COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wasatch Winterfest is a rich amber ale with caramel malt flavors and a large hop presence. Brewed with the finest Northwestern pale and caramel malts then generously hopped with Columbus and Amarillo hops. Crafted in the spirit and style of the Sierra Nevada Celebration. Inspiration? "This new seasonal was brewed to warm you through the cold winter months! Our Winterfest Ale makes a wonderful compliment to an epic day on the mountain, and the perfect companion around the fire. Its our toast to Utah."

RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 41. Colo is a dark mahogany with good carbonation and a soft and tight tan head. Aroma is sweet with notes of dried fruit. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is mild dried fruit, a touch of peppery malt and a spicy hop note that gives it a mellow bitterness. Overall its a good brew and somehow it has a winter like feel.

MNAle (173) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Best by 2/26/16; consumed on 12/24 and 12/25/15. Deep amber/ruby, cloudy, coaxed a 1 inch tan, creamy, bubbly head with an agressive pour into an Imperial Irish pub pint. Light carbonation. Clumpy, sticky lacing as the head recedes. Aroma of hops (slightly citrus) and malt (faintly chocolate). Substantial mouth feel: slightly thick feeling for the style. Mild, but slightly bitter, initial taste, sweetly malty, with a more bittering in the middle and the finish. This is a very easy to enjoy beer. No spectatular hops flavor, or really any other notable dominating falvor; more of a malt body. But, it is still enjoyable to drink. I would have expected more of an alcohol presence in a "warmer". Even so, a very tasty beer.

emacgee (4672) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Pours a ruby dark copper with a one finger frothy light tan head. The nose is malty and sweet, raisiny, nice pungent nose. Good malt complexities. Flavor is a step down. Less held together. Sweet, malty, mild peanut shell flavor. Palate is a little bland and watery. So much potential going in.
