COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. On the palate Samuel Adams Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.

OK, now this is something to begin to turn novices onto, because the sweet, bitter, minty, floral components are all separable. I don't know a lot about weizenbocks, and I haven't had a whole lot of Sam Adams, but this is the best I've had (and I'm not even a big fan of the style!). Aroma is nice, flavor has a bit more sour bits than necessary?

Nothing wrong with this. It's a nice Winter considering it's from Sam Adams. Had worse had better. Nothing wrong with it.

Pours in dark amber in color with strong malty aroma. Slight bitter this one sticks out for its malts. This truly is a nice winter warmer!

Another pretty decent selection from Sam Adams. . .doesn't have the great weizen bock flavours of sweet nuts, cloves and bananas, but it quite a bit more interesting that othe macro swills. . .light red brown, some floral hops in the nose. . .slightly interesting malty flavour, I would drink another.

Very surprisingly tasty seasonal beer. Dark caramel color. I would not have imagined it was a Weizen Bock.

This is an interesting spiced beer. It's a fairly heavy darker beer. I enjoy only one at a time, otherwise it's be a little overpowering.

This is the kind of beer that you only have one of. In fact, the one I had may be the only I ever have. That being said, there were some definite positive qualites to this brew. Firstly, the appearance was nonpariel; I stared and stared at the delicate lacing patterns unfolding on top of the molten, malty mass. The flavor, aside from the obvious emphasis on malt, was very fruity and even a smidgeon floral. The fruit flavors were predominately raspberry and even a little peach, and all was superceded by a mulled character. Just one is fine, but I don't think I could bring myself to buy a six-pack.
