Pours amber with a fluffy head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor is very sweet and fruity. Some spices - clove? Very malty with lots of dark fruits. Much too sweet. Medium to full bodied and cloyingly sweet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Winter welcome ale pours a bronze color with very little head. Their is a sweet, caramel apple like aroma, with hints of a toasty malty undertone. Their is a slight roasted malty undertone in taste, with strong hints of caramel and sweet fresh apples. Easy to drink, and very nice feel, and nice full flavors. Overall a very unique winter warmer, sweet and fruiterer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Criminally underrated. Dark rich fruits embody this ale and provide a surprisingly boozy warming sensation for 6%. Simultaneously light, drinkable and very flavorful - this is a seasonal style that is subtle in winter spices and comforting in European style richness and balance. Quite honestly, this doesnít taste a million miles away from the classic Rochefort series of beers, so itís a mystery to me that itís rated so low.

Pours a a decent head, reddish brown with a slight amount of carbonation. Malty taste with notes of dried raisin and toffee. Body is medium with slightly dry, clean finish. Especially drinkable on a cool night. A nice cool weather drink.
