3.98/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

A - Yellow-orange, much like Blue Moon or other wheats. White foam head that leaves some lacing but disappears after a couple of minutes.

S - I mostly first smelled the nutmeg and orange peel. An interesting combination, but nice.

T - For this combination of spices, it seems pretty balanced. You can taste the cinnamon and nutmeg among the more summery things like orange and the light wheat. The cinnamon doesn't punch you in the mouth, which I was worried about.

M - Not quite as creamy as one might expect, but then regardless of the season it's designated for, this kind of beer isn't really meant to be. Not overly carbonated but leaves a fuzzy feeling around your teeth.

O - Overall, quite good, and though I'm a sucker for wheat beers, not my favorite seasonal from Sam Adams. But I'd drink it again and hope I like it as much a second time around.

3.48/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a medium sized head that slowly dissipates, leaving a bit of lacing.

Smell is of bready malts, holiday spices, some citrus, and some additional dark fruits.

Taste is a nice combination of the aroma, very smooth in the mouth. Nice medium body, easy drinking, but flavorful.

Overall, a solid witbier, a nice lighter winter seasonal.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a nice orange/amber color with a rich foamy cap.
S: Aromatic spices of cinnamon and brown sugar.
T: First sip is exactly what you expected blasts of brown sugar and cinnamon then you get malty caramel and and some very nice light hops.
B: This one's no wimpy beer, top end of med/full body slight lacing down walls of glass.
O: Overall a very good beer they get slightly different after setting for a while, just wanted to check out the aging.
