BeerandBlues2 (12839) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy-cloudy orange with a very small, fizzy white head, short to no retention or lacing. Aroma is orange, light caramel and toast malt, spicy wheat malt, cinnamon and nutmeg with faint earthy hops. Flavor is spicy wheat malt, spices, light citrus notes and a sweet finish. Light body and carbonation. The toast malt is problematic in this beer. Yuck!

Slightly hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that evaporates steadily Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Citrus, wheat and spice in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy wheat, cinnamon and biscuit malt. The finish is sweet with a mildly spiced aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

"I dig the spices used here for a holiday ale, but question the use of them in a witbier. Especially the nutmeg seems to beg for a bigger more robust base beer. I dont dislike it, but its a definite step down from the coffee stout its replaced."

Bottle. Nutmeg, cinnamon and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large white head. Strong nutmeg flavor dominates with wheat malt, light cinnamon/clove. Bitter orange peel finish. Not bad - extra spicy.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket in Fort Collins. Pours a cloudy golden orange appearance with a white head. Very spicy, nutmeg, huge orange peel, a bit yeasty, a bit herbal aroma. Chewy, big orange peel, zesty cinnamon, nutmeg bready, citrusy flavor. A lot seems to be overdone in this beer but overall, its not that hard to drink.
