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.

341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. Smells like cinnamon, cloved, vanilla. Tastes like cloves, mellow cake and cinnamon. Cinnamon still lingers on in the finish, along with some bitterness and alcohol. Body is full, frothy mouthfeel. Excellent spiced white, although it looked more golden/blonde to me.

Bottle from King&Godfree. Very tasty, nice spicy flavours. Aromas of coriander, honey, butter, with hints of alcohol and grass. Taste is sweet, with sour notes, long lasting. Palate is oily, with a full body. Amber, with no head.

Pours cloudy orange with a small, off-white head. On the nose we have a blast of cinnamon and clove followed by nutmeg, ginger, coriander, tree sap, medicinal herbs, orange, tropical fruit esters and a touch of yeast funk. Mouth feel is medium with medium to low carbonation. The taste is pure Christmas: gingerbread cookies, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, orange peel, and brown sugar. There is a nice touch of hoppy bitterness near the end. Finish is long and spicy leaving fresh-baked Christmas goods. The most balanced and enjoyable winter beer Ive had thus far. A huge hit of spice without it being overwhelming. Very drinkable.

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.

Creamy, pale and bright body. Enormous, enveloping aroma of cinnamon and cloves and caramel. Very sweet, apple and mince pie flavors, soft and lovely to the tongue. Clean and quick finish that stays with your head and heart long after it has left your tongue. Another wonder-beer from the magician.

Bottle at Hrvati. Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is very rich with a lovely combination of soft cinnamon and clove. There also seems to be a bit of ginger and a lovely bit of malt sweetness. There is a great yeast contribution in here. Moderate bitterness that helps to balance the sweetness. Its a really lovely brew. Rich and pretty delicious. Fairly warming. Me likey.
