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.

Deep red color topped with a thick foamy head leaving plenty of lace. Sweet mostly hopy aroma wit malty notes and a slight bitterness. Slightly sweet yet sour flavor. Slightly hoppy turning malty with a hint of chocolate. Medium to heavy bodied.

Tap. Dark amber color with a fair head. How could they ruin a style I like. Rather weak and not flavorful.

Nice color with a fair head retention. Decent taste but without the spices that I expected. This is only my second winter beer so I wasn’t sure what I was to get.

Nice copper color with foamy beige head and a sweet malty/grainy head. Very light mouthfeel. Maybe its because I’m feel a cold coming on, but I didn’t taste much of anything. Kind of sweet with some spices in there. Nothing bad, but not much remarkable either.

Ernest (6906) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The usual foul Sam Adams aftertaste and a light simple aroma...micro for the masses. Absolutely ridiculous that this is referred to as a weizenbock.

Dark amber in color, light-bodied. Very sweet. Im not so sure about this being a Weizen Bock. Have a victory Weizen Bock if you want a real one. But this winter warmer is still a very good beer.

A little too sweet for a winter brew but the initial taste is pleasing.

Thin head. Dark amber colored--with light hop aroma. I would not call this a weizenbock by any strecth of the imagination. However, compared to a couple of recent winter beers that I have had, this is pretty decent. I think that it is above average but nothing more.

A great beer to drink in the cold months. It doesn’t compare to some of the best beers out there but I would drink it over most common beers.
