Cold Snap by Sam Adams
Available in 12pk bottles for $14.99 at Wise Guys for a limited time
 
 
 
 
 
Beer Style:  White Ale - Similar to wheat ales, and tend to habe spice or fruit flavors added.
 
Appearance:  Pours hazy golden orange with a 1⁄4 inch head
 
Aroma:  Orange peel, wheat malt, coriander
 
Mouth-feel:  Somewhat creamy, full-bodied
 
Taste:  Orange peel, faint hint of spice, lemon, coriander and plum
 
Overall:  This is the latest seasonal from Sam Adams.  
 
The bottle description lists plum and orange peel as ingredients.  I could not pinpoint what the plum flavor was until I read the bottle. (The slight plum flavor adds an interesting sweet dimension to the brew.)
 
At site Cold Snap appears to be another shandy, or wheat beer type, but the flavor says different.  I would choose Cold Snap over a shandy any day (and I am a shandy fan!)
 
Cold Snap is a great addition to your Spring Beer lineup!
 
Cheers,
Beer Guy
