Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy, full-bodied, light-colored golden-orange, the head substantial and pock-marked. The initial whiff is of an herb garden. This drinks with quite the complement of herbal character, yet is still light and easy to drink. Nice option for the holidays. (#4871, 12/26/2012)

Bottled, orange amber color Wouldnt have guessed this was a witbier, lots of spice and bready notes similar to the Winter Lager

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate nutmeg, light cinnamon, citrus, and a touch of orange peel. It pours a hazy orangish-gold with a two finger orange tinged off-white head that has decent retention. There is some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus/orange. The finish has moderate nutmeg, light cinnamon, and a hint of orange peel. Its medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, I like wheat beers and I like spiced beers, so I found this to be pretty tasty. I would throw this in the Spiced category as its the spices that are front and center over the Belgian Wit characteristics.

Patrickctenchi (6514) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Cloudy yellow with a tall, white head. Scent is busy....banana, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg... Taste is yeasty, wheat and spices.. Crisp. Not TOO sweet, but close.

joeneugs (6370) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark orange color with a tall white head. The aroma has some orange peel and light notes of baking spices. The flavor is the same. The body is a bit flabby for this style with a bit too much sweetness. The spices are well balanced though. Not a favorite, but a decent brew.

vyvvy (6346) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Looks like I liked this more than most. Pours cloudy yellow / orange with a large soapy off-white head. The aroma has lots of spiciness (cinnamon jumps out most), orange peel, smooth wheat, powder and an overall dryness. Medium smooth body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a gentle spice blend (lots present, but its not harsh) balance by rich smooth wheat. The finish has light plasticy taste, but not too big. Large amount of nutmeg and cinnamon that lingers. Nice unique holiday beer.

Suttree (6325) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Not really sure what Sam Adams was aiming for here. Belgian wit is rather light for a winter beer, and this is a little too heavy for the style. Kind of a miss all around...

RobertDale (6320) - 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.

ajnepple (6308) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Pale, gold and hazy with a white head. Spices, cinnamon, citrus fruit, wheat malts and nutmeg. Light to medium body. Pretty refreshing spiced wheat beer.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light ginger notes with some coriander notes also perceptible. Taste is a mix between some light notes of wheat with some coriander and ginger notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but really nothing to write home about either.
