12 Beers: Anderson Valley Winter Solstice

Anderson Valley Brewing Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale

Aroma:Sweet brown sugar and fruit dominate the smell.

Appearance:Poured dark amber with a nearly nonexistent white colored head and very little lacing.

Taste:Sweet syrupy flavor with an unusual bitter and spice note that quickly takes over and lingers long after the beer is finished.

Overall:I did not care for this beer. The unusual bitter and spice flavors were off-putting and it left my mouth feeling dry.
