New Belgium Snow Day Winter Ale is dark, handsome, sweet, and thin.
During the pour, it was the color of root beer; however, once it settled in the glass, it was black with a tall off-white head. The strong head of light-colored foam and the contrast in color it createdmade this a very handsome beer. The flavor was sweet, with caramel, brown sugar, and the slightest finish of juicy citric hops. There wasn't much feel; it was thin, slippery, and more refreshing than expected from a Winter Warmer.
Snow Day isn't a classic Winter Warmer. It's not heavy or rich enough, but it sure is enjoyable: tasty and juicy. More suited to after a cold-weather activity, or during a spicy meal, than as an after dinner or late evening sipper.
