Snicklefritz is a citrusy, spiced, oaked Golden Strong Ale originally developed and homebrewed by Kyle Manns. It is spiced with cardomom, ginger, juniper berries and coriander, along with fresh lemon, orange, grapefruit and tangerine zests. After fermentation, the already complex concoction was aged on oak cubes to add one more layer of flavor. Weíve production brewed it at The Bruery.
Original batch was 9.2% ABV. The newest release (bottled as a Provisions Series beer) is 10% ABV.

On tap @ the brewery. Clear bright yellow pour with a good amount of white head. Lots of citrus and spice in the aroma, estery Belgian yeast. Bubblegum flavor with more citrus, caramel, and cinnamon. Pretty unique brew.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber gold with a white foamy head.

Aroma: Spicy bay leaf. Cardamom nutmeg cinnamon. Bready malt.

Taste: Holiday spices: cinnamon, nut meg, all spice. A little sweetness. Some pepper. The alcohol is well hidden behind the bombardment of spicy flavors.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and fizzy.

Overall: A tasty spiced beer. I think The Bruery could have fun making slight variations for this beer for, oh lets say for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Draft at Chruchills. Pours a hazy yellow with some head. Flavor is very sweet and slightly fruity. A bit underwhelming, but a decent offering.

On tap at the Bruery. Pours a clear golden blond with a frothy head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is over nutmeg and some other spices I canít quite pick up but overall a very distinct Belgian aroma for lack of a better description. Taste is lackluster with the typical Bruery yeast coming into play but leaving something to be desired after the nice aroma. Some pepper and slight spice notes coming in but nothing that makes this one stand out. Overall, a Bruery Belgian that will likely be brewed again in some variance that Iíll be hard pressed to tell apart.

Tastes what potpourri looks like. Pretty pungent floral notes practically capsize this brew, but the strange, lopsided spiciness is actually more interesting than offensive. Would be good on a summer night, if nothing else, because of its innocuous density and easygoing mouthfeel. Snicklefritz isnít the most balanced beer, but itís worth a shot if youíre getting a flight somewhere.

Orange County tasting room, pour 4/5. Orange-golden pour with basically no head. Sour and citrus appear in the nose, and dominate the flavor. Orange juice and lemon notes are huge. Flavor is pretty complex: hard to know what everything is. Palate is dry, alcohol is mostly hidden. Maybe too much citrus, maybe too many elements here, but very interesting. Very bitter finish, with some sour.

A: The beer pours a surprisingly clear golden color with a finger of white head. I say surprisingly clear because most Bruery beers arenít. S: The aroma is very heavily spiced with with a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon notes. There is a bit of yeast along with some mild fruit esters and pepper. Fairly sweet with bread and caramel malt aromas. T: Sweeter than the nose lets on with nice toffee and caramel flavors. Still very spicy with a lot of nutmeg, mild cinnamon, and some white pepper. There is a mild fruit character of candied pears and apples. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. O: One of the better "Belgian" beers the Bruery has made in recent memory.

Draft. Hazy amber pour, white head. Sweetness, honey, fruit (banana & apricot), spice, clove, and coriander. Too sweet for me, didnít like it to much.
