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

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. 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.

maxwelldeux (4095) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2012
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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Rerate 11/03/2012 - on tap at Cherry Tree in Brooklyn by myself waiting for Erica to do whatever girls do when they get ready for an hour. Not changing the score, seems to be pretty consistent from bottle to tap, but Iíll just add that thereís a grainy-bitter hop profile that comes through more on tap. 4/8/12 - 12oz bottle from variety pack bought in Congers. Drank on Easter from lager glass. Pour is dark gold with pretty big off-white head. Aroma is definitely the highlight with this one. Itís very fresh-smelling, even in such a wide-mouthed glass. Fresh hops and malts on the nose - canít get more granular than that. Taste is not quite as satisfying, but definitely decent. Some earthiness/spice in there and a fair bit of hops, which is a relief for a winter beer (they usually bore me with the spice/vegetable flavors). Pretty good actually, but not great.
