Somehow I missed this. When I cracked this one and took a hit it was definitely something new and unique. Not necessarily the most wonderful thing ever, but definitely something that gets your attention.

It is a yellow thing, slightly dark with a thin head. The aroma is of a spiced ale, but nicely balanced. The taste is also a spiced affair, but also mildly bitter. The aftertaste is also a satisfying rich flavor.

Overall, this was a good one I almost missed for the season. I'm glad I took one last look at the bottom of the cooler at my number 2 carry out.

A-Translucent bright orange, not much carbonation or head.

S-Oranges, spices, grass. Not much else. Kinda bland almost.

T-Bland. Blah. Not much. Starts with some orange and malt with slight spices. but there really isn't much to it.

M-Lighter, tad watery, not much carbonation.

O-Sam Adams could greatly improve their winter mix pack by replacing this with another Old Fezziwig.

Sampling right now on 2/18/14. had this one about 2 years ago and comes in a 'Winter Seasonal' 12-pack. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a hazy orange in color with about a 1/2-finger white head. Some spotty lacing is seen. Very pleasant aroma of mixed spices and malt, especially the orange peal coming through. A pleasing taste that isn't bitter and you can taste the spices and orange peal but it is not overwhelming unlike some seasonal brews. I really liked this one and is one of the better Samuel Adams also.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours slightly cloudy orange with a tiny white head. Smells of some wintertime spices and wheat, not overly strong. Tastes of orange and very slight wheat with spice. Beer is light bodied, nice carbonation, nice finish. Overall a very good beer.
