Bottle from a winter mix-o-case poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazed deep lemon with a nice inch of whitish foam. A bit golden orange in the light. Shows moderate retention and light lace.
Nose is predominantly spice driven with cinnamon and nutmeg/pepper. Yeast influence is minimal or simply crowded out by the added spices, emerging to a small degree with exposure and warming. Pleasant and not overdone nonetheless.
Taste begins with some soft wheat notes followed by a brief middle with sweet orange. Spices swiftly sweep the palate and offer a decent linger to the finish. Rather light in malt profile and overall depth of character. Decent and with a spritzy carbonation throughout the glass though a bit thin overall in feel. Overall an interesting take on a holiday spiced brew though not in a striking way.
