Day #308 – Widmer Brothers Brrr Seasonal Ale

November 5, 2011

I’m really starting to get into the winter seasonals that are coming out. Today’s blog comes from Widmer Brothers.

Widmer Brothers Brrr Seasonal Ale

Widmer Brothers is based out of Portland, Oregon. It is an Amber Ale that rings in at 7.2%. This is their winter seasonal.

Forgive the drinking vessel; I was out on a bike ride when I stopped for this beer. The appearance is fairly clear with a reddish orange color. White foamy head on this.

The aroma is very hoppy; hoppier than I was expecting. The hops are spicy and piney with a bit of caramel sweetness. Almost candy sweet.

The candy sweetness comes through in the flavor with a hoppy bitterness that comes near the finish. A lingering bitterness fills the finish. Not bad at all!
