Rich golden pour, nice fluffy head. Wow, horchata blended with some spiked egg nog and that’s what this tastes like. Creamy, spiced and good!

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Pours lighter amber with a golden hue and light tan head. The aroma brings some lactose, big vanilla, and baked custard notes. The flavor brings the vanilla, sweet bread pudding, and as well as some notes of the Belgian yeast.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Orange-golden hue, dense white head, excellent lace. Cinnamon, vanilla, cookie dough, cream cheese icing, milky-sweet, Belgian yeast fruitiness. This is exactly how I wanted it to be. Splitting a bottle proved very enjoyable.

Very easy drinking 7% beer. It's pleasantly milky with strong notes of cinnamon and vanilla. It's a bit sweet, but I think that's a good thing. I will definitely buy this again.

Bottle shared at LeviLOL tasting. Really nice - huge vanilla and toffee in both the nose and the taste. Really nice.

Strong vanilla on the nose. Really sweet and tastes like an alcoholic cream soda. Nice little sour note on the finish.

Hazy orange-amber pour with a white head. Amazing cinnamon and vanilla aroma. Sweet malt, brown sugar, and a light fruitiness. The flavor has a great vanilla character and sweetness. Tons of cinnamon spiciness, sugar, and a bit of toasted bread.

Smells soapy initially, then fades to rice milk, spices, and vanilla. Interesting.
Plenty of cinnamon, milky without actually achieving the color and consistency expected, and vanilla starts to take over as the drink progresses. Cream soda. Weird, but damn, it works!
It's funny: it's entirely by coincidence that I'm drinking this with my brown friends who educated me on what traditional Or Xata actually is. Way cool.
