Grimm Brothers Brewhouse Snow Drop

What the brewers say

“Snowdrop features a light, crisp palate with just a hint of honey and molasses and a bouquet of noble German hops. In 2015, this beer won a Bronze in the Historical category at GABF.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “This smells like a peanut butter and banana sandwich with a drizzle of honey, packed between two slices of toasted whole-wheat bread. Light fruity pear esters and some tart acidity. A hint of sulfur with a touch of paperboard oxidation.”

Flavor: “Starts off with more of the peanut butter and banana sandwich, with a hint of honey. A soft wheat body, and the honey enhances the aromatics. Moderate and balanced hops flavors and bitterness, with notes of pine, cedar, and muted floral notes. Still a bit of paperboard oxidation. Moderately sweet and bitter but finishes reasonably dry.”

Overall: “Not sure where the peanut butter comes from, but it’s really fun. Nicely balanced, crushable, and easy to drink. The honey is noticeable without taking over, and it works nicely with the wheat and hops bitterness to give it just the right balance.”
