3.71/5 rDev +6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Included in the 2013 season of the Winter Pack.
Pretty standard affair, label-wise. Not as majestic as a couple of the others.
I poured this into a pint glass. It pours a hazy light gold, with a one finger head that shrinks rather quickly to a thick ring around the sides. Lacing is on the minimal side. Not bad in any way really, so a standard 4 from me.
Smell: I'm not really picking up anything but the orange peel. There's also a wheat-like aroma as it warms up, but not much else. The orange peel is nice, but it'd be nice if there was a bit more of something else to mix it up a bit.
Taste: Yep. Orange peel. I'm getting nothing of the nutmeg and cinnamon they claim on the bottle. A wheat/malt factor at the end, but it's mostly just the orange peel. With that being said, it still taste pretty decent, just not much in the way of complexity.
Feel: Light and silky. Moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not bad, not sure I'd pick up a six of this, but pretty decent in a seasonal pack. I've only had three other "Witbiers" so I can't really compare too much to the style, but as a beer, it's pretty decent.
Serving type: bottle
