COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Snowbunny Ale exhibits pleasant notes of caramel with a heady vanilla nose which play against a creamy background. Enjoy it on its own or after a meal for the perfect dessert."

From the brewery, "It’s brewed with 2 Row and a large portion of wheat, paired with a few additional specialty grains. Lactose is added during the boil to help give it a creamy character and the beer is aged on Tahitian vanilla beans in secondary."

Deep copper brown with just a trace of white head. The nose has sweet caramel and walnuts. The taste is very sweet with walnuts and toffee. There was also some light pear. Sweet and decent.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness and spice. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, light fruittiness and a hint of spice with a smooth finish.

Draft. Poured a hazy dark orange color with an off white head. Distinct vanilla aroma with a hint of caramel. Reminiscent of a glazed doughnut. For real. medium bodied and slightly sweet with caramel and distinct vanilla flavors. Not my bag.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2010 This one was weird. Amber pour with a good sized off white head. Vanilla really dominates with some cereal grains. Creamy finish, almost like a beer creamsicle. Update! Had the new batch of this. Pretty awesome if you like cherry lip balm coating your mouth. Gross.

(bottle) Pours dark copper with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is a little strange, but it mostly consists of vanilla, beets, and orange creamsicle popsicle stick which intensifies. The taste is fairly sweet, but I didn’t find it as sweet as others have described, with a predominant amount of vanilla, maybe caramel, with some graininess and minerals on the finish before rounding out to a lingering presence of vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is restrained.

Aroma is sweet and full of caramel sweetness. Taste is really sweet with caramel and vanilla playing together well, reminds of a marshmellow beer. Good for a dessert beer.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2010
copper pour with minimal head. Aroma is minimal, light biscuit and caramel maltiness, hint of vanilla and very low hop. Flavour is toasted caramel, pretty sweet off the get go. Some light vanilla in the finish.

fidelis83 (2508) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Pours a clear slightly copperish-amber with a one finger eggshell head that has poor retention. Aroma is vanilla, light grain, definite lacto-sweetness in there, buttery toffee and dulce de leche. Flavor is vanilla, stale bread, light vegetal notes, lacto sweetness, a little grass and an odd rye-like note, not sure if this stuff has rye, but it seems like it toward the finish. Palate is light bodied a little oily feeling on the entry and fairly dry from there out, carbonation levels are light, not too light but a hair on the sharp side. Pretty decent stuff overall, could do without the vegetal notes and back off on the vanilla though.

It’s a beer. Nothing more or less. Others are picking up more aromas and flavors than I do. Poured with a medium to small white head and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber. Aroma is malty and beery. Flavor’s about the same and a touch sweet. Body is decent and so is the carbonation. Finish is ok but with a slight lingering vanilla. Could be a seession if you’re into it or don’t have many alternatives.
