3.46/5 rDev +0.9%
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Best by date of June 2014 notched into the label.
Appearance: Cloudy golden body with a slight orange hue. Respectable foam head collapses to a creamy cap and does not leave much lacing.
Smell: Coriander dominates the nose. Orange juice and a bit of clove hang around as well.
Taste: The spices hit first. Coriander and orange zest are carried on a pretty bubbly body. The malts have a hard time breaking through the carbonation. This ones is sweet and tangy but lacks a strong grainy backbone.
Mouthfeel: As I mentioned this brew is very carbonated. Medium body. Easy to drink.
Overall: My main problem with Cold Snap was the lack of malts. The orange and spice were good but they need malts in order to round this one out. This was refreshing but is not a beer I will run out to buy more of any time soon.

This beer poured a hazy orange color with a small white head. There was a bit of lace.
A peppery, spicy nose. Maybe a little citrus?
Taste of pepper and coriander. And yes, some orange.
This beer didn't really do anything for me. Thin, not much to it.
At $2.99 for a bomber, I thought it was a good price. It just isn't a very good beer.

The notches on the label tell me this 12 ounce bottle will be filled with "brewery fresh beer" until April of this year.
Pours heavily clouded, dull darker apricot. Sturdy and lasting off white head. Lace left behind is thicker and mostly slippery.
Floral nose with some light pepper, oranges and cream-sicle notes.
Pretty flavorful white brew, with a distinct mineral note. Also more orange, more lite pepper and in general showing a zesty and crisp character and mouth feel.
Not bad, quite easy drinking and gong nicely with salad, nuts and goat cheese. Respectable seasonal from SA

3.78/5 rDev +10.2%
Appearance: high carbonation, 1/4 inch head, hazy, gold in color
Smell: tangerine and peach
Taste: tangerine, apricot, wheat, and peach
Mouthfeel: sweet with light bitterness, light body, high carbonation
Overall: Not usually a fan of Sam Adams witbiers, but I found this one to be very drinkable and better than most. Refreshing and clean, it may be my favorite in this year's spring variety pack.
