Sampling right now on 2/18/14. had this one about 2 years ago and comes in a 'Winter Seasonal' 12-pack. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a hazy orange in color with about a 1/2-finger white head. Some spotty lacing is seen. Very pleasant aroma of mixed spices and malt, especially the orange peal coming through. A pleasing taste that isn't bitter and you can taste the spices and orange peal but it is not overwhelming unlike some seasonal brews. I really liked this one and is one of the better Samuel Adams also.

12 oz. bottle.

Very cloudy, peachy orange body. Thick finger of gauzy, eggshell white head. Nice lacing. Wheaty, witty nose. Accents of orange zest, lemon, and spices. Clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and maybe juniper. Not bad.

Soft, wheaty malt up front. Light sweetness. Bready. Light clove and banana, before citrus and spice take over. Orange zest with some lemon. Muddled holiday spices (cinnamon and nutmeg, mostly). Bready, wheatiness reclaims the finish, with lingering spices and citrus. Medium bodied, with a protein-y wheat, smooth feel. Not as bad as I was expecting. Kind of a nice change of pace from all the porters, stouts, and Celebration I've been drinking lately!
