4.38/5  rDev +18.7%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - Deep amberish brown. Some lacing from the bottom. Small one-finger head that dissipates in a minute or so.

S - A lot going on but still well balanced. Smells of citrus (maybe orange) and pine, along with some winter "spices."

T - The sweetest tasting winter seasonal ale I've tasted but also with the lowest ABV of the bunch. Starts off somewhat sweet with a citrus taste, followed by a malt flavor, and finishes with a pine aftertaste which isn't as dry as most winter seasonal ales I've tried. Overall it's a lot of flavor and none of them are overwhelming.

M - Sweet, can't hardly feel the alcohol, and not too carbonated. I'd say the level of carbonation is optimal for my taste in an ale.

D - The somewhat low ABV combined with the balanced flavors and the not-so-dry finish make this something I could have a few of before looking for something else. I wish I would have bought more of this than I did.

Overall this is the favorite seasonal ale I've tried for the winter second only to Sierra Nevada Celebration.
