Part of Winter Variety Pack - Best by April:

Pours clouded light orange-amber with a fluffy head that soon thins. Thin lacing sticks.

The smell is of wheat tang with mild spices.

The taste is of wheat tang, orange peel, coriander, nutmeg, mint, mild cinnamon. It has a tangy, spicy, crisp finish.

It is light-bodied and fairly effervescent.

A mild witbier with some "holiday" spices. Not bad.

12oz bottle into SA Perfect Pint glass.

A: Pours a lightly cloudy golden with lemon highlights beneath a short lived soft looking bright white head that faded into a fuzzy film. Thin wisps of lace were left down the glass.
S: Clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon are easily noticeable upon first whiff. I get notes of wheat and chalky yeast and a touch of citrus following.
T: Creamy wheat flavors mixed with minerally yeast and syrupy citrus flavors. Cinnamon and nutmeg are still prominent. Everything has kind of a syrupy greasy flavor/feel to it that is a bit off putting. The aftertaste is synthetic and contains notes of black pepper and white grape juice.
M: Very soft and frothy carbonation goes well with a very creamy medium body and smooth mouthfeel. This beer is greasy though and coasts my mouth strangely.
O: A step fuller and creamier than the really bad ones of the style, but I did not care for this one a whole lot more than I care for those. Flavors are as described on the bottle but taste synthetic and syrupy, and everything has an oily texture to it. Not the worst the definitely not the best offering from BBC.
