COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed only once a year to keep you warm during the cold winter months, the Blanche Neige (« Snow white ») isn’t your typical wheat beer. Firstly, the level of alochol is surprising and is perceived rapidly both in the bouquet and in the mouth. The spices come through immediately, giving very little room for the usual wheat beer aromas (coriander and curaçao). Cinnamon and clove dominate and the flavours are generously well-rounded thanks no doubt to residual sugars. It is therefore a very sweet beer that is best appreciated slowly.

There were a bunch of these at my local retailer so I thought I’d give one a try. From St. Jerome Quebec, this beer is a great holiday brew. As you can see in the label there are cinnamon and cloves added for flavor. You can certainly tell that they’re in there as soon as you open the bottle. It is really good for the first half of the bottle. The flavor just sort of sits there in your mouth by the end of the bottle though but it’s probably the light hoppiness mixed with the cloves that seems to get a bit stale. Anyway, for Christmas Eve I’d say sure, I’d pick up 4 of these for the family but I’d stock something else for the rest of the night.

I think one’s opinion of this beer will depend on how much one likes the taste of cloves. This beer smells fantastic but I can’t say its taste lived up to the aroma for me. The cloves are really dominant with the cinnamon present mostly in the aftertaste. There is a full malt to counterbalance the spices but they are still pretty dominant. Not really my taste in beer but I do appreciate that it is well done.

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
ours a hazy golden-orange with an average size diminishing white head. Fruity aroma along with spices and mild hops. Flavour’s sweet and yeasty with a good amount of spices, a bit of maple syrup and a light bitter finish. Medium bodied

Draft - Clove and cinnamon dominate. Clear gold with a thin head. Clove and spices with a bitter bite. A bit over the top on spices but if you like clove and cinnamon you are going to enjoy this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GoLdFiNgEr (111) - La Pocatière, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2013
Bière blanche voilée à 8,3% alc., format 341 ml. Goût puissant de clou de girofle qui surprend et léger goût de cannelle. Forte effervescence et mousse légère qui s'estompe rapidement. Faible amertume et légèrement sucrée. Une fois de plus, une biere impressionnante au niveau des saveurs de DDC, qui selon moi est faite pour partager a deux étant donné les saveurs intenses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dégustée sur place à St-Jérôme,Le liquide est blond avec un mince col.Au nez ,barbecue léger ,clou de girofle et cannelle.A goût,les clous de girofles sont dominent avec la cannelle qui suit a l’arrière palais et la final qui est plus douces grâce aux sucres.Pas trop mon genre,mais somme toute ok.

lesifflebiere (1186) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2013
Une blanche puissante et bien épicée, la Blanche Neige offre des flaveurs de clou de girofle et de cannelle du début à la fin. L’alcool, inhabituel dans une blanche, est bien contrôlé, se mêlant aux différentes saveurs. La bière elle-même est trouble, de couleur paille tirant sur le doré, et assez épaisse. Un délice hivernal qui ne détonne pas, mais qui est suffisamment originale et savoureuse pour pleinement mériter sa place dans l’excellente gamme DDC.

BiereLuc (855) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2013
Orangée, pâle avec quelques particules en suspension et un faible filet de mousse. Nez épicé (cannelle et girole, tel qu’indiqué) avec une touche de bananes et de levures. En bouche, les épices signent la décharge sans compromis. L’alcool se dévoile tardivement et s’éteint avec le reste des épices. Une belle bière festive d’hiver ni trop subtile ni trop extrême...

bunget (498) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013
341ml bottle. Clear glowing golden body, small white head with good retention, some floating sediment. A very interesting aroma: yeast, caramel, floral hops, honey, coriander, some exotic fruits (maybe mango). Taste of caramel upfront, followed by a huge wave of bitter herbal hops, yeast, spices, earthy, wormwood. Oily and well carbonated, a bit sticky at the end.

czar (4100) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
pours almost clear, few particles, small off-white cap, little retention and lacing. very spicy - more in an herbal way, grassy and soapy, fruity esters - bananas. pale malts - residual sugars, hint of wheat acidity. average carbonation, light to medium body - oily, quite nice grassy-citrusy-spicy finish, relatively dry - good mouthfeel. liked it!
