Anderson Valley – Winter Solstice – Winter Warmer
Appearance: Clear amber, huge foamy cream colored lingering head, thick lacing.
Aroma: Spices and sweet oats.
Taste: Sweet oats and grains, dark fruit and hints of citrus.
Mouthfeel: Creamy consistency, light carbonation, medium body and a short wet finish.
The “winter warmer” spices overpower most of what this beer has to offer. It finishes with a bit of bitter citrus, mostly sustained sweet. It feels to me that it is missing something. -77/100-
