COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp & lively, the hazy smoothness of this unfiltered White Ale is roused by the crackling of spring spices. From a hint of sweetness from orange peel & plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the subtle blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way. Cheers!

Sam Adams Cold Snap Very hazy orange pour in an awesome glass. Check out that glass. Weak scent overpowered be the scent of chicken wings. What an odd beer. Very not beer like. Lots os odd spices. Reminds me of a hard cider. Or maybe a mulled wine. Very unique. Very drinkable. Love the aftertaste. Wasn’t expecting much but really like this.

Crisp lemony carbonated flavor. Easy to drink. Not my favorite brew of Sam Adams. Might try again with some wings.

joejames (348) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2015
On tap, Guadalajara, York, PA, served in a shaker glass. Pour hazy golden-yellow, quick one finger creamy head, nice retention and foam lace covered the sides of the glass. Aroma of grass, bread. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting note of white peppercorn, coriander, wheat and lemon. Not bad.

bnokk (196) - Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2015
APPEARANCE - light, but oddly bright yellow color. Good white head that holds onto the sides of the glass all the way to the end. NOSE - smells strongly of pretty standard pils or lager. Not much more to speak of FLAVOR - light body and flavor as expected with a white ale.

OnTheTrail (76) - Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2015
aroma- coriande, maybe clove, more than citrus. taste - a soft fruity that makes me thing banana, less spice. altogether not unpleasant, but nothing special, much like Blue Moon.

MunBro (794) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015
Nice one from Sam Adams. Hazy yellow/orange pour. Has a zesty aroma of oranges and lemon. Some foam and minor spotty lacing. A nice American brewing of a Belgian Witbier. Zest, wheat, straw, orange, lemon, and an earthy funkiness.

From Notes: Not a big fan... this is really fruity. Not even in a good way. I can drink it, but I don’t want to...

UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Cloudy yellow body huge bubbly head.. Unfortunately heavy bodied. Subtle peach on the nose, wheat malt, coriander and orange zest. Not sessionable. Would’ve been great in a 250ml portion. Draft at McThirstys Pint.

Yeast, bread, and coriander nose, in that order. Cloudy amber, medium head, little retention. Yeast and beans, lemon and coriander at midpalate. Faint banana finish. Light body, fizzy. I had hoped for so much more, but it’s still somewhat enjoyable.

Bottle left over from a mix pack, quite a tasty little bugger. I’d take this any day over a macro.
