3.88/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance: semi-clear golden colored brew, with a decent bit of rising up carbonation. 4\5

aroma: Very malt and spice forward. It smells like cloves, a bit or coriander, and sweet malt. Good, but nothing to boast about. 3.5\5

flavor: The smell does not betray this one, the flavor is all spice and malty goodness. Lots of sweet grainy malty flavor comes first in this brew, with a nice burst of warmth from the spices. A bit of honey flavor on the finish as well. Not too shabby. 4\5

feel: it feels heavy, mostly due to its sweetness, which is helped out by its carbonation. 3.75\5

overall: I was surprised by this beer. It is a surprisingly easy to drink well made witbier. Its flavors follow the wit style quite well, and the final product is actually a fairly decent desert beer (I classify it as such due to how sweet it is). I would be happy to drink it again and found no real problems with it at all. 4\5

3.01/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A - Pours out a somewhat cloudy with an almost orange tint.

S - The added cinnamon and nutmeg are very dominant, particularly the nutmeg. I could not sense any malt or hops.

T - As expected, the added spices overwhelm the malt and hops. The finish is very much nutmeg.

M- A very rich mouth feel, almost creamy.

O - I got this as part of case of "Winter Favorites" but it's not a favorite of mine. I don't mind a little spice in seasonal beers but this was just too much. Even a spiced beer should still taste like beer. If you like a lot of spice, this one is for you; otherwise not so much.
