IBU: 13
Yeast: Hybrid ale yeast

Special Processing: Add Lactobacillus (souring bacteria) to a portion of the overall wort, which produces lactic acid that gives a characteristic sourness and mouthfeel. That acidic portion is then added to other portion of the wort that was fermented with the Ale yeast. So two worts – a sour and a regular – are blended together to make Snapshot.

Enjoyable, but I personally prefer a less tart finish, IMHO...

Pours a thinly opaque (but unusually so for an unfiltered wheat) deep straw producing almost 2.5 fingers of white, foamy, somewhat lasting head that leaves a webby wash of lace. Aroma is wheat & grainy bread, lemon, orange, a hint of green apple & grassy hops, very faint banana & something mineral like. Taste is white bread, wheat & a grain hint; lemon, tart with more green apple than in the nose; a phenolic hit & a tiny bit of pepper & bitterness in the crisp finish. Aftertaste is slightly lactic with little bitterness & a flash of coriander. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation, crisp but not clean leaving the faint phenolic presence on the tongue.

On tap at Craft Beer Market in Calgary.
Hazy, murky light yellow with a soapy white head. Foam leaves some streaky lace while it shrinks to a floating cap.
Smell is wheat, and spicy yeast aromas.
Taste is much the same, slightly sweet, wheat malt. Some Wit beer character like orange citrus, coriander, but also a bit of sourness.
This beer has a high amount of carbonation, crisp mouthfeel. This and the acidity keep it refreshing and light to drink.
Overall, a good tasting example for the style. Nice to see Alberta getting lots from New Belgium.
