IBU: 13
Yeast: Hybrid ale yeast
Calories: 182

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Chris (BA’s heresy22)
Price: N/A

Consumed: April 17, 2014
Misc.: Best by June 29, 2014

Poured a golden, straw, hazy color with 4-to-5 fingers of frothy, spongy, white head. Good amount of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention.

Smelled orange, citrus hops, floral hops, wheat, honey grass, lemon and a bit of Sprite soda.

Tasted a bit better than the smell. Got Sprite soda, sweet sugary notes, citrus hops, floral hops, honey, lemon grass, wheat, kiwi and green grapes.

Light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt finish.

A pretty good wheat ale. Would be a great beer after mowing the lawn. Nice for the summer.

This is a good American wheat. I usually choose a Belgian Witt but Snapshot is a nice change. It isn't heavy feeling and doesn't bite back like some American wheat beers. It is a little lighter/thinner tasting than a Belgian Witt but very drinkable. I also like the fact that New Belgium is employee owned.
