Midnight Sun Snowshoe White

I got home before the other half two days ago, which is relatively rare. I was watching my Netflix when she walked in with the twelve pack from Sierra Nevada with all of their “Beer Camp” beers. We had been trying to find the pack since it came out and every place sold out of it really quickly (some places even before they got it out of the truck). When she walked in with it, I was like a kid on Christmas. Expect reviews of this soon. Anyways, this was another beer I picked up from Westchester. Let’s see how it went.


ABV: 4.8%

Style: Witbier

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “WHITE and FLUFFY with delicate notes of citrus, cumin and coriander, this delicious wheat beer offers year-round refreshment. Delightful on its own, Snowshoe White Belgian-style Wit Beer pairs well with a wide range of world-inspired cuisine. And as the fun grows by leaps and bounds, you’ll wish it were multiplying in your cooler.”

Random: I think this is my first beer from Alaska.

This brew poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, straw yellow color with light visible carbonation. The nose had wheat and then a lot of coriander and clove with lemon. The taste had a bit more spice to it, and not in a good way. The citrus was pretty much lost in the beer. There was a weird, burnt toast aspect to it along with some medicinal bitterness. I didn’t get any wheat to it either. The body was heavy for the style with moderate carbonation. It had a quick finish with a lot of clove and coriander. I really wanted to like this beer, but it was pretty bad. I wouldn’t have it again.
