Draft. Dark ruby with no head. Aroma is heavy on the coriander. Taste is cherries and wheat. The other spices are a little subdued. Nice luxurious palate. Not terrible but sort of a strange combination of elements. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mrjez (508) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle rated back in Feb, adding now. Has that familiar Kiuchi wheat and spice flavour, mixed with some sweetned malt, fruit, charred brown sugar. Very bready, almost like gingerbread with the nutmeg note. Carries alcohol warmth, lively carbonation. A lovely winter-time sipper.

DandyWolfFloyd (1169) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Aroma - has some alcohol and spice - more muted than I would have suspected. Appearance - body is honey amber colored. The head starts at 1 1/2 and slightly off-white, the head fades to a small bit of foam. Taste - moderately sweet, with a little Christmas associated spice - allspice, nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon. There is a bit of a Grand Marnier orange and some bits of honeyed malt. Palate - body is medium, texture somewhat oil and slick, carbonation is average almost soft. The finish has a spicy bit of bitterness and a twinge of alcohol.
