I agree with the reviews that say Christmas spices + wheat beer === strange. I did find it an interesting experiment, not revolting, but probably wont buy more.

Cloudy golden to amber color with a modest off-white head. Nearly no aromas. Some white bread and hint of zest. No bad scents at least. Lightly sweet, with some wheat, little lime and hints of ginger and nutmeg. Simple nog beer. 11/12

emacgee (4658) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2016
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.

basaywhat (230) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a medium sized head that slowly dissipates, leaving a bit of lacing. Smell is of bready malts, holiday spices, some citrus, and some additional dark fruits. Taste is a nice combination of the aroma, very smooth in the mouth. Nice medium body, easy drinking, but flavorful.

bigcat03 (298) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - NOV 24, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2016 Bottle poured into my Weihenstephan glass. Orange gold color and a foamy white head. Aroma is cloves, coriander, wheat, lemon. Initial taste is wheat, pepper, spices, coriander. Aftertaste is dry with mostly wheat sticking around. Lively carbonation and a thick but smooth mouthfeel. This is a solid wit! It?s not revolutionary but it is better than a lot of their other attempts at the style.
