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.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Rated on 10-31-2013 (Bottle from Kroger’s Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a huge smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is wheat, malt, orange peel, citrus, sweet, and a suggestion of spice. The flavor is sweet, wheat, malt, orange peel, and lightly spicy. The mouthfeel is watery and thin and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a very watery and thin tasting beer. It has very little character and is bland tasting.

travita (4739) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Clear look, bigger foamy white head, and golden in color. The smell is wheat, very spiced, heavy and artificial like, and yeast. The taste is sweet, si heavily spiced to the point of icky, and sticky.

Cybercat (4736) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Pours clear, bubbly golden with a thick but not long-lasting snow-white head. Aroma presents yeasty and fruity notes, not strong but welcoming. Flavor is stronger and more complex, wheaty with hints of spice, citrus and - salt? Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz. Drink it at a party or while watching one of those timeless holiday specials for the umpteenth time.

bottle. Hazy gold with small head. Mildly spiced wheat beer. Pleasant but not particularly noteworthy.

ChainGangGuy (4705) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a solidly hazed, pale gold body with a thin, short-lived, white head.

Smell: Not just some pilsner and wheat malt, but also some pale malt in the mix. There’s no second guessing the spicing, you get the cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange peel.

Taste: Very light pale malt, the malted wheat and some pils with a soft breadiness and fair sweetness. The first few sips had me taken aback at the cinnamon and nutmeg spicing, but, eventually the tongue adjusted and it all kind of melded together, letting the citrus from the hops and added orange peel come forward a bit more. Finishes up a little sweet, a little spicy, and a little citrusy.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Feels fairly full for a witbier.

Overall: I think would take it over the ole Samuel Adams White Ale. Speaking of, is this its replacement? Gee, man, that’s gotta be rough, being laid off on the holidays. Poor White Ale. Thanks, Obama!

ajnepple (4702) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Pale, gold and hazy with a white head. Spices, cinnamon, citrus fruit, wheat malts and nutmeg. Light to medium body. Pretty refreshing spiced wheat beer.

nearbeer (4668) - 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.

Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma is of cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus and wheat. Taste is the same. Nice carbonation.
