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.

Poured into a wheat beer glass from the bottle. A murky yellow color with some fast rising bubbles and thick head that sticks to the side of the glass. A classic wheat beer look. Smells of citrus notes. Tastes of citrus with a unique sweetness/tartness at the end. This part really makes the brew stand out from the others. This will make for a damn fine summer beer & will definitely be in heavy rotation as the temps rise.
