look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Single bottle poured into a weizen glass. A cloudy yellow-orange, the standard witbier hue, with a quick-breaking but reasonably ample white head. Smells tangy, citric, almost a bit metallic or sanguine, with some light citrus and green notes apparent. Tastes like a proficiently brewed if not conservative wit, the coriander is right where it should be (i.e., barely detectable) and there is a pleasant orange and lemon water vibe running from start to finish. I get some wheat spice and a floral almost tobacco-like faint hop presence but nothing too aggressive. Maybe a hair thicker than the average witbier, with a super-clean citric finish, just a hint of woody spice seed. One-dimensional but tasty enough I suppose. Does not match the grandeur of St. Bernardus Wit, Blanche De Chambly, or the like but does not embarrass itself either.

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.

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.
