COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed only once a year to keep you warm during the cold winter months, the Blanche Neige ( Snow white ) isnt 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 curaao). 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.

Bottle given to me by my step brother. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a small fluffy white head, clingy columns of lace. Nose is banana and clove. Tastes sweet, banana, a tiny bit bitter, and a little bit of spice with some abv burn. Good stuff.

neongolden (1385) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
(341mL bottle from Peluso, 9mo) Pours a lightly hazed medium orange with a small white bubbly head, slight lace. Aroma strongly clove and cinnamon, bubblegum sweetness, some light fruity esters (banana, peach). On the palate, slightly sweet wheat malt core, stone fruit, clove and cinnamon (the latter in the finish more) or maybe five spice powder, candied orange rind. Faintly sour yeasty edge in the middle but ultimately sweet/bitter overall, with more citrus rind bitterness on the finish. Medium body, low-moderate carb, slight alcohol heat. Spice heavy wit but theres a lot of fruitiness too. I think of this in the pantheon of spiced winter ales and its a pretty good one because of the other fruity, yeasty elements. Sweet, yes, but not nearly as sweet as some malt bomb winter ales, and more drinkable in small servings.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 Tiszta, mz szne s puha habja vizulis lmnyknt is meglljk a helyket, csodaszmba menő illatval azonban nem vehetik fel a versenyt. Bzasrktől nmileg szokatlan mdon egy dligymlcss IPA s kemnyvonalas, lesztőben frdőző belga tripel egyvelegnek szivrvnysznű illatai jrjk tncukat a levegőben olyan vibrlan, hogy orrunk alig győzi kvetni őket. Ha bizonyos nagynevű srfőzdk klnleges hozzvalk jelenltt kvnjk hirdetni cmkjkn, hitelessgket javtand btran ajnlanm nekik jelen tpust aroma gyben szemgyre venni; amikor specilis sszetevőkről esik sz egy sr esetben, annak szmomra legalbbis csak akkor van igazi szenzcirtke, a klnleges alapanyagok felfedezse akkor esik a legjobban, ha hiperrzkeny zlelőbimbk nlkl, akr előismeretek hinyban is a sznkban vljk rezni zket. Ebben az esetben ez az erny azzal egszl ki, hogy a fahj s - mg inkbb - a szegfűszeg jelenlte okozta specilis zvilg tolakodstl mentesen, finomra hangolva, mgis hatrozottan van jelen. A trpusi gymlcsk hsnak zamata, a fűszerek termszetes aromi, a koml szoros lelse egy befőttszerű, hagymalekvrhoz hasonlatos, visszafogottan des s pazarul harmonikus kntsben teljesedik ki. Olyasfle csemege ez, melynek kortyolsa nem mindennapi lvezetet jelent, mgis minden egyes nap htattal hdolnnk neki. Rg ittam ilyen remek srt.
