DiarmaidBHK (5947) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from state line liquors. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Not a lot on the nose except a faint orange. I’m getting the orange peel but not much if the nutmeg or cinnamon. Lingers a bit of orange. Typical wit.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Bottle from Beer and Wine. Bold orange body with medium head. Nose is funky, citrus, enjoyable. Taste of hops, fruits, cinnamon and spices, Nice and warming finish.

nearbeer (5636) - 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.

Seems like a decent witbier, although a bit darker than most and more head than most. Winter spices are present, although I’m trying to decide if they add or detract from the style. It seems like it would be a decent enough witbier on it’s own merits, so it’s best to decide if you like the American winter spices or not.

burg326 (5613) - Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a hazy light yellow color with aromas of citrus, coriander, spice, and some light wheat. Flaovrs are the same, light spiciness in the aftertaste, decent witbeer overall.

2.8
Aurelius (5589) - 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.

3.4
Bamsen78 (5573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Bottle at Ungstrup’s. 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.

jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 12, 2013
12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of light spices, a little wheat, hints of hops, and light malts. Flavor the same, with everything pretty light. Light to average texture. Not bad but not great.

3.2
mar (5445) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Hazy yellow, white head. Nose cinnamon, spice, ginger, and gum drops. Easy palate, heavy spices, followed by cinnamon, wheat, and light fruit.
