look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Honey gold body, thick paper white head, good lacing.

Grainy on the nose... a slight suggestion of orange peel and pear, maybe some white pepper, wheat, pretty smooth but also pretty boring.

Cinnamon, nutmeg... a bit too much spice for a wit, there's some wheat and a touch of clove, I think the spice just needs to get dialed back.

Certainly is drinkable though.

I poured this into a pint glass. It has a murkey orange color body with a thin white head. The smell is of orange peel and wheat. The taste is orange, nutmeg and wheat flavor to it. the mouth feel is nice and carbonated and rolls off the tongue real nice. Overall a average witbier

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Tradition orange wit color. Definitely flat, with no foam or lacing at all, but the color makes up for this.

Smell: Lots of nutmeg and clove with a hint of orange peel as advertised. Kind of a fruity eggnog. A bit sour in the finish.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Just a hint of nutmeg. There's really nothing else in this. Quite watery also. There's really just no bite in the finish.

Overall Drinkability: One of the most average beers I've ever had. I rate it as such overall.
