2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2/13/13. 12oz bottle from... somewhere... Iím thinking Warehouse in Albany. Lonely tick lingering in my fridge. Lightly hazed orange pour with a thick, tight off-white head that cuts in half but seems to stick and laces okay. Dammit, I didnít know what this was until I took a sniff and then looked at the commercial description... holiday spices... ugh. Big whiff of nutmeg et. al in the aroma... reminds of pumpkin beers. I hate spiced pumpkin beers. Thereís also a touch of sweet orange and some wheat character. Spiced flavor as well, again nutmeg et. al, with a bit of pale malts, wheat, a citrus tang, and some orange sweetness. Ehhhhh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: † Hazy straw in color, moderate foamy white head, spotty lacing. † Orange peel and corriander up front, but also some cinnamon and nutmeg. † Belgian Wit crossed with Pumpkin? † I guess I think Pumpkin with the cinnamon and nutmeg, but I guess given the timing I will try and think of it as some sort of holiday cookie. † Feels a bit wheaty, body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Finishes just as it started, flavor from start to finish, citrusy, corriander, nutmeg, and cinnamon. † Interesting combination. † To me its like a combination of summer and autumn, but I will overlook that and think about the label... white christmas. † Who the hell doesnít want a white christmas?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, full-bodied, light-colored golden-orange, the head substantial and pock-marked. The initial whiff is of an herb garden. This drinks with quite the complement of herbal character, yet is still light and easy to drink. Nice option for the holidays. (#4871, 12/26/2012)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 4/16/2103. This Witbier pours a medium orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy with orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. A medium to light bodied wit bier. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and sweet. Decent carbonation. The spices compliment and help offset the fruitiness and sweetness. Crisp and clean. Very drinkable. A somewhat different winter ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy straw color with a white head. The aroma is full of cinnamon and nutmeg, with a bit of wheat thrown in. The flavor is very similar. The cinnamon is what comes through the most, but there is a bit of ginger and nutmeg as well. I donít get much wheat since the beer is dominated by the spices. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy orange with white head, aroma is odd but like the description, some notes of wheat with lemon, orange, slight biscuit notes but right away goes into ginger and cinnamon, some clove as well. Taste is just as odd, with some slight clove, ginger, and cinnamon, mixing into sweet fruits with some white grape, slight peach, lemon, and orange, finishing fairly sweet, drying out a touch from the spices. Interesting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
