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.

A: Pours a nice orange/amber color with a rich foamy cap.
S: Aromatic spices of cinnamon and brown sugar.
T: First sip is exactly what you expected blasts of brown sugar and cinnamon then you get malty caramel and and some very nice light hops.
B: This one's no wimpy beer, top end of med/full body slight lacing down walls of glass.
O: Overall a very good beer they get slightly different after setting for a while, just wanted to check out the aging.
