Pours a nice dark Amber/brown color. Tastes and smells like sweet (almost candies) peaches. There is some roasted nuttiness to the aftertaste along with the peaches.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very well made and very nice Christmas holiday offering in Bavarian and Austrian tradition. I’ll be coming back for this one seasonally.
Appearance: Direct pour Sam Adams glass at refrigerator temperature. Inviting peachy, amber, rosey caste with fosmy, fizzy semi-long lasting head.
Aroma: Peachy notes come through most for me.
Mouthfeel: Light but sturdy, slightly fizzy.
Aftertaste: Peachy on retro olfaction with slightly bitter finish. Flavors are more balanced when it warms a bit inthe glass.
Overall: Very drinkable and works well with lighter, sweeter, more complex food or desert pairing.

Lacking aroma. 12 ounce can. Light, crisp flavor but not a lot of distinctiveness. Maybe some cranberry and a little vanilla?

From a bottle into a glass. The pour has a lot of peaches, raisins, carmel nutty noyes with a clear dark ruby in appearence. With a medium body and I like for being different than other Xmas beers with a lot of spice flavors .

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear brown color, light head cover, no lace. Aroma is malt with a little pear in it. Interesting. Taste is again malt and pear. It coasts through a fizzy swallow to a lightly spiced, lightly bittered finish. Way better than I expected.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle, pours a rich amber with a thick bubbly off white head. Fruity aroma, like more of a pear cider than a Christmas beer. Taste is also fruity, mostly pear, some green apple, just a hint of holiday spice at the end. Overall smooth and light, not bad, but not what I would think of as a winter/holiday/Christmas beer.

Amazing Cranberry aroma. Smells like a good Christmas candle. Little head on a dark red body. Cranberry flavor up front with dry cereal. Great season brew!

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Danny! Has some very odd aromas and very odd flavors. Not very good.
