Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Weizen glass. L: cloudy dark Amber, light brown. Excellent thick tan head. Fades slowly. S: over hopped at the start. Pine fades to bear out malts of raisin, prune and molasses. Let this one rest and warm. T: citrus and fruity yeast. Decent blend. Good spice from hops. F: warming alcohol. O: good drink to crack open and sip over a long conversation.

This beer is light brown, hazy (murky), with a small off-white head. Nice lace. The aroma is a little malty, with some nutty and vanilla scents. The taste is moderately sweet, with a very malty balance. Full in body and quite warming. It's a great winter warmer.

Lovely orange peel tones, nicely spicy without being gimmicky. Pretty deep warm Amber. I like this the best of my limited experience with boulevard.

This is a very nice surprise from Boulevard - a quality, unique holiday brew at popular prices.

It's pretty in the glass. Brown, with stuff suspended. A fine head continues throughout. The aroma is a yeast funky, slightly hopped smell. Very nice.

The taste is yeast dominated. It's somewhat dry and slightly Belgian tasting. It does not have that spice taste nor much sweetness. A very interesting and unique taste.

Ah, it tastes slightly boozy too, and that lingers. Quite a great holiday brew.
