Lucky Bucket Snow Suit
On Tap at the brewery, 12/27/2012

Snow Suit? Hmmm, what to expect? Nothing to describe it on the black board. I'm guessing a spicy winter warmer or perhaps even a stout. Served in a pint glass. Clear dark copper with a reddish cast beneath a frothy head of off-white. Aroma of apple and light spice. Taste of apple and light spice. A pleasant surprise! This is a unique winter offering. As you get into it the spice grows (kind of a generic mix) and some dark fruit emerges. Medium-light in body and gently crisp. Good head retention and lacing. Wonderful. Pleasant finish with a gently spicy drying finish.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Dark cherry red with a quickly dissipating head--the head completely disappears; it looks like red wine or cherry juice; the lacing is non existent; it's pretty but it doesn't look like beer (unless it was a sour, which it is not)

S: Pretty subdued--sweet fruits like cherries, oranges, and apples blend with spices like nutmeg, cloves, allspice; some brown sugar and toffee notes--nice but pretty subdued

T: Slightly sweet, slightly roasted malts up front with fruity undertones; the spicing is subtle and it works well but everything is so subdued

F: Medium body, sticky, but a bit under-carbonated

O: This is okay but just too subdued and lacking full carbonation; I think this beer has some potential but it's pretty average right now

A - Pours a brownish red with a thin white head.

S - Some sweetness with lots of nutmeg and cinnamon.

T - Taste is dominated by cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. The yeast is not very noticeable.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp with a sticky mouthfeel.

O - Drinkable. I just wish there would have been a little more body and depth of flavor.

4.14/5  rDev +18.6%

Appearance (4) : Orange, dark amber appearance with a three fingered foamy head that settles to a two fingered head.

Smell (4.5) : fruity esters, rich wit or Belgian style ale. Fruity spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, orange.

Taste (4.25) : very good. Spicy, fruity. Honey notes, cinnamon, a very faint hint of peppermint. This is a very tasty, enjoyable beer.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : medium bodied, rich, maybe a little watery but that's due to a lack of carbonation. Good overall.

Overall (4.22) : this one's a winner. It's basically an Abbey/Dubbel style beer. Ill go back and get more. Very tasty, smooth, delicious.

Purchased in Nashville @ Frugal McD's. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into Yazoo pint glass. Whoever created this entry labled the beer as a Winter Warmer but it clearly says Belgian Style Abbey Ale on the bottle; maybe a mix of both.

A: Pours clear, amber in color with a thick off white frothy head. Nice retention, the head slowly dissipates and clings to the glass. Looks inviting.

S: The nose is floral with a hint of Belgian maltiness. Some dried fruit, fig, cherry syrup. Definitely some scents of spice in there, maybe cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg as well.

T: Taste keeps it coming w/ the spices, upon which it heavily relies. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice. Beneath that some hints of a Trappist like yeast flavor with a slight amount of bitterness. Finish is slightly acidic and grainy.

M: The feel is light with minimal carbonation. Slides over the tongue and goes down easily.

O: Overall a good, light winter brew. The mix of an abbey ale w/ the characteristics of a winter warmer is interesting and works. I however tend to prefer to go full out in one direction or the other this time of year. That being said, a tasty beer that I enjoyed and would recommend.

Purchased a 6 pack at the Walmart neighborhood market for a reasonable $6.47. Poured into a pub style pint glass. Pours a very clear deep red/copper with moderate carbonation. Smells of apples and cherries. Taste is similar to the smell. After a while the standard winter spices become apparent, but not overwhelming. Finish is somewhat dry & fruity. An easy beer to drink.

I tried this one last year and was not impressed, but decided to try again this year & am glad I did. It seems as though they toned down the spice this year, although i may have just had a bad bottle last year. Its labeled as a winter abbey which is an accurate description, and leans more towards an abbey which in my opinion is a good thing. A fine winter selection from Lucky Bucket.
