COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This winter wheat beer uses dark malting to provide subtle toasty notes. We then single-hop and dry-hop this beer with Citra hops from our friend Brads farm. Interesting pineapple notes from the Citra hop provide a stark contrast to the toasty notes in the body. An engaging and sessionable Winter Seasonal. ABV: 5% IBUs: 62

ben4321 (6015) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 1/31/13

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet and sugary, with leaves, tea, fruity notes, and a little caramel
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-brown color with a tan head and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes mid-plus sweet, lots of odd leafy notes, some tea flavor, and a light-mid bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it drinks cleanly, with average carbonation, and a mild dryness
Overall Impression: This is some solid stuff, not a favorite for me, but sold stuff. There are a few different things going on, but overall, it works pretty well. For a winter beer with a nice low ABV, I could see this being an easy one to session. Interesting, but still clearly not great.

slowrunner77 (10757) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Dry roasted malts and light citra hops clash a little more on my palate than the nose. Maybe in part cause this is a light fizzy beer (not what I want in a winter seasonal - session or not). OK at best.
