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.

I was highly disappointed with this beer. I am no beer expert but I have had a wide variety of beers and this is one of the worst beers I have ever had. Its a creative blend, high quality beer but the taste was awful. I can't really think of words to explain it but it is tough to swallow.
