I do not know the lingo for these beers. But I do know that I generally enjoy anything Widmer Borthers release. The seasonal is hit or miss, and this is for a reason (that is, if they were as good as Drifter, then they would be offered year-round). "Brrr" had me excited; I was in the Christmas mood and their advertisements claimed that the beer had a "candy" taste. Now I do not believe advertising 97.3% of the time, but I did this time, due to company reputation.

Big mistake. This beer is repulsive to the taste. It looks good, smells good, and is strong at over 7% alcohol, but my god, it tastes horrible. I've never had it with a meal, a lemon or lime, but it disappoints every time and I will never try it again....unless I'm already drunk.

Too hoppy/bitter for a winter warmer.
