New Belgium SNAPSHOT
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle that I bought at Giant Eagle in Painesville as a part of a 6 pack. I do not recall the price. “ENJOY BY: 29JUN” and several other characters that I could not discern stamped on the bottom right of the label.
A Hazy yellow body with streaks of “grains” and bubbles rising up from the bottom under a meringue like white head. Fairly good look. 3.5
S Nice, pleasing smell of wheat. I like the smell. Delicious and inviting. 4.0
T Your basic Wheat Ale in front with a slight tart finish. The taste is good in that it invites more sips. 4.0
M There is the nice solid presence of the Wheat Ale but a good effervescence with the light carbonation which is a welcome feature. 4.0
D/O Drinkability is probably about the highest I can rate it. Overall this is a solid Wheat Ale. I would recommend bringing this to a patio grill gathering and sharing it with friends. 3.5
Notes: Pretty cool image on the label of a retro camera, an instamatic.

Popped the top to an aroma of someone farting in a wet bathing suit in a hot car. Tart is accurate, which paired well with my dry numb pallet after a pack of newports. Pretty run of the mill wheat beer. Glad I only bought a single. Whoever said it tastes like blue moon was spot on.

12 oz bottle, enjoy by 6/22/14. Pours hazy yellow-white with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass a little.
The aroma is wheat malts with some lactic acid tartness.
The flavor is sweet bready wheat malts with a little lemoney fruit and slight tart lactic acid. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some spritzy carbonation.
Overall, reminds me of a gose, but a bit sweeter and more wheaty.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. Bottle says enjoy by May 25th, 2014.
Appearance: Pours a very hazy yellowish golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A fairly tart and zesty wheat malt forward aroma with good hints of citrus and spice. Upfront wheat and pale malt with hints of straw, biscuit, grains, and cracker. Spice hints of coriander and pepper. Citrus fruit hints of lemon zest and orange. Somewhat floral and acidic. A pretty solid wheat ale aroma.
Taste: Like the nose, a zesty, tart, and somewhat acidic wheat malt driven taste with good notes of citrus and spice. Wheat and pale malt with some notes of biscuit, straw, crackers, and grains. Notes of coriander and some pepper spicing. Zesty citrus fruit notes of lemon and orange. Slight notes of floral hops in the background. A pretty solid crisp wheat taste.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Crisp, creamy, spritzy, and slightly acidic. Very smooth.
Overall: A solid light and refreshing wheat ale. Nice tart citrus presence.
