SHIG (3797) - 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.

Bamsen78 (3753) - 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.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Cloudy tangerine color with a white head that’s short-lived. Thick, yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Tastes like a BPA with a little gingerbread spice. Pretty good. It’s a bit thick, but there’s really not much else bad to say about it exept for the wimpy head.

joeneugs (3740) - 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.

Nuffield (3740) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2012
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.

patrick767 (3696) - 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. It’s medium bodied with a sweet, spicy finish. While okay, I thought it would be better with the sweetness toned down some.

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.
