Pours a light hazy orange/yellow with a 1-finger white head. Aroma is very weak, but mostly of spices. Very sweet on the tongue, and taste is dominated by citrus and some spice. Sadly, there really isnít much to this beer. It is vastly inferior to the coffee stout it is replacing in the winter pack, and is a bland, forgettable beer in its own right.

Nice white ale with not so subtle hints of spice. Clearly a beer for the masses, this beer does nothing extraordinary, but it is quite drinkable with a large holiday meal.

scottw86 (1119) - Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Poured a slightly hazy orange/yellow color with a frothy white head that stayed. Aroma has lots of coriander with a touch of banana. Maybe a bit of clove and nutmeg too. Taste is very creamy with oranges and wheat. Finish has lots of spice like cinnamon and nutmeg. A little bit of a cardboard flavor, and not enough carbonation. Overall itís a nice creamy flavorful beer.

Bottle - Pours a slightly hazy light yellow. Wheat beer aroma. Starts like a wheat beer then a too sweet taste. Not so good.

jmohno (1123) - Iowa, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Hazed light orange/gold , somewhat bubbly. Short but creamy froth. Soapy spice aroma, orange and nutmeg. Would have guessed ginger and lemon and not cinnamon though. Wheat malt.Tartness and citrus comes out as it warms. Good beer not big on the spices, although they were not overwhelmingly spiced, thatís a plus. Good malt.

Gold pour. Lasting foamy white head. Grain and cinnamon on the nose. Itís sweet with notes of grain, cherry, sugar plum, and spice. Really smooth carbonation.

bennetporter (24) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2014
This spiced unfiltered white ale is generally drinkable but leaves something to be desired. Everything is about the spices, which are not overpowering, but are the center of the aroma and taste, and seem to outweigh the malt and what bittering hops there are. As an unfiltered beer, its appearance is cloudy, with a rather unappealing dirty yellow color. This is an unassuming beer, providing nothing in the way of enjoyment, but little unpleasantness either.

Cloudy yellow color , medium white head. Wheat , orange and spices in aroma. Wheat malt and cinnamon dominates in sweet taste. Decent seasonal.
