fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2012
2010 Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a huge, creamy beige head. Aroma is full of sweet bread spice and citrus zest, some fruity esters and light soapy notes. Flavor is big on coriander and cinamon up front, dusty grain, sweet malt, some orange peel, but it is not nearly as citrusy in taste as it is in aroma, a hint of vanilla and nice earthy nutmeg to the finish. Medium body, with a slick slightly booozy entry, small bubbled, but very blanketing and sharp carbonation. After blowing off all that foam, Im suprised that this had any carbonation left at all but it is actually rather harsh. Fairly tasty brew, the mouthfeel is not so great, but it has a really nice finish and aftertaste with, sweet bread spice and vanilla.

mrjez (507) - 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.

Im glad I tried it, in the company of 12 other beer nuts. Aroma of vegemite, taste of vegemite, with a hint of cheese and bread and a dash of soy sauce.
