Bottled. Terrible beer. Nothing like a wit at all, some light haze, but none of the customary flavors or aromas. Some adjunct malt sweetness. Just awful.

Get a faint orange in the aroma but mostly it’s wheat, from the first aroma to the last drop. A nice loft to it, but one is enough due to the heavy wheat body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy pale gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface leaving no lacing. Cinnamon and sweet citrus aromas. Dry with sweet yeast and caramel upfront turning to cinnamon and nutmeg in the lasting earthy bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
Somehow I waited until May to pull this from the fridge. I wasn’t overly impressed by this beer. There’s too much carbonation and too much spice for it to be particularly drinkable, and the flavors are only alright.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of light spices, a little wheat, hints of hops, and light malts. Flavor the same, with everything pretty light. Light to average texture. Not bad but not great.

Almost clear gold, medium white head, standard Sam label and bottle. Musty, cinnamon aroma. Light spice, some mineral flavors, lightly bittered, a little sweet, light diacetyl. Medium body. Leftover from the office Christmas party.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks like I liked this more than most. Pours cloudy yellow / orange with a large soapy off-white head. The aroma has lots of spiciness (cinnamon jumps out most), orange peel, smooth wheat, powder and an overall dryness. Medium smooth body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a gentle spice blend (lots present, but it’s not harsh) balance by rich smooth wheat. The finish has light plasticy taste, but not too big. Large amount of nutmeg and cinnamon that lingers. Nice unique holiday beer.

12 ounce bottle poured a hazy light yellow color with aromas of citrus, coriander, spice, and some light wheat. Flaovrs are the same, light spiciness in the aftertaste, decent witbeer overall.
