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."

Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a clear amber with a small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a raisin malt and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a swet raisin and light hop. Very easy to drink, very good American strong ale from Wasatch.

rougeau13 (2139) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Clear, dark, reddish-amber with a moderate cream colored head that laces nicely. Aroma of piney and herbal hops, nuts, hay and caramel. The taste is a malty, but not really sweet, backbone with a moderate bitterness throughout and a noticable alcohol presence at an abv that isn’t really that high. Medium bodied with a long bitter finish. Somewhat unrefined, but definitely a good beer.

A-pours a dark mahogony colored beer with a very loose small bubbly tan colored head. S-the nose has some roasted malts, a little overly sweet caramel, very sticky hop resign aroma, pine sap, wood, oily citrus in the back. T-the taste is similar, slightly burnt wood and malt, overly sweet caramel, very resignous, lots of sugars left behind and it shows in the feel as well. very piney in the back with sticky citrus notes and moderately bitter. M-the feel is a little fuzzy with the residual sugars, the finish is nice, it is rather dry and crisp, well carbonated. D-not bad, has some flaws. overly sugary and sweet with a ton of sticky malts and hops. has a decent balance and a nice finish.

and little david is working that bowtie .. . Pours a deep tan, light foamas! .. . very light spice and molasses, like a Lite xmas ale .. . way to simple and dumbed down, but it’ll make you ask dumb questions ...

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2011
12oz bottle. Reddish brown pour with a decent amount of off-white head. Diggin’ the aroma - nice balance of citrus/pine hops and caramel malt. Flavor is balanced as well but a bit disappointing - slightly sweet and bitter.

Gription79 (2440) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 4, 2011
Dark amber color, nice tan head. Lovely floral hop essence and bready malts in the nose. The hops give a resiny coating to the tongue followed by a malt sweetness cut by a mellow bitterness. Really a quite unique beer, perfect for the cold Utah Winter nights.
