Magic Hat Odd Notion Winter 09
Another beer in the Merry Winter Sampler is the Magic Hat Odd Notion Winter '09. Magic Hat makes an Odd Notion beer for every season of every year. This version is a reddish amber color with a light head. It smells malty with hints of raspberry. The taste mostly focuses on sour fruits, and I am picking up apple and raspberry. The alcohol content is 4.5% ABV. There is not much carbonation, and the beer is light flavored. The sourness is prevalent, and I thought this was an interesting mix for a winter beer. I think the taste came around the more I drank it and I really liked it by the end of the glass.
