"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."

amishcaravan's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
amishcaravan (247) - Winona, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours a cloudy brown color. Kind of looks like apple cider. Thin head that disappears quickly. Scent is of mild vanilla. Taste consists of strong vanilla and little else. A little nutty. Lasting vanilla finish. Decent beer but it does taste like the vanilla is used to cover up the taste of cheap beer.

JPDIPSO (6325) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Vanilla and perfume aromas. Flavors very similar. A touch to much like vanilla syrup. 12/10

Pours a medium brown color with a fast diminishing head. Some scents of roasted malts are evident giving it an almost smoked type of scent. Drinks slightly lighter than a milk stout. You can definitely tell this is a cream ale. The flavor could be a little more bold and the texture could be a little thicker. Definitely something different though.

Patrickctenchi (6867) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours clear copper with tall, off-white head. Scent is caramel, sour grain malt. Taste is strong vanilla, cream soda... Clingy-sweet and sticky. Not too good, way too sweet....

Super super vanilla. Tasted more like root beer than beer. Tough to finish.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2012
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker pint glass. Thanks, I guess, to Benjiehorn (Ben) for passing along this distributor sample. Please don’t pick them up. A: Pours a chilled amber with a one finger, off white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin collar and leaves no lace down the glass. S: Vanilla sweetness, creamy sugar and pale malts with some mild hops. T: More pale malts with a creamy vanilla ice cream finish. There is a buttery like toffee in there giving it an overall cream soda vibe. Not my cup of tea. M: Medium bodied with barely any carbonation. Makes it a little tough to get down, some how it has a drying quality. I really don’t know. O: If you like chalky cream soda, this is your go-to beer. The lack of feel in the mouth really hurt it as well. I hope I don’t see this distributed in Illinois anytime soon. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-01-2012

great caramel vanilla taste, very creamy character to it, very pleasant beer, a little sweet but not over powering

Definitely getting marshmallow on the aroma. Nose at first is almost like cream soda, but quickly becomes boosey and bitter. The transition is a bit shocking and not very pleasant. If thy could get the same nose and aroma and make the beer much, much sweeter, it might work.

Bottle @ Dan’s house, courtesy of pepsiedcan. Thanks man! Clear, burnt orange appearance with little head. Vanilla bean, creamy, light caramel aroma. Tangy, somewhat sour orange, vanilla cream-sickle, fruity, milk sugary flavor. Yuck.

BVery (11608) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a amber-gold color with no head at all. Nose is vanilla, slight caramel, and a sugar sweetness that reminds me of the frosting at Cinnabon. Thinner palate and quite flat on the carbonation. Taste is cream soda like.

BeerInHeaven (531) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2012
pours a deep copper with smallish head. Aroma is a weak chocolate or caramel. Taste is slightly sweet, hints of chocolate and biscuit. Brief finish, forgettable. Not a bad beer, but I probably won’t revisit.
