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.
