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 Brad’s 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

[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

Aroma is toffee and an odd spiciness. The flavor is malts, toffee and odd spiciness in the finish.

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. It’s more like a Dunkel-lPA-zen. Fake tasting hop extract like. The flavor and style do not match at all. It’s 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.

Bottle. Pours a very dark amber color with very little head. Very hoppy nose on this, which was a very pleasant surprise. Taste is a little hoppy, but a very easy drink.

TheBeerGod (5568) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Copper pour with a short, foamy tan head. Strong hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and tropical fruits atop toasted malt and caramel. Taste is big citrus fruit, tropical fruit, floral hops, caramel, toasted malt, light grains and hints of toffee. Body is medium and slick with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more citrus fruit, tropical fruit notes, floral hops, caramel and toasted grains.

DiarmaidBHK (3724) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle from Greenlife grocery. Pours brown with a thick khaki head. Slight note of banana on the nose. Lots of Hoppiness on the tongue with a roasted malt thing. Finishes with a hint of bitterness. Echoing other sentiments I find this beer not sessionable and a bit weird.

Pours a dark brown color. Smell is hops and malts. Taste is hops and bitter up front, than some malts kicking in, a touch of wheat. Overall an interesting and enjoyable beer.
