3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Honey aroma with notes of molasses and grassy hops. Pours hazy straw colored with a minimal white head that has essentially no retention or lacing. Starts with sweet honey flavor with some molasses as well as some oat character. Finishes dry and quite smooth with the honey and molasses continuing with a touch of grassy hops at the end for balance. Interesting and very tasty!

From a can. Pours almost clear dark gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like musky malt, stale corn, bread, and straw. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, sweet fruit, musky malt, and bread.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can.
It pours a hazy straw gold...looks like a Wit or a Hefe. Small head of foam subsides quickly leaving a ring around the glass. Minimal lacing.
The smell is interesting. I get some sweet notes from the molasses and honey but I also get some smoke and a bit of lemon zest type of hoppiness.
Man is this tasty. There’s an earthy quality that dominates. Yeah, there’s some sweet to it with the honey, a bit of sweet and bitter with the molasses, then there’s the smoke. Adds a nice dimension here but is far from being over done. Everything seems so in balance and that makes for a smooth drinker. Oh and I do get a hint or 2 of lemon zest in the finish. Deeper into the session and there is a definite nutty flavour going on.
Fairly light with the body and carbonation. Smoooooth.
This is really impressive. Kottbusser, eh? Welcome back!!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
August 20th, 2013 - I enjoyed the Grimm Brothers Snow Drop out of a plastic Coors Light cup, decorated with the Denver Broncos Logo, but not with the structure and shape that a good beer tasting and reviewing deserve. With that caveat included, this is a light yellow beer, faintly hazy, with a wall of bubbles slowly clambering up the inside of the glass like Wildlings scaling "The Wall." From the nose I get a touch of lemon sweetness, like a lemon drop, but not much else. I blame this on the vessel. Light and effervescent, the Snow Drop glides effortlessly across the tongue until the mid-taste where it flexes its flavor more powerfully, showing off wheat and a dry lemon, almost like a Meyer lemon, with a hoppy after taste and finish. Dry, crisp, and a little citrus - the Earl Grey of beers.

On tap at Colorado Plus poured a cloudy yellow with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of wheat, bread and a hint of honey. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, light fruitiness and light honey with a smooth finish.

Nitro version of snow drop is smoother and creamer than co2 version. A must try if available.

Comes across more Belgian than German. Maybe true to a kottbusser style but I’m not sure. Good after a hot day of yard work.
