not great either.
