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."

Ruby red tinted brown pour. Very clear and crisp with a nice thick light tan head. Piny hop aroma. Hints of sweet citrus, Very dry bitter flavor. Some caramel malt. Very bitter finish with alcohol. Crisp, but a little heavy.

From the bottle pours a clear, ruby-red colored body with a moderate, creamy, beige colored head. Tattered, ribbony sheets of delicate lacing line the glass. The nose shows like a hoppy red ale. The malt base shows caramel, toasted biscuit, and hints of cocoa. Substantial pine resin and orange peel hoppiness counters, balancing the aroma quite nicely. The flavor follows suit, aggressively hopped with resinous pine and sharp citrus rind, yet completely balanced by toasty, crystal malts and hints of milk chocolate. Mild winter spices lend an earthy overtone. Medium-plus on the palate, dry, and slightly alcoholic, this brew feels every bit its 7.1%, and then some. Pretty decent overall, this isn’t really anything to get excited about....although if I lived in Utah, this one might be a consistent wintertime go-to.

Sampled at the bockyhorsey tasting courtesy of hellbilly I believe. Thanks! Pours a chestnut brown with minimal head. Aroma contains a double-IPA amount of citrus hops. Taste is very very hoppy with a nice complimenting of nutmeg/cinnamon/caramel. Very bitter/bubbly/spicy on the palate. A very interesting beer.

12oz bottle thanks to Douglas88. Pours a nice mahogany with a nice tan head, great retention and lacing. Aromas of caramel, biscuits, light chocolate, and toasted malts. Flavors are sweet malts up front, with some spice, nutty flavors, and a nice hoppy finish. Decent beer, I could surely drink more of. Thanks again Douglas.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of raisins, chamomile tea and honey. Must have been a old bottle as there were not a large amount of hops...at all. Taste was sweet with caramel and a bit tea like. Medium bubbles.

botled. pours dark brown with large off white head. Smells of spruce and burnt caramel. Hoppy with flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes with a piney/floral aftertaste. Decent beer.

12oz bottle from, ironically, Wasatch. Pours dark mahogany in the glass but shines through a deep, clear copper when held up to light. It’s got a big 3-inch beige head that shows excellent retention and lacing. The aroma is very subdued and mainly sweet caramel malts mixed with floral pine hops. There are hints of orange peel in the nose as well. The taste has a quick hop kick up front before the big sweetness of the caramel malts take over. The finish is hoppy with some pine needles and herbs, slightly dry. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with strong carbonation and fairly prickly with the hops coming out surprisingly well. I enjoyed this as a well-balanced winter brew with a surprising hop kick thrown in.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle:clear auburn color, nice big creamy head. Nose of big caramel and brash bitter hops, lots of pine and citrus with caramel spicyness. Flavor is like a candy cane with the sweet malts and complex fruity notes. Finishes on the hoppy side. Nice strong winter warmer for the ut.
