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.

sonnycheeba (3570) - 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.

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.

jsquire (3479) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Golden beer with a short lived foamy white head. Light cinnamon spice nose with some orange notes. Light bready beer with some dry cinnamon and a bit of sour orange. Okay seasonal.

RobertDale (3477) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (3418) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from state line liquors. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Not a lot on the nose except a faint orange. Iím getting the orange peel but not much if the nutmeg or cinnamon. Lingers a bit of orange. Typical wit.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle; poured a ruddy, murky dark gold color with an off white head. Aroma of spices, orange, yeast and wheat. A bit medicinal at times, and a tad heavy on nutmeg; but a decent brew that matches the season well.

joeneugs (3263) - 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.

SrSilliGose (3260) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of chai tea, spiced bread, herbal doughy orange. Slighly vegetal dough taste with orangepeel and spice. Okay.

bytemesis (3228) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange yellow, medium white head, nice lacing. Aroma is wheat, coriander. Flavor is about the same, plus other spices. Nutmeg? Medium sweet with a bit of lemon zest bitterness. Medium body. Not bad. Not sure why it its getting so hammered here.
