Man, as the air gets cold, and the snow approaches, what I wouldn’t give for a bottle of this stuff now. As I understand, the Pete’s brand is now gone. Most of their offerings were just OK in my book. But this winter offering of theirs was just the best. I’m not much of a fan of beer that has fruit flavors in it, but this one was an exception. I’ve tried a lot of great brews in my 51 years, but this one was certainly in the top 5 of all beers that I’ve enjoyed. Nothing like sitting on the back porch during a snowstorm, with flakes piling up on your head while you put sown a few of these. Certainly beats sitting on the beach drinking Corona. Anyone have a bottle of it stashed away that they want to sell?

Has a warming nut-meg flavor that is good in the winter time. This beer is well made and second favorite to the well made Strawberry Blonde.

one of the best winter brews every year if ya ask me the raspberry and nutmeg mix beautifully could be stronger though

Very popular when we can find it. The raspberry and subtle spicyness is ingeniuos. Pete's has won many a heart with this one.

Burnt orange with solid airy head. Sweet scent of warmed oranges. The flavor is tart, yet malty, with just the vaguest hint (not overpowering) of raspberry. Nicely flourished winter warmer.

One of my favourite brews. Worth spending the time to find the last stores still carrying it in the spring - this is a seasonal beer worth drinking year-round.

This is great seasonal stuff. Awesome raspberry and nutmeg aftertaste that’s not too overpowering but definitely apparent.

This beer seems to have lost half a step since becoming more mainstream...Back when it was harder to find it was simply the best. Still my favorite winter brew.
