Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Stirring from the haze of winter, this refreshing unfiltered White Ale awakens its smooth wheat with the bright snap of spring spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.

Excellent take on a white ale. I still miss Sam Adams White Ale, but this is a great replacement.

Poured into my trusty Stella Artois pint glass. Clean crisp and very clear with minimal head. Went down really smooth. The taste is above average and one of the best white beers i have had in a long time. It really hit the spot on a very cold Indiana day when we were colder than the other 49 states

Just had my first one. Love Sam Adams Lager and wasn't sure about this one. I really liked the taste and there was no after taste. I'll definitely be drinking this again.

This is personally my favorite beer I've had so far. It's a delicious wheat beer so it's very easy to drink. Semi-sweet with a hint of a citrus to it. Other than one other brand of beer, I pretty much stock-up on Cold Snap every Spring. It just goes well with just about every meal (even breakfast). For me, Cold Snap and Spring just go hand-in-hand. I wish they made this beer year-round.
