5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2012
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?

radagast83 (6102) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a hazy orange color with a small white head. Aroma was orange, with various spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). Caramel, malt, and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor was spice bomb, way too spicy - strange citrus notes. This didnít work for me.

Mora2000 (6100) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2013
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.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2012
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)

Pailhead (6017) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate nutmeg, light cinnamon, citrus, and a touch of orange peel. It pours a hazy orangish-gold with a two finger orange tinged off-white head that has decent retention. There is some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus/orange. The finish has moderate nutmeg, light cinnamon, and a hint of orange peel. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, I like wheat beers and I like spiced beers, so I found this to be pretty tasty. I would throw this in the Spiced category as itís the spices that are front and center over the Belgian Wit characteristics.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-golden color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and wheaty with touches of nutmeg and coriander. The flavor was dry and musty with notes of nutmeg, coriander and dust. Medium length nutmeg and coriander finish. Medium body. Disappointing.
