Pours an opaque copper color with a one finger fluffy white head.

The smell is wheat and spices, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.

The taste follows the nose this being a pretty standard wheat beer with spices. There is also a hint of some sort of citrus taste and everything blends together quite nicely but nothing really pops or stands out. It is an interesting choice by Sam Adams to blend a wheat beer with holiday spices. It might be a good beer to use in order to introduce a friend to wheat beers.
