Amber with a cap of foam that leaves decent lacing. Smell is sourdough bread, quite malty. Taste is malt, bread, crackers initially with a pungent floral resin-spicy character then blooms mid palate, then a nice washing of hops reigns in the sweetness. Medium body, zingy carbonation. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. Enjoyable.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malts, alchohol is present. Taste is a good bit boozy, some malts, a hint of spice, more alcohol. feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall not bad, but a bit to boozy for me.

This beer pours a deep yellow to orange in color very clear with half an inch of head and minimal lacing.

This beer has a nice aroma of fruity hops and sweetness.

The taste is grapefruit hops followed by sweet maltiness and followed by grapefruit again.

Mouthfeel is smooth and little carbonation.

Overall one of the few hop forward winter seasonals that is very nice and enjoyable, a beer I will purchase again

Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Nice Red Color with some mild carbonation. Head pours around 2 fingers with a brown tint and has decent acing

Smell - Caramel, Malts, Some Slight Figs, Chocolate and Barley. More Brown Ale than Winter Warmer in my opinion.

Taste - Piney Hops, Caramel Malts, Figs, and Chocolate. Fairly hoppy Winter Warmer and it tastes a little boozy. Decent Flavor overall.

Mouthfeel - Moderate Weighted Body and carbonation. For some reason, the moderate carbonation and body weight match the style quite well. With that said, this is more of a sipper than anything else.

Overall - A another decent Winter Warmer from Widmer Brothers, but I'd rather drink their
Barrel Aged Brrrbon, which is a better interpretation of a Winter Warmer (not to mention tastier)

Interesting amber. Clear, reddish-amber body with a thin, off-white head. Light lacing on the descent.

Smell: Crystal malts, some modest notes of toasted bread and grains with an additional hint of fruit and alcohol.

Taste: Amply sweet crystal maltiness with some toast, some graininess, and a hint of light-colored brown sugar. Moderate sweetness overall. Resiny hops, some pithy-accented citrus and fair degree of bitterness. Tiny flourish of berry. Long bittersweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess within. Coats the back of the throat.
