RB

22 picked up at Brewer's Haven Boise a week or so ago... Poured tonight into my small goblet.. 1/2" white head leaves nice lacing atop a clear orange brew.

Nose is all about the coriander... Belgian esters/phenols come through but are pretty light with only hints of pepper/lesser clove and background apple fruitiness.

Flavor is marginally better, but seems pretty muddy... The coriander adds a big hammer to the yeasty elements... okay..

Body is good... carbonation is spot on.. pretty darn drinkable honestly, but nothing I will seek out again.

Weird... I question whether the coriander even needs to be there given the lower ABV and the "Belgian Lite" character... Pretty tasty, but seems all thrown together.

Handsome dark coppery amber color with a creamy head in the Belgian snifter. Inviting aroma of roast grain and the cider press. Tangy and well carbonated in the mouth.

Fairly sweet but with a deep spicy flavor. Some yeasty bitterness. Full of the Belgian character. Roasted malt with an aromatic hoppiness. A little sugary but that biter edge is just right for balance.

This is a delightfully sippable brew that seems more like a Belgian IPA but that sweet, funky Grand Cru taste is just a little more subtle than some scarier brews I've had. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Tasted 21 May 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a clear medium amber. One and a half fingers of off-white head, dense. Great retention and lacing.

Smell is warm and sweet with a dose of spice. Caramel malts, candi sugar, wax, and the Belgian yeast and coriander that remind me so strongly of a wit.

Taste is mildly sweet, and much simpler than the smell. Has that same waxy character I picked up in the smell. Fades to a mild herbal bitterness. Tastes fine, just not a whole lot going on.

Feel is good. Medium-bodied, sugary stickiness, and carbonation that froths and flows, rising up potently but without becoming overpowering.

An interesting beer. A lot like a sweet, waxy wit. Sometimes it works, sometimes it just barely squeaks by.

look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Brown /orange bubbly body, very attractive fluffy head which slowly settled. Powerful lacing throughout. By the end, my glass looked like a stripmine.
S - Quite aromatic: spicy incense, strawberry gummis, pineapple, banana, cream. A bit of harsh rasp in there too, suggesting wheat, though I know there isn't any. Something like varnish, sort of a one-off sweetness.
T - Not overly complex but flavors are certainly pronounced. Canned fruit medley, star anise, marjoram, misc. spice, A bit of cloying green flavor at the end of the nose which might come from the coriander, which again suggests a wheat presence, but again my senses are fooled. Light copper, enough to keep it interesting. Again, pretty strong, palates beware!
M - Fizzy on the tongue. Bitterness is subdued at first but makes itself known after a bit, biting at the back of the tongue and mouth. Mostly refreshing but also full-feeling.
O - Might be best consumed in Springtime, as its name suggests. Warm days with cool breeze carrying the smell of flowers. Unfortunately, I can't get too excited about this one: the Belgian style isn't quite up my alley. Regardless, this is a solid beer that anyone should be happy to try.

Review from 3/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy copper amber, one finger off-white head and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, light fruit, coriander. In the flavor, coriander is up front and assertive. Medium body. Belgian fruits and light malt, coriander at first and middle. Medium fruit and malt finish with some astringency. A nice american made Belgian that could use some more balance.

22oz bottle poured into a Pint glass.

A - Pours a clear, medium oragne with a yellow-tan one finger head. Good retention and some lacing.

S - Belgian yeast and carmel malt dominate, with some old oranges in the mix.

T - Belgian, so black pepper and lemons.

D - Great carbonation and an average body for the style.

O - Belgian style for sure. Light for the season with a Belgian influence.

22 oz. bottle from West Richland Beer and Wine, shared with beer compadre 7.19.11, poured into wine tumblers.

One finger broken, uneven white head, fairly quick dissipation, minimal lacing over golden amber clear body small streams of rising carbonation. De Coriander Bomb, huge peppery esters, very little orange peel, etc for balance, some caramel and pilsener malts add a bit of complexity. Taste is even more coriander-centric than the nose, a bit of sweetish malt but not the most balanced example of the style and I had a hard time perceiving any hops, perhaps a bit of floral notes, due to overwhelming coriander character. Mouthfeel is a bit on the light side of medium, very dry finish. An interesting and fairly unique take on the style.

This is a coriander bomb, plain and simple. It's slightly over hopped like most american's poor interpretations of a belgian. i dont mind this beer and at the price point of under 4 bucks for 22 oz, its somewhat solid. i'd describe the malt profile if i could taste it but the coriander and slight over hops get in the way of any nuances you'd hope to get from the grain bill. there are no off putting phenols or esters, but i guess at 7% that should be expected. if you care about price and want a weekday relaxer, its worth having. If you want a world class offering, you might want to wash ur dog with this.

Appearance is a darkened amber with fair head and scattered lace. Smell of light spice and coriander with the malt. Taste has the same spice and coriander with citrus and a good malt backbone balanced nicely with the hops and alchohol being present in the back. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Nothing complex, but a very good ale nonetheless

Pours a nice golden amber body with an off white head. The nose is mostly belgian yeast with some spices and citrus fruits thrown in. Pretty good.

