A nice bright amber with an off white head that doesn't hang around. It's got a nice hop nose; piney, citrusy. The taste falls short a quick hop blast falls into a garlicky middle and then fades into cloying wheaty finish. It goes down smooth and would be easy to drink a couple.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Best by June 2013.
A: Pours a clear ruby with a 1.5 finger mostly white head.
S: Can get the wheat background with a spicy hop. Pretty funky aroma going on here almost like a moldy wet old sock.
T: Fairly balanced taste here, good wheat malts and I like the spice from the hop. Certainly sessionable and fitting for the winter.
M: Light bodied with average carbonation. Good clean body, smooth drinking.
Overall not a bad seasonal beer, interesting just wish the aroma wasnt so off. Maybe blending in some more hops would help.

A clear, mahogany colored winter ale with an impressive eggshell cover and tenacious lacing. The aroma has tart rhubarb yeast and strawberry caramel-vanilla. Very interesting, I like it. The flavor brings more tart lemony malt with a bit of ginger-nutmeg. It's a little aqueous in feel, medium-light bodied with mild but tingly carbonation. I get a little bit of an evergreen hop that makes this an overall enjoyable change up for the winter months!

Best before 6/2013.
Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, and some onion, garlic, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a very earthy flavor on the finish. There is a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer with the onion and garlic aromas and flavors I am not a fan of.

12 oz bottle poured into my brand new Peak Organic shaker pint glass (I was told it's a true 16 oz glass, but I havent checked yet).
A -- nice clear dark caramel color with a small white head.
N -- big piny, resiny nose with some orange peel and nice caramelly, toasty background.
T -- again, nice hoppy, piny taste from citra hops. this also adds a good spicy character, but its a hop spice not a spice spice, if that makes sense. I get a toasted marshmallow taste on the back, which makes this a great winter flavor to me. really think the taste stands out on this one.
M -- average mouthfeel, nothing special to report. no problems with it.
O -- I was pleasantly surprised by this. I had no idea what to expect, and I usually don't think of hoppy wheat ales when I think of winter brews. I could definitely drink these throughout the course of a holiday party or a winter camping trip for several hours. Really good quality.
Cheers (and have a safe winter!)!
