I find this very enjoyable for what it is supposed to be- a wheat beer that reminds you of the holiday season/winter. Nice tingly feeling on the tongue from carbonation, warming spices, integrity of the base wheat is still there. Good.

Pours a hazy golden color with minimal head. Abundant orange citrus aroma with holiday spice notes as well ( cinnamon and nutmeg). Very sweet wheat beer that us extremely approachable and the spices actually blend well with the citrus flavor. A very good light seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear amber. Off-white creamy head. Aroma of citrus, mild christmas spice, and wheat malt. Tastes spiced and citrusy; a little yeasty and sweet. Medium bodied and smooth and slightly dry. Not bad.

Dont remember all the details as I drank this a few weeks ago. Very creamy in the mouth with a spicy flavor and aroma. I remember it being good.

Hazed light orange/gold , somewhat bubbly. Short but creamy froth. Soapy spice aroma, orange and nutmeg. Would have guessed ginger and lemon and not cinnamon though. Wheat malt.Tartness and citrus comes out as it warms. Good beer not big on the spices, although they were not overwhelmingly spiced, thats a plus. Good malt.

A holiday classic! Not quite as good as Southern Tier Xmas but still a very good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy medium gold with a thin white head. A bit of wheat malt in the aroma with some light spices. Spices come out a bit on the sip along with a very light lemony flavor. Good wheat and malt mix and the wheat gives it a nice body. Finishes slightly sweet in a bit watery. Nice winter / Christmas ale.

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.

Two fingers of head, held well. Cloudy, medium straw colored body. Smell a lot of spices: cinnamon, nutmeg and some citrus, but I cant place it. It smells festive. Taste like orange and the above spices. The mildest of bitterness at the end. Soft texture, surprising but nice. Medium body, low carbonation. Almost like sipping on a cloud. Really not bad. Not my favorite style, but this one is put together well.
