Vackert bärnstensfärgad med medelstort gräddfärgat skum. Kryddig doft med kanel, ingefära, pomerans och mörk limpa. Smaken är maltsöt och kryddig – ingefära, kanel – med pomerans och torkad frukt och en fin beska som balanserar sötman. En skön och kryddig julöl. SteveOrz85 (249) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2015
From winter classic variety pack. 6 oz (half bottle) served in tulip glass. Beer is amber in color. One finger head dissipates quickly leaving some reasonable lacing. Aroma is weak but mostly light malts and ginger. Taste is lightly sweet with light maltiness acompanied by notes of orange and some cinnamon. Medium carbonation and light to medium bodied beer. Overall not a bad easy drinking winter beer. Would not buy a solid case, but worth trying. fkoolen (1252) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Can during United flight from Chicago to Amsterdam. Nice amber colour, offwhite creamy head. Caramel malty, spicy and herbal, couch syrupy, liquorice, cinnamon; can’t really get the ginger and orange peel. Not too balanced. Medium body and carbonation. joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2015
On draft, Guadalajara, York, PA. Pours clear deep brown, quick white head. No lacing or retention. Aroma of ginger and nutmeg. Taste is sweet with slight sour notes. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes astringent. Tasting notes are all spice. I don’t like this at all. climberbob (458) - Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2015

Pours amber with a quick off white head. Nose is mild but pleasant with some sweetnes and a touch of herb. Flavor is a surprisingly rich sweet bread with a little fruit and spice. Finish is long and substantial. a very good beer for what it is osvdale (5) - - NOV 26, 2015 does not count
I’ve finally found my goto beer for the holiday season. This is probably the 10th limited edition holiday brew I’ve tried and I don’t need to look any further. A robust brew with a non overpowering hint of spice and an extremely crisp finish. Cheers! miyauchi38 (1096) - chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2015
