Collaborator Moore Holiday Ale
On tap at the 2017 HAF. Pours a clear golden hue with a medium white head. A big sweet husky nose. Toast, fresh pils malt, earthy base, medium noble hop sweetness. Solid. Hard for such a beer to stand out at the HAF.

Widmer Brothers Hefeweizen
Has a pleasant light aroma and a cloudy wheat body, however leaves much to be desired. Mostly tastes of malt and lacks the wheat smoothness. With eyes closed I probably would think I’m drinking a light beer. Has an odd bitter finish. Just overall nothing to be excited about.

Widmer Brothers Brrr Seasonal Ale
Darkbronze, clear, nice yellow creamy foam. Mild alcoholic aroma, with a hint of fruity toffee. Not much of a taste to begin with, hint of sweetnes, and caramel. with strong alcohol and hops in the aftertaste. High in carbon.

This is a hefe found everywhere in CA. It is the worst hefe you can find in California but I still buy it because it is often the only hefe at your local store. This makes the German people cry😭

Widmer Brothers Hefe Twisted Citrus
12 oz bottle poured. Wouldn't be a tasting with luttonm without having a beer that we can't figure outbgowborbwgyvwe are drinking. Assumed twist off, but a pry off cap. Golden orange pour. Sweet candy fruit aroma. Flavor is a slightly soapy grapefruit. Offputting lingering flavor. Couldn't be further from the base beer. Odd, strange, and weird. Hmmm.

Widmer Brothers Hefe Twisted Citrus
Bottle in Seattle. Eternal thanks to Andrew for saving this and generously opening at our MNF tasting. Low head, pale light cloudy yellow gold. Odd grape cough syrup aroma, not good. Pale grape and apple body. Watered down cough syrup all the way. Almost no sense whatsoever of a wheatbeer character, besides some offputting sweetness. Terrible.

Widmer Brothers Marionberry Hibiscus Gose
bottle, old rating - Amber pour with a fruity, spicy aroma. The flavor is tart, but not extremely so, with berries and spices. The flavors maybe aren't as assertive as I'd like, but it's interesting.

Widmer Brothers Oatmeal Porter
Bottle. Poured a brown color with an off white head. Roast, chocolate, and oats. Not bad for a bottle that I know has been sitting in my basement way too long.

Widmer Brothers Okto Festival Ale (Oktoberfest)
From Oct 2005 An Oktoberfest ale? I bought a bottle of this in a mixed six pack of Oktoberfests: Poured a nice, ahem, amber and the head was pleasing and somewhat persistant. The smell was fairly strong but I couldn't say it was malty or hoppy...it's vegetal? The taste almost reminded me of cinnamon but that would have been a welcomed note at this point. I'm not the biggest fan of the style but this is one that I'm sure that I won't try again.

Well done for the style, it's just not that great of a style. So the beer is amber and great looking and cleanly made, but doesn't taste all that fullfillling. widmer portland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This stuff is everywhere. Kind of surprised that it hasn't been eaten up by in-bev, with its distribution I thought that Maybe it already had.

22oz bottle pours out copper rust color with a small head. Nose is big rich caramel toffee some old hops. Taste is more of the nice rich malts and some dead hops. I guess I should have got into this a few years ago.

Widmer Brothers Reserve Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout
My Bottom Line:
This liquid dessert juxtaposes sweet chocolate, raspberry jam and cough syrup in a thick mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the brown-hued black.
-The cougy syrup allusions are too medicinal to my liking.
-Alcohol heat is prominent.
-The flavour profile is tad rough.
-This is too sweet for me to truly enjoy it, but it will have be appreciated by those in the mood for sugar and decadence.

Bottle.
