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.

Very nice, traditional Christmas ale. Slightly spicy, but not too much. Somewhat bland.

rjmc64 (20) - Deer Park, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours a hazy light gold, with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is wheat and some citrus. Mouthfeel is medium to light. Nice wheat flavor followed by winter spices. Very drinkable.

Another from the winter sampler. Wheat and yeast nose. Taste has strong sweet Orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg. A fuller body than a typical wit, it’s decent.

keepersj12 (2761) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Sampled this with a bunch of Christmas beers which was probably unfair. Pours hazy yellow with a small head. Smells like a wit with not much to say christmas. Same as the flavor. Ok wit. Not much Christmas about it though.

Had a bottle at a 2014 Christmas party. Orange, coriander, nutmeg, yeast. Pretty good seasonal.

Lots of spice and it tastes nice. Better after a few. It does the trick. Nice on a cold night ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scoth (528) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours clear golden with a diminishing medium beige head, fine lacing. Aromas of biscuit, coriander, nutmeg, caramel, grass. Light body, smooth and creamy. Mildly sweet, a hint of citrus, mild bitter finish. The spice flavor is nicely subdued, but enough to keep it from being particularly quaffable. The normal witbier wheat and yeast notes are largely missing; it could pass for a golden ale.
