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.

Love, love, LOVE this beer. I had Blanche Neige on tap at Dieu du Ciel as well as in bottles. It has almost a hazy golden colour, and the odour is a slight bit citrusy and spicy. What an amazing taste. Cloves and cinnamon are the dominant flavours in this wheat beer, giving it a lot of spiciness. It is a strong beer (8.3%), yet does not show it, because it still has a bit of sweetness to it. Exceptional beer. One of my favourites for sure.

Bouteille 341ml. Couleur or limpide, mousse blanche disparaissant rapidement en laissant un anneau et un voile léger. Arôme de clou de girofle intense, canelle. Goût de clou de girofle tout aussi intense, un peu sucré, amertume en fin de bouche. Carbonation moyenne, corps moyen.

Très épicé au nez comme prévu, le clou de girofle domine outrageusement. En bouche, les autres épices ne parviennent pas à se faire une place, malgré tout agréable même si c’est pas mon genre de bière.

[5013-20121215] 500mL bottle. Light citrus tangerine perfume aroma. Hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter citrus pine resin hops flavour has quite a pungent citrus pup note. Medium-full body. Interesting but the resin is overpowering. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

Another DDC courtesy of Tommy! This one is intense. No pussyfooting this one. Really spiced with tons of clove and a fair amount of sweetness leftover. I get tons of pink bubblegum flavor in this. Tastes like that cheap wax paper covered penny gum. Interesting I suppose but not my fave from DDC.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 Poured a lovely deep orange amber but with only a very thin white head that went quick. Aroma is big wallop of spice with a touch of yeast funk. Tast is overpowering cloves and cinnamon with an incredibly long finish of bitter citrus peel. Medium to full bodied on palate, creamy mouthfeel with dense soft carbonation. Overall... interesting, unique, worth experiencing. But after a while the strength of cloves gets old. Typos corrected, not re-rated.

2012-12-15. Hazy dark yellow, small white head. 3+ Strong spicey aroma, coriander, spice, floral notes. 6+ Flavour has similar strong spice character, coriander, relatively bitter, sweetish pale malt base. Smooth average plus to medium bodied soft carbonation. 3+ Spice character is a bit too strong for me. Bottle aged six months from Au Coin Duluth, Montreal

12oz bottle I received via trade with pushkinwow. Thanks! Pours a hazy, pulpy orange with some soft, lacing white head. Aroma is excellent, lemon grass, cinnamon, all spice, peach, wheat, yeast, ripe fruit. Favor is sweet, fruity, peach, grass, pineapple candies, white pepper, orange zest. Full, sweet finish. Sort of reminds me of a cross between a hef and a tripel. Nice.
