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

12 oz. Hazy orange-golden with a quarter inch of lasting cream. Nose is dry cracked wheat, lemon zest and a touch of nutmeg. Taste is similar with the nutmeg and lemon zest taking more of the lead on the wheat. Some orange flesh in there as well. Medium body is soft, well-balanced, and tingly-dry on the finish with the spices and acidity. Seems to be exactly what they set out to achieve. Not bad, but my taste buds seem to be overly sensitive to nutmeg and this one nearly approaches my limit.

SHIG (3541) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle thanks to my friend Mourty: Poured a hazy yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is full of spices such as cinnamon and coriander. Taste reminds me of ginger bread cookies with loads of very balancing spices. Seemed very festive.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours an average orange witha thick white head. Aroma is vegetable leftovers doused in nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is rotten-water melon with weak Christmas spices. Average mouthfeel. Shovel this one to the curb.

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.

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.

kidmartinek (3508) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Cloudy tangerine color with a white head thatís short-lived. Thick, yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Tastes like a BPA with a little gingerbread spice. Pretty good. Itís a bit thick, but thereís really not much else bad to say about it exept for the wimpy head.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. The nose on this has a lot more spices than I would expect. Itís a bit hard to drink because of that.. Not my style.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Cloudy yellow with a tall, white head. Scent is busy....banana, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg... Taste is yeasty, wheat and spices.. Crisp. Not TOO sweet, but close.
