Split a 750 ml poured into a duvel glass
A: pours a hazy golden orange with a whips of white head, a film remains around the outer ring of the glass through out... Not much lacing to speak of. It's not a bad looking beer, but the lack of head and lacing lowered the score here.
S: In the aroma I Mainly get bready yeast notes, along with some notes from the spices, I mainly get cinnamon, and nutmeg? (Turns out they used allspice, cinnamon and ginger) as the brew warms I deffinatly start to get more of the spice, particuarly the ginger, as I get vague whiffs that remind me of ginger bread men. There is a bit of sweetness in the aroma as well, although note as much as I anticipated, and while I get citrus I'd be hard pressed to say that I smelt pinneapple persay. Nice comes x-mas time aroma overall.
T: much like the nose, I get some bready yeast notes, along with a bit of sweet citrus, pinneapple comes through more towards the finish, along with the spices, I like the use of spices here, they blend nicley with the yeast notes and seem to balance them out.
M: medium body with moderate carbonation that works very nicley with the brew, keeping it from being syrupy, some lingering x-mas spice in the aftertaste.
O: this is a pretty good x-mas beer, I thought it was tasty and pretty nicley balanced and had a decent drinkability for the abv, defiantly worth enjoying for the holidays, I'm curious as to how this will age.

Pours with a golden color and limited head. Light carbonation. Extreme sweetness in the first taste but a thick mouthfeel. Definitely has the smell and taste of pineapple and oranges. Initial impression was that this beer is almost too sweet
Overall it was okay but I think I would only buy again for the full 12 days of Christmas series.. this wasn't anything special
