Citrus and pine aroma with a light toffee malt backing. Same in the flavour with good balance. Very fresh tasting. Lots of juicy orange and other citrus flavours. Good beer, but nothing about it really seems "wintery’’.

On tap at HUB: Pours a nice ruby red/light brown. Good hop balance. Malty, grainy goodness. Fresh, and crisp. Tasting notes are not intense due to good conversation with Slack!

Gerbeer (2685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with medium head and nice lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and malts. Flavors of oranges and grapefruit, toasted malts, and light resin. Nice balance with long bitter finish.

Alphadelic (2011) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2013
A pretty ideal winter warmer. You don’t feel that heat until it hits your stomach. Light and smooth. Plenty of hop to counterbalance that sweetness. And some citrus and pine spiciness to cut the caramel flavor.

XaenDovet (1261) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
On tap at sunset. Upfront malt blend of toffee and citrus. So tough to pick out specifics. Late aroma of acidic, spiced malt. As bad as it sounds, and truly not intended, the acidic and malty blend of smells reminds me of a malty throw-up, with a mild alcoholic esophagus singe. Taste is fruity (crispy green grapes). Super late medium dry finish. I can't pick out much of this beer, which annoys the hell outta me, but its so good.

luttonm (3633) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22oz bottle in Seattle. Clear dark whisky. Sweet caramel aroma and first sip, sparkly roast body, sweet dry backbone. Not too herby. Good hop bitter finish. Nice beer

Pours a dark reddish color with really bubbly white head that sustains for at least a minute or so. Smells of caramel and burnt sugar, also citrus notes and pine resin. Great balance of bitter and sweet. Good dose of hops for an amber. Definate citrus flavors going on here too. Body is very good and is lightly carbonated. I’m not sure what is wintery about this, and think it could be offered year ’round.

stantheman (825) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Large bottle from BCLS 39th/Cambie in Vancouver. Dark reddish-amber color, with generous off-white head. Nose is floral citrus hops. Taste is gloriously hoppy, with some malt backing. Finish is long and bitter. Exceptional!
