great color with some sediment, lasting sweet alcohol throughout, huge fan and a great buy for safeway gwfrankpsu (231) - McKinleyville, California, USA - OCT 12, 2002
Fruity, with a great finish. Can't wait to have more. GABF 2002.......... Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 7, 2002
Bottle GABF '02: Light flowery hops aroma, orange/red color with a good head, light bitter ending. A lot of other stuff and I know that this one is worth getting it again. A unique ale for sure. PhillyBeer2112 (2903) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2002
GABF 2002: Cloudy amber. Rich piny citric earthy hops and caramel malt. Rich fruity flavor. Strong and alcoholic. CE619 (81) - san diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2002
Nice toffee flavors predominate. smooth, well-integrated beer. Some lingering bitterness at the end.

Nice aroma and different hops flavor. Pretty calm for a winter ale.......... NWHopHead99 (58) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2002
Of all the winterbrews, this is perhaps the easiest for everyone at the party to enjoy. I'd almost call it the 'candy' winter brew, because the fruity, flavorful taste almost borders on a simple malt beverage, but the hops quickly return it to the beer catagory. I won't buy it in cases next year, but I'll get a couple bottles to enjoy. AxeMaster221 (342) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2002
This just doesnt do it for me. Is it my imagination or do I taste juniper berry in there? ChrisBeest (43) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2002
I liked it, but it's not my favorite seasonal of Northwest beer............. ttboy8099 (73) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2002
Nice winter brew..............................................
