COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. On the palate Samuel Adams Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.

imdownthepub (15524) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Red brown beer with carbonated head. Preferable to the SA Lager if only that there is some flavour coming through. Still another American beer that is too similar to cola, thin sweet short and glutinous, but there is an attempt to get the malted wheat through the mess. Good alcohol though.

DSG (15432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. 5.6% ABV. Very pretty amber color with a big slowly-diminishing beige head. Spicy nose with ginger and some hints of cinnamon, some malt and caramel and notes of wheat. Flavor is sweet with malt and caramel, spices, rather faint hints of wheat and some light sourness towards the finish. Light to medium-bodied. Doesn’t taste like a Weizen Bock and nothing great whatever style it actually is. OK.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Bottle. Pours copper with small head. Light lacing. Caramel aroma with a bit of spice. Wheat really comes through in the taste. Could maybe use a bit more bitterness.

Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2002
Not very full-bodied, but flavorful with a nice spicy aftertaste. If I had to choose a seasonal beer this would be it.

3.5
Lubiere (14257) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
Dark amber bock with a generous light moka head, lacing. Sweet caramel and fruity esters in aroma, like stewed prunes. In mouth, decent sweet malt with light bananas, caramel, and roasted nuts. Short in mouth. Medium bodied. Nice lighter weizenbock. Bottle is about 1 yr old.

3.3
crossovert (14134) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours a deep copper red with a foamy white head. It doesn’t look much like a bock, but it does look very nice. The smell is malty with a hint of caramel and alcohol. The hops come through a little bit and there is a hint of orange, but the spices don’t really come through. It isn’t super fragrant. The spices and whatnot come through in the flavor. This one has a diacetyl problem like I have tasted in several recent SA beers. The cinnamon and ginger are pretty noticeable, along with the buttery bready malts. The 2 aforementioned spices have a little bit of spicy bite in the finish. The orange comes through with a bit of tanginess. It is an interesting brew, not really a bock, but what else woudl you call it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-19-2010 02:21:44

Clear and deep amber, with minimal head. Very malty aroma and flavor. Mostly caramel, with hints of vanilla. Wheat is detectable, but only nominally.
