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. Itís our toast to Utah."

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Utah State Liquor Store in Kimball Junction, Utah on 11/02/2012. Colour: Dark brown with red hues and low head with lots of lacing. Nose: Heaping mounds of toffee infused malt. Hint of maple syrup. Chocolate dipped cherries. Shortbread. Total sugar-based nose. Taste: medium-high sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Layers of varying degrees of cocoa percentages. Espresso shots. Hearty malt again displays maple mid-late palate. Good for a bottle or two, but to sweet to enjoy over an entire evening.

Berry aroma, very nice! Out of a bottle (not my choice...) so no idea about appearance. Immediate grape and malt flavour with caramel followed by a strong hoppy finish. The wife described it tasting like a ski cabin and I can understand that. Not my usual style but complex.
