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.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Cloudy tangerine color with a white head thats short-lived. Thick, yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Tastes like a BPA with a little gingerbread spice. Pretty good. Its a bit thick, but theres really not much else bad to say about it exept for the wimpy head.

SHIG (4951) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle thanks to my friend Mourty: Poured a hazy yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is full of spices such as cinnamon and coriander. Taste reminds me of ginger bread cookies with loads of very balancing spices. Seemed very festive.

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.

12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a solidly hazed, pale gold body with a thin, short-lived, white head.

Smell: Not just some pilsner and wheat malt, but also some pale malt in the mix. Theres no second guessing the spicing, you get the cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange peel.

Taste: Very light pale malt, the malted wheat and some pils with a soft breadiness and fair sweetness. The first few sips had me taken aback at the cinnamon and nutmeg spicing, but, eventually the tongue adjusted and it all kind of melded together, letting the citrus from the hops and added orange peel come forward a bit more. Finishes up a little sweet, a little spicy, and a little citrusy.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Feels fairly full for a witbier.

Overall: I think would take it over the ole Samuel Adams White Ale. Speaking of, is this its replacement? Gee, man, thats gotta be rough, being laid off on the holidays. Poor White Ale. Thanks, Obama!

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a decent hazy to cloudy white/off white tinged with a guiding hazy yellow note. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The smell had some light citrus with some light cinnamon, nutmeg and orange peel. The taste took those flavors and combined them and then added a fairly noticeable wheaty kick at the end. On the palate, this one sat pretty light on the body with a fair good sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation was good for a witbier. Overall, good holiday spiced witbier worthy of having again.

DialSquare (4731) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2014
12oz bottle from Lowes in Hickory. Gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is nutmeg, coriander and citrus. Tastes are zesty citrus, wheat and typical winter spices. Kind of a strange mix. Little yeasty in the finish.

chinchill (4680) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 A 12 oz. bottle dated best by March 2013. Pours hazy yellow to light amber with a small white head. Subtle, spicy aroma with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, bread dough and citrus. The taste largely follows the nose, with some nice winter spicing and bready flavor, It is rather tart too. Medium-bodied; medium-light carbonation that works well. O: Good version of a holiday spiced Belgian wit.

Cloudy straw gold pour with two fingers of white head. Nose shows round sweet spice and subtle bready yeast. Nutmeg/ginger/cinnamon. Not terribly offensive in the flavor. Easy enough to drink. Spice profile could definitely be more aggressive. Glad its not....Medium body with a soft carbonation and touch of bite.
