Bottle. Copper with a short, foamy tan head. Hoppy aroma with sweet malt notes and caramel. Big citrus notes along with spicy hops. Taste dwells more on the sweeter and maltier side of things. Lots of caramel, light toffee, chewy malt, dark bread, citru notes and spicy hops. Body is medium and rather chewy. There’s a soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more big caramel notes, malt, citrus, light pine, spicy hops and toffee notes. Tasty!

a rich yet dry spiced beer, dark malts are kept dry by a large earthy presence, light spices add character without making it an overly spiced holiday ale,

Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2011
bottle NOV 5 11 dated-pours hazy amber dark orange with a fizzy and soapy slightly darker than egshell head. nose of slightly dank hops, carmel malt, lite diacytl and cleaner. not bad minus the lite diacytl. flavors start out sweet malt, almost too sweet but followed by a blast of piney/grapefruity hop cones. lite alcohol apparent and lots of candy malt sugary notes alongside the piney hops. it all comes together right at the end. somewhat unbalanced, but still somewhat interesting nonetheless. a fairly good beer from this brewery, which in recent years, has made some decent stuff i must say. One of the better macro micro breweries.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Pours a reddish brown with a tiny white head that fades away too quickly. Aroma is citrus hops, pine trees, and caramel. The taste is hoppy but not very bitter. Citrus hops well balanced with caramel malt. Tasty.

Nice seasonal ale in a glass pint off the tap at a local bar. Poured a nice copper color with a white head. Had a decent amount of hop to categorize it as an IPA, but not over the top bitter. Also, thankfully, not brewed with any nutmeg or pine or spice or anything.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2011
A very refreshing winter brew with a hopiness that is not to overbearing. The color is copper red with a little hint of cloudiness. The head is robust at first but quick disappears with a strong lasting lacing on the glass. The flavor has a smoot h taste that completly hides the nice 7.2% alcohol warmth. Nice job by Widmer!

scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 11, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a very nice red brown with a massive three inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of malt, grapefruit, pine, citrus, hops, resin, caramel and some warming alcohol. Similar, but lighter aroma. The body is decent. The finish is slightly bitter and a touch dry. Quite enjoyable and is easy to drink. A nice seasonal beer.
