12 ounce bottle, best before March 2014. Oh well, better late than never! Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/amber color with a half inch off-white head that stayed around for a good amount of time. Thereís a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and some orange and orange peel. It tastes pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of some wheat/bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit coating with moderate carbonation. Not a bad brew, but I wish I would have been able to try this when it was fresher. Hopefully Iíll be able to this upcoming winter!

Pours a slightly cloudy orangeish color with white head. Spice, cinnamon, clove, and citrus fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Pretty simple, yet straight forward for a witbier.

swiseman (424) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
pours a pale yellow with thin white head. aromas of spice and alcohol. initial flavour is typical wit of subtle orange peel, but cloves are quite prominent. AS it warms up, the alcohol taste seems to strengthen and almost overpowers other flavours. As a big Sam Adams fan, I was a little disappointed with this one. Itís not bad for a "light" winter beer, but there are far better choices.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/6/14

Aroma: The aroma of this one is full of wheat, lemon, and lots of spice
Appearance: The pour is a murky gold-orange, with a fizzy off-white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of spice and lemon over wheat malt flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a lively-to-fizzy carbonation, and a spicy finish
Overall Impression: Somehow I waited until May to pull this from the fridge. I wasnít overly impressed by this beer. Thereís too much carbonation and too much spice for it to be particularly drinkable, and the flavors are only alright.

Golden colour with a very slight cloudiness and small lacy head. Warm flavour of cinnamon and nutmeg but not overpowering. Still has the taste of a wheat beer even with the spicing. (K)

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2014
bottle - this brew has a spicy, citrus aroma. It tastes very sweet with nutmeg and a hint of orange apparent. Itís medium bodied with a sweet, spicy finish. While okay, I thought it would be better with the sweetness toned down some.

Nice and iteresting to drink. Very smooth and soft, not too sweet and nice cloudy features there.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Got as part of the Christmas season variety pack. I usually enjoy this style, but something about this is funky. Not sure if it is the cinnamon or nutmeg, but something kinda ruins this beer.

Bottle: Pours a golden-orange color, translucent, and topped with a finger of creamy beige head. Nice amount of spice in the nose, but a little too much orange peel in the taste. More spice presence that I can qualify as sessionable. OK.

Not good looking not good smelling or tasting. Any flavor disappears quick very similar to other beers from this brewery. Not a fan.