The flavor isn't bad at all. Very spicy in the finish and aftertaste which gives off a somewhat unpleasant bitterness, though it dissolves into a sweet candy-like flavor. Up front and through the middle is all belgian yeastiness and a hint of fruit (some orange, raspberry, etc.). A decent beer.

The mouthfeel is decently think, but its undercarbonated, and the drinkability is limited to "I definitely only want this one bottle."

Many thanks to Terry (beertunes) for the opportunity to try this interesting beer.

The beer pours a golden amber color with exceptional, pillowy head retention and good lacing. Have to say right off that this is a very active looking beer. The nose imparts considerable candied malt, but with underlying spice and hoppy bitterness as well. Flavors replicate the nose pretty closely, though I was a bit surprised by how sweet this beer is. There is some serious hoppy bitterness in the finish, but not really enough to counter the significant sweetness in this beer. It still tastes pretty good, but I wouldn't have minded if they dialed down the sweetness a bit (perhaps a bit of short term cellaring would calm this beer down a bit). Mouthfeel is medium bodied, but is just a bit thin on the finish. Drinkability isn't bad - the alcohol is well integrated in this beer - but the sweetness detracts just a bit from this beer's drinkability.

An interesting beer, reminding me of a somewhat sweeter version of some Belgian IPA's I've had. Thanks Terry!

A: Poured an off orange color with a small white head head and good carbonatioon.

S: Nose is Belgian yeast, spice, coriander.

T: Taste is belgian yeast, citrus, coriander, spice.

M: Medium bodied, to effervescent

D: Drinkability was ok, there was a bit much NO2 leaving me gassy and with lots of bubbles and off mouthfeel. Good to drink but not of the best of the Snoqualimie offerings.

Poured into tulip. Poured more orange than pale, the beer was still a pleasing color. It had a thick, rocky off-white head that had great retention and lacing.

The aroma was very subdued, fruit and yeast, with a bit of spice at the back. The flavors followed just more present and focused. The full, creamy body was very pleasant across the tongue. Drinkability was very good, a full 22 slid down easily. This beer is one we look forward to every year, another seasonal visitor we look forward to every year.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: rich amber hue; rather dark for a "pale" ale, but still nice. It's also rather hazy with a fair amount of apparent effervescence and two fingers of compact ivory foam. It looks like it could be appetizing.

Smell: nice malt aroma with notes of toasted/biscuity malt. Hints of something akin to blackberry, but none of the tree-fruit aromas I usually expect here. Not bad, but in my mind could be better.

Taste: similar rich malt flavor but more of the blackberry stands out. There are rich floral flavors here which are due either to the yeast or the hops; I can't really tell. Toastiness is toned down in comparison to the aroma. It's pretty good but not a flavor profile I'd typically associate with a Belgian style brew.

Mouthfeel: medium body with plenty of carbonation which gives a nice creamy mouthfeel. Actually very nice indeed.

Drinkability: while I like the flavor a bit, and I love the mouthfeel, I don't think I'd typically want to drink a whole lot of this. I'll finish my bomber and then probably skip it the next time I see it at the store.

My thoughts on this are slightly skewed because this beer tasted almost exactly like another belgian I've had before (I can't remember the name) though the Snoqualmie is not as well balanced. Good for the value but an almost salty finish became more pronounced as I finished it. A fine bouquet and light enough that even my wife liked it! The coriander definitely gives this a nice herbal taste.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip at 50F.

A - Pours a reddish, yet medium amber. 2+ finger head and wonderful retention. Lots and lots of lacing here as well.

S - A fair amount of floral hops, some spice, and a bit of sweet malt. Definitely some fruitiness as well.

T - Spicy coriander and sweetly fruity, yeasty, and with a nice balanced of earthy hops. Was very pleasantly surprised on this, as it holds up quite well to many of the bigger names in this category. For the price-point ($4) it is exceptional, and probably the best beer Snoqualmie is making right now.

M - Creamy smooth yet high on carbonation. Medium bodied.

D - Exceptional. A great overall beer and I am blown away for the price. Will be picking up as many of these as I can find while they are in season.

REVIEW #200 WOOHOO!

Bottle purchased from liquidsolutions

Appearance: Red to dirty copper body with a nice 2 finger slightly off white crown. A fair amount of retention and nice lacing.

Smell: Not very pungent, but a nice blend of floral hops, citrus hops, slightly sweet malt, some fruit like pineapple and nectarines. In all fairness I've had this bottle sitting around for 6+ months so that might have detracted from the nose.

Taste: Nice belgian style yeast meets American style hops. Taste profile resembles nose. I like the slightly bitter but slightly sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to med-lite bodied with ample carbonation.

Drinkability: Quaffable.

I'm a huge fan of this brewery's Wild Cat IPA and am fairly satisfied with this offering. Got their Steam Train Porter coming up next.

