Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a medium sized head that slowly dissipates, leaving a bit of lacing.

Smell is of bready malts, holiday spices, some citrus, and some additional dark fruits.

Taste is a nice combination of the aroma, very smooth in the mouth. Nice medium body, easy drinking, but flavorful.

Overall, a solid witbier, a nice lighter winter seasonal.
