A lovely, golden beer, brewed with a Belgian yeast. Could easily be called a Strong golden Ale, but the brewer cals it a Winter Warmer, so we'll go with that. Nice hop nose, plus hints of spices, likely from the yeast. Very crisp on the palate with interesting notes both from local spruce tips and 30 IBUs worth of noble Saaz hops. The grain bill included both wheat and rye, along with enough barley to bring it in at 10.5% ABV, though you would not guess the brew was that potent when you taste it. A super beer to warm body and soul on those cold winter days in Fairbanks.
