I'm not rating this one accordingly, as I'm fairly positive I had a bad bottle. It was actually my cousin's, who is just starting to get into craft.
Tasted straight from the bottle. Didn't take the time to take in the aroma, but assume it is the typical wit nose. Taste was very bland and watery, no flavor, with a sharp astringency that left me with cottonmouth. No wheat, coriander or orange peel, just astringent seltzer water.
As aforementioned, pretty sure it was a bad bottle (my brother did drop this one, perhaps he broke the seal and it went flat or something). May try again in the future.

One of the worst Sam Adams offerings. Awful, almost sickening smell and a taste that matches it. Putrid odor. Not sure why these guys thought drinking potpurri would be a good idea. Looks like any other Belgian Wit beer, in terms of color and clarity. Mouthfeel and carbonation are all completely normal, but the smell combined with the flavor profile make this absolutely off-putting.

Hazy faded blonde, a little darker than blond with a white head that dissipates very quickly.
Smells like the holiday, mostly nutmeg with a bit of cinnamon. Slightly perfumey and wheaty as well. Tastes like spice. Drinkable but overly spice with the faintest of beer flavors such as wheat. Too sweet, not balanced, too much spicy. Tastes like licking the wax paper you just cooked holiday sugar cookies on.
Just Sam releasing two seasonals to take up more shelf space, the more limited of which (being this one along with their pumpkin and shandy) that are made for the masses with simple and relate-able ingredients and are on the sweet side. Sigh
