A very beutiful beer with a dark amber color and a beutiful lasting head. The aroma is very fruity (almost like an ale) and also sweet and spicy. It has a very filling taste with a very complex sweetness - itís very hard to tell that its been brewed on wheat malt - there are some smoked and caramel notes contained. And it ends on a nice bitterness that lingers. All in all a very fine beer.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Dark chestnut color with a rocky off-white head. Slightly sweet, the various winter spices shine through. No one spice dominates and all mesh nicely. A slight rise in bitterness near the swallow keeps you coming back for another sip. A medium-bodied, easy drinking, winter beer equally at home by itself or with heartier dinner fare.

Clear and deep amber, with minimal head. Very malty aroma and flavor. Mostly caramel, with hints of vanilla. Wheat is detectable, but only nominally.

Cloudy brown in color, small head and little lacing. Aroma was malty, maybe some hints of apples. Flavor seems weird to me, like sour apples almost. I donít know if it was a bad tap or not, though - may call for a re-rate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good beer. Not too sweet, a hint of spice and a little alcohol in the background. Nice looking beer. Nice doughy aroma while pouring that changes to a spicy, malty smell after sitting in the glass for a few minutes. Nice looking beer, medium-dark red with a nice beige head. The finish could be better. A good but forgettable beer.

Great chestnutty color. Head is nice and rich. Smells like Sam Adams Boston Lager at Santaís house. Traces of ginger and orange in this one. Because Iím particular to malty beers, this one leaves no room for improvement in my book.
