Widmer Brothers Reserve Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout
2013 edition. Pours deep red - decidedly not black for an RIS. Good head. Aroma of chocolate, raspberry, molasses. Taste is similar. The raspberry really stands out, and is quite pleasant. Lots of chocolate in the finish, too. Doesn’t have the overwhelming sensory blast of a typical RIS, but I’m happy about that, it lets the raspberry stand out. Glad I drank it.

Widmer Brothers 30th Anniversary Collaboration #4: Craftylicious
November 20th, 2014 - Red clear, this collaboration looks tasty from the get go, pouring from the tastefully designed bottle and label (complete with an accordion, because why not?) The aroma is light and gentle hopped, with a touch of tanginess. I associate some of the scents with mango, or a fresh orange in its sweetness and acidity. The first sip reveals a light palate, sloshing carelessly like orange juice, and indeed, the flavor is abound with orange as well. A second and third sip add some layers to this citrus bounty, giving it a sweet cream touch which ends up blending to mimic an orange creamsicle.

Widmer Brothers Rotator IPA Series - Falconer’s IPA
Amber color with a taller, ecru colored head. Nice lace. Citrus, pine and spice in the aromas. A hint of caramel in the background. Not enough malt depth for me. Seems thin in flavor for the lack of malt. Malt does show up a bit in the finish, but I still am looking for something to chew on. 3/13

Widmer Brothers Brrr Seasonal Ale
Consume 01.30.2017 as a single. Paid $1.29 for a 12floz bottle with August 3, 2016 as its bottling date. Appears a dark nut chestnut amber - check. Sweet, raisin-like aroma - check, but also a bit buttery and boozy. Hmmm...this is pretty smooth. It’s not something that bombards my mouth. Medium-full bodied, and leathery sweet. I consider this worth drinking as a middle of the road American strong amber. It ain’t offensive.

Lovely color thatsa bit hazy and deeply copper with a large foamy ivory head. Lovely bitter earthy resinous nose. Crisp but largely bitter flavor that’s a touch hot but mostly floral and piney with a bitter grapefruit pith. A bit leafy and citrusy all around and could be a bit more balanced or clear.

Thanks altonbrownd for the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing well filtered caramel brown with quickly dissipating brown leather colored foam. The nose shows a lot of sweet malts. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of a lot of sweet malt with a light tea astringency finishing on a lightly sharp IPA bitterness.
