Bottle. Misty deep amber ale. Moderate ivory head. Well-lacing. Aroma: sweet nectar, caramel, floral hops. Medium body. Moderately sweet nectary / caramely taste accompanied by solid hop bitterness. Medium long hoppy finish. Quite tasty. GarrettB (1715) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 29, 2017
December 22nd, 2014 - More snow, more December, more winter warmers, and tonight’s is the aptly named Brrr. Deep and dark, it has a very hoppy scent, with with grapefruit, and dotted with some aromas of caramel and raspberry and a touch of bubblegum. The flavor is also quite hoppy, much more so than I would have expected. The carbonation is strong with a solid mouthfeel and a medium ti medium heavy body, and a long twangy grapefruit aftertaste. It’s not my favorite collection of flavors but it is intense, and probably a little better for California drinkers used to puckering punches of hops.

Originally rated on 12/31/08. I was expecting something a little darker and heavier but this turned out more like an IPA than a winter beer. Hoppy in aroma and flavor, some spice and malts show up in the taste. It leans toward the skunky side but it was tolerable. An o.k. brew JPDIPSO (6317) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Copper to light umber color with a smallish light tan head and a fairly heavy sheet of lace. Somewhat odd aroma with caramel malt and vegetable scent. The palate is very nice with a soft effervescence and just enough heft to not make it feel wimpy. Light start of sweetness is quickly swept away by an somewhat sulfuric mix. Slight metallic feel late. Bitter and nutty finish. Odd. 1/12

This is a Hoppy Red Brrr. I'm not sure if this is the right category for tasting. Nice combination though.

Bottle, BB 03.08.17 (from boxbeers). Pours red amber with beige head. The head stays for a long time. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, pine, malt, toffee. Finish is pine bitter. Covers the ABV really well. Overall: bit macro (it has a kind of really clean/neutered feeling as other Widmer stuff), but otherwise nice, sweet, caramel-malt driven beer with some piney hops.
