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.

Slightly cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is punchy spices - cloves, yeast, coriander seed, malt. Flavour is yeasty, spicy, bitter orange and herbs. Its an interesting mix for sure - very complex, and a bit of alcohol warmth in there as well.

There were a bunch of these at my local retailer so I thought Id give one a try. From St. Jerome Quebec, this beer is a great holiday brew. As you can see in the label there are cinnamon and cloves added for flavor. You can certainly tell that theyre in there as soon as you open the bottle. It is really good for the first half of the bottle. The flavor just sort of sits there in your mouth by the end of the bottle though but its probably the light hoppiness mixed with the cloves that seems to get a bit stale. Anyway, for Christmas Eve Id say sure, Id pick up 4 of these for the family but Id stock something else for the rest of the night.

I think ones opinion of this beer will depend on how much one likes the taste of cloves. This beer smells fantastic but I cant say its taste lived up to the aroma for me. The cloves are really dominant with the cinnamon present mostly in the aftertaste. There is a full malt to counterbalance the spices but they are still pretty dominant. Not really my taste in beer but I do appreciate that it is well done.

gramity (1634) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
ours a hazy golden-orange with an average size diminishing white head. Fruity aroma along with spices and mild hops. Flavours sweet and yeasty with a good amount of spices, a bit of maple syrup and a light bitter finish. Medium bodied

Draft - Clove and cinnamon dominate. Clear gold with a thin head. Clove and spices with a bitter bite. A bit over the top on spices but if you like clove and cinnamon you are going to enjoy this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bière blanche voilée à 8,3% alc., format 341 ml. Goût puissant de clou de girofle qui surprend et léger goût de cannelle. Forte effervescence et mousse légère qui s'estompe rapidement. Faible amertume et légèrement sucrée. Une fois de plus, une biere impressionnante au niveau des saveurs de DDC, qui selon moi est faite pour partager a deux étant donné les saveurs intenses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une blanche puissante et bien pice, la Blanche Neige offre des flaveurs de clou de girofle et de cannelle du dbut la fin. Lalcool, inhabituel dans une blanche, est bien contrl, se mlant aux diffrentes saveurs. La bire elle-mme est trouble, de couleur paille tirant sur le dor, et assez paisse. Un dlice hivernal qui ne dtonne pas, mais qui est suffisamment originale et savoureuse pour pleinement mriter sa place dans lexcellente gamme DDC.

BiereLuc (1275) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2013
Orange, ple avec quelques particules en suspension et un faible filet de mousse. Nez pic (cannelle et girole, tel quindiqu) avec une touche de bananes et de levures. En bouche, les pices signent la dcharge sans compromis. Lalcool se dvoile tardivement et steint avec le reste des pices. Une belle bire festive dhiver ni trop subtile ni trop extrme...
