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

nice pine hop character with an initial barrel wood taste and a bit of moldy funk. heavy enough ivy in the mix there is a noticeable sweetness in the finish after a couple of of good sips. a creamy vanilla flavor permeates more at first taste and less so later. should be called soulstice because it is too satisfying to be a session. a bit of spicy licorice and cinnamon.

Not much of a wintery taste here, no spices. Just a basic ale. Deep color clean taste though kind of bland.Guess it was good for what it was easy drinking darker colored ale. Would not seek this one out again next year.

Bottle, pours clear dark copper with a thick and persistent beige head. Surprisingly hoppy aroma, with grass, flowers and bits of pineapple and vanilla. Light body and carbonation. The taste is sort of hollow, a bit of toast and pine. Dry floral finish.

(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Clear copper pour with a thin tan head. Very mild aroma. Mainly caramel malts with a very light hop hint. Flavor is extremely weak and watery. Some caramel sweetness and thatís about it.

So my uncle got a keg directly from the brewery, and I think this means mine is much fresher than most....must be cause it was hoppy and delicious. I donít think that itís a dunkel...if it is itís the hoppiest dunkel ever. To me tastes like a browner, slightly maltier pale ale thatís dry hopped to high heaven. Slightly malty and light body, then a smash of hops on the backend thatís tasty and super refreshing. I drank about 10 of these after skiing and was very happy.

Poured a clear medium brown hue with hardly any head. Aroma was mild and basically of toasted malts and some mild vanilla. Flavor had some nice sweet malt notes and some hops, there was a grapefruit flavor in the background, but the beer was all around one dimensional. Palate was light. Carbonation was slightly elevated.

not really seeing as how this is either a wheat or a winter ale, as its mostly a lot of up front hops and some caramel tones. really more of an amber.

12 fl oz bottle from Bear World (Watertown NY), served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep copper with a nice tan foam. Aroma: Quite grassy, green, resinous, leafy, a touch soapy, some sweet malts beneath that are kinda fruity and playful, a little caramel, there are some dunkelweizen notes, but they clash with the assertive hops. Palate: Medium+ body and effervescence. Flav.: The hops are still front and centre, but become more tropical fruity, a bit of citrus, some Sauv. Blanc, then resin and green notes, the malts are even more hidden beneath the hops, mere hints of brown sugar, odd for the style; dry with fair bitterness and a leafy, fresh hops finish.

Dunkelweizen?? Nein.

This certainly doesnít drink like a dunkelweizen and I think that if most tried this beer without expecting that, the ratings would be higher. This is a crisp and well hopped darker beer, well made and easy to drink.

Bottle. Brown , carmel color, smells and tastes similar. Pretty bland though. Nice lasting head on the side of the glass though. Eh
