Weyerbacher Winter Ale

Weyerbacher Winter Ale
Been a number of days since I last blogged. Half busy, half lazy. Would have loved to blog on Friday. I had an endoscopy and was on serious drugs. 90% out of my gourd for the entire evening. Alas, I couldn’t drink while on the meds. The weekend was filled with Boston sports misery (Bruins + Patriots lost in epic last minute fashion).

Tonight I’m sitting down with a Weyerbacher. The Winter Ale to be precise. I hate that winter is coming, but at least I get some new seasonal beers to try.

This ale is a dark, dark brown in color. Don’t let the color fool you: it’s only 5.6 ABV (smells like 10%) and very drinkable. As you can see from the picture below, it pours with a lot of head. My pour wasn’t that aggressive either.

Not really bitter and not really sweet. Balanced. Roasted malts. Slight caramel and coffee.

Regular readers will know that I’m intrigued by Weyerbacher’s offerings, but usually disappointed. The Winter Ale does not follow this trend. Definitely a good beer. Borderline great beer.Weyerbacher Winter Ale
