As a winter ale, it’s disappointing. It’s not that interesting, or special, but something about Wintertime Ale was very drinkable. To start with, the mouth-feel is very rich and textured but delicately so. An interesting tea taste shines through and works better than I would have imagined. Slight hops aftertaste, with a little floral in there too - enough going on but not too muddled. If they relabeled this as as a farmhouse ale, I think it’d do pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a light mahogany with light tan head. Aroma of carmel and toasted malt, follows thru to taste with a hint of fruit. A little bitterness left on the palate. Good drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got one on clearance and drank from bottle. Nice nut flavor. Probably would have been better when it was fresh but still pretty good.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2015
12/26/14. On tap at RIBCO. Amber pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Spiced aroma, Christmas spices and the like, bready, malty, doughy. The flavor is basically the same, a dose of spices, malty, bready, a little yeasty, doughy. Not bad.

Guerde (1288) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
(bottle) Pours a copper-red color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Aroma holds a strong note of toasted malt, some chocolate undertones, and a scent reminiscent of a spiced date bar. Flavor is full of the toasted malt, with a semi-sweet and spicy component that turns really dry and somewhat off-putting on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is fizzy. Overall a pretty nondescript beer that was pleasant enough to drink.

This was a pretty regular winter beer. A bit of spice, some malts, caramel. Not too crazy.

kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Draught pint. Appearance is hazy orange color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is caramel and bready. Taste is similar with caramel sweetness and slight herbal bitterness, but not much flavor. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth texture, and a semi-dry finish.

wlajwl (5831) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Aroma is caramel malts and spices/a small hint of heat. The flavor is caramel/caramel malts, spices, oily and a mix of sour, tart and a hint of heat in the finish.
