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

Bottle. Surprisingly hoppy aroma and flavor for a winter ale. Good overall flavor. Slightly sweet at first with a good hop bitterness in the finish.

HogTownHarry (6278) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2011
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours clear light copper with a large fairly long-lasting frothy/creamy/fizzy beige head. Dry aroma, mild roast, slightly metallic weak herbal bitterness, a hint of cocoa. Taste is ... not bad - cocoa, a bit of weak coffee, tries to be sweet, but mostly vaguely bitter, no alcohol. Light body, mild carbonation, a nice light dry herbal nutty/malty finish. Maybe a bit watery, but tasty and no metal after an initial hint of it.

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Bottle. Light to moderate malt notes of cookie and nutty, light flowers for the hops, dough for the yeast, with hints of toffee, brown sugar and faint rubber. Head is small, wispy, white with some spotty and slippery lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear copper. Flavor starts moderately acidic and lightly bitter, then finishes lightly acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a soft carbonation. Okay aromas, but there is not much else appealing, like the lack of any sweetness in this Dunkelweizen.

I’m not sure of a dunkelweizen, but has the aroma of fruity citrus weizen. Nice hop malt balance, light medium body, light brown color, overall a decent beer, or session beer.

Twist of bottle. Looks like iced tea. Smell is a little metallic. Decent co2. Taste seems harsher than 5%. Malty thru & thru. Hops in the background and leaves a medium bittter finsh.

Bottle 355 ml
Aroma Solid fresh hop character, mineral bitterness with sweet malt below. Very, very refreshing. I love that straight clean nose. 8-
Appearance dark amber with medium plus tanned top.3+
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied with thinner sides. Black tea, citrus, lemon grass. Thinner finish. Great hop character unfortunately paired with shallow underdeveloped body. Quiet a shame.
