Cybercat (5241) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Pours clear, bubbly golden with a thick but not long-lasting snow-white head. Aroma presents yeasty and fruity notes, not strong but welcoming. Flavor is stronger and more complex, wheaty with hints of spice, citrus and - salt? Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz. Drink it at a party or while watching one of those timeless holiday specials for the umpteenth time.

Aurelius (5129) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Almost clear gold, medium white head, standard Sam label and bottle. Musty, cinnamon aroma. Light spice, some mineral flavors, lightly bittered, a little sweet, light diacetyl. Medium body. Leftover from the office Christmas party.

Bamsen78 (5106) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Bottle at Ungstrups. Pours slightly hazy pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of flowers and nutmeg with subtle hoppy notes. Dark, sweetish and spicy aroma of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, hops and malt. Sweetish aftertaste. Nice.

luttonm (5041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2014
12oz in Seattle. Bright hazy orange, light amber. Big spicy wheat, obnoxious perfume of cardamom and sage. Clean crisp body, nice. White grape, creamy wheat. Eh, could be worse.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didnt care for this beer at all. White beers arent high on my list.

nearbeer (4994) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2012
12 oz. Hazy orange-golden with a quarter inch of lasting cream. Nose is dry cracked wheat, lemon zest and a touch of nutmeg. Taste is similar with the nutmeg and lemon zest taking more of the lead on the wheat. Some orange flesh in there as well. Medium body is soft, well-balanced, and tingly-dry on the finish with the spices and acidity. Seems to be exactly what they set out to achieve. Not bad, but my taste buds seem to be overly sensitive to nutmeg and this one nearly approaches my limit.

badgerben (4907) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Dark orange color with a large, quickly falling head. Strong ginger aroma with a solid nutmeg backing. Strong wheat flavor, lots of nutmeg. Light cinnamon. Heavy carbonation.

hotstuff (4902) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Rated on 10-31-2013 (Bottle from Krogers Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a huge smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is wheat, malt, orange peel, citrus, sweet, and a suggestion of spice. The flavor is sweet, wheat, malt, orange peel, and lightly spicy. The mouthfeel is watery and thin and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a very watery and thin tasting beer. It has very little character and is bland tasting.

travita (4891) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Clear look, bigger foamy white head, and golden in color. The smell is wheat, very spiced, heavy and artificial like, and yeast. The taste is sweet, si heavily spiced to the point of icky, and sticky.
