4.1/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Nice golden color, clear, finger tip depth head and some lacing.

S: Very light smelling to me, but can smell some herbal scents.

T: Very good tasting beer. Tastes like a typical pale ale, perhaps more like an APA than a Belgian. Has a very refreshing, crisp flavor with bread and herbal hints. Not overly spicy as some end up being but enough there to enhance the flavor of the beer. Just enough bitterness to leave a lightly bitter, herbal bread aftertaste.

M: Smooth, slightly creamy mouth feel but light to medium bodied.

Overall: Very solid showing from Schell's. Something with a nice little spice but still refreshing. I could see having a sixer of this in my winter rotation.

3.44/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a HUGE, dense, white head that laces quite nicely. A yeasty, slightly citric aroma. Bright golden color. Initially, a strange mix of spice and bitterness. Mellows and becomes a grassy/grainy hop. Moves into a nice biscuit flavor, then the spice comes back with a little citrus for the finish.

This is interesting. It's not bad at all, but it's not great. It's definitely got a lot going on, if you like some complexity; hoppy, spicy, malty, yeasty. Maybe not my favorite mix of these, but it grows on me as I drink it.

3.79/5  rDev +0.5%

pours out a clear and brilliant gold colour with a pure white finger high head. ample carbonation props up said head quite vigorously. belgian lace leaves a trace. bright and sunny aroma...spicy sweet with all the requisite belgian flair with hints of chamomile. the taste profile is a well balanced combination of pale malts, peppery alcohol spice, coriander and mint. a bit of spicy hop lays down some bitterness in the mostly dry finish. it rides the fence between belgian pale ale and strong golden ale, but the distinction matters not as this is a tweener ale all the way. body wise, it's about medium for the style with a relatively smooth mouthfeel in spite of some prickly carbonation. this has perfect drinkability for a winter seasonal, sort of quenching, sort of warming, mostly delicious.

overall another winning rendition in the Snowstorm series from Schell's. an approachable belgian for the masses. brilliant.
