Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a big spicy rye mixed with a decent hop. Flavor is about the same, a nice rye to start then comes a lingering hop. Widmer really went for the rye in this one and it really works. Just enought spicy rye with a minor piney hop.

BelgianBeerGal (3198) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Draft at F&H Fort Worth. Nice orange color with a foamy white head. Very fruity and piney aroma. Pithy bitterness in the flavor with a long finish. Fine.

ReggieDunlap (3084) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Pours a clear amber/caramel with a medium off white head. Aromas very caramely with mild earthy/rye spice. Flavor follows suit...caramely sweet and doughy but earthy bitterness too. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/rye and bitter/dry.

JStax (3011) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Poured from a refrigerated 12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker copper with a beige head of foam. The aroma is heavily indicative of a spiced Christmas beer. Not much in the way of hop presence. This bottle is likely a shadow of what it once was in the hop department. Kinda wish I would have had it several months ago.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

solid beer all the way worth a nice balance between the hops and malts. the bitterness packs a small punch with just enough room left over for noticeable malts.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - NOV 22, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a crystal clear mahogany color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is strong pine and herbal hops. Flavor is also strong pine and herbal with a little citrus and malt sweetness in the background. Finish is fairly bitter with a touch of astringency. Medium body. A nice beer.

alobar (2791) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a white soapy head. Minimal aroma of bread and yeast. Bread, yeast, hops at the backend for flavor. Good bitter ending. Very nice.

kaser (2737) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Maybe the rye threw me off. This is an usual beer. Pours dark gold almost copper. Hardly any head at all. A faint grapefruit aroma and not much else. floral with the rye hint I'm trying to get in to. Mild hops and a little bitter. It's ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OldGrowth (2673) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pint at West Park Tavern. Good aroma, sweet. Kind of peachy, orange,, piney. Clean brownish orange color. Small head that faded quick. No lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish. Good, better than I’d of guessed, but I might have a bias against widmer. Pleasant. Not overwhelmingly hoppy. But solid.
