look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Picked up a single in early February from Fry's as part of a mixed sixer for $1.50. Best by May 2014.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that has mostly dissipated.

Nose has hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Taste is a wheat base with dashes of cinnamon and slight bitters from the nutmeg and citrus peel.

Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated.

Overall this is not a bad beer, appropriate for the holiday season, worthy of a shot.

3.18/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden orange, hazy, but very little sediment is visible. Thick off white head.

Smell: Not too strong, some fruit, citrus.

Taste: Similar to aroma, but stronger. Citrus, some spices.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, well carbonated.

Overall: It did not live up to my expectations. It is not a bad beer, but it falls short. Yet, I would still have it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: This beer has a slightly dark cloudy yellow color with a clean white head.

Smell: Smells like cloves and citrus.

Taste: Very faint cinnamon and nutmeg tastes with a dominant orange peel note. strong citrus body and aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and citrusy with a slightly sour aftertaste.

Overall: A prominently orange peel citrus taste with an almost non-existent nutmeg/cinnamon hint. Not to impressive but pretty drinkable.