Served in a shaker pint at the Dog & Pony, Spring fever grand cru is a hazy pale orange with a thin off-white head that leaves light, scattered lace.

Smell is sugary malt and lemony coriander, a light sourness, perhaps wheat.

Taste is super spicy, whoa. Not a fan of such overtly spicy beers, this one has huge coriander, there's some apricot notes as well that remind me a bit of English ale yeast actually. It's sweet for sure, some honey notes, and while I got used to the spice, I never loved it.

Mouthfeel is has a very creamy carbonation, but with a sharp edge from spices, accentuated by dryness of the alcohol. Medium heavy body, not as fully attenuated as the style often is.

Drinkability is avg...well, probably less so for me, man was it spicy. But there were some enjoyable moments, and at least the ABV was in check. More carbonation might have helped with the under-attenuation...

Grand Crus can often be challenging to appreciate, especially since the style is so open to interpretation. Snoqualmie faces this challenge with a spring seasonal whose bright array of Belgian spice flavor is enhanced by coriander. The beer is orange-amber with diminished carbonation and no lace. The aroma is timid but amiable in the tradition of Belgian exotica.

Spring Fever makes ample use of Czech Saaz for spice. But its lack of peppery bite equates with an ease of appreciation.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Glowing bonfire orange with a light sprinkling of fine yeast. Despite less than abundant visible carbonation, the pale tangerine colored crown is at least three fingers after the pour. It isn't Belgianesque, but it looks pretty good... and isn't shy about leaving lace.

The nose is bursting with tropical fruit such as juicy pineapple, orange and mango. Simcoe and Amarillo hops seem like obvious guesses. However, Columbus and Saaz are the only hops in use. Hmmm, must be a rogue strain of Belgian yeast. Although the beer doesn't smell especially BSPA-like, it does smell wonderful.

It tastes wonderful too. It looks like Snoqualmie Falls has managed to succeed where quite a few American brewers have failed. That is, in brewing a big Belgian ale that can at least stand in the same room with that country's best without having to hang its head. Never mind their origins, the tropical flavors are reminiscent of American hops. In addition, the total amount of hoppiness is more than BSPAs usually deliver. Both are welcome.

The malt is mostly pale with a negligible amount of Munich toasted breadiness. Top notes of hops, coriander and yeast reign supreme. This is not a beer that makes me say 'wow' each time the glass is upended, but I am nodding my noggin in appreciation with every supremely satisfying sip. This is an American-brewed, Belgian-style ale done right.

Warming brings out even more orange, apricot and grapefruit zestiness. Coriander was an outstanding choice, as was whatever Belgian yeast strain was used. My buds are forcing me to increase the flavor score... and it didn't take much arm twisting. The bottom line is that interesting, delicious and drinkable is always a killer combination.

The mouthfeel is more American than Belgian, but that isn't necessarily a negative. It's medium-full for the ABV and is crushed velvet smooth. In fact, the next highest score is *almost* within reach.

Even though Wildcat IPA still has the top spot, Spring Fever Belgian Style Grand Cru Ale edges out PGA (Perfectly Great Amber) as Snoqualmie's second best beer. It may not be perfect, but it definitely qualifies as great. This is a repeat purchase for sure.

Lugged this buddy back from a recent trip to Seattle. Thanks to the guys at Bottleworks for some good advice and great beers!

Pours from its 22 oz bottle into my Urthel tasting glass. Obvious from the pour that this is a nice, full warming and fresh brew. Strong rich orange color that glows in front of the light. A truly frothy head springs up like on a bucket of soapy water. A solid white cap sits on top of the beer the entire way through the drink leaving spiderweb-like streaks of sticky lace down the edges of the glass.

The aroma is dominated by a sweet, yeasty spice with a rich backbone of alcohol and followed through by a wave of coriander. I'm usually someone who avoids added spices like the plague, but with a Belgian-inspired, double-hoppy American pale ale it somehow works wonderfully...if that's what you're expecting. Hard to say this style has a lot of tradition to compare it too, but I like what I'm trying.

I recommend waiting for this beer to warm up some as the potentially competing flavors mellow and blend with time. A very recognizable Belgian-American sweetness up front, like that from a Tripel yeast - spicy, bready, fresh. Beer moves over the mouth extremely smooth and rich leaving a lingering trail of sweet malt and alcohol, herbaceous coriander and finishing out with a slightly astringent pine hoppiness. Warm and lip smacking toward the very end. A bit aggressive at the finish but nothing too serious to make it hard to drink.

Overall this beer has an excellent aroma, really inviting and refreshing flavor and a uniquely smooth Belgian quality. But no doubt that this is an American interpretation so with that in mind I'm completely satisfied with how it's presented. Now, back to Washington.

Hit the spot Grand Cru although one-dimensional corriander, it is drinkable sweet-spicey, with above average carbonation albeit from the Saaz hops. Still very drinkable supporting yeast,decent looks and yeasty smell. It works.
Thanks SuzyGreenberg (Ed Bottomley).
