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.

Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didnít care for this beer at all. White beers arenít high on my list.

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

travita (4988) - 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.

DialSquare (4979) - 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.

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

SHIG (4956) - 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.

chinchill (4935) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2012
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. Thereís 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, thatís gotta be rough, being laid off on the holidays. Poor White Ale. Thanks, Obama!

2.7
DiarmaidBHK (4788) - 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. Iím getting the orange peel but not much if the nutmeg or cinnamon. Lingers a bit of orange. Typical wit.
