2011 Seasonal BARREL AGED BRRRBON is an amazing beer, enjoyed it today at the Foodie Festival in Westport CT. Its one of the more impressive offerings from one of the most impressive craft brewers nationwide. One of the highlights of an event that featured a diverse variety from Widmer, BluePoint, Goose Island, Southern Tier and a host of locals.
Widmer Brothers states: FOLLOWING THE INITIAL BREWING PROCESS OF BRRR, THE BEER WAS GIVEN A FRESH CHARGE OF HOPS DURING SECONDARY FERMENTATION AND THEN PUT INTO KENTUCKY BOURBON BARRELS AND AGED FOR FOUR MONTHS. AFTER BARREL AGING, THE BEER WAS ALLOWED A TERTIARY FERMENTATION FOR FINAL CONDITIONING BEFORE RELEASE.
Nice auburn copper pour.
Frothy with sweet smell reminiscent of oak with vanilla. Little bourbon smell mild not overpowering. Texture is slick with taste of sweetness coupled with some alcohol but not negative. Solid hops composition with a little bit of a burnt earthy smell and feel. Finishes spicy like the Falconer IPA but not as hoppy just peppery smoothness. Really enjoy the texture and taste of this beer. There’s essentially no cloying bitterness as its nicely hopped but maintains a 40 IBU and its potent at 9%.
It’s not hot like a bourbon but if you don’t like bourbon or whiskey you probably won’t like this but I highly recommend it as one of my favorites from Widmer where I think the SXNW and the Pitch Black and the Falconer IPA are spectacular.

Bomber, 2010 vintage. Rich caramel malt aroma with notes bourbon, vanilla and oak. Pours cloudy caramel colored with a thin white head that has little retention and lacing. Starts with caramel malt flavor with a little bit of vanilla. Finishes smooth with bourbon and oak flavors and a touch of booziness at the very end. Pretty nice winter ale. koleminer20 (3976) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2016
22 oz bottle shared by Gustav. The pour is a thin caramel tinted amber with a thick bubbly egg shell colored collar. The aroma is pretty decent. There is a sweet malt and a string hop. Light vanilla and bourbon are present. There is a hint of metallic on the back end. The flavor is interesting. There is a big malt and some light hops. It’s like a subdued Bigfoot. I like it. The hops are toned down and the sweetness comes through a little more. The mouth feel is lighter and well carbonated. The aftertaste is all sweet malt, bourbon, and a hint of vanilla and oak. Interesting brew ebone1988 (2123) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus. 2013 vintage. Aroma is caramel, toffee, bourbon, barrel, hops. Appearance is dark red, copper brown, light tan head. Taste is very subtle. Some caramel, toffee, some earthy hops, some booze, mostly intensely subtle. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, some booze and caramel in the aftertaste. Overall, I’d say this is past it’s prime. Good, but not great. Rask0lnikov (1472) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2016
