tap - Pours amber orange and has a pleasant citrus accented aroma. It tastes moderately bitter, definitely on the high end of bitterness for the style, with a little caramel backing leading into a crisp bitter finish. Itís medium bodied and quite tasty.

very nice ale i drink it room temperature and chilled. as described there is a nice tasty building malt flavor and a pleasant hop of light pine and citrus near the finish. the finish is ripe with caramel and sweet while the mouthfeel is smooth with just a sudsy roll of the hops. no heavy alcohol in my estimation and it seems to age decently well.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Widmer Brothers Brrr Seasonal Ale is a very clear, sparkling copper ale topped with a dense, light beige foam that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a rich pine aroma with sweet caramel in the nose. Itís pretty full bodied, very smooth and foamy. The finish is clean and nimble. It tastes pretty bitter and a little sweet. The balance is really nice. Pine resin is the loudest flavor. The bitterness turns to something more like juniper by the time the caramel sweetness emerges just after the swallow. This one kind of took me by surprise. Itís a pretty serious beer and itís really easy to drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass. Deep amber color with almost a finger of dirty white head.
Rich smelling: caramel, lemon zest and grapefruit.
Equally rich tasting: malty beginning followed by a quick bite of bitterness, ending with a glowing balance of the two. Citrus really kicks in in the middle and holds its own.
Soft texture, medium bodied and low carbonation. Fits perfectly in the beer.
A really solid beer and very enjoyable.

This is a very good amber ale. Amber color of course, and low carbonation. Flavor has light malt and sweet caramel. Flavor is a balance of sweet caramel and citrus hops, giving this a sort of barleywine character, if not as strong.

Pours an amber color with some thin hoops. Smells of cardboard and hops. Taste is okay. Nothing special.
