COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wasatch Winterfest is a rich amber ale with caramel malt flavors and a large hop presence. Brewed with the finest Northwestern pale and caramel malts then generously hopped with Columbus and Amarillo hops. Crafted in the spirit and style of the Sierra Nevada Celebration. Inspiration? "This new seasonal was brewed to warm you through the cold winter months! Our Winterfest Ale makes a wonderful compliment to an epic day on the mountain, and the perfect companion around the fire. It’s our toast to Utah."

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle at bockyhorsey’s pad. Pours a deep amber color with a beige head. Looks and smells a bit like a dark IPA - loaded with grapefruity hops. Smooth in flavor with a note of figgy pudding. Nice, but the sweetness grows to be a bit cloying.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle thanks to douglas88. Pours a dark color that resembles cherrywood varnish with a thin khaki head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy with some goond tangerine and pine notes, some brown sugar, burnt caramel, and a hint of leather. The flavor is some general piney hops with a current of caramel and toffee beneath it. Some grapefruit qualities emerge after a few sips, as well as a faint hazelnut note. The finish is dry and pleasantly hoppy. This here is a pretty good brew.

nickd717 (3573) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Bottle at Wasatch Brew Pub. For my money, this and Uinta Anniversary Barleywine are the best Utah has to offer. Medium- to dark-brown color with tan head. Hoppy and spicy aroma. Flavor is caramel malt, some roastiness, spices, coffee, maple, and hops on the finish. Very tasty and satisfying.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a small head. Aroma of citrus hops and grapefruit. Flavor is rather hoppy but blends nicely with sweet caramel malt. Very nice, more like an IPA than an ASA or a winter ale for that matter. Yum! 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2009
A new brew that pours with a delicious brown hue and a good head that isn’t self conscious leaving a pancake type spatter to linger. Aromas of wet coffee bean, mildly roasted nuts, and maple. The nectar weight on this puppy is rather full and inviting with a nice fiber soft texture. Coffee bean and cocoa make a face plant with some cake bread and nuts. The brew finishes long. Good stuff.

Poured Poured a crystal clear deep copper color with an off-white head. Fruity and nutty malt with a citrus hop aroma. Malty flavor with toasty notes. Hoppy grapefruit finish and a long dry hop bitterness. Light-medium bodied. Very clean. Nice beer.
