COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This winter wheat beer uses dark malting to provide subtle toasty notes. We then single-hop and dry-hop this beer with Citra hops from our friend Bradís farm. Interesting pineapple notes from the Citra hop provide a stark contrast to the toasty notes in the body. An engaging and sessionable Winter Seasonal. ABV: 5% IBUs: 62

Love this beer, not the heavy spices typical with a winter style. Malty a little nuttiness. Dark pretty color, white head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (3950) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 1/31/13

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet and sugary, with leaves, tea, fruity notes, and a little caramel
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-brown color with a tan head and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes mid-plus sweet, lots of odd leafy notes, some tea flavor, and a light-mid bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it drinks cleanly, with average carbonation, and a mild dryness
Overall Impression: This is some solid stuff, not a favorite for me, but sold stuff. There are a few different things going on, but overall, it works pretty well. For a winter beer with a nice low ABV, I could see this being an easy one to session. Interesting, but still clearly not great.

Tap. Copper pour with a foamy head. Citrus, caramel, spice and floral. Body is lighter than the aroma would suggest. Citrus, caramel and spicy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Iron Horse tap room. Good webby tan lacing. Nose is sweet strawberry candies, sweet coffee, pepper. Taste similar with a lot of spicy and gritty coffee grinds. Interesting. Definitely not dunkelweizen, no yeast character, huge coffee adjunct. Mild butter in the nose. Big spicy finish. Thinner palate. No wheat beer density. Spicy pepper and coffee masks weak diacetyl.

[5009-20121208] Cask. Light peaty poopy aroma. Slightly hazy, brown amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Peaty toasted leaf flavour. Medium body. Not bad, nice to sample. (6/3/7/3/12) 3.1

Really liked this. Has the typical holiday spices and color but the citrus/pineapple hops flavor makes this a bit unique. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012-12-08. Brown body with a small tan head 3+ Dry aroma, notes of vegetation and leafy hops is rather odd. Flavour is similar with and odd vegetation character, mild bitterness, muted malt. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. A bit of a mess, I did not care for it. Not sure if it is the beer itself or if the cask did not fare well. On cask at Goodbar, Buffalo

Average effort. Tried it because it was organic. A bit of a letdown. Slight hoppiness with a even slighter malt profile. Dry finish . Move along...nothing to see here.

This beer is a mistake. Nothing like a Dunkelweizen. Itís more like a Dunkel-lPA-zen. Fake tasting hop extract like. The flavor and style do not match at all. Itís like buying a Belgium sour and opening it and it tastes like a Corona. If I tasted this blind folded I would think it was brewed by Laugunitas.
