New Belgium Brewing Snapshot

What the brewers say

Aromas of citrus hops jump from the nose, accompanied by the sweetness of coriander and grains of paradise. Brewed with wheat and pale malt, Snapshot pours a hazy, lemon-yellow with bright-white lacing. But the real enticement is the snap of tart from in-process blending of Lactobacillus to pucker up Snapshot’s base.

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Floral and bright. Good sweet malt character with a light lactic, tangy, acidic lemon spritz. Strong Belgian yeast spice character.”

Flavor: “Moderate sweet wheat malt profile. A bit of lactic acidity in the front end. Some lemon notes. Very malty with some acidic fruit. High carbonation, finishes dry but with a lingering grainy sweetness.”

Overall: “A very well-balanced, tasty, and approachable wheat beer. Enjoyable and refreshing. Lightly tart, just enough to make it interesting and accentuate the wheat. Sweetness is nicely balanced with the acidity and bitterness. Tastes like a wheat beer with the lemon built in!”
