Sampled thanks to kristen bringing home the christmas pack this year :) Pours a semi hazy straw with good white head. The aroma is a bit boring wheat. But the flavor brings the spices and orange peel. Iíd be interested to try this next to their white ale and see the difference? Finish of bitter lemon pith.

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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Hazy dark golden with a head that lingers as a white ring. Light citrus and spice aroma, and the spice, esp. the nutmeg, comes out more strongly in the flavor. Lingering notes deepen that sense. Moderately fizzy, but tight as well. Reasonable, drinkable. Bottle.

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.

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.
