Christmas in April! Bought a few on clearance from Dry Tavern. It reminds me of Juicy Fruit gum....in a good way. Very well balanced in all ways. Excellent, Southern Tier!

One of the best herb/spiced beers I ever tasted. It sort of reminds me of a pumpkin ales due to the spices that were used. Well balanced & the high abv is hidden well. A 4 pack of this would be great for a special occasion. I agree with the malts being masked but hey that's not that big of an issue in my opinion. Cheers! A-

I like this beer. It's a bit on the hoppy side, but a good Xmas ale. Nice cinnamon aroma, good spice and orange caramel flavor.

Classified as a Winter Warmer. The beer is a beautiful Amber. Smell is strong and complex. Cinnamon notes are strong in the taste - and that is good - but is gets obscured by the mish-mash of other flavors. This is a fine beer but lacks direction.
