Pours a bright orange color with little head that fizzes away pretty clean. The smell was slightly sour with a cherry scent to it. The taste was interesting with alcohol burn in the beginning and mellowing out into sour cherries and orange peel. Could have used a bit more balanced but made for a nice dessert beer.

Color- cloudy cider. Full thick head.

Aroma- mix of spices, very mild hops, and rich wet bread dough.

Taste- a very well balanced winter warmer. Starts malty with whole grain bread notes, then sweetens in the mid-body, then finishes with a balance of mild spices (perhaps clove and grains of paradise) and gentle hops.

Poured from 550 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 2/2/2014.

Sigh. Still reviewing Christmas beers 2+ weeks after the fact. Shame on me.

Copper-colored pour with thick+bubbly white head. Retains easily at a half-finger while leaving nice lacing.

Scent is extremely plain. The faintest of faint hints of honey and bread. Impressively vapid.

Taste, luckily, is an improvement, but really not interesting. Herbal+light veggie tones, sweet malts, bread, apple butter, and some nutty malts. Pretty bland.

Decent mouthfeel that seems a bit on the thin side. Low-medium carbonation.

Really not much going on with this one. Some decent malt flavors but overall very tame and uninteresting.
