From 22oz. bottle to snifter. Pour is a hazy yellow-orange, thick lively white head. Nose is hop, slight citrus, piney, earthy. Interesting aroma, it’s a little heavier, more of a cold weather hop feel as opposed to bright and very floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, mostly bitter. Very well balanced for being a higher ABV. Finishes very sharp, lingering hop presence. I’m so used to having dark beers all winter long, this was a nice change of pace executed very well.

12 oz bottle. Dark orange and pretty clear with a white head. Bitter hops, citrus fruit, toasted malts, light caramel, earth, zest and spices. Fairly strong and bitter winter ale. Medium body with a dry lingering finish.

RedscorpJ (4) - Westminster, USA - NOV 24, 2013 does not count
This winter ale pours a medium, slightly cloudy amber. There is a very subtle fruity aroma. Feels a bit thick in the mouth, yet smooth, finishing with a tiny bit of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is hazy with an orange hue, accompanied by a dense and firm white head that resembles a coating of fresh snow.
Aroma: The aroma is interesting, peach comes to mind as does oranges which are complimented by a sweet but light in strength malt base. The aroma, on the whole, could use more strength though.
Taste: The intro is very mild with hints of orange with light malts, the flavor is mild with malts, hints of caramel, until the finish which adds a sweet, but light, peach flavor with peach and caramel lingering lightly for a moment or two.
Palate: Full bodied, soft carbonation.
Overall: Much like the other Elysian beers that I’ve had I feel that they border on being great. This is an interesting beer though, I can’t say I’ve tasted a beer with peach aromas and flavors that didn’t actually use peach, but that’s what it reminds me of. This isn’t a bad beer by any means and I certainly won’t forget it, but I don’t know if I would buy it again.

Appearance is nothing special , but it has a nice nose, malt and hops. Taste is even better, aforementioned malt and hops with a hint of alcohol burn. Palate is surprisingly subdued however, but lasts a long time in the mouth.

Advocate_Ames (426) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours cloudy golden with little to no head. The aroma of heavy carmel malts, light booze, spices, pine notes, old hops, and barnyard like scent. In the flavor I noticed sweet malts, mild bitterness, oranges, and weak warming spices. Overall the finish was of bitter hops, citrus, malts, soapy in tecture, and minor spice flavor.

Everything is decent about this beer except for the buttery bitter finish. Spruce, dough, earthy, golden raisins.
