Is it me, or are the seasonals coming earlier every year? (Next up: Christmas pilsners and summer stouts!) I was in a Freddy's yesterday and on my pass through the beer aisle, I noted the appearance of Widmer Okto. (In fact, my attention was drawn by a woman exclaiming with alarm when she saw it. A lover of the sun.) As yesterday was a cool, rainy day, it seemed appropriate--if premature.
It is, however, a most tasty beer and not a bad late-summer sipper (last year's review here). So things could be worse.
