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

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Thanks, Mom! Pours clear, copper-red with a creamy, off-white foam head. Has a rather nice aroma of toasted caramel, pine, orange, and sweet bread. Flavor follows reasonably well. Quite citrusy with light to medium sweetness, plenty of toasty bread, modest bitterness. Light to medium bodied with mouth-filing, lively carbonation. Slightly sticky to finish, mild sweetness, some citrus, pine and grass hops, light toast. Decent enough beer, though the overall character seems to falter after the aroma and limp a bit thereafter.

bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours darkly ruddy with a foamy off-white head. Pineapple? Maybe. And some roast malt. Near full body. Flavor is roast malt with a lot of hop flavor. Nicely bittingly bitter. This is dang flavorful stuff. Pineapple? Yeah, maybe, probably, ok, they say it is. Why not?

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Draft at Capone’s. Pours copper with nose of caramel malt and earthy jops. Tastes malty with some hops and fruity notes. The Citra hop stands out in this, providing late citric bite.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 11, 2013
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.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
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

DuffMan (9592) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown, clear, brief beige head. What is that smell? It’s like rotting grass. It’s like when you mow your lawn and dump your grass clippings in the corner of the ears then forget about them until a week later in 30 degree heat. Not good. Flavour is brown bread and gross composty hops. A DUNKELWEZEN? As if.
