3.46/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, dulled golden body with a slim, one-third inch, white head.

Smell: Creamy wheat, foremost, aided by vague, misty notes smelling only lightly of citrus, fruit, and whole, wholesale spices.

Taste: Light pale malts and lightly toasted wheat, with a soft, restrained sweetness. Very mild, very meager hints of citrus, plum, and spice. Near nil hop character and bitterness, leaving the balancing to be led by the spice and carbonation. A kiss of hibiscus as it warms a tad. Fairly crisp, sweetish, wheaty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: It's a light, wheaty, not particularly compelling beer.

3.33/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance holds a cloudy yellow orange color supporting a dissipating head. Smell of the citrus, wheat, mild malt, hop and spice. Taste follows the aroma having a citrus spiciness to it. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Seem to make for a nice seasonal session.

3.18/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Cloudy with a small white colored head.

Smells mildly of spice and cloves with a slight orange aroma. Nice hint of Cinnamon.

Starts out mildly sweet with a toasted pie crust flavor. Mildly sweet and mildly spicy but not quite a Pumpkin Pie.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an OK holiday Ale.

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

From twelve ounce bottle dated to May 2014.

Scent is a citrus , soapy lemon. Appearance is hazy yellow orange with a decent white head. Head dissipates quickly, no lacing. Taste is of lemons and clove. Nothing very stimulating, neither good nor bad. Soapy aftertaste. Meh!
