Hazy golden amber color with a good sized fizzy head that didnt last very long. light aroma is sweet citrus, wheat and coriander. Flavor is sweet and spicy with a slight doughy malt background. Medium bodied with a doughy banana bread finish. These holiday spiced beers arent exactly my favorite but this one works better than most because the spice isnt too overwhelming.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle from the 76 station in Davis, CA. Pours a hazy yellow color and smells of Christmas spice. Tasted of nutmeg and cinnamon. Just not big enough and full flavored for my taste. Nice brew though.

RobertDale (5798) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and spice. Taste is wheat, citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices. Too many spices. Just OK.

Wheat, spice and musk aroma. Hazy cloudy yellow. Taste is a mix of watery, sharp, and spicy... wheaty but lacks the cleanness of a good wit. Palate does not present well but is mostly the spices. Worth a try but would not buy again

Hazy orange with a bit of white head. Aroma is sweet with mild citrus and spices. Taste is the same, and finishes with spiced banana esters.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle pour of a dark hazy off yellow with a thin disappearing white head. Main aroma hay, wheat that leads into a very faint spice and light citrus. Taste of bigger winter spice that is brought out by the lively body with a lingering of the same cinnamon and nutmeg. Overall drinkable beer that has winter spice notes that pair well with the lively body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
2/13/13. 12oz bottle from... somewhere... Im thinking Warehouse in Albany. Lonely tick lingering in my fridge. Lightly hazed orange pour with a thick, tight off-white head that cuts in half but seems to stick and laces okay. Dammit, I didnt know what this was until I took a sniff and then looked at the commercial description... holiday spices... ugh. Big whiff of nutmeg et. al in the aroma... reminds of pumpkin beers. I hate spiced pumpkin beers. Theres also a touch of sweet orange and some wheat character. Spiced flavor as well, again nutmeg et. al, with a bit of pale malts, wheat, a citrus tang, and some orange sweetness. Ehhhhh.
