sonnycheeba (4129) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is orange, bread and cookie malt, wheat, oats, and light floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt dominate with some wheat and herbs and a heavy dose of orange towards the end; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

maxwelldeux (4128) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. The nose on this has a lot more spices than I would expect. It’s a bit hard to drink because of that.. Not my style.

RobertDale (4097) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and spice. Taste is wheat, citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices. Too many spices. Just OK.

nearbeer (4058) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2012
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.

TURDFERGUSON (4010) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle from SAMs. Cloudy yellow orange with foamy webby white head and lace. Nose is fairly dry and lightly spicy, some orange peel, light lemon. Flavor shows some cereal like malty flavors upfront, with light spice and a citrusy slick finish. Solid from Sammy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (4000) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Bottle at Ungstrup’s. Pours slightly hazy pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of flowers and nutmeg with subtle hoppy notes. Dark, sweetish and spicy aroma of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, hops and malt. Sweetish aftertaste. Nice.

joeneugs (3979) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark orange color with a tall white head. The aroma has some orange peel and light notes of baking spices. The flavor is the same. The body is a bit flabby for this style with a bit too much sweetness. The spices are well balanced though. Not a favorite, but a decent brew.
