3.79/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a burnt orange. pretty earthy orange. very hazy and completely opaque. a creamy white head of about a finger and a half that sticks around for ever

Smell: strong cinnamon. yeasty flavors, some spicy phenols. some clove. mostly dominated by cinnamon but a pretty inviting winter scent overall

Taste: opens up with a bit of belgian yeast. some spicy and clovey taste. cut off abruptly by cinnamon. rarely i get an odd kick of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: fairly light, pretty dry, but not overly. lingering cinnamon

Overall: a good spiced winter white. a good switch up in the winter from all the stouts and bourbon barrels. still missing either strong yeast to combat the cinnamon. also the astringent alcohol gets me a little too much

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%

Roommate brought these home to share, so I have no idea what the store price would be. He works at the distributor for this beer in Chicago and gets them for $10/case, so I'm lucky to get to enjoy them at that price. 12oz brown bottles with no freshness date.

The beer pours a cloudy apricot color, which would be expected from a beer made with wheat malt and wheat flakes. It made a ½-finger white head that lasted about a minute, leaving just a small amount of spotty lacing.

The beer smelled wheaty with lots of spices. It also has some barnyard smell to it.

One sip and you know that this is definitely a spiced beer as it's loaded with cloves, cardamon, and orange peel. Belgian yeast, wheat, and caramel make up most of the other flavors. Low, but noticeable hop bitterness (at just 20 IBUs), with a touch of alcohol in the finish.

Creamy, smooth, and medium bodied with moderate to medium carbonation.

Overall, I thought it was a good, spiced beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a Lgunitas mason jar.

Dammit, now I've got Jadakiss on the brain... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly-murky topaz topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, coriander, cardamom, chamomile, light lemon zest, and a touch of cream. The taste brings in more of the same, with some black pepper added, some extra coriander, and a bit of orange peel bitterness tossed in for good measure. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a nice spiced wheat, nothing special, but I could drink another were one offered.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big pear, apple, orange peel, light banana, clove, pepper, wheat, biscuit, coriander, cardamom, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of spice, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big pear, apple, orange peel, light banana, wheat, biscuit, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, coriander, cardamom, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, orange peel, light banana, wheat, biscuit, clove, coriander, cardamom, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice witbier. All around good balance and robustness of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
