A: Off white head with a hazy orange body. Appealing.

S: Spice, spice, and more holiday spices. Not much else distinguishable though.

T: A spiced wheat taste. Hits of orange people, coriander. A bit too spicy.

M: Very slick and well carbonated.

It's okay in a variety pack but I wouldn't seek it out on its own.

I was able to score a six pack of this beer at a very good price this past weekend. It has a darker shade of yellow with some hints of orange, coriander and a slightly malty aftertaste at the end. A very solid tasting beer from Sam Adams and one I can see myself trying again someday.

I really enjoyed this beer. I enjoyed it along side ken burns doc on prohibition. I really loved the taste and feel. It is a very nicely crafted beer. One of my favorites. Sadly I can't get anymore now that its January. Shame on me

DATE TASTED: December 19, 2014... GLASSWARE: Ommegang Rare Vos... OCCASION: the last shopping trip done... APPEARANCE: pours a fizzling, rapidly diminishing off-white head; body is a hazy orange with little effervescence, belying its pour... AROMA: pungent, aromatic flowers; thick, musty coriander, mulled wine and faint orange peel... PALATE: warm, middling and rather mild; a blunted finish...TASTE: slight, sour, oddly malty at its end with cardboard-like grain; matted flower esters too, with some cinnamon and spice--surprisingly not an enjoyable combination ... OVERALL: usually Sam produces some new treats during the Christmas season, but this one is more of a trick, with uneven mouthfeel and odd flavors that left it largely untouched at our holiday get-together...

This beer is very tasty! It has a nice amber hue and a great Christmas smell. It taste awesome, of nutmeg and orange, but the feel on the tongue is a little bit weak. I give this rather distinct beer a great overall score! Go Sam Adams!!
