Pours a lovely amber with a mottled, frothy, white head and steady streams of rising bubbles. Smells like holiday baking with notes of cinnamon, clove, and citrus. Taste is sweet and pleasant although unremarkable. Medium body, soft carbonation, spice finish. Nice beer.

Bottle at a party. Pretty decent for a wit. Lots of spice and flavor. I like it better than some.

Hazy honey brown with a fizzy small white head. Smells simple.. of Belgian yeast and citrus. Tastes like Christmas... cinnamon, nutmeg.. a warm simple spicy. I like it.

Smooth, distinct spice kick, light malt and citrus. The finish tails off nicely, not too thin. Very nice Winter choice.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 12oz. Bottle from winter mix 12 pack. Hazy gold pour with white head. Nice thick mouth feel being unfiltered. Very spicy both smelling and tasting. Taste brings out the Orange more than scent. Crisp and delicious.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured deep golden with a nice white head. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon and malts. Taste of spice and wheat. Not bad and well balanced but maybe a bit bland.

Bottle from the winter sampler box. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange copper coler thats bright and has a shiny sparkling head. Smells of spices and nutmeg . A little too sweet for me. Kind of tastes artificial but I see what they were trying to go for

Not a big fan of this one. A white beer that, in my opinion, was spoiled by the added spices which were ok (at best) at first, but less and less tolerable as the drinking continued. I won’t seek out this one again.

Very smooth no strong after taste or strong flavors. Spices in nose and very warming.

Part of their Winter Favorites 12-pack for winter 2013. Pours a hazy golden-yellow colour (gets cloudier at last pour). The warm cap has a decent retention and creamy lace. Wheat malts with the orange notes and light spices. Wet mouthfeel with a little stickiness. The cinnamon is a little more present in the taste, with the orangy wheatness. Refreshing spiced white beer, but nothing too crazy.
