Reminds me of a beer version of gluewein, with some of the same flavors. Cinnamon, nutmeg, with a dash of citrus and other spices. It’s like Christmas slapping you in the nose and mouth. With all the spice you can’t really detect the alcohol that much. It is very drinkable since the body is somewhat light for a beer like this and there is no bitterness. This might be one of my favorite Christmas/winter beers.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear reddish amber with moderate white head and lots of spots of lacing. Aroma is spicy - almost like Pumking mixed with Swedish Glogg. Taste is sweet with some bitterness but lots of spices in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. This one needs to be sipped, with alcohol noticeable. An interesting holiday brew, but I’m not sure If I’ll try this one again next year.

I was a little skeptical after their pumpking was so overpowering with spices but this one was just right. Nice spice aroma and taste, clear reddish color. Definitely a holiday favorite! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting. Poured deep garnet with lacy head. Very "deep" in the mouth. Heavy tasting. Good but could not have more then one.

It’s no pumking! Smells good, but tastes too much like liquid potpourri. Alcohol is smooth, though. Would not recommend.

Dark brown, nice head. Aroma is STRONG of spices and potpourri. Taste is OK, Palate.... not the greatest.

Poured from the bottle of a six pack to the pint glass. Pours a nice red-brown, the spices in this are over the top different. Southern Tier does the strong stuff well, and the specialty stuff too! On the first cold day this gets one very warm very fast, I almost wish there was some snow outside to go shovel, ALMOST!

11/11/2014. Dark brown with a tan head. Seasonal spicy aromas. Sweet, spicy with a bit of hops at the end. Very nice for the holidays, but one is plenty.

Poured from a bottle it is a medium dark brown with small tan head. Taste and aroma is spice and fruit. Full bodied with malty base and hops in the background. Thick and stout enough that you probably don’t want more than a couple but a nice beer for a chilly evening.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Sweet spicy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.
